Great stay, quite far from city center but very nice and quite area. Special thanks to Irek (night guy) for welcoming check in !


Good price, very clean and the staff is always helpful.


You definitely get what you paid for. As a cheaper option it was clean enough and the staff were nice. The location was not convenient for those unwilling to spend money on a cab. There's no door separating the outside to the downstairs common area and the room itself does not lock, therefore you don't have a room key and random people NOT staying at the hostel area walk in at any time. The beds squeak too much so try and avoid bunks 13/14 which is the worst!


Nice place

My friend and I stayed in the hostel for 5 nights and it was amazing. The kitchen downstairs was clean and well-equipped and boxes are provided to keep our stuffs in the fridge. Also, breakfast buffet is included in our room rate and that's so nice and have many choices. Yet, the location isn't in the city center and takes around 20-25 minutes to get there and around 10 minutes to the closest supermarket. It's fine if you traveled with a car or have pick up service for tour.


Nice kitchen. Friendly environment. Some toilets do not have hot showers. Guys showers are semi open concept.


It is about 20 mins walk to Reykjavik city center but if you don't mind this fact it is a great cheap hostel.


This hostel has a very hotel kinda vibe (maybe its because they also offer hotel accomodation type of rooms). Amazingly clean, super friendly staff, and secure. Its far from the town centre but nothing a good bus ride can't make up for.


The Capital-Inn in Reykjavik, Iceland is excellent hostel overall with poor location made up for by outstanding staff and atmosphere. highly recommended.


thank you for not chlorinating the water, it was very gentle on my skin.


Guys who works in the reception are so unpleasant and not polite.
