I loved everything about this hostel! The kitchen was really great, tidy, clean, and I loved that they recycled everything. The rooms were cozy and clean, looked like new renovations. I don't think I would change much about it.

Wonderful hostel! Would definitely stay again, good prices and a friendly environment. It's right in the heart of the city so great for walking around. The kitchen is tidy and well kept, great recycling! The rooms were cozy and looked newly refurbished.

Budget meal tip

Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur, delicious hotdogs and probably the cheapest food you can find in Reykjavik (including the grocery store)
