What a great stay! I was a bit pensive about staying in the 10-bed mixed dorm but it was fine! Other travellers were quiet and respectful. Our room was cleaned every day. The staff were so helpful, offering lots of great suggestions and booking all of my tours on my behalf. The kitchen was More

Very clean hostel and well located. Staff could be abrupt and rude. Didn't feel the breakfast provided any real value for money. A lot of it was recycled from the previous day. More

Great place to stay in the capital. A convenient location not far from the centre and the staff are very helpful and overall, it's very comfortable. Perhaps the bathrooms could be cleaner but being a edgier, less modern establishment adds to the overall atmosphere. The bar is always lively More

The hostel is in a good location and each of the beds (in the dorms) have their own lamp and plug. The wifi worked quite well also. The breakfast was great, a big selection (but also quite expensive (you can up just up the street and pay half the price... probably for half the quality, More

I chose this hostel because it's close to the BSI Bus Station (a main transportation hub) as well as a competitive price. It’s not that far from the downtown core, another plus. I found staff quite friendly and helpful, and the complimentary breakfast (you pay for the coffee, but free More

Very cozy hostel, not in the middle of everything but close enough to walk to most places. I would recommend staying here if visiting Reykjavik. More

Pros: Double rooms in the backyard are very quiet :-) Cons: Room had just 2 beds + one chair - no table, no more chairs, not even a wardrobe or at least a hook for wet clothes... More

I had a blast staying at Reykjavik Backpackers. The atmosphere was perfect for a holiday weekend in the city. It's a great base location and close to everything. The facilities were just right for what we needed. The bar/lobby was a great place to start an evening out on the town More
