This hostel is no frills but near perfect! Fresh linen included (not always the case in Iceland). Very comfortable, non-creaky beds with great pillows. Each bunk has it's own power outlet, light and cubby. Large rooms, each with an ensuit bathroom and great shower. Everything is clean. The staff are friendly, smiley and helpful. The common areas have a cool vibe.
My only complaint would be that the guest kicthen is smaller and less well equiped than you'd expect for the size of the hostel.
I hope they keep up the great standards!
