    The hostel was amazing! It had a great atmosphere. It can get a bit loud with the bars nearby but this was expected. Staff was very attentive.

    Great Hostel, met very cool people in my dorm with whom I went partying. Location is great, extremly central - yet, I had a room right to the street and was a bit load due to a club/bar near by. Nice bar with cool activities that even locals join (which you rarely see at hostels).

    My stay at the loft was short but sweet! Couldn’t imagine a better location. Staff was super friendly. Rooms were great and clean. Shared space and bar/cafe area is trendy and fun. Would absolutely come back!

    Very nice location - basically in the middle of everything that you'd want to be around in Reykjavik. Beds are clean, as well as everything else. The bad though - shower floor and toilet floor are shared in the room, and I really didn't have the most social people in my room. They didn't care to talk and were in bed asleep by 8 or 9 pm. It felt very awkward coming in at midnight or 1am and everyone was snoring. It might have been just bad luck for me, but my stay had higher expectations.

    Super clean rooms/bathroom with comfy beds (minus the nearly nonexistent pillows). Located right in the heart of all the action in the city centre, which is great if you want to go out but can be an issue if you have to wake up early for a trip. Great patio bar upstairs, staff was fine.

    I've stayed here once before and enjoyed it. You can't get much better than its location-in a prime spot right on Laugavegur. However, when I first arrived and went to go put the sheets on my bed, there was a clump of hair on the (supposedly) clean duvet cover.

    Perfect location and great facilities, albeit a bit noisy from the surrounding streets all through a May Saturday night. Bar and breakfast a nice touch. We were a group of five, which worked out well in a shared room, but I should have read the small print about towels & room lockers beforehand.., doh ! Definitely recommend it & go back on our next trip.
