          It was very refreshing to stay in this very clean hostel with wonderful staff and amenities !!! Very happy I found this hostel! One of the best things is that it is located right by the town center so you don't miss any action!

          We did not stay at the hostel but we had burgers and drinks there. We really liked the burger and beer, however, it was a bit too pricey in comparison what you get. Other than the price I liked it and would recommend.

          Nice dinner, cheapest meal we have had in Iceland yet. Nice restaurant to hang out, chat, eat, and have a good time. It's attached to a hostel so a lot of travelers come in and out of this place. Staff was friendly and helpful
