Not only the perfect location helps to build the reputation of downtown hostel, but also the staff, especially the really nice lady in reception, makes contribution to the satisfaction of guests. Kitchen also really good in which the spirit of hostel is explained perfectly. People share foods with each other, people make friends in the kitchen. How fab! I will definitely recommend friends of mine to choose downtown hostel.

I love staying at the Downtown Hostel for many reasons. Convenient location, friendly staff, decent breakfast, washer and dryer, hair dryer for rent, cleanliness, Wi-Fi, quiet area , security system, etc. I will definitely stay here on my third trip to Iceland. The only negative thing would be the lack of elevator in the building, but it's understandable.
