We discovered the Lava Hostel 5 years ago when we visited Iceland for the first time. This year we came back with our whole family (2 adults, 3 children) and we spent the first and the last days of our journey at the Lava Hostel. The location is perfect: there is a large park around, it is quiet and only a few minutes walk to the bus station and two supermarkets. The rooms are clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Hostel clean and fully equipped with kitchen, laundry and dinning staff, all guests can occupy a common dining space.  Helpful service, of you are late they will leave you a warm welcome message with room directions. Perfect location if you think about reaching Reykjavik
