Welcome. We like you.

Bus Hostel is a spanking new hostel located within 10 min walking distance from the Reykjavik city high-street. We aim to be “cheap and cheerful”, catering to all kinds of travelers, in addition to being eco-friendly. Our goal is to be fully “green” and only use fair trade goods. We have been super styling the hostel building and offer cozy rooms and hip and cool social spaces. Read more

Shared Rooms Help! A shared room (typically a dorm) is a bedroom which you share with other people from the property. The number of beds in a room is shown in the room name, e.g. ‘5 Bed Dorm’, and you can book as many as you need. Some properties have male only dorms and female only dorms.

4 Bed Dorm - Mixed (Shared bathroom)


6 Bed Dorm - Mixed (Shared bathroom)


4 Bed Dorm - Female only (Shared bathroom)


10 Bed Dorm - Mixed (Shared bathroom)


16 Bed Dorm - Mixed (Shared bathroom)


24 Bed Dorm - Mixed (Shared bathroom)

Private Rooms Help! A private room is a room that is not shared with other people from the property – in other words, you book and pay for all the beds in the room. If you are traveling alone, for example, but want to book a double room, you must pay for two people in order to book the whole room.

About Bus Hostel Reykjavik

Our bar area – BUS stop - is the ideal place to mingle with other travelers, exchange ideas, play board games and chat with our fantastic staff who seem to know all the hip places to go and the people to see and what’s on in Reykjavik. Not to mention having information on all the latest bargains in town!

We offer a great variety of services and will do our up-most to make your stay at the Bus Hostel in Reykjavik, Iceland as ab fab as you are!

Budget style in Iceland

We are a budget hostel and social to a great extent, both "adventure travel" oriented and "leisure travel" oriented, loving all, even the more venturesome crowd.

Accommodation Information

We have 4, 6 10 and 16 bed dorms, both mixed and a few only for the gals or for the lads. We also offer more private facilities for the single traveller preferring more “me time” or for the couples who are happy to share a bed. And we do of course provide rooms accessible by wheel-chairs.

Please note that prices do not include bedding/duvet :)

Location Information

Bus Hostel Reykjavik is located within walking distance from most of Reykjavik‘s main attractions. 10-15 min walk to the city high street in one direction or Kringlan the mall in the other. A short stroll to Hallgrimskirkja, an architectural wonder you do not want to miss, or the dome – Perlan – both best places to visit for panoramic view of amazing Reykjavik. And don't forget - we lend you a bike!
