Can I check in after 11 when the reception closes

Yes, you can. If you have not arrived by the time the reception closes we'll put your key card in an envelope with your name on it, along with facilities instructions and leave it on the reception table for you. Then you can officially do the check-in the next day. The code for the front door will be sent to you via email before your arrival.


How far is it from the hostel to the downtown?

The main shopping street in Reykjavik is just down the road in about 10 minutes walking distance and the city center is in about 15 minutes walking distance. By locating the hostel just a short walking distance from the city center allows us to bring our prices down.

Where can I get Icelandic food?

The closest restaurant we'd recommend for Icelandic food is Café Loki. It's located in about 15 minutes walking distance by the famous church Hallgrimskirkja. Try the meat soup! The Grillmarket is a bit further away but they have great food and a super stylish restaurant. Þrir Frakkar is a cozy restaurant a little off the main road and not so far from Hallgrimskirkja. They have a good variety of fish courses. Fish Company is a stylish place in the city center worth checking out.
