This hostel is a little outside of downtown Reykjavik, but not necessarily out of the way and still very easy to get to. The front desk reception was very helpful with luggage storage, calling cabs, and letting us know some of the better places to eat and drink in the city. They do offer a breakfast everyday, although it's a bit pricey and you're probably better off picking up food at a market and keeping it in the kitchen. We stayed in a four person dorm, which did the trick, although bring your own bedding if you're able or else you'll have to pay for some.
Only downsides were the other loud younger guests staying in the same wing who could be heard running up and down the halls yelling and knocking on doors. Kids these days! Also, they don't have a freezer, which was annoying as I just wanted some ice in my drink. When I asked someone in the main kitchen if they had any, I was advised to "wait until Winter."
