Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about the Kex Hostel:

"I did Iceland last March solo :) I would recommend Kex Hostel - it's a cool hostel with live music, a bar and on-site barber and it's a great place to make some friends."  See More

"The most chic hostel I've ever had the pleasure of staying at was Kex Hostel in Reykjavik."  See More

"I stayed at Kex Hostel, which is a pretty cool place if you want to stop in for a drink--the whole downstairs has a cool bar feel, and you can pop in even if you're not a guest."  See More

"I've never stayed in them but the Icelandair Hotel Reykjavík Marina and Kex Hostel are cool looking places and Hotel Borg and 101 HOTEL could be good options too."  See More

"Here are a few suggestions my friend from Reykjavik had for my parent's trip there last summer: Stykkisholmur is a beautiful old town 2 hours from reykjavik !"  See More

"V2.0 My Iceland reccommendations would be as follows: Stop at the Blue Lagoon when traveling from and to the airport (most shuttles stop there on the way to the city). if you arrive on an early fight there is only a handful of people and it can be surreal. The best option bar-none to see Iceland is to move out of Reykjavik and circle the island to see the many different type of landscapes. Rent a 4WD vehicle and stay in local farms that double as guest houses. (look for: "My travels to Iceland" by Dennys Bisogno on ibooks for one of the best travel guides I found for this purpose). If you don't have much time you can always use the guys at www.discover.is to drive you around in one of their tours (tip: further drives = better views) For physical challenges: -Dive at one of these two sites (the folks at ww.dive.is are great at organizing these dives): Silfra Crack - A waterway of glacier water that runs between the Eurasian and Amerian continental plates . Strýtan - An underwater volcanic chimney..probably the closest one to the Surface (you may need a dry suit certification). -You can hike at Landmannalaugar where the Laugavegurinn trail is (arguably) one of the best hiking trails in the planet...its 2-6 day hike and you will need to reserve huts and stop stations in advance. These trails close towards the end of September. Others September might be early but you should try to catch the aurora borealis. You can even dogsled/snowmobile during the night under it. This website predicts when and where the Aurora will be most visible: !"  See More
