Hostels are surprisingly quite good in iceland. This place has different location but we ended up next to the bay/ocean or something. Didn't get to take advantage because it was only to sleep. Full common kitchen area to cook and have breakfast on your own.

Very good location, and having a kitchen is very convenient. I wish the kitchen is equipped with oil, butter, etc.

It’s basically a youth hostel with shared bathroom and shower. The bedroom is very small as well as the shower. I actually could not take a shower for that reason. There are no amenities provided to justify the cost of this accommodation

The check-in was fine, but a quirk is the check-in location is not close to the property. After checking in, the receptionist gave us a map with clear driving directions to the property. The property itself is very clean, with a large living room, and you may even have a view of Kirkjufell.

Andrea, us1 night trip
Exceptional 10,0
We arrived early, receptionist was accommodating to let us check in earlier. A comfortable stay. Nearby walking distance has a nice and cosy restaurant. Big kitchen with comfortable sofa and facilities if you intend to do some cooking. We liked the rule of keeping your shoes downstairs; hence, the corridor and rooms were clean and tidy.
