Loved the stay and the area!
This hostel is apparently brand new and is spotlessly clean, almost sterile-feeling. That's not a bad thing. Breakfast is typical European: skyr with toppings, hardboiled eggs, lunchmeats/cheese, cereal, and wonderful homemade bread. Wi-fi is strong. We were late arriving so they just left our key for us, no problem. The only thing to make this place perfect would be a common area open 24 hrs. The breakfast room entirely closes after breakfast. Access to someplace to sit (other than our room) and a microwave would help. Our family members don't always sleep at the same times and it's either stare at the ceiling or go sit in the car. ;) The area is lovely and quiet, surrounded by mountains, fog, sheep...quintessential Iceland.

Amazing place and great staff
what an amazing place to stay. Brand new and very friendly staff. The only minus was the lack of tv in the room. But thats not very important. Great breakfast. Overall Excellent choice

We stayed at a private room with a bathroom. The room was very clean, modern and efficient. The staff was very helpful. They also had a wonderful breakfast. They did charge 800 isk for a cup of noodles that should cost 60 isk. There was also an incredible mark-up on beer and other items to purchase at the hotel. (There's NO OTHER grocery or store nearby.)
