Very good 8.0
Good one night stay
Only stayed one night but enjoyed it. Kitchen is great, we had a double room, was a bit small but nothing really to complain about. Could probably do with another bathroom upstairs

Very good 8.0
Overall, very clean and comfortable. But, how I am supposed to know that you don't get towels at a hostel. I am booking through At 11pm I discover we don't have towels. Tell me that when I check in. Very tight room with 5 twin beds.

Staff was amazing, they personally showed you where things were, like the kitchen, the bathrooms, and showers. Wi-Fi in the common areas. The room was nice and clean. Shoes are to be taken off at the door. Most either wear just their socks or use sandals that are for inside use only. It is a normal Icelandic custom and helps keep the hostel clean. The kitchen is nice and large it has two large refrigerators, 4 cooking and washing stations and plenty of dining space. It is situated on route 1 and there are grocery stores near by. I would stay here again.
