This is a Trusted Review. Why?
We've already paid the hostel before our vacations, but during the check-out they said that we have to pay another price (more expensive) because we haven't got a kind of "Hostel membership card". In addition to that, during the booking we checked for a breakfast incuded in the price... then we haven't got the chance to enjoy our breakfast because they said at the reception that we have to pay it separately...
The hostel is very noisy and full of exchange students that are coming in and out all night long, shouting and screaming and laughing drunk so loud!
I DO NOT RECOMEND this hostel and, if I come back to Iceland, I WONT COME BACK to this place.
