The Bus Hostel is a fun and quirky set up - with a relaxed and playful atmosphere yet quiet and not chaotic in any sense. A 14 person room is clean, bland and the mattresses are pretty comfortable. However bedding is an extra fee and a locker requires a deposit, although the hostel is a safe and friendly. There are plenty of plugs about and the staff can lend adaptors. Another great perk that sets the bus hostel apart is the bike lending scheme, whereby you can rent a bike for the day for free but with a small deposit. They are good and durable bikes but the saddles are quite uncomfortable. The kitchen facilities are excellent with all sorts of hardware supplied for you and other fridge facilities with split Shelves by floor, which a a great idea that works very well.
Showers are very clean and very spacious. The logistics of the hostel work very fluently. It is in a pretty good location - close to the bus station (about 8 minutes walking) and about 12 minutes walk from town centre.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Bus Hostel Reykjavik is a brand, spanking new hostel located within 15 min walking distance from the Reykjavik city high-street. We aim to be "cheap and cheerful", catering to all kinds of travelers, in addition to being Eco-friendly. Our goal is to be fully "green" and only use fair trade goods. We have been super styling the hostel building and offer cozy rooms and hip and cool social spaces. We are a budget hostel and social to a great extent, both "adventure travel" oriented and "leisure travel" oriented, loving all, even the more venturesome crowd. We have 4, 6, 8, 10 and 16 bed dorms, both mixed and a few only for the gals or for the lads. We also offer more private facilities for the single traveller preferring more "me time" or for the couples who are happy to share a bed. And we do of course provide rooms accessible by wheel-chairs. Drop us a line if you are looking for accommodation for your group or if there is anything you need to discuss! ... more less
