Loved the location, the communal kitchen and emphasis on recycling. The outdoor tables and chairs were on the floor directly above our room and we could here them dragging across the floor until 12pm and again for breakfast the next morning.

Helpful staff. Location great for city sights. Kitchen has lots of left over things to help make your meal that little bit better. Close to great eats by the old harbour. But please please please get the washing machine fixed. There’s only so much hand washing I can do. Might have been cheaper to ...

The place itself was very nice, but the lady with the blonde hair working at the desk was incredibly rude.

Loved the location. Loved the nice comfy beds & warm clean comforters. Unfortunate that many guests didn't clean up after cooking in the shared areas but not a surprise. Staff had to do more work than seemed fair but were very helpful and pleasant. Think it'd be great to have more staff so they have ...

This hostel was fine. It had everything I needed. The bed was pretty creaky, but it was a hostel bed...so that was expected.
Friendly and helpful staff. Restaurant food was really good. Like the out door deck upstairs. Great having a kitchen to cook food and ability to wash and dry clothes

Between the haunting Viking relics, the soaring church spire of the Hallgrimskirkja and rows of colourful timber homes, you'll also be able to unearth a good mix of low-cost hostels in Reykjavik. In a city that's not overly well known for its budget pursuits, these stripped-down backpacker digs could be just what's needed to leave room in the budget for bathing in the Blue Lagoon and road trips to the roaring Gullfoss Waterfall. But, of course, in true Scandi-chic style, many hostels in Reykjavik are anything but simple. They boast private libraries, futuristic pod beds, rooftop drinking terraces overlooking the sloshing Atlantic Ocean and a whole load of extra activities to get stuck into, from schnapps tasting to morning yoga to BBQ evenings in summer.
Before jetting off to the most northerly capital in the world and its medley of simmering geothermal spas and cutting-edge art museums, it's worth taking some time to consider the various types of hostels in Reykjavik. Design hostels take centre stage in a city that's heavily influenced by Scandinavia. That means shabby-chic art touches in the common lounges and noir sitting areas with antique bookshelves lining the walls. Pod hostels are available for any solo travellers who are keen to crank up their level of privacy – you'll get a bed in a Japanese-style capsule in those. And then there are the classic backpacker options, which have large dorms on the cheap and private doubles for any couples.
One of the real joys of choosing a hostel in Reykjavik is that you can look forward to meeting and mixing with other young and energetic globetrotters. For that, there's often a dedicated common space, a terrace or even a fully-fledged bar – perhaps even with rooftop views over the city. Hostel reception staff can also be a great help when it comes to planning your adventures around Iceland. They're on hand to assist with museum ticket booking, bicycle rental and even those intrepid excursions to the carved rock fjords or ice-capped volcanos of the untamed countryside.
Taking the idea of a Scandinavian concept and design hostel to dizzying heights, the Kex Hostel Reykjavik simply can't be overlooked by lovers of cutting-edge spaces and interiors. Speakeasy-esque lounges and retro dorms mean there's always something of interest to look at. And then there's that enticing location – right in the midst of the city centre, close to the iconic Hallgrimskirkja church and the Old Harbour, with boats bobbing on the swells, not to mention the immersive 871±2 exhibit, which chronicles Viking settlement on the island. The Loft HI Hostel, meanwhile, is a more traditional traveller's affair. Pick from double rooms and shared dormitories, there, before using the free WiFi to start planning your dips in the Blue Lagoon – a famous geothermal spa on the outskirts of town – and jaunts to the amazing Thingvellir National Park – home to ancient parliaments and great tectonic rifts in the Earth's core.
