Located in the old Frón biscuit factory by the Reykjavik seafront, KEX (Icelandic for biscuit) is Reykjavik’s newest hostel.

 

 

Injecting antique charm to the buildings inherent industrial chic, KEX’s décor is an eclectic collection from all over: an old US court office desk for the reception, 1930’s East German school tables to study your guidebooks by and old maps covering the walls.

 

 

 

Apart from the dorms and rooms, KEX also houses a gym, barber, restaurant/bar (which has quickly become one a favourite hangout for city locals and travellers alike) and a library room, complete with full shelves of books and Icelandic films for the rainy days.

 

 

 

And, in the true spirit of the building’s history, they even bake fresh biscuits to dunk in your coffee!
