The hostel was fine itself: it was clean, had places to hang out outside of the rooms, and had a kitchen open to guests staying. However, it was not a walk away from the city like the website says but rather a bus ride, which kept adding up money being spent. Also the staff members that I had encounters with were extremely unfriendly and quite rude.

Friendly atmosphere, helpful staff, comfortable beds and warm rooms with good reading lights. The location was some way out of town but had a good bus service and the big plus was that it was next to the large swimming pool complex. An excellent base for a few days exploring Reykjavik. Kitchen could do with a bit more equipment. Flybus connections for airport and days out leaving from bus station. Very good breakfasts (additional charge). Excellent value.

Great hostel to stay at! Reception staff were super helpful, especially Benjamin, who went out of his way to sort out or numerous requests and booking our excursions. 10 minute bus ride away from Reykjavik downtown, and really close to the main bus station, which comes in handy when you're having a tour. Definately would come back on return to Iceland.

As a 60 year old travelling with two adult sons I was worried about putting myself outside my comfort zone and staying in a hostel as opposed to a hotel. .I was so surprised! There was nothing to worry about.The rooms were very clean,the beds were comfortable and the breakfastbuffet was fresh! A someone who enjoys conversation with others I found the reception staff somewhat hesitant to engage in conversation unless they were selling tourpackages ot even smile. A small issue for some but i

A lovely relaxed hostel, wonderful communal areas. Good sized kitchens, minor drawback - no ovens. Lcoated a little way out of town - about a 5 minute drive which is well advertised & so expected.

The hostel is Okay, the vibe is weird if no absent. This is a typical HI (hosteling international) hostel. The facility are good but the location is not (20-30 min by walk from the city of Reykjavik). And this is not the type of place where you can socialize easily. The MAIN positive point is the fact than one of the best thermal swimming pool is situated at 20 sec of the hostel, So good hostel to go before to flight from Reykjavik, you can enjoy the swimming pool then leave to Keflavik

A hike from town and pretty far even from any restaurants or cheap grocerys. Other than that great! The beds were very comfortable and there was everything you need to cook with.

Overall a fine place to stay. More dorm-like than a warm-home feel which I prefer.
