    I had a great experience here, even though the storm. I think if you add some curtains to the beds as I have seen in other hostels, this could make even better the experience and sentiment of privacy

    This Hostel was perfect for us during our 3 day stay in Reyjavik. All the staff were super helpful with any concerns or advise during our stay and travel plans. We stayed in a private room with own bathroom. The room was very clean with super comfy beds. Hostel has free parking if you rent a car. There is a bus stop across the street to get into the city center. About a 9 min bus ride and 45 min walk to hostel from city center. During our 7 day trip we stayed at 4 other hi hostels in Iceland.

    I stayed here upon arrival to Reykjavik around 2pm but there was no one at reception until after 3pm. I was doing the ring road the next day so I only stayed one night and went to sleep early. My room had 4 beds each with an outlet and light and four small lockers for personal items. There was a shared bathroom/shower inside the room and sink so it seemed a bit more private. I went around Christmas so there were very few people and very quiet. Overall I enjoyed it.
