Guardians of the Galaxy Pod :D
Exactly what I needed - pleasant staff and surroundings and a great place for heading into Downtown Reykjavík or heading out into the beautiful countryside. I also loved their scrawl wall. :)

Very good 8.0
Cool experience
Staying in a pod was a unique, fun experience. The hostel was very clean. The staff at the hostel were friendly and helpful. The only downside is that one of the fans in my pod was not working, and the room was so hot already that it made it painfully hot inside the pod at times. Otherwise very good.
