Housed in an old biscuit factory in downtown Reykjavik, this modern hotel blends an industrial feel with an eclectic, contemporary touch.
Kex Hostel is listed in affiliation with Booking.com.
More than just a hostel, at KEX you will find dorms and rooms for up to 215 guests along with a restaurant and bar, lounge area, heated outdoor patio, tourist information desk, laundry room, guest kitchens, meeting room, free WiFi, and more.
Take your pick of the rooms, with everything from dorm bunk to family room available. All rooms are stylish and chic, with carefully chosen vintage furniture and framed pictures fused with industrial feel lamps and bed frames. If you’re after some extra luxury why not go for a double room plus, with an en suite bathroom and great views over the ocean and mountains.
Start the day right with a visit to the BAXTUR breakfast buffet in the Sæmundur dining area. Here you’ll find a selection of Icelandic jams and local cheese on slices of freshly-baked bread – as well as some delicious porridge with your choice of toppings. Come the evening, the bar serves a great selection of beers, and there’s also free Wi-Fi throughout, so feel free to work away over a cold, local beer. Or, if you’re trying to get away from it all, pick up a book and leave one in return at the book exchange.
Outside you’ll find a heated outdoor patio, perfect for watching the sun go down at the end of a busy day. And when you’re ready to eat head to the gastro-pub for a dinner of fresh, locally sourced Icelandic cuisine, or if you’re in the mood to cook why not take advantage of one of the two guest kitchens available to you?
When you’re ready to explore the city, bikes can be hired direct from KEX. Right next to the reception you can also meet up with KEXLAND's tour experts to make plans for your Icelandic adventures, or simply step outside and into an array of cafés, museums, shops, bars, music venues and attractions that this city has to offer. Walk everywhere with the main shopping street, the harbour, the city centre, the main bus terminal and even a swimming pool within easy reach.
There is an on site barber; you can book all tours here.
