  • Overall, the hostel is fine. Although I know that Iceland can be costly, for the amount paid per nightly can be better as it does not include breakfast, blanket and towel.

  • First of all, for the price paid per night, this hostel was not worth it. You have to pay for a blanket ($10) and a towel ($5), and breakfast ($8). The breakfast was just a bagel, a muffin and tea/coffee. The staff were young and quite rude and completely unhelpful. They did not act like they wanted to help anyone, in fact they looked like they hated their jobs. The bathrooms were small and the showers were always completely full. In addition, you had to walk 15-25 minutes just to get downtown.

  • Kitchen should have been cleaner but rooms were good. Wifi wasn't that strong but hostel was nice and warm. Some staff were brilliant, others were quite unhelpful and almost rude. Furniture in the lounge area was quite uncomfortable and not clean. Iceland is extortionately expensive so in comparison to other European hostels this hostel was expensive for what it was.

  • The common spaces are very nice and you can get breakfast or just coffee and meet people. The coffee may be one of the best deals in Iceland

  • In general I thought the hostel was fine. That said, while we are all "adults" and shouldn't need a reminder, a code of conduct on respecting your bunk mates sure would be nice - a group spending 2 hours getting packed up starting at 6am while the rest of the room is trying to sleep shouldn't need to be reminded to take their conversation outside. Ah, well...

  • there were no lockers in the room to lock our things in, blankets were an extra $10.00 and the staff wasn't that friendly. rooms were clean as were the bathrooms but the kitchen could have been cleaner
