    Stellar location and accommodating staff. Theres a busy bar downstairs which I liked but some may not. Hotels in Reykjavik are crazy expensive so if you're on a budget stay here. I met some great people here to which was a bonus. Overall good experience!

    Perfect location on Reykjavik's main high street. Staff were friendly and happy to book and advise on further travels in Iceland. Dorms rooms were a little tight but clean and perfectly warm in winter.

    Hi Sophie. I think you may be directing your question the wrong way. We have no family rooms. Only double rooms with shared bathroom and dormitories for either 4, 6 or 8 people.
