4/5 Good

Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Pretty popular place as both hostel and guest rooms. Large and modern common spaces to hang out and cook. Laundry for $10 total, one machine but it was available. Our private room was quite large. Didn't pay for breakfast, it looked fine, the Kronan down the road had some pastries and sandwiches for cheaper. 2 problems. The window curtains had huge gaps so it was very bright as soon as the sun came up. And horrible shower curtain so the water floods most of the bathroom, standard for Iceland.
