With a prime location on the main street in downtown Reykjavik, Reykjavík Backpackers has a fun bar, nice staff, a restaurant and it's one of the best value places to stay in Reykjavik. And they have a hostel in Akureyri too.

Kex hostel is also a great hostel which often features live music. Their bar is also a lot of fun and their food is great.
