KEX. It's the Icelandic word for 'biscuit' and a 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, including a café and bar, lounge area, heated outdoor patio, tourist information desk, laundry room and free Wi-Fi.Please note that linen is not included in the 8, 10 and 16 bed dorms. You're free to bring your own sleeping bag or duvet.In addition to our dormitory rooms we offer three different double rooms.The Double Plus has one double bed, a private bathroom, linens and towels and a fantastic seaside view.The Double Standard has one 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.The Twin Private has two single beds, linens and towels and a better-than-average chance of making your friends back home quite jealous indeed.Ladies - for your comfort and peace-of-mind, we offer female-only dorms. If you would prefer to reserve a bed in such a dorm, please make sure to do so directly from the reservation window. If none are available, you are welcome to contact us after booking to double-check.Families - a few of our four- and six-bed dorms can be used as family rooms. They include a bunk bed and a double bed. Baby cribs are also available to families traveling with a diaper bag. Please be sure to contact us after booking in order to arrange for this type of room. Space is limited, and family rooms are reserved on a first-come basis. Two guest kitchenettes and private laundry facilities are also available. And with a variety of
