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. Parking is free.

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

    Good place to stay while in Reykjavik. The locatiion is not bad at all, about a 10 minute to the Hallgrímskirkja. Staff is very friendly and helpful. I stayed here for 6 nights, and security was fine. Upstairs is a kitchen -- a nice feature -- for cooking, as opposed to eating out in the overpriced restaurants. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Iceland.

    Great kitchen and facilities, lots of nice couches and spots to just hang out with other travellers and enjoy the happy hour. Good location, close to the bus terminal and not that far from the city center. I really enjoyed my stay here!

    Friendly hostel staff. Rooms are fine as well. Hostel location is convenient for all the planned tours as this is the main pickup point for tour operators.

    The staff is very helpful and friendly. They made the experience so great at the hostel. Facilities are nice and I constantly see the staff cleaning. Rooms are nice as well. I would recommend bringing a bottom sheet for the bed because they don’t have any. Kitchen is spacious and so are the bathrooms. The location is a little less convenient than other places. My friends and I walked to the city center which is about 20 minutes each way or we would scooter.

    Hostel was close to BSI bus station. Bed had no lights nor a socket to charge tech devices. Security lockers were provided. No towels provided. Hostel staff & hostel aesthetics were super nice. Unfortunately was woken up on one night by rude/drunk person telling me to "STFU" as I was considered to be snoring. People booking dorms need to learn that if you stay in dorms, noise is to be expected. Bring ear plugs to cut noise; bring eye covers to prevent being woken up by light....

    It was good. Not much around for food wise but it’s a close drive to a lot of places. Rooms are secured and cleaned. Bathrooms are good, just really wet when someone showers.

    Really disappointed with this hostel. Some of the staff were rude and the room was dirty. The hostel is a 15 minute walk to the bus station but be aware that you can get the airport bus from a variety of hostels and guest houses around the city.
