Liked: Great place! The common area is what really caught my attention. It has an old English study type of feel to it and is really relaxed and always has music playing. Plus there's a bar in it.. The entire place was spotless, clean sheets, washrooms ect.

Disliked: Blankets arn't priovided, you had to rent a blanket for 1000 ISK which was kind of upsetting

Liked: Great social area for meeting people, close enough to the centre to make walking easy. Very warm and clean inside

Disliked: Everything in Iceland is expensive, but this place seems like it could definitely drop the price a little. Often very slow dealing with reception

Liked: It was clean, staff were friendly and helpful. Stuff was safe in luggage room until check in. Lost my key card and they made me a new one with no charge. Lots of friendly people. Cool atmosphere.

Disliked: No windows in my dorm so difficult to wake up in the morning but oh well. Having to pay 1000 isk for a blanket but at least it is per stay not per night.

Liked: Very friendly personal and very clean with a nice and social bar und several plugs to charge your stuff. Also 24h service, which is great when you arrive late or have to departure early :)

Disliked: Bit further away of the city center, but calm and what is a 10min walk anyway?
