The room is enough space, clean, the kitchen is useful. There is a washing machine and dryer which was good condition but it costs 1000ISK expensive! The staff is very kind and helpful with smile I was impressed. Very cozy hostel I think I will be back again!

The hostel location is great! Tons of places nearby for dining, pubs, grocery and shops. The staff was not particularly helpful with us, so I gave a lower rating on that portion. The lockers were small, but big enough to fit electronics seperate of the luggage. Great room, loved the seperate handicap washroom with shower and seat. Was great since I had a broken foot while staying there. The main dining/bar area was loud on the saturday evening, but not too loud that we couldnt sleep (2 flr)

From the staff to the rooms we were very pleased with this hostel. We booked all of our tours via reception and there was no problem on any occasion.

The hostel was brilliant but to be a hostel,i reckon very expensive,since our room wasn't made and breakfast doesn't come included.Iceland should change prices if they want more customers.

Great location, close to the harbour and the key shopping streets. The staff were super friendly and helpful, particularly when it came to booking tours or transport. The dorms were a little more traditional, but i appreciated the large lockers for storing stuff and they were kept very clean. I would stay here again.

This hostel was a great choice for me. It was located in a good spot, walking distance to everything. Staff was always around, and were friendly and helpful when approached with questions. The 10 person dorm room was clean and mostly quiet. Bathroom was clean, wifi access was good. Overall a positive stay!

My friend and I stayed 2 nights in one of their mixed dorm-style rooms. Everything was clean, they have very friendly people working at the desk, and a coffee bar in the lobby. Free wifi was also a plus! The only downside was that the room (which held 10 beds) only had one bathroom (toilet + shower), which only one person could use at a time, so in high traffic times, it was a bit difficult to get going. Overall, it was a great stay and the hostel is located just 2 blocks from the city square.
