The Hostel was realy nice and the staff super friendly. It is about 10-15 minutes out of town, but it's easy to walk the distance.

It was my first time in a Hostel... And it was a very good experience ! The staff is incridibly friendly, gives you advices, tells you the best places to see and helps you if you need it. Kitchen has everything you need. The main room definitly has it's own atmosphere, very pleasant. In the evening you light the candells which adds an even better feeling. I loved my stay there !

Hostel was nice and clean, staff was very friendly. However the hostel did not include any linens and for the price I could have stayed somewhere else and have received linens. Also no individual amps so annoying having to use the main light and wake people up. Overall would stay there again just need to pack a towel, pillowcase and some warm sleepwear

Thank you so much. So sorry you were annoyed though... We do lend guests little flash-lights, sad you missed out. Hope to see you again and love from the Bus.

Overall very nice and trouble-free experience, however toilets and showers are together which means the bathrooms get crowded pretty quickly. No store or food joint of any kind nearby, so plan ahead.

I've been traveling for a while. 3 months to be exact and through 38 other countries before I got to Iceland. I've seen a lot of hostels lately so I think it's fair when I say that the Bus Hostel Reykjavik is top class. The beds are nice and big, the wifi speed is very good, the atmosphere is superb in the kitchen as well as the common rooms... I have a lot of good to say about this hostel...but you should probably just get here and see it for yourself.

The staff at this hostel are very friendly. Sophie and Diego in particular were so accommodating and helpful. This place has a good vibe. Don't worry about it being a bit far from the city center. The 20 minute walk is interesting enough and it will do you good. You also pass the all important BSI bus terminal along the way, not to mention the fact that this hostel is only about 10 minutes from the Perl Center. The design of the hostel in Scandinavian wood minimalist, and quite cool : )

staff was great. i felt safe and comfortable the whole time. the free bikes are very useful. they can book all your tours and give you good info. some complain about location but i prefer having a 15 minute walk to town. also 5 minutes from the best view in town.
