For the price, this place isn't bad. My biggest disappoints for this place were; unfriendly/too direct reception (only of the front desk people), terrible showers (temperature and pressure would constantly and drastically change when others were using the water), and poor ventilation in the basement area. Otherwise the breakfast is great, everyone else was super friendly, and the location is walking distance to the city center (if you don't mind walking for a bit).

Very stuffy in the room and smelly, no community feeling and lack of lockers so slept with my bag.

Not a bad place, especially considering the price. It may be a bit out of the city, but you can rent a bike or simply walk there (I'd prefer the latter). Everything was adequete, although the hot water would sometimes stop working entirely in the showers, and the restaurant didn't exactly work on schedule, which was a real shame.

Wet sheets, rude Turkish (or whatever) man on reception, sticky tables in the kitchen. Our tea and bread were gone from the table in the shared room. Beds are shaking when the person above/below you moves. No bus station nearby, only a graveyard. Not a place to recommend.

Not enough power plugs in the room, people were basically scrounging and fighting for available plugs. Ventilation in the shared room is not good. Men's bathroom shower needs more privacy. The glass divider between the shower is shaded, but still see through enough that it violates your privacy. Also one of the shower doesn't have hot water. Security is non-existent, but its Iceland so I'm not too worried. People can walk in and out without keys.

The people are kind and helpful. The kitchen and bedrooms are moderately clean, but there are no lockers in the bedrooms and the front door is always open.

The worst mattress I have ever slept on. They accept super late check in, so you have to expect travelers may arrive at the hostel at 2am, waking you up. The staff mixed things up and made someone took over my bed without any acknowledgement. Strangers always sleep in the hostel secretly, the security is really poor. The location sucks, don't be fooled by the description, you need to walk 50 mins downtown.

The staff at Capital-Inn are extremely friendly and extremely helpful. The kitchen facilities left a little to be desired as I could not find any pots to use while I was there. The location is nice and downtown is about an hour's walk away.

The Capital Inn is very much a "get what you pay for" hostel. It's great if you're just looking for a place to sleep and shower and won't be spending a lot of time hanging out in it. It's clean, beds are decent, and the hot water works, which are the most important things (to me at least). It is about a 40 minute walk from downtown Reykjavik but you can take the bus #18 downtown for 420 kr. The doors lock manually which is concerning for larger rooms, and you have to pay daily to ren

They need better mattresses. The ones there are only 2-3 inches thick and you can feel the wire under frame.
