“Comparing to other locations the hotel is a reasonable compromise between what a typical backpacker would need and the price. City hostel near the camping beats this on the price but it's typically fully booked.”
“There was young hip backpacker scene at the hostel restaurant and bar.”
“This place has been getting quite a few negative reviews recently. In my experience, they are not deserved. I stayed for one night, as a stopover, in a 6 bed dorm, and my stay was very adequate; clean, simple, comfortable, basic, and the cheapest you're likely to find in Reykjavik. This is not a 5 star hotel. This is a basic, functional, clean hostel, which will suit the needs of most backpackers for a short stay.”
“What croissants? I just don't think it makes any sense to have no-one in reception and I am afraid the folk who are in charge really don't care. Please light the area where you have to press buttons that you cannot see. It had the attributes of a Youth Hostel 1974 at a greatly inflated price. I am not complaining at all about the room - that was very good indeed and a lot of work went into the decor. Its just the lack on human interaction that makes this cold and impersonal.”
“Amazing youth hostel! The best we visited in Iceland.”
