We had a good stay here, staff were efficient if not the friendliest we've ever come across. You can get a breakfast for £5 which is probably one of the cheapest in the city centre. It's useful to be able to cook as well as meals out are so expensive. Really good location and we didn't find it too noisy as night.

Had a great stay at this hostel, best location out of all the hostels in the city being on a main street whilst also being cheaper.


The hostel did not reflect the high rating here. The kitchen was very small, only one person could realistically use it at a time, or one tending to the stove-top and one person at the sink. Also during my visit there wasn't a toaster nor kettle available. There were small lockers for rent outside of the rooms, and top sheets and a duvet were also an additional fee. Accounting for these costs, there were much better and cheaper options available very nearby in Reykjavik.


Me and my friend stayed in one of the private twin rooms. We loved it, we had our own balcony and the room and beds were fresh. We loved that the private rooms were in a small cozy building outside of the hostel so you got privacy. The location is Amazing!! Would recommend this hostel.


The staff didn´t seem to be bothered to help you and if you asked a question they always helped but made it seem as if you were an annoyance. The location is great for going out to shops or drinks down town. There were no lockers in the room which sort of sucked! This meant you couldn´t even lock up your passport.
