Nice little place
The girls working were really nice and helpful. Definitely a good place to stop on a trip to Iceland

Loved the stay and the area!
This hostel is apparently brand new and is spotlessly clean, almost sterile-feeling. That's not a bad thing. Breakfast is typical European: skyr with toppings, hardboiled eggs, lunchmeats/cheese, cereal, and wonderful homemade bread. Wi-fi is strong. We were late arriving so they just left our key for us, no problem. The only thing to make this place perfect would be a common area open 24 hrs. The breakfast room entirely closes after breakfast. Access to someplace to sit (other than our room) and a microwave would help. Our family members don't always sleep at the same times and it's either stare at the ceiling or go sit in the car. ;) The area is lovely and quiet, surrounded by mountains, fog, sheep...quintessential Iceland.

Overall experience is great
The room was nice and cosy. Located far from light pollution and eventually we saw northern light here when we already thought we wouldn't be able to witness due to rainy days.
