Description de l’établissement

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.

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. Voir le règlement intérieur

    Kex is the place to stay if you want to meet friendly people in a chill atmosphere. WC and showers ok. Big kitchen with some products for everybody. A very good restaurant with happy hour and list of beers. One of the best is the breakfast with a large choice of food (cereal, milk, coffee, tuna salad, cream, tomato, cucumber, different kind of bread). Just one point maybe, the fact that they would maybe charge you for the duvet...

    Cet ancien bâtiment industriel a été remarquablement transformé et doté d'une formidable atmosphère : recyclage d'objets anciens, nombreux coins très cosy, beau bar... Superbe petit-déjeuner, personnel charmant.

    Stayed at Kex hostel for 2 nights. Perfect location. The rooms are quite quiet and very clean. The bar area is really comfortable and relaxing. The beers and pizzas are affordable and good. The only thing was the breakfast: they don’t make any but offer a “breakfast box”, which does the trick but is expensive. Still, it’s nice to have something to eat in the morning when you don’t want to go out. :) Anyway, we had a great time there !

    Espace bar restaurant TRES convivial pour échanger avec quelques voyageurs sans obligation de consommer. J'étais en dortoir féminin, rien à redire pour la prestation. Prévoir un cadenas pour le casier.
