Hands down the best hostel I've ever stayed at around the world. There is nothing to fault here. I booked for a week and stayed for two. If you happen to be lucky enough to get a bed/room when Airwaves is on, you'll be in for a treat as bands/acts/djs are playing here throughout the festival. Would recommend to anyone from any nation/background/genre/walk of life - you won't be disappointed.


Have stayed in a few in Reykjavik now and definitely my favourite so far. Lobby is beautifully decorated and has a very welcoming and communal feel to it. They hold concerts free of charge and it really says something about the place that locals love it too. Highly recommended hostel. Will be staying here again when I return to Reykjavik.


Bara is the best!!
