KEX. It’s the Icelandic word for “biscuit” and new social hostel in Reykjavik. What’s not to love?
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 centre, 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.
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, and a better than average chance of making your friends back home quite jealous indeed.
