Classy breakfast buffet, wide spaces in the dorm rooms, not too cramped, evening shift front desk worker "Gary the Great" is a not a cool friendly dude, but extremely helpful.
Friendly staff,decent location, clean dorms, nice locker for suitcase. Not having bathrooms for both sexes on both sides of the floor. Layout of dorms not great. Bad internet
This review is about the two floors of the hotel which are a hostel, not a hotel. They lend you a tiny (nearly a joke, I guess) lock to put on the small cubby boxes in the room. 1000ISK deposit. The kitchen contains dishwashers. I stayed in a room with 12 or 14 beds. The doors on these rooms are "underdamped", meaning they are designed or adjusted to slam very very loudly if you let them close by themselves. It shakes not just the room, but is even obnoxious during the day if you're in a common kitchen or lounge down/across the hall. The door in my room was slammed AT ALL HOURS of the day except 12h30 -- 03h00 a.m. by the absurdly inconsiderate guests. The problem is that there is no effort by the hostel to tell people how to behave, and for some reason a large cross-section of the sample of young travellers in my room seem entirely oblivious to the surely-obvious effects of their actions on other people. There were no quiet hours announced. No one was told to close doors quietly. I was dumbfounded how people stayed up shouting, drinking, etc inside the dorm room (there are couches) until midnight, even when others were obviously trying to sleep, and the same people when they were on a different schedule, were up at 03h a.m. sharp talking loudly, and slamming the door countless times again. I mentioned to the staff that there was an educational solution (maybe) to this problem, but they didn't seem very interested. In addition to all that, the rooms, which look nothing nice as clean as in the pictures online (of course), have little cubby boxes below the beds where you supposedly can lock your valuables. The locking tabs are a bit of a joke, maybe, but in my room several were actually broken off anyway, so there was no way to lock them. This was my worst hostel experience ever.
laid back fun atmosphere There was nothing I didn't like
Decent price and location Much dirtier in person Kitchen appliances don't work (stoves, ovens, microwaves) so use and need of kitchen is pointless People staying there do not clean their dishes, and cleaning crew doesn't do them either, so there's always a sink full of dirty dishes and no utensils. Advertises soap and shampoo provided yet they give 1 tiny bottle of shampoo that people end up stealing so no soap or shampoo Same with the soap in the bathrooms. No soap. Checked out a day early (almost 30 hours early) yet told that no refund would be given because not given 24 hours notice (?)
Hotellpersonalen var mycket tillmötesgående och serviceminded. Ville verkligen hjälpa till med bra tips och råd. Bra standard för pengarna. Hotellet ligger lite utanför centrum 5-10 minuters promenad - lite långt till restauranger till fots.
Väldig trevlig och vänlig personal
Hotellet var jättebra, rent och fräscht, bra frukost, nära till stan, bra information från receptionen. Kan tänka mig att åka dit igen.
personalens bemötande vid ordnandet av tidigt morgonmål.
Tillgänglighet, bra restaurang, tillmötesgående personal.
Dåligt läge nära stor väg och lite för långt till centrum. Mycket hjälpsam personal, bra frukost, bra rum = totalt sett bra för pengarna. Läget, se ovan.
Personalen var mycket trevlig och hjälpsam! Rummet kändes inte så fräscht.
Rummen var frächa, kostade inte massor med pengar men var ändå mycket bra! Dom gemensamma utrymmena var trivsamma och då de flesta turistbussar har "pick-up" så gör de inget att man bor en bit från centrum!
Enkelt, prisvärt för att vara en storstad, fräscht trots att det var slitet, bra frukost o trevlig personal. Slitet, saknade hiss till tredje våningen, låg lite väl avsides.
Hotellet var under renovering, men det stördes vi inte av. Köket i källaren var perfekt för oss som var så många. Rummen var helt ok, rätt rymliga och sängarna var sköna. Frukosten var god men lite enformig då det var samma varje dag, vi var där en vecka. Kringlan ligger på gångavstånd ca 10minuter. Allt funkade jättebra. Kanske för få toaletter.
Good price. Clean. Free Breakfast. Shuttle to the bust terminal. Tiny beds and bathroom. Not the best location in Reykjavik.
Interior of the hotel was very clean, location was pretty good, and the free WiFi was useful and worked well. Room was much quieter than many hotels, with earplugs in I only heard hallway noises (not the people next door, above, and below, as is common). Breakfast was decent (but plates, bowls, utensils, and cups could be in short supply). Check-in was inconvenient but they do have a nice luggage room and were perfectly willing to hold our bags both day of arrival and day of departure, while we did some sightseeing. It felt a lot like a hostel - difference being the fact they provided sheets and own bathroom. Breakfast was better than what's offered at most hostels I've stayed at but felt very similar otherwise (complete with threatening signs). Our reservation paperwork said check-in was at 2:00--when we arrived, staff was insistent that it was 3:00, and no, no early check-in available. Well before 3:00, the lobby was crowded with people waiting to check-in.
Room looked like it had been take from an Ikea Catalogue - devoid of any decoration. We stayed in the new section which was very clean and the beds firm. The inclusion of a fridge was a nice addition. Iceland it seems is always cold and the heating in the hotel worked very efficiently. WiFi worked well in the rooms. The young men who worked on the front desk were always helpful and friendly in arranging tours and airport buses. Its close location to downtown was nice - the whole area around the hotel is undergoing renovation so there is some noise with possibly more to come when the hotel across the street starts work. Theses inconveniences are possibly why the hotel has such competitive rates. Having stayed in Iceland previously I found the lack of variety in the breakfast difficult after 4 days. Food is incredibly expensive in Iceland so the inclusion of a cold breakfast with juice and coffee is a great added advantage. In the new section small things like a tv that you can view from the bed (as there is only one chair) would have been a great idea instead of mounting it directly to the wall close to the window. An electric kettle would be a nice addition an added item in most English, Scottish and European hotels we stayed in.
Friendly and helpful very nice could not have found a better spot! It did rain a day or two but no trouble otherwise
Kitchen, luggage room, sheets provided, warm water, staff always available, free computer available 3 restrooms/floor, walkable to city center and grocery stores but not within 10 min
Cafe area, easy access to Sadcars No top sheet, blanket charged extra, rooms colder than hall even with 10 people, no laundry
nicely maintained facilities and a good location walking distance to the bus terminal
Very good location, excellent breakfast, very nice room.
The staff was super nice. The room was clean, but the most important thing, for me, was the clean showers and toilets, since they were common. [And they were always clean and available, and with a sense of privacy] the breakfast was really good, and it was pretty close to the center. Not in the heart of town, but in a walking distance, and also close to other sites and facilities, such as the bus terminal for the airport and for day trips]. The free internet access really helped a lot, although sometimes reception was not good. In short it was a really good deal. And I would definitely recommend it to anyone, and will probably come back again. One thing I found somewhat disturbing is that I really didn't know how to contact the staff at some points of the day, especially at night. I had to leave really early in the morning, but couldn't find out how to check out. Just left the keys on the bed and left. Usually this would be a good thing, I guess. Because it gives you a sense of privacy and feeling that you are "at home". You don't feel their presence all the time, but you do know they are there. But thinking about emergencies, check outs and some unexpected things, I would have liked to know how and where to contact the staff.
Friendly, helpful owner, clean and pleasant guesthouse and I had interesting conversations with fellow guests.
The Guest house is built to a boutique hotel standard. The location is a bit far from centre of city.
Very pleasant, helpful staff. Very clean facility. Wonderful breakfasts. A little noisy (busy road outside; sound of guests entering/leaving their rooms).
Basic accommodations, but the room was comfortable, quiet, and dark at night. The breakfast was excellent.
The breakfast was good. No dinner and not so many restaurants nearby.
Bra med gratis parkering .
Vi bodde inte ens på Pavi utan blev flyttade till ett annat som skulle vara bättre. Kylan i rummet. Lyhördheten. Man väcktes konstant av spring i trappor och skrammel. Gäster anlände när som helst och allt hördes in i rummet.
Centralt läge. Ett prisvärt alternativ.
Trevlig kille enkel men bra frukost.
Centralt, fin utemiljö. Dunkuddar som vi är allergiska mot.Vi bokade rum med badrum men vi fick dela badrum i korridoren. Erbjuden kompensation i form av låg bilhyra passade oss inte då vi redan hade hyrbil. Smutsigt badrum t.ex badkarets bottensmuts gick att skrapa i med tumnageln, Solkiga handhandukar.
Att det låg centralt Dett var ostädat i gemensanmma utrymmen.
Centralt hotell, lugnt område. Lagom stort. Prisvärt. Gammalt
Rummet var mycket bra, rent och ganska stort med sköna sängkläder. Personalen i receptionen var trevlig och hjälpsam. Frukosten var ok, men lite i enklaste laget. När vi bodde på Floki (vid 2 tillfällen i juli) var det varmt på rummet, och med öppet fönster var trafiken ganska störande.
Bra och prisvärt hotell med personal som ansträngde sig och var väldigt hjälpsamma till exempel genom att boka utflykter. På morgonen kunde det vara lite kö till toaletter och duschar.
Ok, lite lyhörd, lite dammig, men ok, tack för bra pris via er, inkl frukost
Everything was dirty, including the common kitchen, and the front desk gave te let to our room to another guest who ealked right into our room while we were sleeping! They don't care, so don't stay there. The plae doesn't even have a sign to find it.
Despite having been put in the wrong room at the beginning, they made it okay with free breakfast. We arrived earlier than check-in time and were exhausted and they accommodated us, just in a family style room that we had to move out of the following day. Was not really in the center of town. Wish they had had a map on the wall or a brochure that showed where they were in relationship to downtown Reykjavik.
