    Great place with flexibility for our Northern Lights expeditions. No frills but clean and the location is outstanding. The staff treated us very well. I highly recommend this hostel for their location and flexibility. And Bogarnes is a lovely town. Go to the culture museum for a great meal, only two blocks downtime street from this hostel.

    There is basically no body who works here but the check in and out is smooth as it gets. We were able to walk 5 minutes towards the sea and see the Northern lights which was spectacular. Place was kinda empty but everyone was friendly. A mild vibe but everyone is also keeping to themselves.

    This was our last Hostel-Stay of our trip around Iceland. Staff was friendly and the beds nice. The kitchen though didn't offer much equipment that was workin, the fridge was so smelly with leftover takeaway food who nobody seemed to clear out and in general also the drawers were not that clean. First hostel where I felt the need to clean stuff up before using them.

    One of the worst hostels I’ve stayed at. The reviews do not reflect the actual state of this hostel. It’s quite dirty and each room has this god awful smell. Do yourself a favour and don’t stay at this place.
