Employees where constantly yelling at each other. Fire alarm went off for a good 30 minutes. Might be a hair (a buck or two) cheaper than other hostels in the area but don't think it is worth it. They advertised free laundry, didn't have it at least when I was there. They so have a computer with internet access that you can you on the 2nd floor. But no real lounge or lobby area to chat with others or leave your room to not bother your bunk mates when Skype-ing and such. But if you're just looking for a decent bed for a quick stop over in Reykjavik- a fine option.
