Property Description

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.

    Completely love this place 😃 I would recommend 10 times, perfect location and the staff was always helpful and great with us. There is a restaurant downstairs that it’s just amazing! If I go back to Reykjavik I would stay here again for sure ❤️🤙🏽

    Great stay, especially for a hostel. Bathrooms and showers were especially clean, as was the room (female only dorm). Kitchen was not as clean, but that's on the other guests. I didn't really use the kitchen so I didn't mind - I only used the microwave once for some leftover soup, but if I had intended to use the kitchen for meals, I would have been a bit grossed out. However, it IS a hostel, and with that in mind, it surpassed expectations! Would stay here again.

    Great location, helpful staff. When we encountered a rude and hostile guest in our first room, the staff was very accommodating and allowed us to switch rooms right away. We had no issues after that. The hostel is in a very convenient location; if you book tours with pickup, they can pick up and drop off right outside the hostel. My only complaint about the facilities is that I would expect a “fully stocked kitchen” to include some cooking oil.

    Hlemmur Square is a central meeting point within Reykjavik, the bus station and surrounding restaurant district provide a fantastic atmosphere to which the hostel is no exception. The facilities are excellent and the location is great for food, transport and city sightseeing (at most a 25 minute walk from the Old Harbour, or 10 minutes from museums etc.) I found my room to be slightly unclean, though this was shared with 11 other occupants, having stayed nearly a week I can recommend this!

    This hostel was pretty good, its above quite a nice artsy bar with a live music area - hence the rooms are a bit noisy but nice if you like free entertainment. The rooms were super spatious, a but fairly basic and the shower and toilet rooms were cubicoe style shared floor facilities which were fairly clean. I was in a 12 bed female dorm and everyone was so friendly we all chatted for a few hours. Which was awesome. Overall for the price great hostel.
