Property Description

Offering comfortable and classy accommodation and excellent service at an affordable price, Reykjavik Downtown Hostel is one of the most highly recommended HI Hostels in the world.

The Hostel boasts spacious 4 and 10-bed dorms, all with lockers included, family rooms that accommodate up to 5 persons, and double rooms with shared or private facilities.

It is nestled a stone's throw from the lively harbor area, in the heart of downtown Reykjavik, yet in a quiet residential street.

Most of Reykjavik's attractions are only minutes away, including Harpa concert hall and Hallgrimskirkja church. Reykjavik Downtown Hostel has been an Eco certified place to stay since 2010.

Facilities include free WiFi in all rooms and lounges, free computer access, book exchange, a coffee bar and a fully equipped kitchen and lounge. Our mostly organic breakfast buffet is a good start to the day.

The hostel team is happy to give local advice on services and attractions and arrange your tours for free, including the Golden Circle, the Blue Lagoon, horseback riding, whale watching and all kinds of adventure tours. We also arrange car rentals with free pick up, bike rental and all local transport. Great specials and package deals available. We look forward to welcoming you.

Opening hours: The hostel is open 24 hours, all year around. Check-in is any time after 15:00. Check out is before 10:00. Free luggage storage on arrival and departure. Long-term storage available.

    this was my first experience staying at a hostel and being out of the country alone. the staff was so beyond helpful. they answered my million questions with a smile and made me feel very welcomed. I am so thankful this was my first experience. I will plan on staying here again for my next trip.

    Was an awesome spot, as it was the end of our trip we decided to spring for a private room, and the room was amazing. The entire hostel was also very clean, and the staff were great! Highly recommend staying here if your in Iceland. Oh and the full kitchen, despite being technically in a separate building, is still easy to access and set up very well.

    Surprisingly good large & powerful showers. Good sized & secure lockers for storage. Had to make my own bed, but comfy and clean. Very good location, short walk from all of the cities sights. Staff were friendly, but not local. Common area not designed for atmosphere or getting to know others; most people on their phones/laptops. Overall I would recommend. Main improvement for me would have been have had some kind of communal event to bring people together, but then again was great for relaxing
