Beschrijving van de Accomodatie Inrichting

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. Bekijk huisregels

    I had a really nice stay here. Super friendly, close to the center. The location was perfect for doing trips. I was travelling alone and always felt safe and at ease.

    Perfecte locatie, dichtbij hoofdstraat met mooi uitzicht. Leuke uitstraling, schoon en de man van de receptie was erg aardig en behulpzaam. Enige minpuntje was dat ze recht naast het hostel aan het verbouwen waren en dat was af en toe een beetje luid.

    Nice hostel in Reykjavik, where there is a lot to do. If you want to sleep early, don’t choose this hostel (even though the give you free earplugs for the nights). This big hostel has all the facilities you need and is just around the centre of Reykjavik. I really enjoyed my stay there, it’s really worth visiting when you’re in Reykjavik for a few days.

    The KEX hotel is a nice place to stay but I won't recommend it during the Covid-19 pandemic. My sister and me stayed there for just one night. And in our room turned out to be a person with the covid-19 virus. So be aware that a lot of people who took the test (mandatory at the airport) wait on their testresults in hostels like this. Afterwards we we're contacted by the Icelandic government and placed in government quarantine. So please be aware of the risk yoy take!

    Hostel with a seaview. Breakfast is really good and you should take it because for that price you will not find much cheaper not even in the supermarket. The Belarussian girl from the breakfast is cute and kind. Showers are mutual but you can take also a shower separate as there are 1 person showers. Kitchen is clean and-big enough.however the refrigerators aren’t big enough for the whole floor. As you have prolly read, the doors really suck and make lots of noise when closing. Overall good tho

    reception staff was very friendly and helpful. barstaf was a bit cranky. Very convenient was the taxi service. i needed to go early in the morning to the airport and I could get a taxi within 5 minutes. This was the second time i came. If I am being honest, it was a bit less than the previous time. Bathrooms and showers were kind of dirty. My plug near my bed didnt work so I didnt have light or power to charge my phone. Also no response on either social media or by email when i contacted them.

    Great, energetic place. Good food, beds and clean rooms. Bathrooms are fine to. If you want to sleep in you've got a problem. When you go on tours there's no need to set your alarm clock. The slamming doors, that make the walls thrumble from 7 in the morning, will wake you.

    Room was loud with the bar downstairs. The waiting at the reception was quite long. The door of the room was so loud when it closes that you wake up right away, maybe nice to put a different closing system on it.

    Good location - super expensive for waking up due to construction works every morning at 7. Kitchen was poorly equipped and very dark. 2 pans (one of it broken). Dishwasher broken. Amazing bar though and nice interior design.

    Fijn hostel, leuk ingericht en goeie sfeer. Maar veel te duur! Zelfs voor IJslandse begrippen.
