This place is a hostel, not a hotel which should set your expectation. I travelled with my nephew andn mother and we all liked the place. I asked for a quiet room and got a big - and quiet - room with a huge doublebed and a bunkbed. The two bathrooms were on the corridor and shared with two other room - no problem if you know to expect this. There was also a little kitchen. Breakfast was basic but it did the trick, and the wireless internet fast. The only slight minus point was that the walls seem a bit thin so you do hear people coming in and going - obviously not an issue if you are a deep sleeper. This place works best for people who "just" want a clean place to rest and wash during your visit in Iceland close to the city centre.
