    Great centric place! Haukar was great, always available and the service was on point. The only thing I'd recommend is to fix/repair room 301. The shower door was missing, making it difficult to people (especially ladies) to have a shower without thinking someone might come in unnoticed and the room's only light was not working. Aside from the suggestion, the place is great and will definitely stay there, again.

    Some music in the lobby/reception would help with the hospital-like atmosphere!

    Possibly the worst hostel in Reykjavik, granted that's a high bar. There aren't enough bathrooms/showers for the amount of people and as a result are rarely stocked properly. The kitchen isn't so much a kitchen as a bar with a few hot plates, and with there being almost no staff it's constantly filthy. The common area is just a large dining room. Location is pretty close to downtown though and it's cheap

    I don't recommend this place at all. I found the staff to be SO disorganized, unhelpful and rude. I had so many issues with booking, paying and extending my stay. There is no central common space (just a dining area) and it is VERY hard to make friends and meet people. The kitchen is outside of the hostel in a random hut thing too- which is really inconvenient. I stayed here because of cost and I wouldn't recommend it at all. The building is weird and this won't be a memorable experience at all.

    This was the dirtiest hostel I’ve ever stayed at. I am truly disappointed with the quality of this hostel. The bathroom was flooded and the urinal was overflowing with urine. I refused to take a shower there due to the unsanitary conditions.

    The place is always a mess - staff never clean the “kitchen”, the fridges smell of rotten meat. The other “half of the kitchen” is located OUTSIDE the main building. I wouldn’t like to stay here when it’s really cold if you have to walk outside just to cook... the staff were weird/rude. Security - we asked if there was somewhere we could leave bags until check in. Front desk said he will watch them - come back later and there is no one there at all. Free for all bags. Atmosphere - there is none!

    I thought it was absolutely horrible... Especially the staff, instead for taking my payment when I checked in they marched into my room when I was sleeping to get the payment in the middle of the night. It wasn't clean, the outer doors could open without a code. The staff seemed drunk or in other ways influenced. Very bad experience indeed.

    Beware of scammers ! Hostel B47 canceled the booking at the last minute claiming that the reservation had gone through while already overbooked. I was left stranded in Reykjavik having to look for an hostel instead of enjoying my first day there. Being in peak season, I only found an accommodation twice as expensive and had to seriously cut down on my day trips and visits as I didn't have the budget anymore. Despite 3 requests, 4 weeks later, I still din't get my deposit back.
