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: 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.
