I think part of the greatness of this hoste can be ascribed to the country it's in, but still, this hostel does a very good job. Extremely helpful and friendly staff (really top notch for a hostel) and the rooms are great: I was sleeping in a dorm and every bed has its own electricity plug and lamp, the mattresses are very comfy, there's a sink in every dorm and there's enough opportunity to hang up clothes etc. It's very clean, which also goes for the communal kitchen (which has a DISHWASHER! amazin'). The bar downstairs is really nice as well (try the IPA - outstanding). One thing that could be improved: the windows. they could only open a little bit and sometimes some more fresh air would be nice. But this truly is the only thing I can complain about, so my rating would still be 5 stars.

Great location, great facilities, wonderful staff, and beautiful people. I spent 4 days here in august and had a phenomenal time. The kitchen got a tad dirty every now and then, but nothing that a quick wipe couldn't fix. I highly recommend this establishment!

this is a true 5 star icelandic hotel w/ charm & class. the owner & staff went above & beyond their call of duty to assist us as we checked in from a night flight. the general manager even assisted us w/ luggage for i have severe medical problems. the room was airy, clean, cozy & well appointed!!!! we only stayed 1 night for we were off to the country, but didn't have the same icelandic experience in selfoss. on day of check out the owner actually kindly allowed me to use his personal computer to check my lab corp reports. if that isn't hospitality i don't know what is. all staff members were professional, accommodating, pleasant & genuinely concerned w/ customer satisfaction. finally they have a superb breakfast buffet & outstanding art & furnishings throughout the hotel & rooms as well.

Great place with a nice bar, really central with fantastic staff. The beds and rooms are good as are the showers and toilet facilities. The only issue is you have to go across the hall for your shower but a small price to pay for a friendly and fun place.

The reception staff in Hlemmur Square are excellent. Exceptionally helpful, efficient and pleasant to deal with. There is a very good bus pick up and drop off service for the airport and any of the day excursions. The rooms are very good. The bathroom and shower facilities are good but they need a fix a leak from the ladies shower room. Very importantly I felt completely safe there. It is a very good option for anyone seeking good hostel accommodation in Reykjavik

I stayed here for 2 nights in a 12 bed dorm. It was expensive for what you get but if was a nice spacious room and the beds were comfortable. There are lockable draws in the room (need to provide your own padlock). The bathrooms are ok. There is a communal kitchen which is very well used. The wifi worked well.
