Property Description

Want to experience Iceland's majestic city, coastline and countryside in one visit? Reykjavik City HI Hostel is perfectly located and our team has the best travel tips! We'll take all the hassle out of organizing tours and day trips, from the Northern Lights and the Blue Lagoon to the Golden Circle and glaciers, as well as hiking and biking. There's plenty to entertain you at the hostel, too – our coffee bar, lounge areas, patio and garden make ideal spots to get acquainted with some friendly new faces.

Location
We're located in the heart of Laugardalur Park, next door to the national sport stadiums and Laugardalslaug, Iceland's biggest thermal pool and spa. It's a 30-minute walk to the city centre along the scenic Reykjavik coastline, or 10 minutes by bike or bus. From Keflavík Airport, FlyBus and Airport Express run to a schedule connecting with every flight and will drop you off at the hostel upon request.

Rooms and Dorms
Our mixed or female-only dorms and private double rooms are clean, cosy and stylishly decorated with touches of authentic Nordic décor. Linen is included in your stay, and all of our comfy dorm beds have their own personal reading lights and plugs. Some rooms have shared bathrooms, while others are private – but all of our showers are lovely and hot.

Extras and activities
Start your morning with our breakfast buffet, or stock up at the local supermarket (open 24 hours a day!) and get inventive in our guest kitchen. View House Rules

    Superb

    Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They gave us good recommendations on food and even booked us a shuttle to take us to the airport straight from the hostel. One of our tours was canceled and they found us a new one in no time! Rooms are super big, comfy and the bathrooms are very clean.

    Great hostel! Very clean bathrooms, a little far from the city center but still easily walkable (you just may be tired when you get back) Super helpful staff, would definitely stay there again.

    Clean hostel and the most affordable in Reykjavik. However, it is quite far from the city center— although the walk is nice. Big hostel and not much of an atmosphere

    Being a HI hostel I thought this would be a safe choice. It wasn’t a bad hostel, but there were a lot of things which could have been better. Kitchens are very small and not cleaned often. Beds not very comfortable. Lack of power sockets. Not the best location, about a 40 min walk to city centre or 20 mins by bus. Lots of things were old or broken. Reception isn’t always open and very few staff about. There are nicer hostels in Reykjavík, closer to the city for a similar price.

    Security was not great, luggage storage was accessible for anyone to take or steal. Desk staff was not helpful. Location was kind of far from downtown.
