The Dutch girl receptionist on arrival + the male night receptionist on departure, were exceptionally friendly. I definitely want to mention this! When we arrived at the room, the bed was already made, which was nice, though there were several hairs on the bed cover. When it was time to go, and we had to remove the covers and the pillow cases (to put them in the basket in the hallway), that's when we found out that the pillows and comforter themselves were not clean. That left a bad impression.
We stayed here before flying home in the morning. The hostel was amazing & if I hadn't know I would have thought I was in a hotel, it was better than many of the budget hotels in the UK. My only word of warning to future guests is that Reykjavik is a party city and there was a fair amount of noise from outside, not much the hostel can do about this and if you're a party animal you probably don't care but if you need to catch an early flight early it might not be best for you.
Absolutely amazing hostel in an amazing location. We have stayed in many hostels in London and hotels around Europe and this hostel is without a doubt the best hostel we've stayed in. Hotel standard. Could not recommend this hostel enough! Thank you so much for an amazing stay! If we ever find ourselves back in Iceland one day, we will without a doubt stay with you guys :)
