KEX. It's the Icelandic word for 'biscuit' and new social hostel in Reykjavik. What's not to love?

Housed in an old biscuit factory in the heart of Reykjavik, KEX is just steps from all the bars, clubs, and music venues that give this city its legendary reputation. It's also a painless distance from late-night munchies and a mind-boggling array of coffee houses, shops, and tourist attractions.

Of course, you might not even want to venture outside of the hostel with all its features, including a café and bar, lounge area, heated outdoor patio, tourist information desk, laundry room and free Wi-Fi.

In addition to our dormitory rooms we offer three different double rooms.
The Double Plus has one double bed, a private bathroom, linens and towels and a fantastic seaside view.
The Double Standard has one double bed (of the most clever convertible design in case you get tired of being so close to your travel partner), shared bathrooms, linens and towels and - if you are lucky - the same fantastic view.
The Twin Private has two single beds, linens and towels and a better-than-average chance of making your friends back home quite jealous indeed.

Ladies - for your comfort and peace-of-mind, we offer female-only dorms. If you would prefer to reserve a bed in such a dorm, please make sure to do so directly from the reservation window. If none are available, you are welcome to contact us after booking to double-check.

Families - a few of our four-bed dorms are equipped with bunk beds which can be pushed together to form what we like to call a double bunk bed. This has Mom and Dad on the bottom and kids on top. Baby cribs are also available to families traveling with a diaper bag. Please be sure to contact us after booking in order to arrange for this type of room. Space is limited, and family rooms are reserved on a first-come basis.

Children under the age of 3 stay for free and children under 12 pay 50%. The same is true for many of the excursions which can be booked directly from the hostel reception.

Two guest kitchenettes and private laundry facilities are also available. And with a variety of rooms for up to 200 guests, you'll have no problem meeting interesting new travel buddies from exotic places.

Our hostel just oozes personality and soul, just like our guests. Every piece of décor has a story to tell. Using salvaged materials and found objects from various sources, the design is an organic concept blending Iceland’s past with a modern, international twist. The raw industrial spaces and vintage furnishings combine to give it a homey, eclectic feel.

With the affordable nightly rates, you’ll still have enough cash left over to enjoy a few pints of Viking beer or sample some local delicacies like hákarl‎ and brennivín.

We’re located in the centre of Reykjavik with a view across the bay to Mt. Esja. The old factory that houses KEX is also home to studios of various artists, dancers, and fashion designers. We’re within an easy walking distance to the city's interesting nightlife, restaurants, shopping streets, cultural attractions and other points of interest in the city centre. To reach those places a little further afield, the hostel is well connected to the city’s public bus system.

Please note that children under 16 cannot stay in shared dorms. Children over 16 years of age can stay in shared dorms when travelling with a guardian. Hausregeln anzeigen

    I stayed at the Kex Hostel for nearly 10 days and I really enjoyed my time there. The staff is friendly, open and helpful and the kitchen has been always clean. Its the perfect location and you have the bar downstairs if you want to socialize a bit more. Can only recommend it to anyone.

    Das Hostel ist in die Jahre gekommen, hat aber Charme. Die Küche ist unglaublich gut ausgestattet und die Lobby lädt zum chillen ein. Sehr zentrale Lage, nette MA, sogar die Betten waren bezogen. Die Matratzen sind gut und nicht durchgelegen. Der Raum an sich, ein 6 Bett- Damenschlafsaal, war für die vielen Koffer und Taschen etwas zu klein.

    Das Hostel war die absolut richtige Wahl für Island. Die Lage ist perfekt! Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten sowie das Busterminal sind fußläufig zu erreichen. Das Hostel hat eine eigene Bar in der ab und an auch Live-Musik gespielt. Die Zimmer sind nicht wer weiß wie groß, aber völlig ausreichend! Die Badezimmer sind sauber.. Die Küche leider nicht so, das liegt aber eher an den Gästen als an dem Hostel. Ansonsten sind alle Mitarbeiter sehr freundich und helfen einem bei Fragen immer weiter! Super Wi-Fi

    Alles war sauber und die Mitarbeiter stets freundlich. Allerdings war das Frühstück sehr eintönig und minimal.

    Ein super hübsches Hostel mit ganz viel Charme. Hier und dort entdeckt man noch altes von damals. Was mir sehr gefallen hat. Die Lage ist top! Zu Fuß kommt man z. B. schnell zum alten Hafen. Das Frühstücksbuffet hatte viel Auswahl. Zudem sehr vegan 😊 Es war gemütlich und sauber. Ich komme gerne wieder.
