I stayed in your hostel with my family and other friends on July 24th. Our room for four people was too small (not more than 8 square meters). The toilet near our room didn't function; in a so big hostel there was only one machine for toast (the second one was broken); we payed 17 Euros for a dryer, but our clothes weren't dryed. So I think to pay 150 Euro for this accomodation is absolutely out of reality, also for icelandic standards.

The room was large and confortable. Anyway, I found it a bit dirty.There are many toilets so you hardly ever have to wait to go to the bathroom.
