    Fabulous

    The location was excellent and the value for money.

    The staff had moments of being somewhat unhelpful, especially when not telling us that excursions have been cancelled. Though overall it was a good experience.

    Fabulous

    It's a sober hotel but rooms were very clean with a good shower. Location is very good, close to everything but not noisy. Breakfast is good compared to other hotels/hostels in this price category. Overall very good value for your money !

    We were told that breakfast was until 9.00 am. It would be better to serve breakfast till 10.00-10.30.

    Superb

    Great location and really really friendly staff. One of the staff ther Farooq was an gem and just about the most helpful person I've ever met working in a hotel.

    Fabulous

    Great location, helpful staff - booked trips, bus etc, did breakfast early as we had to leave at 5.30am, decent breakfast, clean rooms, nice tap water to drink, rooms much bigger than i expected. Chinese restauarant nearby does reasonable food at decent prices for Reykyavik, and staff are very nice. Also handy little corner shop nearby, where drinks etc are cheaper than the bigger shops in the centre. Small pizza, hotdog, burger place at far end of square near hotel does cheap food and ice cream.

    Great value for money, no real complaints, just be aware that hot water in iceland is a little eggy!

    Good

    Excellent service by the day staff with good advice on restaurants and also being helpful in booking guided tours, restuarants and airport bus.

    The breakfast was very meager with only a few choices.

    Very good

    I arrived in the middle of the night and found someone in my room. The guy at the desked immediately fixed another room, which was really nice.

    There was fungus in the bathroom

    Superb

    Really close to the city center, 5 mins walking distance. Great staff.

    Bathroom was smelling all the time since there was some problem with the pipes which didnt prevent the sewer air to come back inside the room.

  • 6.6
    Good

    It was very convenitently located to main city center, only a 5 minute walk to all bars and restaurants. Ability to book any and all excursions at front desk.

    Small rooms, bit cramped, street was a bit noisy, but not too bad.

  • 6.4
    Good

    Generally, a way how transport has been organized (directly to/from a hotel to bus terminal and further according to our request)

    A tv set in the room not functioning - no tv signals at all (despite asking for repair)

    Exceptional

    It was clean and very comfortable stay. The personel were nice and helped us booking tours and the tours personel picked us up just outside the hotel door. In addition, the hotel is located so central and still you got the feeling that the street was quiet. All in all, very relaxing stay together with amazing tours to view the treasures of Iceland!!! I would love to go back!

    Fabulous

    The location is great. In the centre of Reykjavik, just a couple of streets away from the harbor, makes it very handy. The breakfast was good. Nice place for backpackers. Easy to meet people in the breakfast room.

    The internet connection in the bedroom was a bit slow or unstable.

    Value for money, near to tourist info.

    Very good

    Location was very close to main shopping/tourist area. The room was clean and basic. Breakfast was simple, self service, which did not restrict your portions. The price reflects what you get.

    Information on site indicated they would arrange a airport transport, but when phoned denied they could help. Staff levels of helpfulness and communication differed greatly and as there was only one person on at a time the experience changed each day.The window in my room kept opening of it own accord as it only had half the fittings to keep it in place, but I managed to secure it, the heating was on all the time perhaps this was to compensate for the cold air coming through the window. Breakfast could have done with some labeling, to differ from the poring yogurt and milk etc
