Although very far from town and lacking in atmosphere, the Capital Inn is half the price of most hostels in Reykjavik and worth it if you're looking to save money. If you've got the extra cash though it would probably be worth it to stay in the downtown area.


You get what you pay for. It is ok.


The beds are uncomfortable, the location is very far from the city centre, the staff are extremely unwelcoming (except for the manager/owner, he was great. Everyone else seemed like you were wasting their time by asking a question). None of the doors were ever locked, one of the rooms the door didn't even close. This isn't a huge issue in Reykjavik because it's very safe, but in any other city I wouldn't have felt secure. Generally it was an average at best experience.


The breakfast is good! And the tour is great !


really far away from the city


Excellent value for Money! Friendly Staff, Nice kitchen and cool people there. I'll go back there for sure on my next trip to Iceland.


The hostels website says it is close to the centre of town, which normall when someone says a "close walk" they mean 5-15 minutes or so. The hostel was a 50 minute walk into town... I have no problem walking, but when you have to walk 50 minutes just to get into town when you are lead to believe it "close" was a bit misleading. Also the beds for the hostel part of the place are awful! There was hair on our sheets! Ew! The staff was nice though!


The bed was really uncomfortable, the rest was good.


The WIFI sucks! It was very unsteady and we have to go to the 1st floor to connect since the routers in other floors did not work. And sometimes the WIFI in the entire building did not work! Also, the kitchen is dirty and there were not enough tools for cooking. The 3-bed private room is quite comfortable, though the staff are not very friendly.
