    This place was super cool, and was perfect for a couple of nights. I loved how it was super eco-friendly.

    The staff was friendly and very helpful. The hostel was comfortable and clean. Tour buses and city buses stop right outside the door, and the walk along the bay into town was beautiful (not short, but stunningly beautiful, especially at sunset)! The hostel is a short walk from the largest pool in Reykjavik. I enjoyed getting to know my roommates from all over the world. Loved my week in Reykjavik at the Reykjavik City Hostel.

    Location, facilities, and everything else were great! The only complaint I have is that it seems they were hosting some kind of event for about 30 high school kids who spent hours running around slamming doors and making noise until late night. Otherwise the stay was great

    When I first got there the room I was put in was very hot, it smelled bad, and there was a dude snoring as loud as possible at 6pm. I was thinking I would not be able to stay there, but I asked for a different room and was moved to a much much better one. The staff was super helpful and the facilities were great. The hostel was also very quiet and peaceful. Very good experience.

    Very nice hostel in a quiet neighbourhood. Buses readily available for any type of travel. Staff was very accommodating with serving me breakfast earlier so that I could get to my bus on time. The building is very spacious and the rooms aren't too bad for space either.

    I really enjoyed my stay here. The location is great and the staff is friendly. A massive group of school children was staying while I was there so the normal vibe was hard to read and was a bit chaotic instead. The only real flaw was the doors. There is no ability to close them softly and as they are ridiculously heavy, the slam that they make is atrociously loud. I would certainly stay here again, though!

    Very Good

    We stayed here two nights total. Once st the beginning of our trip and again our last night. The second night was much better than the first. The first night our room was right next to one of the main doors and it was extremely loud the entire night with people coming in and out. We did not sleep much at all that night. The second night was much better on the other side of the building and not so close to a door. Other than that, everything was fine.

    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.
