          This was a great place to stay, within walking distance of all shops, restaurants to downtown. Breakfast was okay but cheaper and more convenient than eating out. There is also a kitchen in a separate building if you want to cook your own meals.

          We stayed at the Reykjavik Downtown Hostel our first and last nights in Iceland, and found it friendly, clean, pleasant, and conveniently located. The price was reasonable for Iceland. There is a nice detached kitchen, and coffee and snacks are available in the lounge.
