    Great place, best hostel I’ve ever been. Comfortable pods, lockers, nice kitchen and bathrooms, clean and tidy, good location (close to downtown and supermarkets) and friendly staff. Quiet and great choice for travellers looking for a bit of privacy. I would definitely come back, 100% recommended.

    Reasonable place. RFID access locker for each bed. My only big complaints are that there is no freezer in the kitchen, and the fridge has excessive condensation inside that drips all over and makes most things wet.

    An amazing place to stay! I mostly chose it due to the fact they had parking, but the dorm where we stayed was very nice, we loved the lounge area, and it was only a half hour walk to the harbor (less if you took the bikes they had available). My brother and I had a great time and since it was cheap we were able to do so much more on our vacation!

    The pods are great - just big enough for a sleeping person and even their bags (lockers are provided as well). The mattress pad was thin, but I slept just fine anyway. I appreciated the ventilation and fan options as well as the outlet and USB ports. *Would not recommend for those with mobility issues as pods are either up a ladder, or on the ground. Approx. 1 mile to the center. Scooters and bikes are nearby to rent, and the bus system is good (though you cannot buy ticket on board).

    Staff were very accommodating and emailed me a reminder and check up for when i was to arrive. I got there after 11 and they had a easy system to pick up the key after hours. The pods were awesome and didn't let any light in which is significant in Iceland in the summer.

    This was an amazing hostel and a wonderful place to stay! Very very clean safe and secure! I loved the pod, as it had a nice privacy curtain and even a little tv as well as lots of storage and outlets! The room was nice and big, not a lot of storage outside your cube, but plenty of space to leave a suitcase that won’t get in peoples way! Very secure hostel with code entry to get through various doors after 7:00 pm and in a safe area of town! Very quiet hostel, not a lot of atmosphere but clean!!

    Grocery store right across the street which is convenient. Location is not as walkable as other hostels, but the security of having your own pod is very nice and well worth it. Sound was never an issue, which was my biggest concern. I stayed in a coed room, and never had an issue. Not many people hang out here so it wasn’t as easy to meet people, but I had plenty to do in the area solo. Kitchen doesn’t have a freezer and can get busy, you must purchase towels for use if you don’t bring one.

    The Galaxy Pod hostel was a fun place to stay! I absolutely loved the pod. I thought the bed was comfy and the entire atmosphere was cozy. It is a bit outside of the city center but you can get to the main parts of Reykjavik within 10-15 minutes by foot.

    It was a cool place. About a 30 minute walk to the heart of the city. The only thing I will say is that we paid extra for the 8 person dorm room and they are NOT as pictured. The 24 person dorm room actually has pods, the 8 person one is basically a bunk with a pull down curtain. If you want to stay in a pod, then sign up for the cheaper room if that makes sense.
