Bare Bones, Unfriendly Check In
As others have stated this is a school dorm used as a “hotel” in the summer. Good concept, but have low expectations so as not to be disappointed. Literally, 2 beds, 2 beside tables, a desk and tiny bathroom. If you’re planning on sleeping and leaving first thing it will meet your needs. I wouldn’t spend any more time there. The check-in clerk was unfriendly and uninterested. He clearly wanted to be anywhere but at the front desk. Not a great first impression.

Awkward old dorm, expensive for what it is
I found this hotel to be very awkward. From parking far away from reception, to not being able to find our room on the "second floor" (because we went to the second floor, all the way to the end of the hallway, and then had to go up another half a flight of stairs, so it was like it was on the 2.5 floor). It was a converted dorm and felt very much like it. No TV in the room, but there was a common area on the floor. As we had a room for three people, there was a loft area with single beds and a very small winding staircase that blocked the foot of the bed. The room was cramped in part because of the staircase, and the loft situation wasn't ideal for us with a small child. Small bathroom, very few plugs, and the worst sin of all in summer in Iceland.... the curtains did not darken the room at all. So basically it was light in the room all night... also not ideal for traveling with a small child. It was pretty pricey for what it was, but I suppose that's the norm in Iceland.
