Would try for another place with better facilities and more central
Not a great place to meet people. Some staff were friendly, others were not. 20min. walk from city centre which felt like more than I anticipated. The internet kicks you off every few minutes where you have to log back in (so if you're waiting for someone to message you on whatsapp or similar, you have to wait on your phone). The dorms were massive. My first room was mixed gender with 24 beds. It smelled so bad of sweat and stinky feet. Way too many to one room. Also, didn't appreciate that female only rooms were double the price (option of only rooms with 6 beds). So if a female felt uncomfortable in a mixed dorm, they were forced to pay a lot more.

Terrible experience
This was a terrible and disappointing experience. We booked a four person dorm for all four us as we expected to come in late and leave super early the next day (430am). There seemed to be some overbooking issues and the frontdesk just checked us into a 6 persons dorm without telling us about it. When asked. they did not offer any explanation and simply blamed Agoda for the issue. The other people staying in the hostel were very annoyed when we were packing and leaving the next morning which made us felt really bad.

great place to meet other solo/small group travelers
My favorite aspect was the completely separate enclosed individual bathrooms (toilet, shower, and sink). Communal bathrooms are the worst thing about hostels and Bus Hostel got this right. The lounge/bar area is charming and more like an inviting living room where you can easily meet other travelers. The 16-person rooms are actually not bad and they're quite clean. The distance is not really an issue because Reykjavik is so small and safe - you're a 20-minute walk from where most bars are. Only drawback is the kitchen, which is well-stocked, but can get really crowded at peak hours.

Nice place
Everything was good there. it takes around 15 mins to walk to the town centre / church. The staffs at night time were very helpful & nice. But for the daytime, maybe they are busy, they were relatively less helpful. But overall, we have a pleasant stay there!

Big bang for buck
super friendly staff, good location, cheap
I really enjoyed my stay to my surprise even the bathrooms were super clean. only two things that could've been a little better, firstly online it wasn't very clear if have to bring your own bedsheets or not + my bed sheet was kinda dirty but since I brought my own couldn't have cared less ;)
