    Really liked the place. Everything was clean, there is a shop within one minute of walking and you can park your car in front of the hostel.

    Very clean, and the facilities is enough for us to use. But in the new year holiday the kitchen is a little mess(maybe because no way clean it). The room is not big but cozy. The location is near to the sea, and is a good pick up point for Iceland experience activity.

    It is out there but it is a pretty walk along the sea and there are places to eat around there. The staff was alright and people were friendly at the hostel.

    A good hostel located a bit of a walk from the city. Rooms were large and beds were comfortable. Bathroom facilities were also really good and clean. It was just located a bit of a hike from the city but that’s not too much of a big deal - see more of the city that way I suppose. Would stay here again.

    Was a nice hostel and view on the walk to city was lovely. Only I think they lie about how close it is to the city centre. Definitely longer than they say it is -would rather they be honest up front. Also I was overcharged 3 euros. My deposit wasn’t acknowledged and I had to pay the entire price when I arrived even though I had already partially paid online. Hostel world refuses to acknowledge this so that was also disappointing. Otherwise nice place.

    It’s a very nice hostel. Nicely decorated and super well organized. Very comfortable. Only thing to mention is that the hostel dorm area can be entered easily from the cafe, which is open to the public. So there is a strange overlapping in lax security between the general Public of the cafe and the hostel rooms. Reykjavik definitely feels like a very safe place in general so it’s not as much of an issue. Also, the staff are not very friendly, and not very accessible.

    Quite a pleasant looking hostel with a bar underneath. Nice, clean facilities. Only complaint I had was paying €10 to wash my clothes and then having a member of staff very rudely accuse me of not paying! She didn't apologies once I told her that I had paid and was quite patronising... put a bit of a crimp on my stay.
