As already has been reported, HI Iceland has bought a property in downtown Reykjavík and will open there a new hostel. At the beginning of July HI Iceland received the property and over the next few months revisions and constructions will take place. The aim is to open over a 100 bed hostel, before the end of the year. The hostel at will be the third hostel that HI Iceland owns in Reykjavík but the others are the Reykajvík City hostel in Laugardalur and the Reykjavík Downtown hostel at Vesturgata 17. An increasing request and demand has been for hostels in the Reykjavík area, so the new hostel will be a necessary and joyful addition. Further information about the new hostel will be published soon.
