It was very nice experience. Stuff ready to help and suggest. Not the best location but anyway it was very nice.


great price for staying in reykjavik for couple days! nice staff and they were very helpful! the people were nice also! room was so clean and comfortable!


Bring your own linen! Nice place to stay in the city. It is a bit of a walk to the city center it was ok, I went walking to the city center everyday. Right next to the best swimming pool complex in town. Good kitchen facilities. Not a lot going on so for solo traveler might be a bit too quiet.


Very helpful and friendly staff. The hostel was far nicer then we expected, really lovely atmosphere, decoration and facilities. Got upgraded room without asking. Definitely recommend

I found the staff to be very helpful and in general the hostel was very clean and new looking. Overall, quite a nice place to stay except for the location being a little awkward in relation to the city centre.


The staff were really friendly and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them and they were knowledgeable about the area so were able to recommend appropriate things to do. The hostel had a really relaxed atmosphere everyone talked to everyone. It was a little out of the way but I'm so glad that I stayed there!


i like this hostel very much! They r very friendly,

The staff was extremely helpful to us. The hostel is places outside the city center, but there is a bus stop next to the hostel so it didn't bother us.


Breakfast buffet was great - 1450ISK is worth the selection. I would recommend it most for guests who have early morning tours and need a good breakfast before heading out. The hostel was quite a walk from the city center - great fitness, but not during winter. Downtown HI hostel is much better located. Staff are helpful - will answer questions, but HARDLY seem enthusiastic when offering support. I would recommend doing your own research/booking tours online yourself, before asking for help.
