I loved the new building I was in, and the great self-catering kitchen. The room was very pleasant, clean and comfortable, though it did not have an en-suite, but the shower room was pleasant to use. The staff could not have been more helpful and I was delighted to be taken to the hostel annex (new building), and even more pleased that there was a minibus provided to take us to the airport so very early in the morning (5:00am) after a breakfast set out for us. Thank you for a wonderful night.

Sehr gut ausgestattete Jugendherberge mit prima Frühstück, auch schon um 3:30 Uhr, wenn der Flieger früh geht. Der erste äußere Eindruck ist eher schlicht, aber innen ist die Jugendherberge sehr schön mit sehr guten Betten und sehr guten sanitären Anlagen.

Établissement neuf au top. Idéal après des heures d'avion pour récupérer en sommeil. A choisir, nous aurions du réserver dans cet établissement pour notre retour plutôt que celui du centre ville de Reykjavik.

Très pratique car juste à côté de l'aéroport, ils proposent un service pour nous y amener si besoin. Intérieur de l'hôtel tout neuf et magnifique, cuisine toute équipée avec produits de base pour cuisiner et lave vaisselle. Petit déjeuner très copieux dès 3h30 du matin ce qui est très pratique suivant l'horaire de notre départ en avion . Nous aurions voulu trouver des poubelles séparées pour le tri des déchets mais je suppose que comme c'était tout neuf il fallait encore mettre ça en place...

The bad: they charged us more than HI had confirmed in an email (just by a small bit, but I had to talk them "down" to the small differential). They had no recycling, and we threw away a lot since it was our last night before leaving the country. Only place we didn't remove our shoes inside. Didn't "feel" like a HI hostel. The good: nice room, lovely toilet/shower.
