Incredible atmosphere at the hostel, the staff was friendly, the environment was such that it was almost impossible to not meet new people, and the hostel had a way of creating a sense of belonging. Truly one of the best hostels I've had the pleasure of staying in. The location is close to downtown, allowing a comfortable walk to clubs...

We booked an economy double room, but got upgraded to a hotel double room, which was much appreciated. The room was a good size, and nicely decorated. And warm. Location is good. At the end of the main shopping street, next to a bus station, and 10 mins walk to the centre of the town. Hotel staff were friendly. There...

We booked a total of 3 nights in a girl only dormitory. We checked in end of afternoon and were greeted by a friendly staff, were given keys to our dorm and told to pick whichever bed is unclaimed and free. However, when we reached our first assigned dorm, only one bed is made and kind of clean. My friend...

I came in 27 Dec 2016, having booked for two nights. The place was packed with tired travellers! The room were strewn with personal belongings and the heating made the room stuffy despite there being a snowstorm raging outside and having both windows slightly opened. It wasn't too pleasant and we left after one night to stay in Borgarnes. It's...

I had a very pleasant stay here for my 5 day trip to Reykjavik. As far as hostels go this one was really nice. I stayed in a 12 person female dorm. The rooms were spacious and the beds were clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful whenever we had questions. All in all I would stay...

I stood in the hostel not in the hotel! Seing more hostels in Iceland it's not the best I found! The rooms is really good but the baths can be better! The best it's the position! In the center and in the street of shops and pubs!

My husband and I are in our late 20s and stayed in the hostel mixed dormitory type rooms for the nights of New Years Eve and New Years Day.

Great place :) in the centre so was easy to get to and from all the shops and restaurants. A short walk to harbour and gorgeous views of the mountains. Devitos pizza place is close by which is lovely and reasonable priced.

My two friends and I stayed at the Hlemmur Square hostel for about a week and it was great! The staff is really friendly and helpful and we didn't run into any big issues. Given that it's a hostel, there is some noise at night and could probably be a little cleaner, but for the price it was great. The...

We stayed in the hotel at Hlemmur Square, which is situated in a great location near several restaurants, bars, shops, and sites in downtown Reykjavik. Our room was clean and the bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in while abroad. Our room also had a small balcony with a nice view of the water. The shower...
