    I felt like this hostel was amazing! Very friendly staff and super close to bus stop 1. They even offered to help me book a bus ticket back to the airport and answered any questions I had about tours!

    The location is pretty good but still quiet. I stayed 2 nights in a 10 bed dorm. The beds were comfy and the lockers big, but there was no other space for the luggage. The bathroom was big and okay. The kitchen is in another house, but its well equipped. The Staff helped me a lot and was always very, very friendly!

    The rules in Iceland mean you can’t be dropped off outside the hostel so its about a 5/10 min walk from the bus stop you get dropped off at. The room it’s self is modern looking and basic, there is a locker in the room but if you don’t bring a padlock you have to pay a lot for one. The selection for breakfast was fine, a few cereals and bread things. I went to have a bagel one morning and it was mouldy which was very disgusting. You can borrow an adapter and use it in the lobby if you forgot one
