Fantastic stay and super clean hostel
Very kind and warm welcome from the staff and also show us around after our late check in. Very clean and organized hostel with shared shower and kitchen facilities. Most importantly you have a huge window toward the mountain view

Pravin, us1 night family trip
Good 6.0
Ok place to stay
This place is just ok. After sleeping in our car for 8 nights and showering at camp sites we decided to splurge on an actual bed under a roof. I think I would have preferred the car and campsites. The floors were dirty, the walls are super thin as I was kept up all night by a loud person snoring on the other side of the wall and the showers were some of the worst I had experienced in Iceland. Wifi was only available in the common areas not in bedrooms.Additionally when we arrived it was after check-in hours and they listed the wrong room number for us to go to so we sorta just had to find an empty room to crash in assuming we were the last to arrive.
