Location & Nearby

The Student Hostel is a perfect starting point to explore Reykjavik's captivating attractions. It nestles inside the beautiful campus of the University of Iceland and is within a short walking distance from downtown Reykjavik.

Just a quarter of a mile from the accommodation is Tjornin, a prominent lake with waterfront pathways and benches for leisurely strolls. Tjornin lake is renowned as a haven for ducks and migratory birds, making it a popular destination for birdwatchers during summer. 

A little walk or drive further are two of the most iconic cultural landmarks in the city, the Hallgrimskirkja church and the National Museum of Iceland. 

The Hallgrimskirkja church is Iceland's tallest, reaching 240 feet (74.5 meters). Visitors can climb to the top of its tower for panoramic views of the city and surrounding landscapes. It boasts a remarkable structure that resembles the popular Icelandic basalt columns.

Meanwhile, history enthusiasts will appreciate visiting the National Museum of Iceland, which offers insight into the country's past, including exhibits on Viking heritage, art, and culture. 

On the other hand, if you want to dive deeper into the local scenes, a trip to Laugavegur street is ideal. Located just two miles (three kilometers) from the Student Hostel, Laugavegur street is home to the city's best souvenir shops, specialty stores, restaurants, and cafes.

Additionally, the University of Iceland's main campus itself can be an exciting place to explore, with its mix of modern and historic buildings, libraries, and cultural events.
