Very impressive interior design. Its modern, and yet comfortable. The hostel is spotless! I hope they get to maintain that. We stayed for 3 nights, and the staff were awesome from day 1. Always had a good night's sleep. Wish we could extend, but we can't, so we will just visit again!
Modern, artsy, fresh. Super duper beautiful, and comfortable. Cozy, and warm. Its just perfect. The people were very kind, and warm. The location is perfect. The beds, of course, and very comfortable. The entire hostel is clean. Just really nice. One of the best hostels ive been to.
Very nice hostel, but cleanliness and friendly welcome are not at ddv
Very well !
Kex is a new establishment. The dormitories are clean and quiet. The jacussi and the free yoga classes are really nice
Pretty trendy place
The great atmosphere! Kex is an old factory and they certainly did their best to preserve the retro feeling.
We loved Kex hostel! Clean rooms, lots of bathroom/shower options. Fabulous food & bar downstairs. Very welcoming atmosphere and we really enjoyed our stay here!! We were able to walk to a local pastry shop and get around on public bus system right from Kex hostel.
Great atmosphere, they have a really cool bar and kitchen with jazz nights on Tuesday that draws in a large local crowd. Lot's of friendly travellers with plenty of common areas to hang out in. Great location, can walk most places in the city within 10 mins.
Welcoming atmosphere and a great social scene. Beds were comfortable. The food is excellent. Downtown is within walking distance. Easy to drive to.
The breakfast was excellent.
I've stayed here twice now and both times it's been excellent. Nice staff, amazing decor and stunning views and it's all still in keeping with Icelandic culture.
Unique ambiance and very helpful staff.
The location, the bar, and the atmosphere.
It has a really unique decore. Very cool place.
Amazing stuff good vibes and the bar was very nice with great food and music. One of the best hostels I've stayed in
The atmosphere was great, and the staff always already to help. Score 10
great decor and a lively bar, helpful staff
Very cool atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, great food, and very clean. Also a great location, within walking distance of most attractions in Reykjavik and right by the water with a great view.
Nice bar/lounge area. Although could do with a few more couches since early check in isn't possible
Great breakfast (but please add Nutella)
Cheap for Icelandic standards
The bar downstairs had a great atmosphere and the rooms were very large and spread out which was great when they were full! There are lots of lockers in the rooms. The design of the place is super fun and hipster. The location is perfect walking distance to everything!
Staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant and bar is really nice, freedom burger is amazing!
goodw location, big kitchens and sitting areas.
Encourages interaction with other guests and the facilities are quite complete. The interior is nice and cosy
Awesome atmosphere and bar downstairs!
Beds were comfy and they were a great venue for Iceland Airwaves. Good Location and very big building. Good bathroom vs bed ratio and good waterpressure in the showers.
The unique style and inviting common spaces to meet other people.
nice but small and dark rooms
The atmosphere in particular!
Friendly staff helped me with luggage, tour booking. Buffet breakfast was excellent; they offered it to me at no charge. Only a short walk into town. Lots of good local entertainment for guests (even the local citizens came here for jazz nights). Beds were quite comfortable. Security system (pass card) was effective.
Not much. The bar looked friendly but I didn't go in.
At the top, I recommend! A hostel located 15min from the city center of Reykjavik (by car), with all shops nearby for food and a small pub for relaxation! The staff is young, smiling, attentive and pleasant. The rooms and bathroom are clean, the advantage is that it is forbidden to travel in shoes in the common areas and in the rooms, so it does not have land or other all the time! The kitchen is fully equipped for beginners and experienced! Great tables, great for meetings, and a little extra: Coffee and tea are available which allows you to meet in the morning or late afternoon in the common dining room to discuss with other holidaymakers! Having rented a car, I did not have the opportunity to inquire about bus lines, but for all vehicles, free parking is available!
The door is locked 24/7. I arrived at 8pm. There was no staff at the desk then, or all night. When staff finally came, they harassed me. I dont recommend this hostel at all. Get ready to starve. Everything closes at 9pm. Bring food. Guests are nice and friendly. Staff are difficult and superficial. Complaining about the very tourist that give them a job. They made me super uncomfortable. Your first feeling is I am stranded in the middle of nowhere.
Clean and comfortable facilities
There's privacy in the dorm rooms
The showers are awesome
The hostel, overall, is just great, and I would not hesitate to recommend and stay here again. Easiest 10/10 review from me.
By far, one of the best hostels I've been to. I love how homey the feel is. The beds are spacious and clean. The hostel is very clean. The bathrooms are wide and clean. Everything is just looking amazing, even the their full kitchen and common area. This is definitely worth it to visit.
good !!!not to bad
large common area,
well equipped kitchen
It was a nice place to come back to after a long day. Pretty standard hostel, good value for money.
The price and the people.
Clean and friendly, good value for money.
Very cheap! Good place to use as a home base. I really only spent time there when I was sleeping. Wifi worked well and was able to video call home.
Quiet hostel located away from the city center and partiers. People drawn to staying here were on the whole respectful. / Easily reached by direct-to-hotel bus from KEF airport. I used GrayLine which was $1 cheaper than Flybus at the time, but both serve the hostel. / Super warm duvets. / 10 person room located downstairs which means you don't need a sleep mask during all-sun-all-the-time summer as the room doesn't have much natural light. / Ample electrical outlets so everyone could charge their phone. / Each bed got a key to the room. / Easily marked beds so you could tell which one was yours. / Women's bathroom has 3 separate bathroom pods inside. Each contains a sink, toilet, and shower and can be secured with a door. Hair dryer and mirror located outside of the bathroom pod. / Kitchen facility was excellent for self-catering. / Secure lockers for secure storage, though I never used them.
Friendly staff, kitchen to make food, and wifi in rooms.
Cheap and cheerful hostel, rooms as described. Great if you just need somewhere to lay your head at night in Iceland!
There are lots of facilities.
Was only here breifly on my way to airport so cant comment much.
The showers were big and clean, there was a massive kitchen and a pool table, good wifi. The guy at the desk was super helpful and nice
The staff were really friendly and helpful
has it's own kitchen, it's cheap
This place was really cheap, but still very clean and and well kept. The showers were hot, the beds were warm, and the kitchen facilities were good.
Really friendly and helpful staff. Everything is very clean, great facilities. Would definitely stay here again. I stayed in a 16 bed room and was expecting the worst after reading reviews on here but it was actually absolutely fine and safe.
I really enjoyed the competitive price, which is inclusive of linen and wifi, the two things I needed. Also the staff was really nice and allowed me to sit in the restaurant to watch the World Cup even though I didn't buy anything.
For a good experience, you have to book a private room. We had the cheep mixed one, which wasn't that fun.
The breakfast looked delicious. But again, that was only included for the private rooms.
Otherwise, the hostel looks really nice.
staff are very nice and helpful. Bathroom is clean and large.
good price and location
No hidden fees. Easy check in and check out processes. Friendly staff. Very affordable.
