    Superb

    I had a nice 4 day stay at the Laekur hostel. It is a bit further out but there's a busstop on the corner and a supermarket. 5 minutes walk away is the Laugurdalslaug swimming pool! Recommended. Cafe staff were fine. unfortunately i didn't try the food, it seemed reasonable by Icelandic prices! Hostel nice and new , nice hot showers. everything works! Beds were comfortable. Kitchen has everything you need. I'd recommend staying here.

    Fabulous

    The atmosphere at Laekur hostel is amazing, we were greeted by very friendly staff working in the delightful café below that were there to help whenever we needed it. The hostel itself is based about a 25-30 minute walk from the centre of Reykjavik which was ideal and the rooms were clean and well equipped. There is plenty of room to chill out and socialise along with great shower facilities. I would highly recommend Laekur Hostel to anyone traveling to Reykjavik!

    Very Good

    This is not really a social hostel at all, you kind of have to force the interaction to happen. The beds are VERY flimsy and loud, also. Lastly, the hygeine is not great- there was always something on the toilet door handles that I was scared to touch and there is really no one to oversee what the guests are doing. The cafe downstairs is SO charming and the food is delicious, so that’s a plus, and it’s walking distance from an amazing public pool/hot pot

    I'm very disappointing with my experience because it wasn't nice my stay in the Hotel Firstly the people was eating in the commun area outside of the rooms and you can feel the food smell in your room. Secondly I never saw the staff in the Hostel, only I saw the staff in the coffe.
