    The woman who checked us in was very friendly and accommodating. Room was clean and comfortable, and the kitchens were large and well-stocked.

    I loved this hostel. It’s right in the old part of Borgarnes and it’s easy to walk around and go to shops from there. Staff was very nice, especially Nina- she was so kind and welcoming. Very chill vibe. Would stay here again.

    Stayed two nights and loved it. Great value for the money. The room was large and had a nice window looking into the courtyard. Kitchen was large and had everything we needed. The staff was really friendly and I enjoyed talking with them. I would definitely stay at this location again.

    Perfect hostel well located for a trip around the west coast. Kitchen and lounge were awesome. The staff were really great and allowed us to sleep in the lounge when we encountered the worst snorer ever (it was out of this world awful). Security isn't really an issue in Iceland but would be better to have lockers in the room or a door that locks automatically. Our room was probably unlocked the whole time. Highly recommend this place and would stay again.

    It's very strange, because I only saw members of the staff 2 times. When I checked in (earlier than usually allowed, thanks!) and one time when they cleaned everything. The other time I was alone with a handful other guests, which was quite funny. Free rent of mountain bikes (amazing!!!) and three fully equipped guest kitchens, which were very clean. Nice rooms without lockers.

    On the ground floor is the reception, kitchen, dining and living areas which are really nice and modern. free tea/coffee and lots of recycling. Upstairs where the bedrooms are is completely different. Very old interior, feels like an old hospital. Only a few toilets/showers but wasn’t a problem when I stayed as it wasn’t too busy. All tap water in Iceland comes from ground springs, but in Borgarnes it has an especially strong sulphuric smell. That being said it is supposedly very good for you.

    Big hostel, good facilities - decent sized kitchen. No lockers in rooms though. The place was not staffed when we were there as it was low season. Not a whole lot to see in Borganes - makes for an ok pit stop though
