The receptionist was very nice and gave us information about the upcoming storm, which was super helpful! The common area was very clean and comfortable. Only suggestion: something to hang clothes/towel/soap in the shower room.

Lovely hostel, with great shared areas (kitchen, tv lounge, tables) and friendly,helpful staff. Good for meeting other travellers, and lots to see and do in the area.

Very friendly, great room, great service! The kitchen was very clean and easy to use. Minor things: - breakfast was quite expensive; - when I arrived after 9pm and rang the bell as instructed, the person who answered was in Reykjavik and did not realise we were in Borgarnes (staff apologised in the morning, all okay); - a soap/shampoo dispenser in the shower would be great! - staff should ask if you have a YHA card prior to asking you to pay; - there was no compost bin in the kitchen.

We loved this hostel, we are a couple with one child and we got a room with a double and one single and ensuite. The decor and sheets and beds were wonderful, like sleeping in an Ikea showroom. Had a lovely stroll around the village in the morning as the sun was rising. The settlement centre was fabulous too.
