Feels like my home in Iceland. Great hostel located in the heart of Reykjavík. It gets great facilities, good ambience and a very friendly and helpful staff. I definitely recommend Loft Hostel for travellers heading to Reykjavík.

Fantastic hostel, very welcoming staff and found that all guests were very welcoming too. Would highly recommend as very centrally located. Can get a bit noisy on Friday and Saturday as it is located along the main street but that's all the more reason to go out and join in the fun with the locals.

I stayed here twice and both my stays were excellent! The location is about as central in Reykjavik as you could get, (the only downside perhaps that there sometimes was noise from partying in the street), the two best points for me were the incredible help and cooperation given by the staff and the good wheelchair accessibility. Also good was the breakfast and the shared laptop in the common room. Breakfast and stay were a bit expensive but then this is Iceland.

Had a great stay at this hostel for four nights in total spread over a seven day period. The staff in particular were excellent! All very knowledgeable and went out of their way to give advice and book tours and trips for myself and my friend. Unfortunately breakfast is not included, and costs 1750Kr which is a fair bit. The beers are pretty good, but not as good as some of the local bars (Kaffinbarrin and Micro bar). All in a very pleasant stay and would happily stay again. Kudos to the staff.

The hostel staff were always incredibly helpful, offering advice on which companies to go on tours with and even offering a cup of tea when I was unwell. The girls' dorm was awesome because it had its own bathroom and shower in the room (no trying to put all your belongings in a bag to do the run to the showers down a hall).

A great, extremely clean and friendly hostel. Very inviting and has a nice ambience. Each dorm has its own bathroom which is a great convenience compared to other hostels I've stayed in. The kitchen was very impressive and extremely clean. Very well organized and there wasn't any dirty dishes at anytime I went into the kitchen. The staff were very helpful with booking my tours and tried all options until we found one available. There is ample seating in the bar and lounge area with modern decor.

One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Staff is friendly and very knowledgeable. The common/bar area is really great. Beds have a small shelf with a power outlet and a reading light - perfect. Guest kitchen is big and well-equipped.

Excellent facilities, loved the bar and lounge on the top floor - great place to meet people and chill. Great and clean kitchen with lots of free communal food. Comfortable rooms and very spacious. PERFECT location on the main street downtown. Staff are nice.

Really great hostel, common areas were great. Staff were awesome, really helpful & knowledgeable. Happy Hour meant getting decent priced beers & there was even live music! Room was lovely, each bed has its own power outlet, light (the luxuries we look for in hostels) and space for those essentials you need in the night. Central location, literally at the end of the main street (but quiet enough to sleep even on weekend nights). Everywhere was super clean & generally had a lovely stay!

Great qwerky hostel. Really clean, Beds comfy, showers warm and awesome (if you want to know why the showers are awesome then you should definitely check out the 'Hellisheiði Power Plant Geothermal Energy Exhibition') The communal area is really nice and relaxed more like a Starbucks meets a trendy library. Happy hour on selected beers meant it was cheap to have a few drinks, play a game of chess and relax. I liked this hostel, if you are looking for a party atmosphere then maybe not for you.

Walls are very thin, so it can be quite noisy at night. No breakfast available, but many coffee places nearby.

My favorite hostel so far in Reykjavik. Stayed in an 8-person mixed dorm. Bathroom and shower was in the room and clean. Outlets and shelves by the top bunks were nice. Cubbies and hooks to store things. Location was great and bar/lounge area was nice.
