    Dalur was a great place to stay with my 3 children. Our private family room was good value for money and had comfortable bunk beds and our own toilet, sink and nice shower. The hostel was clean and friendly and we loved the outdoor spaces. We liked the location, in a quiet, green area near an amazing outdoor pool, and it was a nice walk to the city centre and supermarket. Communal kitchens could perhaps be better stocked- there weren’t many pans, bowls. Overall a great place to stay!

    Generally the hostel is in a very good location, especially we loved the closeness to the local swimming pool. Very friendly and helpful staff, good facilities, having option to wash and dry your clothes is amazing. Quite limited breakfast though, could be better quality too. Plus, there could more more frequent cleaning routine, not the rooms, just the bathrooms and communal areas.

    A great option for single travelers and a highlight of the hostel experience! The atmosphere is very open and welcoming and the staff worked hard to help out. I had to let them know that there were no linens in the room when I checked in, and the staff at the reception stepped in to check on the situation and got it sorted out. The dorm style is very efficient and there's a good amount of space for your belongings. Some walls were scuffed which made it look 'dirty', but the rooms were clean.

    Great location for bus connections and do-able walking distance to city centre. The kitchens were a let down with lack of space and VERY untidy. A lack of cleaning equipment and replacement rubbish bags made it difficult for guests to keep it in order.

    It was a pleasant and comfortable place to stay. Convenient with free laundromat, shared kitchen with free food and items left by other travelers, and easy pickup and drop off for organized tours.

    The staff is nice, the price is cheap, it feels good to be in the cafe in the morning with the other travellers. The beds are comfortable. But the sanitary facilities are a bit dirty and frequently run out of paper towels and toilet paper. It’s definitely a good choice if you go for a cheap accommodation anyhow

    Unfortunately really dirty kitchen and bathrooms. My dorm’s ensuite shower was really gross. “Cleaning the bathroom” consisted of changing the garbage and that’s it. We had to ask 3 times for more toilet paper. Poorly stocked and dirty kitchen, only one coffee cup that soon disappeared. Would expect a bit more for the price.
