I stayed in a 5 bed female dorm that had the bathroom ensuite and had a great stay. I was slightly worried that since its relatively new there would be kinks needing to get worked out, but quite the opposite. Everything is new and kept very clean and the staff were incredibly helpful and efficient. They'll call tour companies to book excursions for you and have numerous suggestions for eateries, cafes, museums, etc. They clearly know the city and are passionate about it. I suggest skipping the breakfast and trying the many bakeries they can suggest for icelandic pancakes and other goodies, if you're a light eater you'll actually save money this way. Only complaint is a lack of hostel-wide activities. As a solo traveler, that would have helped facilitating meeting people. Wi-fi was fairly good, kitchen adequate for needs (there is also a patio grill for use). Everything very organized and clean. Being in the city center makes nearly everything walkable. Cannot recommend it enough.
