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.

    Beds are nice and comfy and things are relatively clean - but this hostel is quiet and not great for meeting other people

    Fabulous

    Just one point of feedback : the marketing of the bus transfer to the airport was too aggressive and also incorrect. Incorrect: I was told that Flybus would cost 3900 but it's only 2900. Aggressive: the person at the front desk was clearly trying to sell my your express transfer bus service, instead of consulting me what is best for me. I eventually took the Straeto bus, clearly Best option given that i had nearly no luggage and already experience with Straeto
