  • Loved the atmosphere and decor of the hostel. I was a bit put off by a large student group staying on my floor that was generally quite loud and left the shared kitchen in disarray, but the staff was lovely and I met fellow travellers in my dorm that I got on really well with! The location was great, right on a main shopping street with a discount grocery store five mins away (or you can pay more at the convenience store right across the road), a short walk away from Hallgrimskirkja and the core

  • To rent one towel was ridiculous and $20 deposit and you don’t get $8 back!! Most hostels it’s like $2. Besides that it was an awesome location right next to the bus stop perfect for tour and airport pickups.

  • Loved this place. Super cheap considering where it is and that everything in Reykjavik is expensive. Free brewed coffee all the time is a huge plus. Bus stop right outside for tours. Staff was super helpful, met tons of awesome fellow travelers. Will be staying here again for sure when I travel back to Iceland. Room was kind of hot to sleep in. Other than that it was great.

  • Good hostel in the city. Relatively inexpensive for Iceland. Nice kitchen and lounge are with nice cafe downstairs. The showers on our floor were not very private, just curtains with no lock on the main door. Good place to stay

  • Great hostel with social atmosphere, good amenities, and lovely decor. I met some wonderful people here and never had any issues with cleanliness. Staff were also very helpful, and the downstairs lounge/bar area was really comfortable for hanging out or interacting with other guests.
