It was a lovely place to stay with a really good value for money. The location worth everything! I'd recommend to everyone.

Location was great, right next to the Hlemmur bus station and within walking distance to most of downtown Reykjavik. The 12 bed dorm I stayed in was spacious, and even had an armchair and a couch in it as well as sink, which was a nice touch. My only qualm is that the security should have been tighter, anyone from the public space downstairs could access the hostel hallways, and a friend who was in another room woke to find a homeless dude/transient sleeping on their room's couch one night. >.

Had an awesome time here and overall really loved Iceland! Lovely atmosphere, excellent food in the restaurant. Clean kitchen and shower facilities, although the bathrooms could use some love.

The staff were all very helpful! Only downsides are it was a bit far from some of the central city things and the bathrooms were a bit messy.

Really great location on the main road of Reykjavik. The staff aren't very friendly but they do their job, I didn't have any issues but it wasn't the best. The atmosphere is alright, because it's a hotel too. If you want to meet people stay in the large dorms! However it's clean, safe and located right next to the bus station and near to a grocery store.

This was the perfect hostel. Nice lounge areas, friendly and super helpful/knowledgeable staff who are always around to help. Good bed linens, clean bathrooms, and free breakfast! Also in a really central location. What else can you ask for?

Front desk staff was friendly. They let you keep your luggage in a locked room if you are too early to check in. Right next to a bus stop and convenience store. Showers were always clean.

It's quite nice; the room is big enough that you don't feel crowded even it's a 14-bed room. Right opposite to the hostel there is a convenient store, where you can find some cheap meals. Not located exactly in the city centre but the walk to there is nice. Doable walk to the BSI Bus terminus that goes to the airport and the blue lagoon.

Was not very clean. Quite a social place. The staff at the front desk were very helpful with planning tours and activities.

Great staff and location, bathrooms could be a lot cleaner, fairly loud on the 3rd floor where I stayed, but the 4th floor was much quieter in general. Overall, great value for the price. Would stay here again with a request to stay on the 4th floor.
