I had a great two stays at Flokí. It's definitely a bit hostel-y, but the rooms that I stayed in were both comfortable, private, and clean, and the staff were very helpful.
Breakfast in the mornings is fairly basic, but they make pastries from scratch that tend toward deliciousness.
You get access to laundry facilities with the price of your room--this was invaluable after I came back from a five-day backpacking trip. During the trip, I was also able to store my extra bags in a small room at Flokí.
My only complaint is that it felt a bit overpriced, but that complaint applies to many of the amenities in Iceland during the summer.
