Property Description

This lively and modern hostel is located in the downtown residential neighborhood of Hlíðar, the iconic Hallgrímkirkja Church, the super hip restaurants of Hlemmur Mathöll, the glitzy Laugavegur shopping street and all the trappings of the city center are also within a 15 min walk from Bus Hostel.

Conveniently Bus Hostel shares its location with Reykjavik Bus Terminal. That means that all airport transfers from Keflavík International both end and start here, saving you a bunch of time and some money. All transfers to the Blue Lagoon Spa and all the tours from Reykjavík Sightseeing also depart from our location, making Bus Hostel the ideal base camp for all the must do tours and adventures in Iceland.

Finally the SmartBus transportation system stops at the hostel and drives to all the the bus stops in the city 24/7.

The on site Buzz Bar (pun intended) always has 4 local beers on tap, shows the “important” sports events and is a great place to sit down with fellow travelers, meet new people and get local travel advice from our staff. Any travel service offered in Iceland is bookable at the bar and reception.

Lodging is offered in simple mixed and female-only dorms, as well as private rooms. All have free Wi-Fi and lockers; linens is included. All share bathrooms with showers. The hostel has a 24/7 lobby and check in with a communal kitchen and a guest lounge. Bike rentals are available, and parking is free.

Simply put, Bus Hostel is the ideal base camp for exploring Reykjavík and Iceland. View House Rules

    There aren't many thin that are perfect in life....belive me I've done a lot of travelling and seen some terrible conditions. But the bug hostel has everything you need plus it's in the middle of town and the airport. If you ae seriously desperate to get somewhere they have a cab service which will drop you off at the nearest point and it only costs 15 pounds sterling or 20 dollars if you are American or Canadian. I would always use this place as it is so local to town.

    Excellent location for transfers to other sights in the country, but a 10-15 min walk to the city center and other sights in the city. Staff is EXCELLENT and very helpful and 24-hour reception and snacks in the lobby are very convenient. Rooms and bathrooms are spacious and clean! Would definitely stay again!

    There is no privacy bed, there is no partitions between each bed and all 4 bed are connected. The stairs to the upper bed is in the middle of the lower bed, the hostel wasnt clean and you have 4 bathrooms for more than 10 rooms which for total 40 ish person, shoes left in the entrance which is good but leaving a bad smell at the entrance. Kitchen isnt clean as well. The only good thing is the staff, they are helpful and friendly

    I have never been to a hostel that stinks so much like this one! They asked people to leave their shoes downstairs so that the hostel would be clean but this area really horribly stinked and the hostel was never clean! The floors were always dirty and the kitchen was horrible all the time with stains on the floor and all tables! The only good or actually excellent thing was the reception staff; they were so friendly and helpful but once you go upstairs; it is a disaster,

    The bed was super creaky and not that comfortable compared to other hostels I have visited in Iceland. It was not the cleanest but also was not the filthiest was somewhere in between.
