I’d give this place 11/10 if I could. Clean, comfortable, quiet, well-stocked kitchen, knowledgeable front desk staff, grocery store 2 minutes away. A lot of bathrooms for the number of guests, you can always find a shower when you want one. Nicest hostel I’ve stayed at in Iceland by far.

Big nice room. Friendly and helpful staff, but not always staff present. No frills hostel that doesn't really have any charm, but has everything you need including a good size kitchen, and everything was very clean. Could do with a few more toilets and showers.
