Gudrun and Fergus own this guesthouse. Very nice. The have shared bathroom ( water is pumped through the by the city from the geothermal pools under the ground so has a sulfur smell), shared kitchen and 2 shared meeting rooms. All very clean. Centrally located to downtown Reykjavik. We are practically the only ones there so we got separate rooms! Their kitty Pumpkin is sweet snd wanders around.
