Wasn't expecting much when we arrived, we had booked it that morning online. It was right on the main road, was clean and comfortable in a simple way, and I was astounded by how incredibly kind and accomodating they were. So friendly. There was a decent breakfast included in the price, free wifi in the lounge downstairs, and was the cheapest place we stayed all week. It had a good feeling, and if it otherwise felt like a college dorm, for a hostel it was fantastic. Better than a lot of the guest houses we stayed in. Perfect for three single guys traveling around Iceland.
