Great value for Iceland, making a trip to this country a bit more affordable... the staff were great, very helpful. Great location - there is a convenience store opposite and the local bus station is next to the hostel. Bus stop 10 for tour pick ups is right in front. If you can try the smoked lamb here it's a great value meal. There is a kitchen on every floor and is well stocked with cutlery.
It's not really the hostels fault but because so many people stay here and come and go quickly the showers toilets and kitchens need to be cleaned more frequently.
Friendly staff, a nice room, a comfortable bed, a nice big lounge, free coffee, and a safe place inside the house for our bicycles. The perfect place for our stay in Reykjavik.
Location-location! Very well centrally located in downtown Reykavik.
The rooms were simple and clean and the beds were comfy. Also, the people there were great. I purchased the square meal one night which consisted of lamb and potatoes and it was very tasty, and an affordable intro to Icelantic food.
You had to pay for coffee in the mornings which was not great. Also, the kitchen on our floor was closed periodically which proved to be a pain. More social activities would have been nice.
General cleaning is a must. Kitchen was very dirty, overload fridge (only one fridge for so many guests), sticky tables, shelves and counters, stained walls, dirty dishes and pots. Really bad smell in the room. Bed was comfortable, however I was so unlucky to get bunk bed which was at least 2 meters high - going up and down was a bit dangerous. No shelfs, I had to put my bag and belongings on my bed. Showers without lockers were also quite unpleasant.
With a stay at Hlemmur Square, you'll be centrally located in Reykjavik, steps from Laugavegur and 11 minutes by foot from Hallgrimskirkja. Featured amenities include express check-in, express check-out, and dry cleaning/laundry services.
