We stayed at three different places (2 hostels and 1 hotel) during our visit to Reykjavic. The Downtown Hostel was, by far, the best place we stayed. The staff were friendly and helpful, the location perfect, the breakfast and coffee perfect. But mostly the room was incredibly comfortable, clean, and quiet. We loved being within blocks to the marina and to downtown. Overall, I would highly recommend the downtown hostel to anyone and will only book there when we return on our next trip.

I really liked the Downtown Hostel. My only concern is that 8 beds in one room is a little bit too much, with everyone's luggage and whatnot. Also, the room gets very warm with so many people, and a few people (not many and most first timers) can be rather ignorant of "friendly" hostel manners, i.e. not making unnecessary noise at 2:00 a.m., not muting your phone for sound, not being aware of one's puddles in the bathroom, etc.
