Great place and location. I found the reception hours to be a little weird, making it difficult to pay, but realize that may be a 'winter hours,' thing.

My favorite hostel! Elfa was AMAZING and so incredibly hospitable. We really enjoyed chatting with her about many things, including Iceland life and magical creatures that lurk in the mountains! ^_^ The hostel is beautiful and very well maintained. Loved, loved, loved it. Great price and location!
