- “ Had a great stay at Reykjavik Backpackers which provides the perfect base to explore the city and Iceland. We parked our car for free just up the road in the church car park and there are lots of good places to eat and drink on the doorstep of the hostel (including an independent bar and restaurant in the hostel building). The only things i'd fault were the wifi signal which doesn't reach the rooms and the bathrooms get a bit dirty due to their design but they are cleaned every day. ”

- “ Our room was OK despite of the poor furniture. The kitchen is in an other building, on the 4th floor. It was terrible disgusting, undemanding with left unwashed pots. Garbage on the floor, etc. We weren't as brave as to use it. ”
