Excellent hostel! It was very clean, and everything was organized quite well, including checkin, checkout, storing bags, getting towels, etc. The breakfast, pizzas and beer available in the lounge were all great too, and inexpensive (especially compared to the prices in the rest of Iceland!)

Standard Hotels offered through misterb&b

Because we foster the largest community of gay travelers, we need to ensure all are welcome anywhere they go. Of course you may search for a private room or a full apartment from our gay and gay-friendly hosts. But sometimes, you would rather search for a hotel in a particular location or with certain amenities.

To help in your search we have selected a few standard hotels that we believe are a good fit for LGBTQ+ travelers.

Why did we select these hotels?
Because of their location, services, amenities, rates, and overall good reputation, we believe these hotels can appeal to LGBTQ+ travelers. At this point though, we haven’t been able to vet their welcoming attitude and acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community.
We also help ensure hotels with a history of homophobic behavior, or whose owners are homophobic, are not listed on misterb&b.

When booking with misterb&b, you help support organizations fighting for LGBTQ+ rights around the world.
Find out about Mister for Good initiative in the footer and help start building tomorrow's world by making a donation.
Supporting the community is not just about survival, it's also about thriving, empowering and making a difference.
