Great location. Internet super fast. Construction outside sucked in the morning. Great facilities for everything and super helpful staff.

Walking tour was missed on my first time trying to take part--essential part of a hostel stay as a lone traveler needs a friendly environment to meet people. It was missed because of bad information from the reception--was told to wait nearby, but nothing happened. Other than that, I had an excellent time. I came in late June, and there were many annoying pretentious American girls in the main area, but meeting other people made up for it.
Awesome hangout, awesome venue, awesome drinks, awesome food. Slightly difficult to meet people in the common area, must depend on hanging out in the room or at the bar. KEX is probably the best overall hostel here.
1. Many like-minded people stay here, and the bulletin boards help with people who are wanting to travel Iceland independently of tour companies with other people. 2. Breakfast here was 'Group Only'. No breakfast for guests because the kitchen was closed; after food left out in hostel fashion in the main lobby, people were told they couldn't eat it, even when there was much left over. 3. Not many opportunities for people to make friends except maybe in the room.
Excellent! Would stay again.
