Only a few steps away from Laugardalur, the green river valley of the city. Our name Laekur refers to Lækur which is a small river or a stream in Icelandic.

    Superb

    Great place! Great value for the money, especially in Iceland. There's virtually no crime in Iceland, but there is really no security at all at night. I watched a bunch of people who weren't staying at the hostel be let inside. Nothing bad happened, but if you're concerned about safety at all then this might not be the place for you. Otherwise it was brilliant!

    Fabulous

    Nice hostel with very comfortable beds. No need to rent bedsheets etc. It's included. Downstairs is a coffee shop. Slept here for one night only so unsure if this is also the common area. Quite some people were staying here. Has some other small common areas as well. Overall decent value for money. Place looks nice and stylish. Not the closest to the city center but it's still walkable.

    Fabulous

    It’s a bit of a hike from downtown Reykjavik, but definitely doable (even in the rain... trust me). It’s very nice that the flybus from the airport will pick up & drop off right outside. Checking in at the cafe downstairs was easy & painless. Check out was just dropping keys into a Dropbox — great, because we had to catch a bus at 3am. The beds were already made, but it wasn’t clear if they had already been slept in. The magnets they gave guests to mark they beds kept falling off.

    Good

    I’ve traveled a lot and this is the first time I found the hostel rating was way wrong. Two major complaints: 1) the location is a 40min walk from the city centre which sucks when walking back from the bar at night. Not sure why it has an 8 of 10. 2) the staff, except for one girl, was not helpful at all. They couldn’t even recommend a free city walking tour. Not sure why it has an 8.5 of 10. Had an absolute blast in my vacation but only because I was lucky to meet a fun group of people.
