About KEX Hostel
Of course, you might not even want to venture outside of the hostel with all its features: a cafe and bar, lounge area, heated outdoor patio, tourist information desk, laundry room, small fitness center, and free Wi-Fi. Two guest Kitchenettes and private laundry facilities are also available. And with a variety of rooms for up to 138 guests, you’ll have no problem meeting interesting, new travel buddies from exotic places.
KEX oozes with 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, KEX 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 offer 4 types of dormitory rooms 16 bed, 10 bed, 6 bed and 4 bed rooms. Please not that you can either bring your own sleeping bag or add linen for 1000 IKr.
In addition to our dormitory rooms we offer three different double rooms:
1. Double Plus - 1 double bed, 1 private bathroom, linens and towels, and 1 fantastic seaside view.
2. Double Standard - 1 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.
3. Twin - 2 single beds, linens and towels.

KEX is located in downtown Reykjavik and offers direct views to the North Atlantic. We don't mean to brag, but it is close to everything.
