It’s my first time ever to stay in a hostel type accommodation. I have stayed in luxury hotels from all over and I have to say this place is as basic as it gets. Very comfortable tho. It doesn’t have the best shower or wifi connection but it’s not a deal breaker for me. Location is good. It’s literally around the corner from a bus/pick up stop. It’s on a major street lined up with shops & restaurants/bar. It’s about 25 minutes walk to BSI terminal— bus to Airport, Blue Lagoon and other tour if you don’t have hotel pick up. It’s also where you can get free covid testing ( I had to get it for my flight back to US ) The staff that runs this place is very responsive. Allowed me to check in after checking if my room was ready. I appreciated that very much. After a very long and early arrival, I had the best nap to date! Ty again.

Budget/Basic Hostel
Budget, outdated hostel that needs fresh paint and some basic updates. I had a room with a private bathroom and overall it was clean and provided basic needs (no hand towel though) but was literally between two bathroom and could hear anyone in the hallway/doors opening/toilet flushing. There was some hair in the shower, the main light in the room did not work and the beds were okay. One main reason I booked there was the amenities included "laundry facilities" which led me to believe there was a washer/dryer to do my own laundry but it is only a "laundry service" for $30 a basket where it's sent out and returned in 24 hrs (have a lot of wool/workout items I don't dry so this didn't work for me, no laundry mats in Iceland either). When I mentioned this to the front desk guy he said "No one in the 4 yrs we've owned this hotel has anyone ever thought that". So if you're looking for budget/basic that's easy access to downtown, then this will work for that, just keep your expectations to a minimum.
