It was my third stay in this hostel, it's a really good place to stay.
We loved it! VERY friendly, young staff, nice&cozy room. There are washing-mashines and a kitchen. Reykjavik is only 20 minutes by foot, and the walk is really worth it as you can enjoy the sea& the view on the mountains.Very gay-friendly, as nearly everything in Iceland.
You need an oven in the shared kitchen.
Doors opened and closed by others during the night was very loud. And you could not open a window without having strong noises of the wind through the door- no joke!
The kitchen equipment is (like in every Iceland hostel) poor - nearly no pot or pan has a fitting lid.
But all in all it was good to stay there.
Thank you so much for your improvement suggestions! They are indeed very helpful to us. Joachim, on behalf of City Hostel reception.
The good: Great clean place. Good breakfast. Would recommend. Convenient if you love the pool. Great local restaurant across the street.
The bad: Charging so much for sheets and towels is ridiculous. We had to pay twice for linens since we split our stay into two parts.
