Great choice for Iceland. Everything you need in a hostel. Beds have there own lockable drawers, power point and light. Rooms are big and spacious. Kitchen was a disaster as everything was broken but I know everything was getting replaced the day after I left. Very close walking distance to most places. DONT use the supermarket across the road, it's triple the price. Use Bonus, a 10 minute walk up the road. Some Staff do need a lesson on customer service. Some couldn't be bothered to help.

Positives: -Really fast free wifi - decent location - free map of the city Negatives:-quite expensive but everything is in iceland, a simple breakfast of juice cereal bread and eggs will set u back 1800kr about $15..... and if u want to rent a towel that's another 500kr about $5.... and in terms of customer service there was a girl with glasses who could show some enthusiasm and maybe smile a bit but the other people were friendly enough.

I loved Hlemmur Square! I stayed in a 14-bed mixed dorm, which I worried would be cramped but was very spacious and open. All the beds have individual lights, which makes going to bed late or getting up early past ordinary hours super easy without bothering other guests. This is also one of the most popular/best-known spots for tour companies to pick up, an easy walk to downtown, and directly across the street from a 24-hour convenience store (which makes up for the expensively priced breakfast)

The staff here are amazing. Cleanliness wasn't a high point but it was because of other travellers not staff. Beds were comfy. If you don't mind walking it is a good location but be prepared to walk 10-20 minutes to get into the heart of downtown.

The room was big and it was good with a light and outlet at every bed. It was warm in the room and the bed was comfortable. The place is good but the kitchen is not very nice.

I had a really great stay here!! Everyone was so friendly and that made a big difference. It's not the cleanest, but fine for a hostel. Kitchen is great and there's extra food in there. Bless those square meals for 900 isk they were amazing. It's a pretty good location too. Just remember to bring your own lock.

Excellent Location. Stylish and impressive lobby/bar/reception. The hostel block is OK although dated and not very clear to navigate at times. The 4-bed dorm was OK although there were water pipes above my head which were gushing all night. The biggest problem for me were the toilets/showers. The toilets were next to the windows (not frosted glass!) so essentially you could be seen on the toilet from the street! Not great. And the showers were just a series of shower curtains, so no privacy.

Warm, comfortable, and in prime location. You will get great value for your money and the staff are always available and willing to help with whatever you need. Bathrooms and the kitchen are sometimes a little messy, but the availability of facilities is incredibly helpful.

Very nice, modern hostel. 2min away from the main street, markets are close. Very cosy living room and bar downstairs. Only one minus: wifi is not working well in the rooms.
