Good hostel !”
I really enjoyed my stay at Bus Hostel. I was in a 4 bedroom mixed dormitory and I met lovely people there. Marta at the reception was really helpful and all the staff is lovely. You can even buy postcard with a stamp and they will post it for you. The breakfast is good and the kitchen has a good facility. Maybe more mugs and plates as well as knifes will be appreciated. The bathroom are cleaned but the water doesn't go properly to the pipe. Maybe the cleaners have to clean and drain the showers. The only thing was a bit annoying was the plugs in the bedroom. Only one work and you have to use an extension for everyone. Even the cleaner was surprised to see that two of the plugs there didn't work. Otherwise, quite a good location. 18 min to the Commercial Center by walk, 10 min in to Perlan and 15min to the town.

Great hostel for over night stay”
I stayed in the largest 24-bed dormitory. +++ 1) Clean 2) Friendly staff --- 1) No blanket, towel and linen provided (bit surprise to me that blanket not included) 2) I guess this is the fact that people are arriving and leaving at own time, a lot of noises; bring along air plugs and eye cover if wants to have a good sleep

great location, only less than 15 mins walk from bus hostel to downtown. ”
If you are looking for a tour from Bus Travel it could be a bit annoyed when they will pick up at this hostel first plus drop you off the last ( bus travel next to bus hostel, fair enough ). My bus tour reached the city at 9:30 but still have to wait until 10:45 to get drop. Anw, everything is perfect except that they dont provide duvet, you have to pay 1000 krona to rent one. Kitchen is well equipped that really handy to cook by yourself. There has free tea, coffee and sandwish every morning, lovely place that make me enjoy my stays in Iceland to the fullest. Highly recommend this budget hostel

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.

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!
