    Cool runs-itself-hostel

    Totally green, honor-based, clean hostel with a cool history. I never saw anyone at reception, even at check in, but they seemed to have a system down that works! Lovely room, cozy hotel, sauna was a big plus!

    Not bad, but be aware of what you are getting.

    First off, I should state that I had never stayed in a hostel before so I did not know exactly what to expect. If you like hostels, this review isn’t for you. If you aren’t sure, allow me to steer you elsewhere. My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon simply to have access to laundry facilities. We should have gone to a laundromat instead. Firstly because laundry was 1500 ISK and secondly because it was not worth the rest of the cost. The hostel smelled strongly of food and was visibly dirty. There is a “take your shoes off at the door” policy which we found unclean. The room had two sets of curtains and neither did much of anything to block the midnight sun. Upon check out, guests are expected to strip the bed and put the linens and towels in hampers. We were left wondering why staying here cost us as much as it did (surprisingly one of the more expensive stays of our 14-day trip). Overall, if you like hostels then I am sure this one will appeal to you. If you aren’t sure and can find elsewhere to do laundry, I definitely recommend that. If nothing else, we definitively learned that we are not the hostel kind.

    Things to note: no elevator so keep in mind you will be carrying your belongings up a flight of stairs, walls and doors are thin so noise carries, keep toilet seat closed or septic smell leaks into room, take shoes off at front desk.

    Room with en-suite toilet is good. Our only complain was that the room we’ve got is different from that shown in the picture shown on Expedia.

    We stayed in a private room with a private bathroom. The Bedroom and bathroom were both large with super high ceilings. The property is absolutely beautiful with a ton of charm. The staff is super helpful and nice.
