Kex Hostel Bar



Kex Hostel, although obviously a hostel, is a lot more than just that. The bar at Kex Hostel Reykjavik has become a very popular hang-out place among local Icelanders and travelers, whether they are staying there or not. Maybe it‘s the friendly and stylish environment, or the reasonably priced drinks. It could be because of it‘s the perfect location or the inspiring crowd. It could be for all those reasons. Located in an old biscuit factory in the heart of Reykjavik, Kex Hostel Bar is a welcome addition to the bar culture in Iceland.

Not a lot of people know this, and few of them know why, but beer was prohibited in Iceland until 1989. After the ban was lifted, the Icelandic nation had a lot of cathing up to do, and we‘re still trying. At the beautifully designed Kex Hostel you can enjoy frosty pints of local beers, cocktails, wines and spirits in good company.
