This place needs to get a bit more credit than it’s being given. I stayed for 5 nights in September and got exactly what I expected; a cheap and functional base to eat and sleep between explorations of Iceland.
Cons – The light in the room didn’t work but didn’t matter as light from bathroom covered for both. It was reported and not fixed.
Bedclothes could have been cleaner and room was tidied only once during the week.
TV had 3 channels. All very minor and really not that big a deal.
Nothing else negative.
The pros – The location could not be better. But mostly, it’s cheap! By Iceland standards this is a right bargain.
Also, breakfast is simple but again, free so you can stack up as much as possible in the morning and save some cash.
There’s a bed, the door locks and the toilet flushes, don’t worry about the details when you’re travelling on a budget! Would happily stay here again.
