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.

Location
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 (Reykjavík 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 from hostel reception.

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 Reykjavík. The bar and café 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 warming lattes.

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 available. We look forward to welcoming you. View House Rules

    This was my first time staying in a hostel, and I couldn’t imagine a better experience overall. From the friendly staff who are happy to assist any way possible to the cleanliness and safety; HI Hostel does an amazing job on all fronts. A block away from the bus stop and right in the center of downtown Reykjavík, I would recommend this to anyone looking to have an unforgettable Icelandic experience. Thank you Hi Hostel!

    The hostel is well maintained and very central, the beds are comfortable. My only complaint is that I was given a top bunk. I assumed they were booked out and this was the only option available but the lower bunk under me vacant for my entire stay. Who was to climb up and down a metal ladder, at least give people the option when possible. Also the safety bars on the top bunk were not high enough. The location is great but the downside is the street noise from partyers that goes on until about 4a

    The Hostel’s location is perfect! Staff is very helpful & overall its a very clean hostel ( just the bathroom floors could be a little better). If you are looking for a place to rest, I wouldn’t recommend it because since it’s very centric, you’ll hear the street noises from bars / people up until 3 - 4am.

    Although not the hostels fault the extremely loud night club right below it is a sleep deal breaker. We all slept a so terribly which unfortunately didn’t set us up well for our action packed Iceland adventures the following days - even headphones couldn’t drown out the bass. This aside the hostel and facilities were some of the best I’ve ever stayed in but unfortunately the lack of sleep was a big factor for us.
