About House of the Spirits Guesthouse

We offer affordable student housing in the heart of Reykjavík.
Our apartments are all located in two houses side by side in downtown Reykjavík. All the apartments are at minimum furnished with a bed, closet, desk and a chair. Kitchens in shared apartments and the kitchenettes in the studio apartments are well fit out with cooking equipment and utensils. All utilities and high speed internet connection is included in the rent. The guesthouse gets its namesake from the Icelandic Society for Psychical Research which used to reside in the house.

Our options

Studio Apartment

Exceptions to that rule can be made under agreed upon arrangements. All apartments have access to a shared laundry room with multiple washing machines and dryers.

Room in a shared apartment

Private bedroom in a shared apartment. Tenants share a kitchen and bathroom (including shower) with up to two other rooms. Each room is strictly intended for one person only. Tenants have a shared responsibility to keep all common areas clean and tidy. All rooms have access to a shared laundry room with multiple washing machines and dryers.


We are very proud of our location, in the centre of Reykjavik city, a few minutes walking distance to all major tourist attractions, museums and most popular restaurants – but still in a quiet residential area. University of Iceland is approximately a 10 minutes walk away. Many af the major bus lines stop very close to our location giving easy access to the rest of the city.
