Not Bad
The hotel and the location were great!! My only complaint was the fact that they had no early check in. We landed in Keflavík at 9AM and had to sit in the lobby until check in at 2PM. I’ve never been to a hotel where you couldn’t check in early, even for a fee. We had been up for over 24 hours when we’d arrived in Keflavík having left Dallas the night before, so having to wait in the lobby even after explaining our situation to the front desk was irritating. Even after showing her the booking which said “check in 24 hours”, she still didn’t care and that was not very good customer service. Also, the booking says private bathroom, but it wasn’t, you had to share with another room. Kind of a surprise when we got there. All in all, I’d stay here again. The price was good, the location was good, I’ll just make sure to book a later flight into Keflavík LoL.

Good value for Keflavik, a few glitches
The Base Hostel was generally good. Pros: Definitely a good value for Iceland, quite close to the airport, clean and well maintained, shuttle to airport was available for a small fee, bathroom was shared with one other room only (I thought it would be shared with lots of people). Cons: room was tiny, blanket too small for 2 people, breakfast/coffee pretty expensive (compared to room price), and communication wasn’t great. We were trying to find the cheapest way to get there, and it turned out they had a discount deal with a taxi company, but they didn’t tell us. We only found out because another person was going there at the same time (coincidentally). Also, there’s really nothing around the area within walking distance.

Very Good 8.0
The room was very basic, but it was quiet, close to the airport and easy to park. We stayed there on our last night before flying out early in the morning so it wasn’t anything fancy but was a great place with a bed to stay. Shared a bathroom with one other room, but price was cheap. Very basic but I’d stay there again for convenience of proximity to the airport and has airport shuttle too.

5 star service
Stayed o/n as close to airport. Not thrilled at first when we saw our small room but was upgraded at no charge by extremely helpful reception staff with free drinks thrown in too. Room was decent size with fantastic en-suite. Great value.Very impressed by accommodating staff and do not hesitate to recommend.
