Bus Hostel Reykjavik, Reykjavik
It's cheap but think twice before you book...
The staffs were nice and friendly when checked-in. However, the facilities inside were horrible listed below: As the hostel located to the main coach stop, there's a lot of noise generated in every early morning from the engine. Peoples smoking outside at mid-night and chatting & laughing brought the noise to the room and woke me up even though I was wearing an ear-plug. Peoples slam the door every time they back and forth to the room in the morning. They even chatting inside the room in the mid-night even though there're peoples sleeping. During my stay, I noticed some of the shower rooms door was broken which in turn longer wait time when fully occupied. Not sure the hostel cleaning schedule but every time I found the bin was full and hairs in the basin. The shower holder was broken and you cannot put it back, low water pressure which you just have basic shower only, quite difficult to wash hair. In the communal area, there's always someone sleeping on the couch which is unfair to others for social chatting as my question is did they booked the hostel and why do they not sleep inside the room? In the kitchen, the microwave control wheel is nearly mal-function as you have to use a little trick and small push in order to adjust the time, not very convenience to use. The dining table always have some left-over & trash from the previous user. Overall my stay was not very pleasant except the location is good.

Bus Hostel, good for price
It appears that the Hostel has been bought buy a tour company. All of the drivers on break lounged around in the common area. It was not a good look for the lobby. They could have easily gone down in the basement where there was a tv room and a kitchen. It was really awesome to be able to use a kitchen and cook. Iceland is very expensive. It would be nice if that had a free shuttle to the grocery store.

Economical. Easy access to major roads
It's a hostel, so it's more suited for younger travelers. Conveniently close to the BSI bus terminal, and is actually a satellite bus terminal in itself. The spacious common area with kick-back furniture, bar, and popular music makes it a favorite for backpackers and the like. It was packed in late May - still the off season.
