Reykjavik was our final destination in Iceland after almost 2-week-long roadtrip. We wanted a chance to relax in comfort and booked a double room with private bathroom, bedsheets and breakfast included.
It was exactly like staying in the hotel - comfortable beds, clean toilet and shower, yet at least 30% cheaper than a budget hotel. However, the room and toilet/shower were bigger than average, the breakfast was good and the location simply excellent - within short walking distance to everything.
The greek guy working at reception was very helpful - he gave us a lot of advices on where to go out for a bite to eat and what to do, and also arranged an airport transfer the last possible moment - actually the minivan has just left the hostel, but he called and asked them to come back for us. Much appreciated!
If I end up staying in Reykjavik again, I will stay there.
