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. The Laugardalur area is the ancient geothermal hotspot of the city. A hidden geothermal stream runs under the street outside our house.

We are in one of the most privileged and nicest areas of the city, near to some of the finest landmarks and attractions of the city such as Laugardalsvollur Stadium, The Icelandic Phallological Museum, National Museum of Iceland and Sólfarið - Sun Voyager, amongst other renowned spots of the city.

Staff weren’t really very helpful. Rooms were very stuffy even when I went in winter. Longer walk from the city however is close to the water.

The check in is horrible and the staff are so rude when you ask about it at the cafe. There are no real staff there at the hostel only the people who work down below and the owners are very slow to respond with you on check in details. Would only recommend 1 night maximum purely because of the cheap price.
