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 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 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 decor 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.

Bed linen is not included in the online rates but is available for 1.100 ISK per person per stay.

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. Please note that there is a mandatory linen fee of 1.100 ISK per person per stay.
Lockers are available to secure your valuables. Bring a lock or buy one from us.

    We enjoyed our stay at Kex Hostel. Its cozy and the vintage furniture are quit lovely. The staff was very friendly and everything was clean. The bar is nice and they offer delicious Pizza and breakfast for an incredible price (iceland standard). Its right downtown, so you can walk everywhere, even to the bus station „BSI“ (15min)

    Kex is the place to stay in Reykjavik. We happen to stay over culture night in August and Kex was boosting from energy. Super loose and easy going bar and terrace to meet new people and friends.

    Sauberes Hostel in guter Lage, je nach Zimmet sogar mit Meerblick. Unser Zweibettzimmer war zwar nur spärlich ausgestattet, dafür war alles sauber. Genügend Toiletten und auch Einzelduschen und WCs pro Etage. Einzig die Wände sind sehr dünn und wackeln sogar wenn jemand seine Tür zuschlägt .

    Ich war über Silvester für eine Woche im KEX Hostel. Ich habe unglaublich viele nette Leute kennengelernt und hatte sehr viel Spaß! Würde immer wieder das selbe Hostel buchen! Auf jeden Fall weiter zu empfehlen.

    I really liked the vibe at the open spaces at Kex. Highlight for me was the breakfast, which was really nice and cheap. The staff was fun to be around. negative points: Small windows in the dorms which barely open but if you are staying with many people airing out is a MUST. The facilities were well maintained when you tried to shower off the peak-times. During peak the floor got a bit too wet and dirty. I found the price for the laundry a bit exaggerated. Prefer washing my clothes in the sink.

    Hostel would be great if it wasn‘t so damn noisy. When we were there we Couldn’t sleep till 4 in der morning, because there was a huge Party going on in the hostel and even afterwards people were partying loudly in the kitchen without anyone caring..

    Preis-Leistung sehr gut. Super Atmosphäre und klasse Bar. Das Schließsystem der Zimmertüren könnte verbessert werden, da diese ständig zuknallen und man dadurch ständig geweckt wird.

    Ich war für ein paar Nächte da. Der Raum war sehr klein und es gab nur ein Minifenster für 6 Leute. Manche Schließfächer waren kaputt. Die Küche war super dunkel! Das ging gar nicht.
