This hostel is a newly reconstructed, all furnishing and facilities are new, clean and well maintained. We had an impression, that the hostel stuff still need to gain their experience about keeping the hostel (there were mistakes at the checkin), however, they tried to do their best to solve issue. They also did not tell us that there is a free bike rental - what we would definitely use, as the hostel is not directly in the centre (ca. 20 min walk). I only found our from tripadvisor now :-( If we had knew, hostel rating would be Excellent.
Other than this, we enjoy close distance to the bus station, Perlan museum, public beach with thermal water and grocery shops. There is a small kitchen, however, it may become busy in the mornings. Nice surprise was also a free toast that the hostel offers in the morning.
We stayed in several hostels in Iceland, and this one was far the best value in Reykjavik and the whole country,
