Leider war die Dame beim Check out etwas unfreundlich, aber sonst ist das Hostel sehr schön. Große moderne Küche und zwei weitere kleine falls man in der ersten mal kein Löffel findet. Toilette und Dusche getrennt. Toilette hätte etwas sauberer sein können. Parkplatz direkt vor der Haustür. Gerne wieder.

Wonderful hostel. So well arranged & clean with great kitchens & free tea & coffee. Very close to the bus station if you don't have a car. Nökkvi on the front desk was so efficient & helpful in making modifications to our booking. Would highly recommend staying here.

A great place to stay. Our room (with an ensuite) was ideal. Lovely and warm and great for a few nights stay. The kitchen/dining area was a friendly space and kept clean by members. The staff went out of their way enabling us to have an early departure - thank you :)
