The hostel was in a fab location, really easy to find and an extremely short walk to the main streets. The staff were wonderful, couldn't do enough to help and always free to offer advice on trips, places to eat and things to visit in the city. The rooms were beautiful too, and the place was immaculate. There was always music and people about on the night and events every night, but I can't really comment as most nights were spent away looking for the northern lights. I would defiantly go back.

Great hostel in the harbour area, staff very helpful in helping us navigate public transport and book excursions. Loved the separate kitchen room, and we cooked a lot to save money in expensive Reykjavik. Hostel was nice and warm, and our room had a view overlooking the street with a peek too of the sea and mountains. Quieter than The Loft Reykjavik, which we also stayed in.

The staff was really really nice, helpful, day and night. The fact that there is a kitchen available to cook yourself is a pleasure to use. The rooms are nice and cosy.
