We had a lovely few nights here. Staff were so friendly and helpful, rooms were simple, clean and warm. Refillable coffee in the morning was lovely and we even got it to take-away for our early morning tour. Breakfast looked delicious and good value although we didn't have time to sample More

Absolutely nothing bad to say about this hostel: great and patient staff, excellent atmosphere, clean, perfect location. Enjoy the musical performances, hanging out with locals, and If you're lucky like I was, you may even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights from the deck! Highly More

Definitely recommend this to people who drive. However, if you do not drive, it can be a pain having to walk approx 30 min at fast pace in the snow, or worse, caught in a terrible snow storm if you are unlucky. Convenient store and supermarkets are approximately 30 minutes away on fast More

For the price, this hostel was the best overall in Reykjavik. Free food boxes, massive kitchens, nice rooms, we got upgraded to a better room for the same money as the cheapest 6-man rooms. Staff were helpful with their seemingly endless supply of maps to circle all the fun things. More

Room had not been cleaned yet when we came in, and unfortunately the cleaner later on turned out to have thrown away our food which was in the fridge. More
