  • Great place! Will stay there again! Beds are single beds...No bunk beds! So comfortable! Coffee and tea included in the morning. This hostel is right on the main strip! Do the Golden circle tour and the Blue lagoon!

  • Everything was clean but the bathrooms, I blame this on the guests and not the staff though. While the staff and hostel were nice, the guests when I was there were rude, and partying/vomiting in my dorm. I guess that's what you get for staying at a hostel in a 'party town' though. Overall it was nice, the breakfast was real good, and happy hour beers amazing.

  • I came for two nights before my excursion and stayed there again two nights after. The 1st time I was impressed. The second time not so much. The dormitory i was put in barely had wifi. It smelled bad. But the worse was the women's bathroom. Every stall was dirty. I told reception about it the next day because nothing had been cleaned. That same night it was still dirty and although I told the reception a second time, nothing was cleaned...

  • Great location, right on the main street of Reykjavik. Price is probably the lowest in the city. Staff is friendly and the place is clean. Overall a great place!

  • Door wasn't closing properly on 312 so it could easily be left un-locked. Was given a 120V adapter by an awesome staff member! Best beer I found in Reykjavik, and was kept very clean. Cheaper than some other hostels and came with more features. Also didn't have any problems when I accidentally showed up a day late.

  • Reykjavik can be an expensive place but Hlemmur Square gets you right on the main street at a tiny cost. I stayed in the dorm style room. The lobby/bar area is very nice with comfortable seating and although it isn't free the breakfast buffet was really good. The only issue I had was with the lack of soap in the fourth floor mens bathroom during my stay, which was odd. Some staff were very warm and helpful, others not as much.

  • One of the best hostels I've ever patronized. Everything was very clean and spacious. Beds were pre-made, which is always appreciated. Desk and bar staff were all friendly and professional. The bar in the lobby has an excellent beer selection also.
