“Very good access to the heart of Reykjavik”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

The best character of this hotel is that I could easily access to the centre of Reykjavik where there are alot of interesting place to see, to eat, and to swim. In this hotel, there are kind stuffs giving useful information for walking around Reykjavik, although I stayed in its domitory room alone entire my staying, I even did not feel loneliness at all. If you would like to travel at cheap price in Iceland, I strongly recommend you to chose this hostel as your base camp. In the near future, I will come back to Iceland again in order to see more deep side of this country, and maybe I will stay in this very cozy hotel offering yammy breakfast for all its guest everyday!

I spend my birthday in this hotel. I live here for three days. The room was cleanly and the location was near the city town and bus station. In the morning, the breakfast offer enough food to eat and the stuffs friendly.

We arrived at Floki after a bad experience with a downtown hostel. We had a clean, quiet room and a wonderful breakfast with fresh baked pastries. The rooms are small but you don't go to Iceland to sit in your room. Recommended with two thumbs up!

Hotel Floki is good located! The centre of Reykjavik is not far away. You can go there by feet.
The breakfast includes everything a happy person needs and the rooms are clean and comfortable.
The receptionist helps us to get a bus to the airport and was really helpfull.
I only recommand it!

The Hotel Floki offered me a well priced room and a bigger breakfast than I expected. They allowed me to leave my luggage in advance and organised my travel to the airport. All in all very helpful staff and I met several of them. It's only a mile from the centre of town and it is a pleasant walk. The art gallery across the road is superb and the burger restaurant just opposite is a good place for an economic meal with friendly staff. Many thanks Hotel Floki.
