This was the closest hostel to the airport, and obviously geared up for people leaving and arriving at all hours. We stayed in one of the cabins outside with its own bathroom and a heap of space to sort our gear. It was clean and tidy with basic kitchen utensils so we could cook. Only niggle was the heater in...

You get what you pay for. Close to airport. Clean rooms. 20 min walk to restaurant in Keflavik. We didn't try their breakfast so I can't have any opinion about that. Fairly noisy at night while you here everyone entering the wooden indoor stairs.

Clean, basic accommodation. Did the job for the night but worth noting that the walls are paper thin. Our room was right next to the shared bathroom and you could hear EVERYTHING! Not great when you have to get up at 5.30am for a flight. The staff were polite and friendly. Breakfast was ok, again pretty basic. Shuttle bus to... More

Staff were soooo nice and helpful, and that free airport service is the best!!!! Cabin was cute and breakfast great. Highly recommend!!! ***Note: airport service from the airport means you call them from the airport, and they will come get you ( not an hourly shuttle or something). Going to the airport, sometimes yes they do have a shuttle leaving... More

This is a typical airport hotel - conveniently located cca 3 minutes of drive from the airport. Free shuttle is provided. We had a room with shared bathroom - very basic, very clean. Breakfast was basic as well. But it suits to its purpose.

We stayed here for 1 night after a late arrival. As this is a guesthouse mostly for travellers with late or early flights, rooms are small and functional. However, they also offer small cottages - for longer stays, I guess. A big plus was the free transport service from the airport - even if you arrive in the middle of... More

We arrived to Keflavik at the end of our journey and we booked our room for the very last moment. Rooms are quite nice, maybe not extremely clean but you can manage (we found some empty plastic bottle under bed in one room and apple core in the other room. Apart from that we couldn't complain. Breakfast was OK for... More

This is a practical option for those wanting a place close to the international airport. The owners operate a shuttle to the airport and we felt very confident we would get there in time for our flight. We had a cabin - it was pretty basic with quite a small double bed. The curtains were not really sufficient to keep... More

Alex Guesthouse is about a 3 minute drive to the airport so no time is wasted trying to get there. The guesthouse offers free transport and free breakfast that starts at 4 am!

Perfect place to stay over last night. 5 minutes drive to airport. Nice polish receptionist - really helpful. Basic breakfast but wooden house is stunning! Add more 10 quids and take the bungalow - it's worth it!
