Although it is a hostel, I have to say that I was impressed with the cleanness of the rooms and the shared areas. Wi-fi is offered for free and you have the option to prepared your... More

Hostel is very big but has a "home" like feel to it, good location too, lots of maps and tour guide pamphlets, staff also make suggestions for you (with... More

The staff were all very friendly, facilities were good though we didn't spend much time using them. Only slight complaint would be that the shower/bathroom was quite dark. The kitchen was quite large and you could certainly cook something there if you wanted, you're encouraged to share what you cook if you do so. There are restaurants almost next door... More

We arrived quite late but the manager came back to let us in and was welcoming and helpful despite our being later than planned. The room was basic but warm and comfortable, the bathroom opposite was modern and clean with a good shower. The kitchen was well equipped and there was tea & coffee available. There was no pressure to... More

Rooms were comfortable, clean. Shared bathrooms were also very clean. The breakfast was delicious.The kitchen is spacious and well equipped, there is also a washing machine.

Selfoss Hostel provides a nice room, and even though the bathroom/shower was shared, they are quite nice. It was a comfortable place to stay. If you're finishing the Golden Circle and the doing the Ring Road, it's also well-placed (and has free parking). My big disappointment with this hostel was that everything was very expensive, which is not what one... More

I went here with a group of middle school children. The rooms are comfortable and have darkening shades - always a plus when traveling in June! The rooms have sinks in them and there are plenty of spacious showers. We took our meals in the group dining room. There were waffles for breakfast every day along with meats, fruit and... More

This hostel offers something all hostels should! There is a table with the ingredients to make sandwiches, and baggies, to pack your own lunch. This is only available to those that have bought breakfast already. And the waffles at breakfast is a hit with young and old.
