Interaction with Guests
Depends on them, I am a social person but If people want privacy they can have it, but if they want to socialize then I like having people around.
I am right downtown but just far enough a way to avoid the noise.
the main bus HLEMMUR is just 2 min walk away.
And the long distance bus terminal BSI is about 15 min walk away.
For those coming with the flybus they can ask for a dropoff a "Fosshótel Lind" on the next courner
No smocking except on the balcony.
Flexible check-in and check-out times. If nobody if leaving or arriving on the same day, you can check iIn/Out as early as you like. Which can be great for those coming in with the morning flight.
We had a pleasant stay with Daniel, who made us feel at home straightaway with some good strong coffee, a taste of Icelandic schnapps and fermented shark. His apartment is a really short and convenient walk from the city centre. His two chihuahuas were absolutely adorable and welcoming as well.
Daniel is an EXCELLENT host. I have been with my friend and we both are very happy with Daniel. He helped us a lot, he gave us a map with different things to do, he offered himself to drive us to see the northern lights, he brought cupcakes from his mum, he even offered us to use his car to go shopping. He also explained to us different things about the different parts of Iceland.
The house is nice, big and clean. We had our own space but we also could enjoy a chat or a coffee with him or the other tenants in the living room or the kitchen. He has a lot of films and documentaries to watch on the TV, so you couldn't get bored during the night.
The dogs are lovely. The female loves to be cuddled a lot and the male loves to go out with you. They do not bark, unless Daniel make them bark to show you how they speak Icelandic (really funny).
I recommend to everyone who wants to stay in Reykjavik. We had an amazing experience.
Daniel is an EXCELLENT host and communicator. He is very friendly and spent quite a bit of time telling us about the Northern lights and the best option to see them. He even assisted us with making phone calls to inquire about transportation. Although we only stayed one night, we had a wonderful stay. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. His chihuahuas made my day! Please give the chis a kiss for me. Would love to come back to stay again. Thanks Daniel! :)
Daniel is very friendly and informative about the country. The room was roomy and clean. He also has two very cute, well-behaved dogs.
I enjoyed so much with him for my first Iceland trip. I love 2 dogs too! I highly recommend to stay at his place. Thank you so much, Daniel!
Daniel was a great host, very accommodating to our religious needs and requirements. We stayed for over a week and had a blast, his 2 little co-hosts are adorable and we will miss them greatly! They like meat more than fish! Daniel also let us have a copy of one of his books so that we would have something to read on Shabbat!
Can't wait to be back next year!
Staying with Daniel was like staying with an old friend. His house was very nice and convenient for exploring the city and Daniel himself was always ready with a cup of coffee and some company. Not only did he give great suggestions and insights into Reykjavik he even cooked us breakfast one morning and took us out for ice cream another night. His two Chihuahuas were friendly and loving and always ready to cuddle. If we ever go back to Iceland we are definitely staying with Daniel.

I am 42 year old currently doing a phd in computational genetics. I love outdoor activity such as biking hiking and swimming in the sea. I am easygoing host and try to be non intrusive but many people that have stayed here have joined me on hiking or sea swimming trips :) The two tiny dogs that live here are 1,6 and 2,1 Kg they do not bark at people the see all guests as new friends and potential source of petting.
