I stayed in 5 Flokagata, which was right around the corner from the main house. I stayed in a single bed room with my boyfriend, and we had more than enough space. The room came with a desk & chair, mini fridge, kettle, a full bed, stool, mirror, and in-room sink, plus a closet. Having a sink and mini-fridge in...

Dear gossipchelle, Thank you very much for your really nice comments about your stay. It is great to read your satisfaction ! We have started renovations of all bathrooms in the building, it is why the one on your floor was closed during your stay.

We went 2 times to this hostel. First time, we got a room in another building with a blue roof at the end of the street. Room was clean and quiet, matresses were really confy. We had a kitchen to cook in the basement... I had only good things to say and wanted to give it five stars... The location...

If you're looking for a simple and relatively inexpensive accommodation option in central Reykjavik, this may be your answer. The owners have a few properties around the area so do note that the actual building you stay in may involve a bit of a walk from the reception. We were placed on the top floor of a squat, three-storey building...

If you're a budget traveler, then this is the hostel for you. Of course it has it downsides like anywhere else, and it is quite basic, but if you just need a base for exploring Iceland, Hotel Village ticks all the boxes.

This was the least expensive private room in a hostel I could find, and it was great value for your money considering how pricey Reykjavik is. The room was bright, pretty and clean, so was the bathroom and the little kitchen. The little gardens were also lovely. Staff were friendly.

Hostels have entered a new era - good, clean accommodation with personality and charm. Cheap no longer means basic. This hostel is a throwback to the model.

One large group made breakfast and the...
