Stayed here for a night while driving through Iceland. Great location and great service, problem is that it’s not really a hostel, it’s just a bed. There’s no kitchen, or even a common area for people to relax, just a restaurant, which can be loud. They don’t even have hot water or anything to heat up noodles or something along those lines. Didn’t use the bathroom or shower while I was there. The bedding was also subpar, really small bedsheets, and the pillow was basically a piece of paper.

No kitchen at all and not even a common place to hang besides the bar which is pretty loud, not the hostel atmosphere I was looking for

Fine place to stay if you just need a bed for the night. Good hot showers. Sauna was out of order - it is unclear if this is a long term situation. A lot of effort is being put into the bar downstairs, but this is at the expense of common spaces and kitchen facilities, which are extremely limited.
