Perfect choice for those who are looking for a stylish and modern hostel. Going into Iceland I was aware of how expensive the entire holiday would be day to day, particularly eating and drinking. So I was pleasantly surprised by the decor and facilities in this hostel, from the welcoming communal area, complemented with a kitchen area for those who want to cook meals themselves, if they choose not to eat out. I was concerned by the showers, but it quickly abated by the quality of several shower rooms, which allows for privacy, different from other hostels I have been too. Another issue I was concerned about before coming to the hostel, would be cleanliness, but I had nothing to worry about as the host cleaned the communal area daily. Even though we stayed in a six-person bedroom, I felt me and my companion had enough privacy, as with each bunk bed faced away from each other. The hostel is situated in Hafnarfjörður, around 20-30 minutes (By car) away from Reykjavik, with plenty of supermarkets, restaurants and shops located around the hostel, but also close enough if you wish to explore the country's capital. One issue to this hostel would be the limited amount of space in the car park, which filled up pretty quickly, so I had to park on the streets close to the hostel. Overall, I would highly recommend this hostel for those wanting a modern hostel, situated not too far away from Reykjavik. …
What a fantastic place! Clean, quiet, spacious, facilities are great! Kitchen big and very well equipped, fridge and freezer to use and coffee machine with the best coffee ever :) Very close to capital and other routes which was convenient. Also plenty of parking space - very handy! Staff amazing! Magda and Magda (!) very lovely and helpful with providing local information and help how to get around. Keep up the great work and we will definitely come back in the summer 🤞🤞🤞 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Bartosz and Kasia
Vibrant Iceland Hostel is a cheap, but still valuable, hostel just right at the gates of Reykjavik (10 minutes driving from the very inner city). The Check-in is perfect and even guests that arrive late in the evening can come in thanks to a code provided by the staff. I found the hostel very clean, the kitchen is well furnished and well organized, the bathrooms (placed both in the first and second floor along with the shower) are really clean as well. Unless is a hostel, guests behave in a good way, that means the hostel is calm even during the night! Wifi connection is perfect and I found communicating with the staff very easy and fast! It's just worth it :)
This is the best hostel in Iceland! I've been travelling and seen a lot of them, this is my favourite by far. The common area made it an awesome place to meet interesting people and the rooms and showers were clean. The walls have fun paintings on them!
Were here with two friends, and we were all extremely happy with our stay! It was clean, organized and had this amazing charm - tha staff was also very welcoming and nice! Best hostel we’ve ever stayed in!!
