    Great clean place, good location in town within easy walking distances to shopping/dining, super friendly and helpful staff, comfy beds, really nice kitchen. Home away from home with like-minded travelers to talk to. Great experience.

    Location wasn’t bad. You just have to take bus 55 and finding the bus station proved to be a bit difficult. But the hostel was wonderful! The receptionist was so nice, she upgraded my dorm room to a single person room because there were less guests which then allowed me to have a shared bathroom. Security was good room to room wise but with the shared bathroom, the door that went to the shared hallway and bathroom couldn’t be locked from the outside.

    This place is IMMACULATE—EVERYWHERE! Wow! Also, great breakfast—and nice and early! Far from groceries though—luckily I noticed that while looking at GoogleMaps and got off the bus (#55) at the grocery store. Disappointingly, the local bus drivers were neither helpful nor friendly. Clear directions to hostel from bus stop (Keilir). Easy walk. Downloaded Straeto app for local bus system so I knew when to catch bus back to the airport. I think most people arrive by car. Not a “hangout” hostel.

    Friendly and knowledgeable staff, safe place, good price. The hostel is out of the city center, but has free parking. Nice craft beers. The breakfast is overpriced.

    Proximity to the airport was nice. Not close to any activity outside the hostel, so don’t expect much. Breakfast was nice to have included.

    Close to the airport. Taxi costs about $34. Good place to stay if you only need a place to sleep before a morning flight. Front desk are exceptional, especially Karolina. -Jonathan from Canada
