Location
We're located in the heart of Laugardalur Park, next door to the national sport stadiums and Laugardalslaug, Iceland's biggest thermal pool and spa.

    The staff were brilliant. The rooms were clean, only problem, the beds were squeaky, so every turn was obnoxiously loud. The breakfast was overpriced for what it was (own fault for not asking) but other than that, it was a cute place, laundry service, staff were great. Would recommend.

    Great value for money. Only thing I would suggest is they should close both doors around the stairway. One is closed and locked for breakfast but the other is always open. I’m not sure why, as the noise travels through the corridor and into the dorms. Otherwise I found this hostel very clean, the staff were friendly and the room/bed was comfortable. It wasn’t very busy so myself and another girl had the room to ourselves, which was nice!

    We had a car so weren't bothered by being far out of town. Had the room to ourselves which was nice. Showers and bathrooms were clean. Weird setup in the kitchen where you needed a key card to get out but not one to get in? Not the end of the world but weird still. Place was almost empty when we were there. Lots of free food which was sick.

    The hostel is a little outside of the city, but overall, it was a nice hostel. My primary issue was that the staff doesn’t close either of the 2 doors between the common area and the dorms. My 2nd night, people were loud in the common area until nearly 2am. The staff is gone for the night at 10pm. I asked the next night if we could close 1 door and was told not till later (which was 11pm). Why? It is the door between the common area and sleeping. Closing doesn’t inhibit anyone. Disappointed.
