Property Description

Loft opened in 2013 and has already made a huge impression. This highly rated hostel was voted The Best HI-Hostel in the world in the year of 2014 and then the Best Hostel in Iceland at the 2015 Hoscars.

Located on Reykjavík's main shopping street and in 5 minutes walking distance from Hallgrímskirkja, The City Pond and Harpa Concert hall, the best of the city is just footsteps away from the hostel.

Loft boasts a rooftop terrace over the heart of Reykjavík, that gives you a bird's eye view point of the bustling streets, and on sunny days it becomes Reykjavík's top sunbathing spot, then in the winter time you can even catch a glimpse of the northern lights.

Make yourself at home in our comfortable and spacious lounge where you can pick something out of our book swap shelves, play board games and have a tasty cup of coffee. Facilities also include free WiFi and computer access, fully equipped guest kitchen, free luggage storage upon arrival and departure. We host concerts and other fun events a few times a week. Such as pub quizzes, karaoke nights, swap markets, drag shows, arts and crafts nights, yoga classes and many more. All events are free entry and welcome to all. Also, there's happy hour every day between 4PM and 7PM.

Loft is certified as fully accessible hostel and offers a wide range of 4-8 bedded dormitories and private double rooms, each equipped with a private bathroom. Linen is included in all rooms. Safety boxes are under each dorm bed, please bring a padlock or buy one in our reception.

This HI Hostel is Quality & Eco Certified, run by a non-profit organization. Our aim is to contribute towards an ethically conscious and sustainable style of travelling that increases peoples’ knowledge of their environment and cultural values in all parts of the world.

Latest Review

" We loved loft! My friend and I had an overnight layover in Iceland, and Loft was the perfect choice. It was right in the middle of the cutest part of town. The staff and guests were all so friendly. They have good events. The rooms and bathrooms were super clean. Absolutely recommend. One piece of advice: if you’re traveling to Reykjavík from the Keflavík airport, TAKE THE SHUTTLE!!! The cab was nearly $200 USD. Shuttle is $25 USD. The bus stop is about a 15 min walk from the hostel. "
