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.

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

    Really great price for a hostel. I was very happy with the room and kitchen facilities. The staff at the desk were also very helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble, no questions or queries an issue. It is a little out of the city but has great parking facilities and the bus stop is right on your doorstep and less than five minutes into the heart of the city. Easy location for tours to pick you up from as well.

    Great staff and a great atmosphere. Made our trip really affordable and added excitement. Would definitely stay again. Only downfall is it is slightly outside of the city centre.

    This Hostel was perfect for us during our 3 day stay in Reyjavik. All the staff were super helpful with any concerns or advise during our stay and travel plans. We stayed in a private room with own bathroom. The room was very clean with super comfy beds. Hostel has free parking if you rent a car. There is a bus stop across the street to get into the city center. About a 9 min bus ride and 45 min walk to hostel from city center. During our 7 day trip we stayed at 4 other hi hostels in Iceland.

    The hostel wasn’t bad but there were some dealbreakers for me. The kitchen wasn’t clean enough to cook and eat properly ( the towels should be changed more often). The toilet also was not clean enough even for hostel standards. The safety and organization were very good and the rooms were big enough and were kept warm though out the day
