The worst hostel I stayed in on my trip around the ring road. Room was basically in basement and had 3 bunk beds crammed in, broken shower head, broken cold water tap fixture on sink, old linen and bed that made a noise on every move. Very run down hostel. Would not recommend a stay here.

We arrived late and it was no problem for the stuff. The rooms and the bathroom was not very clean. The kitchen was untidy and not clean at all. We decided not to use the kitchen for that reason. For one night it was ok. There was extra charge for towels and bed linen.
