I booked this last minute after a long day including a cancelled flight and it was exactly what I needed.. The Fly Bus Shuttle dropped me off just a block away on a busy Friday night. Check in was quick, no elevator, and charged additional for a duvet but you can bring your own. I was in a co-ed dorm with 4 bunk beds. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. The bathrooms left a bit to be desired, one didn't have a lock on the door, and no place to store your belongings or clothes as you showered.
It is located right in the heart of Reykjavik, lots of nightlife, clubs, restaurants, etc with in walking distance, and only a 10 min walk to get the famous hot dogs! If you are a light sleeper I recommend asking for ear plugs at the front desk, or booking on a quieter street. The bass from a club was bumping until 4:00 am.
