We were a family of four staying in a family room. The room and beds were comfortable. It was a bit noisy in hallways, which made it difficult for my children to get to sleep. But this is pretty typical of hostels of any sort, and easily solved with ear plugs. The washrooms were adequate, although one washroom on our floor had ceiling-to-floor picture windows with no coverings. Made showering a bit awkward! Thank goodness there were very few passers-by. The location is excellent for the Golden Circle. We also made day trips to Eyjafjallajokull and the Langjokull glacier. Very easy to travel from this location. Great breakfasts and friendly staff, too.
Note that the price seems very expensive for hostels, but this is Iceland after all.
NB--no laundry facilities, which would make a great addition to the facility.
