  • Not really a hostel feeling. Staff was nice and rooms were clean but that was it.

  • Very fun hostel and in a good location for either casual window shopping of small shops or going out at night to bars. Bathrooms were very clean and plentiful. The staff were very helpful but I gave them a 'Good' because they also run the bar so it can take a few minutes to get their attention. Overall a great place to stay especially on a budget.

  • Common area was at the end of the hall so not really a great place to hang out but the bar downstairs was a great place to meet people.

  • I was really just using the place to store some items on a layover to check out the Reyjkavik nightlife (which is awesome). You get to the hostel by going through a bar that has a good vibe. It's right on the main street and the staff is super friendly. Rooms looked fine, bathroom wasn't the Ritz, but it'll do.

  • I really like the bar area. That's super nice. The bed was a bit hard to sleep in.
