“This hostel is a hidden gem. Don’t let the fact it is 20 minutes by bus from Reykjavik put you off. Hafnarfjordur in itself is quite interesting. The hostel is located 5 minutes walk from two supermarkets and a number of fast food outlets. The hostel is new, modern, tidy and clean. The kitchen facilities are the best I have ever seen in a hostel. They have multiple kitchen appliances and plenty of storage space. Self catering is easy, which is important as Iceland is quite expensive in general. The showers were awesome, the best I have had in weeks. The staff were incredibly friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. I liked the place so much I ended up extending my stay from three nights to five. ABSOLUTELY AWESOME PLACE!!”

“The host sent us detailed and accurate information before our arrival. This included our room information, WiFi password, parking information, security codes and house rules. It was clear a d concise what was also required from us upon checkout. Water was always hot and WiFi was fast. Although this was a dormitory everyone respected privacy and there was no disturbance from other guests. Overall we really enjoyed staying here and would stay next time again!”
