One of, if not, the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in - super sociable - I met some great friends and we travelled the island; from volcanoes to glaciers. Amazing staff, super clean kitchen and bathroom facilities - would definitely stay again.
Unimaginable before you experience it

I myself as an Icelander will definitely recommend this dreamy like hostel. But not only that but mostly the great people that make the clock work. Always familiar loving faces of beautiful spirits around. A place I called my home at a turning point in my life, it delivered and produced, thankful Team GPHostel. Sincerely, Fannar Már

Big shout out to Xavier for being the most welcoming host/reception person you will ever meet at a hostel ever! The vibe in the common area is so warm and welcoming and it’s a great mixture of young and older travelers as well. I love sleeping in the pods. The location is great too as it’s walking distance to the center of town but has free parking if you rent a car.
Best place to stay when in Reykjavik

I wanted to stay in a location that was both convienant and quirky. I had researched online about these Pod Hotels being in other countries though never expected to find one in Reykjavik. I traveled solo back in March prior to lockdown and my stay did not disappoint. The excellent greeting by the staff and the service on the bar I could not fault and was made to feel most welcome. They helped and suggested places to visit in the town while also sourced several tour companies that I could use to visit various places across Iceland. I ended up booking two tours, one of the north and Golden Circle and then one to the South visiting the Black sands etc. Value for money is key in a place like this and I am quite fully aware that you can pay a lot to stay in central Reyjavik. However, here the price was reasonable and the facilities suited exactly what I wanted. At the time I had breakfast at the hostel and the Pancakes are indeed as excellent as everyone on here raves about. The Bar had a surprisingly wide and varied selection for such a small place. The lobby was more of a communal area with sofas and a TV with access to video games and VR on request. The VR room was fun though not as excellent as the stunning view across the bay at the mountains on a clear day. I being a photographer mostly found myself staring out at the scenic view while enjoying a beer during their happy hour service times. Traveling alone I was able to meet several other travelers on various nights to which we ended up visiting a Comedy Club and Open Mic night place across in the town. This place being suggested by a very nice woman who had recently moved to Iceland herself. The Pods were an interesting sight though was quite pleased with the separate showers and toilets which offered plenty of room. No doubt if you are not used to Iceland then you will have to get used to the rather interesting smell of sulphur which comes from the hot water. Truth be told I was surprised to find out that a lot of the water comes naturally from the various geothermal pockets across the country. The pods offered a TV with access to YouTube, Netflix and internet connection etc. Single pod size was fine for myself and I was happy with how cosy it was. Couples should easily book the double size pods for much more room. Overall I would visit again, the hotel is a clear stand out to the good few that I have visited elsewhere purely because it's uniqueness and relaxed vibes. 5/5!
