  • The hostel has a good environment and facilities, but the bathrooms are shared (I read that that's the way Iceland culture is, no private showers, all in the same space)

  • Amazing hostel! So close to everything and what an awesome vibe. The bar area is so cool that even locals stop in for a drink. My only grievance is that the bathrooms were average at best. Could have been a little cleaner as they smelled a bit, but overall still great.

  • Really good hostel, great atmosphere, the bar/restaurant/reception was always buzzing with activity and everyone was very friendly. Ate at the restaurant and the food was excellent and not expensive at all. Great facilities both shower and kitchen wise. One down side was that the dorm got VERY stuffy and humid overnight.
