    Was an excellent stay for the night. Rooms and bathrooms were very clean, staff were very friendly and made you feel at home, and the overall vibe was very relaxed. There is a nice common room area, and even though it is a bar it closed around 21:00 and was quiet at night. Beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking supplies. They also offer a breakfast buffet for 1500 ikr if you don't fancy cooking or going out for breakfast.

    Immediately after entering the building, you'll be greeted with a warm cozy interior – and the staff there are super helpful and nice. It has a comfortable living room / breakfast area and a separate lounge where you can read a book (some of the books, you can take with you), catch up with other travelers. I stayed in a dorm and the beds and blankets were super comfortable. For breakfast you have to pay extra, but it's worth it.

    Very helpful hostel staff. My friend forgot his wallet in the hostel. They contacted me and couriered it to the city we were at. Carry salt.

    Very friendly staff, welcoming atmosphere, and great food (the lentils soup was AMAZING). One thing I would have liked to have is a storage locker for valuables.

    We enjoyed our stay at Tehusid Hostel very much. The staff was extremely friendly and the receptionist even let us change the room, because our room was almost full and the other one was just one person. The rooms were clean, also the bathrooms. The kitchen was fully equipped. The thing I like the most was that they sort trash properly and recycle everything. I was surprise to see that not all the hostels/apartments etc. do that. All in all I would go there again. :)

    Good place to stay. Café and bar area are well maintained and offer a breakfast 🧇 Then an evening meal. Vegan food enjoyed. Recommend accommodation, good space. Locks on doors in secure-box for key. I would want to stay at Tehusid ‘TeaHouse’ in Icelandic, again. Family run and cosy interior lighting and music.

    A quirky little place with amazingly comfortable beds and great facilities. Locals seem to use the bar which is cool but when we stayed it was pretty dead. No lockers for storing bags securely. Happy hour was well worth it considering the normal price for a drink in Iceland.
