    It was nice to have a private space in a hostel. The design was very nice and close to everything in Reykjavik.

    I slept next to a door that was locked, but in the middle of the night a machine started to make a lot of noise...

    Bed was very cool, felt much more private than a normal hostel. I’d definitely stay again!

    The staff were very nice. They took time to give me a tour of the hostel and show me how to use the facilities. Explained everything very clearly to me.

    I enjoyed the stay very much. If I had to pick something it would be that the doors are very loud when you are opening and closing them.
