Property Information:

Hlemmur Square combines luxury hostel and upscale hotel accommodations under one roof. Named for the central meeting spot that once served as a watering hole for travelers and their horses, Hlemmur Square is quickly becoming an extension of the city’s downtown neighborhood.

Located on the 3rd and 4th floors, the hostel rooms offer an upscale dormitory style accommodation. The beds are custom made to be absolutely noise free and feature the colors of Reykjavík with their colorful corrugated iron underside. The spacious rooms offer ample space with seating areas, large lockers for every guest and black out curtains to help ensure your good night sleep during Iceland’s famous midnight sun. The beds are made up with quality linens, bed sheets, duvets and pillows. We do not accept sleeping bags. Hostel guests have access to all the facilities such as food service, bar with a happy hour and lounges. Two guest-kitchens and an extra lounge on the hostel floor with a playroom provide a place to cook, relax and meet other travelers.

    Great hostel overall - I would recommend it to friends. I gave a poor rating for 'cleanliness' for two reasons: 1.) The girls bathrooms need to be cleaned much more frequently. They were in a perpetual state of disgusting. 2.) The dorm shower curtains (female and I presume male also) should be replaced for glass or plexiglass doors and wall dividers. The shower curtains stick to you while you shower which can be quite constricting, no to mention this issue is also unhygienic.
