We had a very pleasant stay at Stsrt Hostel.The place is very clean and the staff is going out of there way to help. There is well equipped kitchen.The breakfast is plentiful and good variety. We would recommend it to our friends, and gladly stay there next time.

Exceptional 10.0
Clean facility, easy check in, helpful staff, place to leave luggage while sightseeing (free). Must take a taxi to the hostel from airport (at least at night) - about 25 euro so try to share it with others to reduce your cost. There are buses you could use to get close to the hostel during the day but don't run often. Single beds with linens including towel. I only saw 2 bathrooms (with shower) on the first floor. Excellent breakfast, clean dining room with staff working to constantly replace foodstuffs - free and worth enjoying.

Very good 8.0
Good space and breakfast but expensive
The hotel is great for those with easy access to KEF. It is great to have breakfast included and with long hours. It is clean and spacious. It is very expensive and nothing is nearby to eat.
