The old biscuit factory

KEX is the social hostel in Reykjavik city center

Housed in an old biscuit factory downtown Reykjavik and furnished with salvaged materials and found objects from various places, KEX is an organic concept blending a vintage industrial feel with an eclectic, contemporary touch.

More than just a hostel, at KEX you will find a variety of dorms and rooms for up to 215 guests along with a restaurant and bar, lounge area, heated outdoor patio, tourist information desk, laundry room, old school gym, guest kitchens, meeting room, free WiFi, and more.


Downtown by the sea

KEX is just steps away from an interesting array of cafés, museums, shops, bars, music venues and various attractions.

More or less everything that matters is within  walking distance – the main shopping street, the harbour, the city centre, the main bus terminal, a swimming pool, etc.
