This hostel is nicely located (if a bit of a challenge to find) near a large park and volleyball court, etc. The rooms were clean and the staff were all very friendly. It is quite a long way from the airport (like 40 minutes by car), but, for the price, you can not ask for the moon. There is ample free parking on the premises, a large kitchen, eating and meeting space, outdoor deck and multiple rooms with many sleeping configurations to choose from. Digital key access rooms are nice and secure. On-site laundry was a great bonus. People often leave food behind when they leave, so we were able to scrounge a meal even at two AM when we arrived. Nice large fridge and cupboard space. Kitchen is completely outfitted with pots, pans, utensils and dish ware. There is shopping, cafe and other nice areas in decent walking range of the hostel (like 30 minutes away on foot). Compared with other hotel options in Iceland (ranging from $400 to $1200 per night from what I saw) this was the best we could find for under $200US per evening...
Bath rooms were only on the ground floor and were communal with showers, etc. There are sinks in some rooms (in ours at least), but having to go downstairs to a dorm style shower was a drag. This was my first hostel, so I know there are worse options out there, but it was still lame for my spoiled little self. We were there with two 6 year old boys and it would be nice to have some games, balls, etc. to loan out. Location is a real challenge if you do not rent a car. It was nearly $200US to transfer from the airport by taxi. They wanted $1200US per day to rent a vehicle, so we were kinda stuck. EVERYTHING in Iceland is CRAZY expensive. And that should mean something coming from an Alaskan! We are talking about gas in the $15US per gallon range!!! Neither the bus driver at the airport, nor the taxi driver we ended up hiring knew where the hostel was. It is at the END of a large neighborhood that has numbers which make no sense to the average person. Just keep driving down the MAIN street and look for the large building nearly at the end. Don't turn onto the little side streets with houses, even though the numbers might make you think you should. They are red herrings!... 8-) A note on Iceland Air: we think they have a deal with the local government to force tourists to stay in country for several hours (or a couple days) on layovers. We have no evidence, but we met SEVERAL people who said they were on anywhere from 16 hour to TWO DAY (the length of our layover was 42 hours) layovers! Pretty sneaky way to make people spend money. It cost us nearly $1600US for those 42 hours for six people (2 kids) including the hotel, taxi, tour rental, food and sightseeing)! My morning latte was $8!
very good for a family
there is a good kitchen, the batiment is large
the bed was dirdy, the lamp was broken
good for price. excellent when you are many peoples traveling together
The bathrooms weren't very clean. The room was very small with the sofa serving as one bed
the only trouble was the wifi.
Stuff charged much more than was written in booking.com in euros. We traveled from the capital to north and from north to south and everywhere was same rate for EUR and ISK, but for some reason they took much higher rate and different amount than was shown in booking.com. Price was supposed to be 13910 ISK for 4 person room but hotel took 14900. its not about the money but principle. No wifi in rooms and second floor where the rooms are. Very dirty public rooms. No toilet paper 2 days in shared toilets.
