Property Description

Loft opened in 2013 and 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.

Here at Reykjavík - Loft HI Hostel, we combine Scandi-chic and eco-credentials with a warm Icelandic welcome. Join us on the rooftop terrace for beers in summer and Northern Lights in winter. And while you're here, take part in our regular free events. We've got everything from karaoke and pub crawls to yoga and drag shows, with a spot of arts and crafts in the middle. Making use of our fully equipped kitchen is a smart way to save your cash for seeing all the island's best sights, too.

Arriving from the airport's super simple: buses are scheduled to match flight arrival times, so jump on and tell the driver where you want to go. Our hostel sits on the main shopping street so souvenirs or an inviting coffee are only a few steps away. Hallgrí­mskirkja (Reykjavi­k Cathedral) is a 5-minute walk, as is the dramatic Harpa concert hall. If you've come to Iceland for the hot springs, buy a bus transfer when you book your entrance ticket and they'll pick you up.

Rooms and Dorms
Beds and bunks in our dorms and private rooms alike come with free linen. Both room types also have en-suite bathrooms and lockers (bring your own lock or buy one from us at reception). While we're talking about security, we offer female-only dorms, and access throughout the hostel is by keycard.

Extras and activities
Chilly out? Snuggle up in our cosy common room over a board game with your mates or hunker down with a book from our exchange. If you're after something more lively, check out our on-site bar. Happy hour's from 4pm to 8pm daily, and we don't think you'll find a more globally diverse place to drink beer in all of Reykjavi­k. The bar and cafe have free Wi-Fi (as does the whole hostel), so you can update your blog or video chat with friends at home over a few warm lattes or cold local craft beers.

The hostel team is happy to give local advice on services and attractions and arrange your tours for free, including the Golden Circle, the Blue Lagoon, horseback riding, whale watching and all kinds of adventure tours. We also arrange car rentals with free pick up and all local transport. Great specials and package deals are available. We look forward to welcoming you. View House Rules

    Everything was so great! The room was wonderful and the staff was so helpful and accommodating, plus you can’t beat the location. When I return to Iceland I’ll definitely be staying here again.

    Central location. If you are a light sleeper, be aware that there’s a bar playing music just on the other side of the street (did not really bother me but could be a problem for some people) kitchen with good facilities

    This hostel is a great place to stay in Reykjavik. Staff are fantastic, really helpful and friendly. Location is ideal for exploring and roof top bar great. My dorm could have been cleaner but wasn’t too bad. Kitchen was also messy but I think that was due to a group of teenage guests rather than hostel staff. The lockers are actually boxes under the bed which don’t have a lot of room in them, so be prepared to unpack your bag to get it tucked away. If I come back I’ll definitely stay again.

    The location of the hostel was perfect! Except for the room being above a nightclub with a lot of noice during the night. However it was close to the center and the busstops. The beds were comfortable and the showers clean. It was very cold in the hallways and common area due to the door being open to the outside downstairs. I would recommend staying here but ask for a room away from the nightclub.

    Very Good

    19 Feb 2022
    It was an okay hostel. The woman who checked us in was great! But the atmosphere was a little lacking. I was there with my girlfriend so it was okay for us but I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re wanting to meet people. If you just want to keep to yourself, then it’s pretty good. I also don’t think they cleaned our room our entire stay. Maybe once. And the comforter I was assigned on my bed was dirty with this black smear.

    A nice enough hostel with friendly staff, however my 6 bed dorm was not cleaned the entirety of my stay. The bins in the room were completely full and the bathroom floor had hair all over it which was gross. The location was great except for Friday night when the nightclub next door had loud thumping music all night.

    I love staying at hostel, and I wouldn’t recommend this one. A couple pros: 1) staff was helpful, 2) location was right in the centre at a walking distance to all main sites. But that came with the biggest con: the NOISE. There are night clubs all around it and the whole street was quite chaotic at night (weekend). Also, I was in a top bunk in a corner and I couldn’t sit up without banging myself against a bim on the ceiling. Note that I’m not tall at all. To top it, the bathroom was dirty.
