    Dorm style housing, but had all the basic amenities. We used the oven in the kitchen to bake a pizza and the heated towel rack was nice as was the black out curtain.

    Good place to stay in between Reykjavik and Akureyri if driving the ring road and taking your time.

    Séjour une nuit

    Auberge de jeunesse très propre et convivial. Les chambre sont légèrement mal insonorisés. En effet nous entendions les portes claquer. Sinon pour le reste tout était parfait.

    Es un albergue de juventud que parece de nueva creación: todo está limpio y tiene todos los servicios básicos (cuartos de ducha, cocina, salón compartidos)

    Nice hostel

    There was some very noisy people but thank god they were in the other wing. The place is basically multiple Algeco (outdoors modular units) put together to form a hostel. There was like 4 bathroom located in the other wings There the place for having dinner or breakfast was big , big table and sofa. the kitchen part was a litlle bit small though Iit's pretty new, it was clean and mostly quiet in our room, there was also a sink in our room which is really great.

    Das Hotel ist in einem Wohncontainer untergebracht mit Self Check In, daher kann ich über Service und Personal nichts sagen. Die Zimmer sind in Ordnung, es war vor allem die erste Unterkunft in Island, wo man die Zimmer richtig abdunkeln konnte. Aber die Küche ist für die Anzahl an Zimmern viel zu klein, es gibt nur einen kleinen Kochbereich, wenn mehrere Gäste etwas kochen wollen, kann sich das sehr lange hinziehen. Die Badezimmer waren leider nicht so schön, sehr einfach und machte eher den Eindruck, als wären sie nur provisorisch hergerichtet. Aufenthaltsraum ist dagegen sehr schön. Verbesserungswürdig, aber ok.
