My girlfriend & I stayed here in the dormitory for one night while in transit from Hveravellir to Landmannalaugar in July 2012. It is very close to where the buses drop you off, less than 5 minute walk. There is also a grocery store in close proximity which is a good way to stock up on food since restaurants in Iceland are ridiculously expensive. Save yourself a few bucks and stop there if you’re backpacking and need supplies. The hostel itself was impressive compared to what I am used too. The cleanliness of this place was quite good and it was nicely decorated. I usually don’t care much for aesthetics, but it makes for a nice addition. The bathrooms and showers in particular were shockingly good considering this was a hostel. They have a computer with internet access which you can use for free and wifi if you have your own computer. They have a laundry line outside and a hot tub which is very nice if you have been hiking for several days.
My only real complaint about this place is the price which was a bit expensive for a dormitory. However, this is typical of Iceland and is practically unavoidable in the country. If you are going to stay in a room, be sure to bring your own sleeping bag and towel to avoid additional charges of towels and/or linens. They do have a membership option which can be useful as they have a hostel chain throughout the world. This membership can save you some money if you plan at staying at their hostels over the next year. Read carefully through their website as there is good information there. Emailing them never hurts either if you have further questions, they are well organized. Website: www.hihostels.com.
