The facilities and the location of the student hostel is superb. The University of Iceland facilities and the National Museum is couple of minutes away. The Hostel Manager Valgerður Anna Einarsdóttir and her team is really cooperative. They guided us in many ways including suggestions for restaurants and souvenir shops. The kitchen has all the equipments required for an ideal living even with a family. We were given a well clean furnished room. The common spaces are very spacious and lively. Hope to visit the place again.
