Great location but essentially no staff, this is a semi automated electronic hotel basically. Very happy with the price and internet access, slightly less happy with the cleanliness and the room quality. Not a huge deal but basically non-commercial grade IKEA beds that squeek a lot and no outlets in my dorm. The listing said in room bath/toilet but their was only a sink. Luggage storage is weak but okay, hostel is plastered with passive aggressive notes about cleaning and does in fact require a decent wash in the near future. Huge plus for the free downtown parking, I would return.

Great hostel with everything we needed ok
Our group of four stayed at this hostel for 5 nights in a private room. Everything was clean and we didn't have any issues. We were emailed the entrance codes a few days ahead of time and they worked smoothly. I was worried about arriving too early to check in, so I emailed them asking about it. They assured me that we would be able to store our luggage if needed, but most likely, our room would be ready before we arrived, and it was. Towels and sheets were provided and everything was clean. There was only one bathroom and shower for our part of the hostel (about five rooms or so), but there was never any wait for them. The location is safe and conveniently close to Hallgrimskirkja. The kitchenette was more of a place to store and reheat snacks and leftover meals rather than for cooking full meals, but that wasn't a problem for us. There weren't laundry facilities, but there was a sign saying we could ask the cleaning lady for laundry services, which was something like 1000ISK for 1-5kg and 2000ISK for 6-10kg. Overall, it was a good place to stay and we would stay here again next time!

It was disappointing that the water smelled and tasted so horrible in a country that prides itself on the quality of its tap water. If not for a rowdy crew of youngsters that stayed near us, it would have been perfect but after one of the young men approached me and my young son to join them in their room, we opted out to get a new hotel rather than stay another night.
