    Superb

    If I go back to Iceland, I would 100% come back. I want to try Loft as well now. Everything about this hostel was outstanding and worth the extra cost. It was clean, quiet, and in a great spot. Staff, especially the woman who checked me in was so incredibly nice and helpful. I asked her about an excursion I was going on the next day and without asking, she looked up weather and acted very excited for me. I found this to be so sweet. She was awesome.The room was so nice with an attached bathroom.

    Great location in city - close and easy walk to key areas in Reykjavik. My friends and I stayed in an all-female dorm and the dorm was very spacious, each bed has its own light, charging plug, and storage. The Hostel has a separate area for rooms and reception so it's nice and quiet. The hostel itself is very clean; staff are very nice and helpful. Would definitely stay here again and recommend this Hostel for anyone looking to stay in Reykjavik.

    I really enjoyed my time at Downtown HI hostel. The staff was very nice and I felt extremely safe as a solo female traveler. Awesome location and reliable WiFi. Bathroom was a little messy but I think it was because I was staying in a 10 person all female room. I wish there was a larger area to hangout during the day but the lounge area was nice. Breakfast was a tad expensive as well. Overall, great experience!

    The location is very close to bus stops, harbor, restaurants, etc. The room was quite big and had lockers. The bathroom was clean but the tiles had some spots in the corners. The breakfast was ok but you need to pay for it. The kitchen is outside the building. The lady in reception was very friendly and helpful.
