  • Is it quiet at night?

    Yes there are no noisy bars, pubs or loud traffic near the hostel. Our own bar closes for service at 23:00 so no late nights there either. Please note that most of our rooms are shared dorms. If you prefer that option you will most likely end up with a few roommates. Fortunately most of our guests are considerate.

  • Hi, is there enough free parking spots around Bus Hostel building? Is it safe to park there?

    Bus hostel guests have a few parking spots at the side of the building. If the parking space is full there is another public one, free of charge approximately 100 meters from the front entrance. The parking spaces are not watched, but we rarely hear of issues regarding the safety, Reykjavik is a fairly safe city but leaving the car is at one's own risk.

  • I am reserving for two people. If I book one bed, am I booking one full bunk bed or just one bed of the bunk bed?

    If you book for 1 person you will get one bed allocated in the room (which is either upper or lover bunk bed). Another example, if you book for 2 persons you get 2 beds (which might be upper and lower bunk).
