Keflavík is a utilitarian town that serves as the gateway to Iceland and there are a couple of Keflavík hostels. Though most of the town is easy mistakable for any Midwestern American town, save for the backdrop of the sea, this town serves as host the the country's international airport and is a common place to stop through due to it the thermal pools of the Blue Lagoon and the capital Reykjavik being so close.

Although you are likely to be here to due to the airport, its a long windy walk along a country road into town. Public transportation to the airport and into Reykjavik is extremely scarce and limited to commuter hours. There is on-call service to the Blue Lagoon, and day trips to Reykjavik via public transportation are possible if done using the buses that bring the people Keflavik into Reykjavik to work and back home in the evening. These routes stop all over town. If you have a car, the city is easy to navigate and on-street parking is sufficient, the main road between the Airport and Reykjavik bypasses town but is easy to get to for a fast and easy trip.

Keflavik itself is small enough to walk around and there are plenty of cheaper fast-food places to eat as well as shops for groceries and everyday needs.

There aren't many choices for hostels in Keflavik. If you have a car, location doesn't much matter, and being expensive Iceland price is likely the deciding factor for hostelers. If you don't have a car, stay in town close the bay and main street “Njarðarbraut.“
