Hlemmur Square

Hlemmur Square combines luxury hostel and upscale hotel accommodations under one roof. Named for the central meeting spot that once served as a watering hole for travelers and their horses, Hlemmur Square is quickly becoming an extension of the city’s downtown neighborhood.

Located on the 3rd and 4th floors, the hostel rooms offer an upscale dormitory style accommodation. The beds are custom made to be absolutely noise free and feature the colors of Reykjavík with their colorful corrugated iron underside. The spacious rooms offer ample space with seating areas, large lockers for every guest and black out curtains to help ensure your good night sleep during Iceland’s famous midnight sun. The beds are made up with quality linens, bed sheets, duvets and pillows. We do not accept sleeping bags. Hostel guests have access to all the facilities such as food service, bar with a happy hour and lounges. Two guest-kitchens and a set of lounges on the hostel floor with a playroom provide a place to cook, relax and meet other travelers.
