With a good location next to the Hlemmur bus station, and it's own bar downstairs, Hlemmur Square is a great place for shared accommodation. The dorm I stayed in (12 bed mixed) was deserted in April, but blackout curtains were in place to shield from the summer sun, and there were chairs, a table, and a sink in the room. The bar downstairs seemed very popular with locals, particularly during happy hour (4-8pm, half price draught beer) and there was a huge beer selection - standard prices were pretty high, but that's Reykjavik for you.
The service was particularly good - when my final day's tour location was changed last minute, the staff helpfully ensured that my luggage was placed on the airport bus, which saved me from an expensive taxi ride back to the city.
