    I cannot begin to express just how wonderful this hostel is and how much I recommend it. I had an overnight stay and the accommodation, hospitality and oh! Can’t forget the beds, it was all superb. Here I was thinking I’d be spending the night at the airport and then this magical place exists for people like us who don’t want to stay at the airport. Breakfast is included and there were plenty of options. I look forward to returning someday.

    We loved staying in this hostel! We were staying just one night in Iceland and this location was perfect for us to visit the Blue Lagoon and get back to the airport for an early flight the next morning. We had a private room for our family of three. The room was spotless. The beds were very comfortable and the private bath was convenient. Would definitely stay here if we are fortunate enough to to visit Iceland again!

    I had a 4am flight out of Keflavik, so I booked the Start hotel for the previous evening. It's a 10min taxi ride from the airport (Too long to walk, plus there was a snowstorm). The staff were great- I ended up having a dorm to myself, and they arranged a 3am breakfast and discounted taxi ride to the airport for me! Managed to get a good sleep thanks to the comfy bed, and a no-hassle check in.

    I really enjoyed staying in the hostel. It was very last minute because I booked a hostel a lot further from the airport than I realized. The free breakfast was absolutely perfect to get ready for my early morning hike. I really enjoyed having a whole bathroom and shower to myself for the privacy. The staff was always so friendly, on the phone and in person. The guy at the front desk took the whole time I was getting settled to find me hikes and all of the transportation with times and prices.

    If you need to go to the airport this is a great place to stay. It has everything you need. Taxi to airport costs ISK 3,000 or US $25. I was the only guest due to low season but I can tell this feels more like a hotel than a hostel, which is not a bad thing at all. Facilities are neat and they offer everything. Great breakfast! Nothing wrong with it. Would recommend!
