We visited the city in August and the Hostel was a pleasant surprise! Our pods were very confortable and clean, wifi was also good. The bathrooms were fine to take a quick bath, but a bit smelly. The staff were really helpful!

The location of this hostel is almost in the center of Reykjavik which is really good. The hostel is overall very clean. The beds give you a lot of privacy. Very nice staff. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is traveling to Iceland.

There are parking spaces just outside. I did a quick google search and apparently a pod is two by one metre in size. I found them quite spacious, then again I’m not that tall.
