    Staff is unbelievably helpful! Seriously the best staff I've experienced at any hostel - they are always willing to answer any questions, give recommendations, and they even help you book tour and transport to the airport. It's a 40min walk or so into city center, which is the only downside. There's a bus close to the hostel though, which comes every half hour or so, so as long as you time things correctly you should get to city center easily.

    Large, busy hostel 20 minute walk from city. Bus stop outside. Favourite of large groups so can be noisy - hard surfaces, thin walls and doors don't help. Efficient staff and cleaning regime. 2 very small, badly laid-out self-catering kitchens with few pans or utensils (I guess they get borrowed/stolen regularly). A good base for a couple of nights.

    This hostel was a good jumping point for my day trips in Iceland (Golden Circle, South Coast, and then just some city exploration). It's not in the best best spot location wise, but still decent. Its right next to a popular swimming pool and a park - if you're a runner, the park behind the hostel is a great place for some exercise. No outlets by the beds, just by the window. Great showers. If it was more full it would have been a more social environment, I'm sure, but it was still fine.

    Coffee should be free. Water should be available to drink at all times. Guest should be allotted at least one towel. Soap should be available.

    Clinical and functional. No complaints. A bit more of a cold institution than friendly buzzing hostel but perfectly good place to sleep and wash! Thankyou
