  • Hi! How far the flybus + bus stop to your hotel? I will be arriving late night like 10:35 Saturday at keflavik airport. Is there any transfortation at midnight In your hostel?

    Flybus runs a shuttle service from Keflavik airport based on arriving flights. You can board Flybus at the airport and it will take approximately 45 minutes to get to Reykjavik. You will be dropped off at Bus Stop 6, which is right around the corner from our hostel. When checking in after midnight, you simply need to use the call button and our night guard will buzz you up. Hope this helps!

  • Hi, How much do you charge for a transfer to the airport (one way only)? We have a 7am flight on Tuesday morning so would need to leave pretty early. We would like to stay with you, but don't want to pay a huge amount to get to the airport after checking out. Thank you.

    For smooth transport from/to KEF airport choose between Flybus and Airport Express. Both offer pick-up and drop-off very close to our location.

  • hi do you offer shampoo?

    To minimize our carbon footprint, we don’t offer any toiletries at our hostel other than hand soap and hand sanitizer. Other travellers tend to leave half-used shampoo/conditioner bottles in our common bathrooms for other guests to use.

  • Hi. Can you issue tax invoices or receipts for each of the guests, even if the reservation is made on behalf of one of these persons? I ask this question because we are traveling for a faculty project and we need those receipts for reimbursements.

    If we have all the needed information and the payment is made with us directly we can do this. If the payment is made through a 3rd party then they will need to issue the receipt as they are taking the payment.

  • Is it quiet at night?

    As we are in a very central location right next to the main street, Laugavegur, it is quite often busy on a Friday and Saturday night. Most bars and clubs are open until 04:30 and so we cannot always guarantee if it will be quiet on these nights.

  • Hi, I am looking at coming to visit Iceland and your hostel sounds perfect for me. I cannot find your property on the list of accommodation that welcomes guest in quarantine. I am fully vaccinated. Do I need to quarantine and is your place acceptable? Very confusing.

    The current restrictions are that with a vaccination you need to undergo one test at the airport and must wait for the test results (can take up to 24 hours) in quarantine. You can wait for your results in our hostel, but only in a private room.
