The hostel was great and very friendly staff. We enjoyed the happy hour at the bar!

Not the best location - you're at least a 15 minute walk from the city center & you have to cross some major roads to get there. Security not ideal - extremely frustrating room key, had to lower my shoulder into the door to gain entry. Too few bathrooms on site, so be prepared to wait, especially if they're booked up. On the flipside, atmosphere is excellent - bar in the lounge downstairs. Rooms were spacious & clean. Staff was very helpful. A good, but not perfect choice for visiting Reykjavik.

The hostel structure is really good as a whole. The staff were really helpful and the location is really good. The only bad thing is the fact that you have to pay for a blanket or duvet, which is pretty pathetic... But apart from that is a good hostel.

The hostel is very clean!! which is great. and the common area is very nice, with a bar and lots of cosy furniture. One thing to be aware of is that they dont provide a towel or a bed sheet or duvet. so if you don't have a sleeping bag be prepared to pay an extra £5 for a duvet. The hostel is very near the bus station in Reykjavik which is convenient and the staff were very helpful. considering how expensive everything in Iceland is, the hostel is very good value for money

Only downside is that you had to pay extra for bedsheets and key to locker. Otherwise we were more than happy with our stay!

More effort has been put into the common room then dorms. Only a few power sockets in dorm, not even enough for one each. No lamps on dorm so main lights are being turned on during the night waking you up. Bathroom and kitchen great!

Best hostel ever! Spacious, clean rooms and beds. Toilets and Kitchen, well supplied and well maintained. Great common room and bar, with a rustic ambiance. Its slightly outside the city centre. But all is not lost, this location puts it right next to the Pearl (or Perlan),a beautiful landmark of Reykjavik with a revolving restaurant and great viewing deck with panoramic views of the city. There is also a great "off the beaten path" kind of thermal beach within walking distance.

Nice Hostel, we had a double-room, it is clean, top bathrooms on the floor, friendly stuff and good prices (for Reykjavik). Not far from the center. Good choice!

Definitely recommend this to people who drive. However, if you do not drive, it can be a pain having to walk approx 30 min at fast pace in the snow, or worse, caught in a terrible snow storm if you are unlucky. Convenient store and supermarkets are approximately 30 minutes away on fast pace.

Super comfortable place, very helpful and friendly staff, and the facilities are far above most hostels I've been to. It's a short walk into the downtown and not far from grocery stores or anything else you'd need. I'd stay here again for sure!

Hostel was overall a good place to stay in Iceland, and by far the cheapest of the options available in otherwise expensive country.. the environment in the bar was chilled, it was easy to wind down over a good beer but sleeping was sometimes difficult with late check-ins and the window that I found hard to sleep next to with traffic and loud cars driving past.

a short walk to the city centre, but making people pay for a duvet?! Are you serious?!

The hostel is very clean and not too much of a walk from the city centre. The rooms are warm with comfy beds and heaps of space. The common area is nicely decorated and incredibly cosy. Thoroughly recommended to stay here!

I would suggest an individual lamp in each bed in the dormitory rooms and to also make sure that people do not party loudly after 23 pm or so!!

very nice place, little bit outside the centre, but then Reykjavík isn´t that big either. Lots of concerts during Airwaves Festival. Nice, helpful staff. Very good atmosphere in the bar. kitchen might be a bit crowded during lunch and dinner, but so what? Never had to wait for bathroom or toilet. Would go there again.

Fantastic experience - wonderful hostel, great main room for socializing, the staff is incredible - Ricardo was particularly terrific. We were a party of 4 and got our own room all to ourselves, which was amazing. The bathrooms are spotless, large, and plentiful. All in all we had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend this hostel. Be aware that it is outside the main downtown "core" of Reykjavik - about a 15 min walk - but it's a pleasant walk and gives you a quieter stay in return.

Very clean and well lit hostel. About 10-15 min walk to city center. Private shower and toilet for each bathroom, which was great.
