A Pioneer with a Pin Code Access System

HOSTEL B47 is a pioneer in Iceland in the use of a pin code access system, which means no waiting at a check-in and you get into your room right away. You have access to the hostel at any time, day or night, with a pin code to open the main door.

How it works:
Check our cool rooms and rates here! After completing your online booking, you can relax and prepare your trip to Iceland. A couple of days before your arrival we will send an email or a text message with the pin code that will be used both for the main entrance door and the door to your room. It is as easy as it gets: no fuss, no waiting to check in, and no lock out. Modern, reliable, comfortable and central, B47 has it all for making your stay in Reykjavík memorable.    

In the midst of it all
Laugavegur is the main shopping street of downtown Reykjavík and one of its oldest. The street used to lead to the hot springs in Laugardalur and the name Laugavegur means ‘wash road’. In the olden days the women of Reykjavík walked from Laugavegur to Laugardalur to wash their laundry. Laugavegur today is a home to many bars, nightclubs and restaurants. During the weekend the street is filled with people all night long.



Hallgrímskirkja Church is Reykjavík’s main landmark and its tower can be seen from almost everywhere in the city. It is located at the top of Skólavörðustígur, the arts and designs shopping street. It is the largest church in Iceland, and it offers a stunning view from its tower, 73 metres high.

Sundhöllin is Reykjavík’s only exclusively indoor pool, conveniently located in the centre of the city and a perfect place to start your day.
