Hostel in the school internat. located in Reykijavik, close to the local airport, not so far away from the city centre.
simple rooms, but bathrooms should be cleaner.
very friendly staff, breakfast rather OK

I had a shared facilities single room and found it very clean and well cared for. Quiet area, great location, great price. Included breakfast was pretty good for continental.
Check in and out were easy.
Wifi connection was non-functional, my only complaint.

I stayed here a couple of times while exploring Iceland. The price was reasonable, I paid about $200 canadian for a semi-basement room that included breakfast for 4 nights. The hotel was clean, the beds comfortable and black out curtains were provided (as its still quite bright during the night in the summer). Bathrooms/showers were shared but clean. It was a beautiful 5 minute walk to the city center. If you don't plan on spending too much time in your room other than resting, this place is for you. Good value, good location and clean.

Me and my 13 years old son stayed for 4 nights. We had planed to be on tour every day so we just needed a place to stay for the night and breakfast. its a very simple, small room but with all what you need, a nice place to stay. A smiling young team, always ready to help for bookings or early check in or even early breakfast. The hotel is very well placed, near the main bus station and 10mn walk to the city center through a pleasant villas area and a lake. Even if its near a big road, its very quiet cause there are not that much traffic. If you dont care about the room view, its a very good deal, and the breakfast buffet is... waow, nice for the eyes and very tasty with icelandic cheese, jam, ham, eggs, biscuits, cereals, coffe tea, milk, juice, and home made bread, some you can find hot on the table when you wake up :D If you dont care to share 2 showers and toilets, I hardly recommand it. Very clean, very serious team. It helped having a very pleasant stay in that wonderful country. Thanks- Josette

Room Tip: If you dont look after a luxury hotel, if you gonna be on the road from morning to evening, its a ve...
