I visited this hostel during summer. This was my penultimate stop in Iceland and the third last country on a three/four month tour. It goes down at the rudest staff I've ever met and hence my worst stay in the 20 or so hostels I visited in that time.
We made our way to the hostel, careful to ensure we had provisions. We called ahead to book the hostel and after traveling four hours arrived. The hostel is definitely in The middle of nowhere on a small farm. There is nothing for 50kms we read and it was definitely true. We came in and the staff - a man of 16 years old helped us to our room. We liked the appointments and the size of the bed. He mentioned that of we had any questions we should ask him. We were full to the brim with food as we knew the hostel didn't have food. Though having stayed at so many hostels we knew that as a minimum all hostels have salt and sugar. We found the salt for a nice roast and decided to have a coffee to finish off the meal. We looked everywhere for sugar and couldn't find it. We asked the man if he had sugar to which he said that there wasn't any provided. I said could you ask if you had any cause we would like a coffee and as a minimum it is quite normal that sugar and salt are provided. Well not this place. I said ask your manager to get us some as its too far to drive and we would like two spoons. Well that's when the trouble started. The manager came and berated me for asking. If I provided you sugar then everyone will want some and what if the sugar is stolen. The manager had been to 71 countries and the hostel had been open since 1996. This was the first time she had ever encountered such a situation. I was surprised as this was actually this first time I have been to a hostel without sugar. Apparently I must be a novice traveler. Well I've been to probably 500hostels and hotels so I said no I'm an experienced traveler. I felt very stressed out and concerned. They have your details and they are treating me like im the enemy. Its something you dont want to feel on your holiday.
After the manager left we talked with the young man. He said its logical we don't provide sugar and I quote "you don't deserve sugar". No problem. I can write it up in a review and we won't need to decide who deserves this and who deserves that. The young manager said she would reply to my message on trip advisor telling everyone not to listen to me. Maybe to say that even though there isn't sugar I deserved to be treated with contempt and in a self righteous manner. No problem write your response I'm happy you have so much time to write a review and so little time to give me two spoons of sugar.
I definitely will not recommend this place to anyone. Strongly avoid if you want a stress free holiday.
