Frequently asked questions

Can I book a cheap hostel in the centre of Reykjavik?

Reykjavik has the most extensive accommodation base in all of Iceland. Therefore, you will certainly be able to find a hostel at a lower price than the regular one. We encourage you to check places a little further from the city centre and make reservations in advance as soon as possible. The best options in the most convenient locations quickly disappear from the market, especially when you are planning a summer vacation in Iceland.

Which districts of Reykjavik are the best if I plan a hostel accommodation and a guided tour the next day?

There is no better place than the centre of Reykjavik if you are planning a guided tour the next day. District 101, as well as part of areas 102 and 104, are considered the very centre of the capital. Also, this is where the most popular trips to the southern coast, the Golden Circle, or the Snaefellsnes Peninsula begin. To use the easiest way to be picked up for a guided tour, book a hostel near the Hallgrimskirkja church or Laugavegur shopping street.

What types of rooms are offered by hostels in Reykjavik?

Most hostels in Reykjavik offer dormitory rooms for 4 to 8 people. Triple or double rooms with shared or private bathrooms are also an option, depending on the property. In dormitory rooms, it is possible to reserve a bed instead of the entire room, especially when you travel alone.

The easiest way to get from the Keflavik International Airport to the capital is by bus to the BSI station in Reykjavik. From there you can go by taxi or city bus to your hostel.

You can also do it online in advance - you'll get the best prices and guaranteed availability. Another option is to go by rented car, which you can pick up after arrival in Iceland. travelling by taxi from the airport to Reykjavik is the most expensive way.
