Set in a 1930s art deco building, this funky hostel boasts comfy lounges, two guest kitchens, a stylish bar, free WiFi, and an enviable location on Laugavegur (Reykjavik's main shopping centre). You and the girls can make yourselves at home and enjoy ultimate comfort in Iceland's unique, stunning capital.

Before heading out for a night on the town, you can set yourselves up with a delicious meal in the hotel's brilliant restaurant. As well as traditional Icelandic lamb with potatoes and vegetables, you'll also find a range of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free meals available. Sit back and enjoy a relaxed dining experience as you celebrate the bride-to-be.

The ground floor also features a cool, friendly bar where you can treat yourselves to a round of cocktail or delicious Icelandic craft beers and mingle with other travellers. In addition to some unique cocktails, quality wine, bar snacks and an ever-changing selection of craft beers, this bar also happens to have one of the largest selection of bottles in the country!

As well as a 24-hour reception and trendy bar, you'll also find two shared kitchens which come fully equipped with a dishwasher (as you can't spend time washing up on your big weekend!). So you and the girls can whip up a feast or rustle up some snacks in the smart, homely kitchen. Ideal!

The bedrooms themselves are stylish, clean, and cosy and have been custom made to be completely noise-free and come with blackout curtains to block out Iceland's famous midnight sun. This hostel achieves the impossible: locating itself in the heart of the city while ensuring their guests get their much-needed beauty sleep.

This funky, upscale hostel is truly a great place for you and the girls to base yourselves and make the most of your time in Iceland's capital.
