Where Should I Buy my Groceries?

When you arrive at Bus Hostel you might be asking yourself where you should buy some pasta or Skyr for keeping you energy up. Reykjavík has plenty of supermarkets, but which is closest to the hostel? Nothing is too far from the hostel, but if you’re in a pinch, here’s what’s close by:

The closest small supermarket is Sunnubúðin. It’s located on Mávahlíð 26, and it’s only a 7 minute walk from the hostel.

Opening hours

Weekdays: 09:00-22:00

Weekends: 10:00-22:00

There’s another store nearby that’s opened 24 hours and sells warm snack foods. It’s called 10-11, and it’s just across the street from the hostel. A word of caution: 10-11 is one of the most expensive groceries in Iceland, so it might be best to buy what you absolutely need from there instead of doing a full shop.

The best choice is Bónus. Why? It’s the cheapest grocery store in Iceland. You can find one in Kringlan, the shopping mall just 15 minutes straight from the hostel, but if you’re heading into town, then there are also two of these supermarkets on Hallveigarstígur and Laugavegur.

Opening hours

Monday – Thursday: 11.00 – 18.30

Friday: 10.00 – 19.30

Saturday 10.00 – 18:00
