Had a nice stay at the Idglo Guesthouse with a friend for two nights after we had a bit trouble finding the place. It's not that beautiful but very clean and there's everything a traveler needs. The staff is always helpful and up for some good conversation. Location is OK, since Reykjavik isn't that big.


The man in charge of the property was exceeding kind and attentive. I was so awed and blessed by his graciousness, and truly enjoy my stay at Igdlo. I wish I could have stayed lounger! I was sad to go, and almost 'homesick' for the guesthouse as I moved on through Iceland, because it felt so safe and had so many resources, and a great room :) Breakfast in the morning was amazing, as well. Thank you!


Perfect for your stay in Reykjavik!


The best Stay on my whole journey!!! Only 8 min. walk from the Main Bus Station.


My husband and our two adult children stayed at the Igdlo guesthouse in Reykjavik. The staff was very helpful, the location was perfect and it was very clean. I will definitely stay there when we return to Iceland. I highly recommend this guesthouse!!!

Lovely hostel, the staff are fantastic and so helpful! Very clean and comfortable rooms (THE best bed I've ever had in a hostel, it was huge and so soft) and right near the main bus station, which is excellent. Plenty of kitchen space, the bathrooms are clean and wifi works well in the rooms. A short, easy walk into town - would happily stay here again!
