Hlemmur-Square-Upscale-Hostel-Gear-Patrol-Lead-FullThe newly opened Hlemmur Square hotel in Reykjavik, Iceland is redefining the high-low hotel experience. There are 26 shared hostel-style rooms available for as little as $20 per night, along with 18 private rooms that cost as much as $180 per night.
The hostel suites are especially unique for budget lodging. Expect duvet-covered beds, complimentary local telephone calls, and even room service. The private rooms meanwhile come complete with oak parquet floors, black-and-white photographs of Old Reykjavik, beds with Lissadell linens, and stunning, city views.
