We booked a double room with private bathroom, and the quality of the room was comparable or even better than a 3-star hotel. The hostel's communal areas (kitchen, bathrooms, lounge areas) were clean, cosily furnished, and very well-equipped. There was a strong personal touch to the decor, signage and overall experience. Really enjoyed our stay!

One of our best stays in Iceland! Very sweet management and beautiful property. Only downside was the ultra thin walls!

A nice hostel, that provided us with a charming room with private bathroom. The common area facilities were impressive (for example the kitchen). Staff were helpful in providing information. Perhaps the only comment to make was that the bathroom was a bit too basic and simple, but was no big deal, especially when you consider everything else.

100% best hostel I've stayed in yet. Everything was top shape, v clean and in great condition, place is really spacious so even if there are a lot of people u have space to eat & relax (and park). Dorm was really spacious and well equipped, with a sink and wardrobe (only 4 beds in my room!). Extremely welcoming. Benedikta was so nice to move my reservation a night later due to bad weather and was v v kind and hospitable. Just wish I could've stayed longer!
