    GREAT stay!

    AMAZING stay! Staff was so nice and friendly, the rooms were clean and fhe space was lovely. I would 100% recommend this place! It wasn't too far away from the town and everything about the area was so mesmerizing. The view from my room was breathtaking as it faced the mountains!

    Well designed and new hostel. Good kitchen and a small bar. It is a ways from anything, so there is no option to go out to a restaurant and there is no taxi service in the area.

    Super clean. Extremely friendly staff. The hotel got hit with a blackout for about an hour due to the snow storm in the area but they managed to bring back power

    New hostel. Loved the decor. It was right next to Reynisfjara (on the same road). About a 10 minute drive to Vik.

    The hostel itself is lovely, though we did stumble upon an unfortunate experience. The hotel staff is very accommodating and pleasant, the locations is pretty easy to find and the rooms are lovely. Although, with all of the towns outside of Reykjavík being pretty remote and isolated - the night after a wind storm we found ourselves without electricity or water. Obviously this outage was present amongst the whole town, and the hotel tried their best to be accommodating - but it’s just something to keep in mind I guess when traveling to small towns in Iceland. Check the weather and bring extra water!

    Cute/chic hostel!

    This place was very nice for a hostel! We stayed in a private room upstairs. The bathrooms and showers are shared but they are individual so you have full privacy. Beds were super comfy too. They have a bar downstairs as well which offers drinks and limited food so that was a nice way to end the night. The location is probably the best part as it is just a short drive down to the beautiful black sand beach. There was plenty of parking at the hostel as well. Overall a very chic and cute place to stay!

    Awesome Hostel

    Quiet dorm room. Loud outside our room, as large tour groups arrived late and a lot of families with children booked dorm rooms. Showers and bathrooms were individual rooms that were quite spacious and very clean.
