Property Description

Galaxy Pod Hostel is perfectly located in downtown Reykjavik. We offer Space Pods instead of regular bunk beds in shared dormitories. We have a great social lounge and a movie room. We have a self-service kitchen and you can buy sandwiches and drinks from a vending machine. Enjoy our movie room, bar and social lounge while you explore the planet's most alien landscapes! We offer free WiFi and we are wheelchair accessible. There are free parking spaces and we have an elevator in the building.

We are located mid-way between there all the bars are and Laugardalur, and there are about 15 minutes walk both ways. There's a 24/7 convenience store across the street. Laugardalur has a lot to offer especially for families. It has a big gym, swimming pool, an amusement park for kids, a zoo with Icelandic animals, a flower garden, skating range, tennis court etc. In the opposite direction you will find a great variety of restaurants and bars in the downtown.

We have two couples rooms with two king-size bunk beds in each. We also have two 10 person rooms and one 12 person room, which are great for groups. Kids under 12 years old can share a bed with a parent free of charge. We also have a female only room for 6. The Pods are super comfortable, private and loaded with amenities. We are the perfect option for backpackers, couples, families and groups who want more for less! Each pod has a comfortable mattress with a memory foam mattress on top and the bed is made upon your arrival.

    Fabulous

    I liked the pods, they are awesome, so for that reason they get an 8. However, the bathrooms are disgusting and take forever to be cleaned. The walk is a little long to get to anything of interest but not a complete deterrent. It just sucks when it’s raining. The staff wasn’t particularly friendly but helpful when you needed them. The pods are the saving grace because you have free movies.

    I had really high expectations for this hostel. It truly was in a fine location. I didn't mind the walk. What I didn't love, however, was the facility itself. The bathrooms were super smelly, the sinks were constantly clogged, and the shower was scalding hot with no temp control. My pod was also lackluster. The clock didn't work, the lights turned on and off if I accidentally rolled too close to the wall, and the headphone jack hardly worked. I don't actually recommend this hostel.
