Capital Inn is a really good value for Reykjavik.
I stayed in a four bed dorm and in a private room and both were clean and spacious, the private room being quite large and quiet.
The basement area where the dorms are can be a bit noisy when there are several people chatting in the kitchen/dinning area and if other guests let the room doors slam shut but other than that, even the dorms are a great value.
Capital Inn is a bit of a distance from Reykjavik centrum but there are four busses that stop nearby, one just up the hill (#18), and three others that stop near Kringlan (the mall). Also at the nearby mall you have many food choices, a market to by groceries, a bank to exchange currency, and several specialty shops including an alcohol shop !
You can also take a nice walk (about 30 min) to and from centrum and enjoy the scenery along the way. Nothing wrong with a little excersize on your vacation right ?
I actually like that Capital Inn is out of the city as downtown Reykjavik nightlife can probably get loud in the late evening.
Overall, Capital Inn is really an ideal place to stay in Reykjavik if you want a little less commotion than being in the city centrum.
Also to note that Capital Inn has a full service kitchen where the cook will prepare you a meal from their menu. Breakfast is included in the cost of private rooms and they have a cooler stocked with sandwiches, Skyr, and cold drinks.
If you don't know what Skyr is, book a trip to Iceland and find out !
And book your stay at the Capital Inn. I'll be back for sure
