Nothing overwhelming about this hostel, but there aren't too many options in Reykjavik. Generally an older crowd with an odd mix of folks at the hostel's restaurant. The rooms and facilities were clean which is the most important thing to me.


Excellent ambience, where the travellers can mingle and meet one another. Good location, good view. Value for money. You have your own lockers as well, remember to bring your own lock! A few things to take note is that you have to pay quite a bit for laundry and breakfast. Other than that, its an awesome value for money hostel to stay at.

Super cool place, always things going on but never in a distracting way. Had an environment conducive to meeting fantastic people. Great staff- front desk people were always knowledgable and other staff was awesome. Loved Philipp!
