Lovely place. Room was quiet enough unlike some reviews. The place seemed social but was not even loud.

It was a good place to stay very warm... the windows need a bit of a fixing, there is no lift. Id say biring some toilet roll with you its like sand papper. The food is good as is the price when you eat out it costs a arm and a leg. The location is brilliant we went the whole trip walking to downtown. The buses for your day trips picked us up on time every time. So no taxis required.

Nice budget place to stay

Stayed with my teenage daughter for a short break to Iceland . The accommodation was at an affordable price and offered what we needed . Room was comfortable and although we had to share bathroom facilities they were clean. Breakfast was buffet and plentiful. The restaurant was reasonably priced for Iceland and we could have cooked in the hostel style kitchen downstairs. It was quiet area even though near a main road and we used gray line tours for our trips and airport runs and they picked up and dropped of at the door . Staff very friendly and helpful

Pleasant hostel

Had a good stay, hostel was comfy. The staff were good but one stood out the most a young Dominican woman by the name of Raisely was very chatty and enjoyed a laugh while going out of her way to help me book tours and my transfer back to the airport. She made everything so much easier. Overall a good holiday 😊

Reasonable price (for Iceland!)

Comfortable rooms, good breakfasts, best of all is the communal guest kitchen, meaning you're not at the mercy of Icelandic restaurant prices! We would recommend Capital-inn without hesitation...

Does exactly what it says it will do.

Cons: Separate WC
Location: Easy access to city centre on bus, only 3 stops. Fab coastal walk pass Perlan, and geothermal beach, past internal airport, on to city.
Pre holiday emailed to enquire if hair dryers provided. Got very prompt polite response, to say yes and confirmed dates we were staying. Easy late arrival access. Room spacious with twin beds as requested. Reception staff throughout stay professional, friendly and helpful. Great array of information/tour leaflets available with free city maps. All trips book able at reception.Great chef who took us to his kitchen garden to chose our salad. Great burgers. Buffet breakfast plentiful. Very comfy beds. Regular change of towels. Beautiful walk along coastal path outside front door. Only very minor downside, it would be good to have separate WC as busy am and pm with everyone showering. Plentiful hot water. Overall delighted.

kaikki oli sänkyjä lukuunottamatta hyvin. sänkyt oli kamalat. ohut patja sai lonkat kipeeksi ja pienikin liike niin se natisi ihan kauheesti. herätti kaikki kun käänsi kylkeä.
