Clean with good facilities but far from downtown. Very loud, walls are paper thin. At night it was a zoo with people running around till 1am. The water lines would rumble whenever a shower was turned on. I usually could care less to write a review about a place but when you get 3 hours of sleep and pay 5800 krones for a night stay, I expect a little better. I understand this is a hostel and can be loud but that was ridiculous.

loveliest girl behind reception, place was very clean and bathrooms even had hairdryers and floor towels. such a great place!


Very nice hostel. Only 25 minutes walk from the other end of town and 5 from a big supermarket. Very friendly staff. Lots of facilities to use and very nice common room.


We got charged extra 1000 ISK per person for the linen - this is not specified ANYWHERE on the hostelworld page and was really annoying (not to mention quite expensive).
