This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Nicely atmosphere but too many people to meet. It took half an hour for walk to the city, it's nice to walk on the coast near hostel.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

A nice place to stay, cheap, though quite a bit of a walk from the city center. However they are on the bus line and with the Visit Rekjavik card, you can take the bus for free, andhae access to the swimming pool (right down the road) also free of charge.
