    I wish I could have stayed longer here! We had a private double bedroom and it was great. Very clean, towels and linens included. The bathrooms were very clean as well. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a quick breakfast. Down the hall from our room was a nice common area with some books and a TV, an indoor basketball court, and very friendly staff. If I had been here longer I would have loved to walk around the property more - it's in a beautiful location.

    I had a lovely time at this hostel. I would definitely stay again. The area was beautiful. It’s worth noting that when we booked the hostel it was listed as being in selfoss. it’s actually 20min out of town, which was not a problem for us, but may cause issues for someone who wants to stay in selfoss.

    The staff is incredibly kind and helpful. It was a school before being an hostel so it’s well think and big. Lot’s of space in the bathrooms. Kitchen is large and everything is clean.

    Good facilities, clean, very friendly receptionist / owner Johannes, beware the downstairs showers are very much communal but there are one or two private ones dotted around

    I enjoyed my stay at the hostel. The rooms are comfortable. It will be good if some of the pots and pans be replaced.

    We stayed here for one night in a twin room, an unexpected surprise was the indoor basketball court leftover from when it was a boarding school. The kitchen could've been cleaner and the walls are very thin (we could hear someone snoring and coughing next door), but otherwise, it was a good little place for the price.
