The rooms were clean and warm. The bunk bed was a bit small and creaky. A few of the people at the hostel were very noisy, staying up till midnight and 2 am and the staff didn't stop them. The upstairs mixed bathrooms and showers were clean, but the downstairs womens' ones were pretty bad--plugged up with hair and full of dirty footprints. It seemed they only cleaned about once a week. Staff were helpful and friendly. shuttle and tour companies.

Muy buen lugar para quedarse en Islandia. La relación precio-servicio es buena y te ofrecen cocina, algo muy útil dado los altos precios del país. Lo único bajo sería la limpieza de la cocina (que en realidad es por parte de los otros huéspedes, pues cada uno debe limpiar lo que hacer) y el cuarto (aunque era cuarto privado). Aparte de eso, el staff fue muy servicial dándonos toda la información que necesitábamos y la ubicación es muy buena y reconocida por todos los servicios de tours.

In dem 6er Frauen-Zimmer hatten nur 2 Betten separates Licht. Es gibt keine abschließbaren Schränke und die Abstellflächen pro Bett sind recht klein. Der Koffer kann nicht verstaut werden. Dank des recht großen Zimmers war dies aber grundsätzlich kein Problem. Im Frauen-Badezimmer im Keller gibt es an den Waschbecken keine Haken. Das wäre jedoch sehr praktisch
