I and some friends of mine spent two nights there. The toilets are clean and the kitchen is well-equipped. When there were too many ppl in our room that we could not find out beds,they agreed to give is another 4-bed room for compensation. The staff are willing to answer your questions as well.

We stayed here for 5 nights 6th Feb. Value for money was superb, the breakfast was a typical continental breakfast which is served daily between 7-9am.

The rooms are basic and the bathroom facilities are shared however they are rarely busy. Rooms are cleaned daily by a lady called Anna who is very friendly.

Wifi is free and has good reception.

The staff in general cannot do enough to help you and are very pleasant. The hotel itself is around a 30 min walk from the main town however there is a shopping mall 10 mins walk away.

There is a pool table downstairs.

Bad points - there is a kitchen with full facilities downstairs that you can make use of, however the students that occupy the downstairs quarters are less than friendly - to be blunt, they were all very ignorant despite our best efforts for 5 nights running to strike up a conversation. When using the kitchen we felt as if we were intruding so not impressed at all.

Tips - there is a bus a few minutes up the road that will take you pretty much anywhere, tickets cost 350 Krones each and are valid for 1.5hrs so you can hop on and off buses with them.

The National Museum is closed on a Monday.

The local supermarket called Bonus is the cheapest place to get everything you need.

Taxis are very expensive, avoid if possible.

The Blue Lagoon, you can get a trip directly from the airport and then get taken straight onto your hotel afterwards as a package which works out cheaper.

Room Tip: Pick one at the back of the hotel as the front is near the main road.

I spent the last 2 nights in this hotel, since it was closer to New Years and most hotels are fully booked and costs more. I got a private room with a private bath and it was nice. The bed was comfortable and I slept really well. The room and the bathroom was clean overall.

Location is a bit distance from the center -- it's about 40-50 mins walk. I was visiting in winter, it took me a while to get to downtown with the snow and ice (50 mins) They have free breakfast and wifi. A nice thing to have is elevators. I was at the 3rd floor and it was a hassle dragging my luggage. If you plan not to spend too much time in downtown or have a car, this location would be great. It close to the highway where you can take day trips.

I stayed 3 or 4 nights in July.
Facilities - great. Bathrooms were a little dirty and outdated (a coupe of broken locks etc). But the kitchens were big and had everything you could need including a big walk-in fridge with boxes to store personal food and plenty of table space to sit and eat....although the dorm room kitchens on the ground floor are gloomy!
The big dorm rooms are great value and I slept better in a huge dorm room than in a 4-6 bed. The linen is included and the mattresses and pillows etc seem to have been brand new when I visited - really comfy!
Its about a 30 minute walk into the city centre, so this hostel isn't in the middle of buzzing Reykjavik, its on a beautiful little hill under the Perlan, by a little woodland and a short walk from the free thermal beach. I love the location. I love the price.
Sadly....this hostel is just let down on atmosphere. Somehow, it just doesn't foster travellers chatting and sharing tales....no really good common areas to meet and socialise - just the slightly gloomy kitchen!

Room Tip: If you are in the big dorm rooms....grab a bunk as far from the door as possible....and use the bathrooms on the first/second floors - they're much nicer and cleaner :)

2 weeks in October 2013
There's two sticker "winner 2012 and 2013 certification of excellence" by Trip advisor.
How much did they give you for that ?
The worst stay all over the world, including poor countries.
Not going to tell all the very worst worries I had there.
I least I could let you know that if there is a problem (no internet, noisy people on a 2.AM check-in)
They will be here to listen to you, before to laugh at your face and take a piss on you.
