The property was well maintained and clean. The only issue we had was that our room smelled terrible. But we suspect it was the sulphur in the water rather than any fault on the part of the management. The kitchen was extremely well stocked and it was easy for us to find things. They had coffee and hot water all the time which was very helpful.

Clean and comfortable rooms. Location was a little out of town, but suitable if renting a car (some on street parking). Staff at reception were friendly though not forthcoming (until asked) about information RE: facilities/check-out times etc.

We spent just one night but we loved the accommodation. As a family of 3 we booked a private room with a private bathroom and loved the space. The hostel itself is very clean and in a residential neighbourhood. Everyone who was staying was very nice and the communal kitchen was easily accessible to everyone. We walked to the town and that was very doable. The town is quiet but there are a number of things to see in the area. We really enjoyed our stay. We would definitely recommend it.

I loved that everyone was required to take off their shoes at the entrance itself. The communal kitchen was exceptional with multiple cooktops, sinks and work surfaces. The common areas were lively and a great place to meet new friends. Bathrooms were spotless and the rooms were super clean. Best part for me was there is a small hill right outside, near the parking lot. we climbed it and got a great view of 5 glaciers coming down from the Vatnajokull ice cap!
