We really enjoyed our stay here! It was so clean and well organised. Staff were really nice and helpful (except for one guy who really didn't seem like he wanted to be there or help anyone). Our only problems were the fact that there were no sheets on the beds! It should be a basic right of staying in a hostel or hotel, right? You could "rent" them, however. We didn't understand why to rent a bike at the hostel cost more than a room! Help tourists out! We are helping the environment by choosing a bike! I think that the hostel shouldn't try and make such a hefty profit from renting bikes. It's such a pleasant way to see Reykjavik!
I have seen a lot of reviews saying the hostel is far from the city centre( this is where a bike comes in handy). But it's really
NOT that far and it's so easy to get to the city centre from the hostel.The hostel service an cleanliness was fantastic overall, don't get me wrong! And we had a wonderful stay!! Thank you!!!
