Looking for an accomodation in Reykjavík - any other websites?

Hey there,
I'm a 25-year-old student from Germany and I'm coming to Reykjavík from August to October for an intership. So I'm looking for an affordable room in a shared flat. I already posted an ad in classified, but maybe someone could recomend other easy ways to look for a room? In Germany we have some websites especially for finding room- and flatmates, is there something similar for Iceland?
Best regards
Julia

the most common sites for finding housing and flatmates are:

bland.is (free)
leigulistinn.is (costs 4200 kr to access for a month and seems to require a kennitala to register)
leiga.is (free)
facebook groups (free)

I've used leigulistinn and leiga to find apartments myself. All of these except the fb groups will definitely require learning some Icelandic housing words. You're looking for "herbergi" or a room. Here's an example of the only one currently listed on leiga:

Thank you! I will try these :)
