A guesthouse on Booking.com but really it is a hostel. At first they wanted us to pay for linen, while in the reservation it does not state anything on extra linen costs, but in the end they gave us the room included. Otherwise clean and room in a private room, nice to have a kitchen and fridge. Count on 2500... More

We stayed there two nights during our stay in Iceland. It looks very bad from the outside but is not as bad from the inside. There is never anybody at the reception but you can call them for free and everything is organized. We had the family room and it was okay. The bed was squeeky but we slept through... More

Firstly I would advise not to stay in Keflavik as it's not a very nice town but if you do Fit Hostel is good value for money and worth staying in. The exterior doesn't look nice but once inside the rooms are very nice and there is a pleasant sitting room and kitchen area. Definitely recommend if you're staying in... More

So it's hard to find a nice place that's fairly inexpensive in the area. This place is inexpensive, in a great area close to kef airport, free laundry, wifi, parking, cable, etc! So glad I ran into this place! I recommend it to anyone visiting iceland. There's also a car rental place next door! Super cheap cars. All the airport... More

If only to experiment reception by phone ("open the door behind you and take the orange key"), you should definitely start your trip in Iceland by spending a night at Fit Hostel. No kidding, I cannot deny that the price is high with respect to the variable comfort of beds and the absence of the much expected "terrace with hot... More

Helpful, friendly staff, clean, well looked after hostel. Good facilities, wi-fi is fast, desktop pc if needed, TV, hot tub, sofas, dining area. Not ideal location, but that's just Keflavik in general. If you're going to stay in Keflavik this is a cheap, safe and welcoming environment. 15 minute walk from a lovely Viking Museum and baby goats! Very close... More

yeah alright, when you arrive and think you're staying in a shed, perhaps you're going to be surprised. But inside was more than adequate. Everything was very clean and the communal areas are homely, well equipped and spacious. The staff were very helpful. Wifi is fine. Even with the linen cost, it is very cheap! Many complaints here appear to... More

It is right that the house is old, but interior is well equipped and nice. Rooms are clean and wifi works well. Stuff is friendly, providing usefull information. With great location close to Keflavík airport it is great value for given price.
