    Loved the pods!

    I loved the friendly staff. I absolutely loved the sleeping capsules as it provided privacy. It even had its own TV! It’s across the street from a grocery store if you wanted to get food.

    Fun stay

    Easy walk or bus to downtown, grocery across the street to save $ on food and great staff. Recommend it!

    It’s a little cramped and noisy, but that is true of most hostels.

    Reminds me of something out of Star Trek.

    I like the futuristic feel of this hostel. The bed was comfortable with several USB ports to charge your electronics. The facilities were clean and they provide shampoo. Located across the street from Kronan grocery store makes this a perfect option for me since everything is expensive in Iceland. I will definitely stay here again.

    This would be the perfect hostel if the guest that are checking in after 11pm would be quiet. L
