Offering comfortable and classy accommodation and excellent service at an affordable price, Reykjavik Downtown Hostel is one of the most highly recommended HI Hostels in the world.

The Hostel boasts spacious 4 and 10 bed dorms, all with lockers included, family rooms that accommodate up to 5 persons, and double rooms with shared or private facilities.

It is nestled a stones throw from the lively harbor area, in the heart of downtown Reykjavik, yet in a quiet residential street.

Facilities include free WiFi in all rooms and lounges, free computer access, book exchange, a coffee bar and a fully equipped kitchen and lounge. Our mostly organic breakfast buffet is a good start to the day. Free movie nights and music events are hosted in the lobby on a regular basis.

The hostel team is happy to give local advice on services and attractions and arrange your tours for free, including the Golden Circle, the Blue Lagoon, horseback riding, whale watching and all kinds of adventure tours. We also arrange car rentals with free pick up, bike rental and all local transport. Great specials and package deals available. We look forward to welcoming you.

    I absolutely loved staying at Reykjavik Downtown Hostel. My partner and I rented a private double room, which, for the price, was a wonderful value. Clean, comfortable bedding, fantastic location, and nice decor for a hostel. I did a lot of research before booking, and was very, very glad with the choice. I can't speak to the dorms, but the common areas are also very nice. We found it quiet and very comfortable. Oh, and the staff were wonderful.
