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

    Can't recommend Loft Hostel enough! The location is smack in the middle of the city centre which is amazing and so convenient with all the shops and restaurants around. The Hostel itself was super clean, tidy and super trendy. The staff were so friendly and helpful. I don't have one thing to complain about and I am pretty picky, so I highly recommend staying here for your trip to Reykjavik!

    The best hostel I've ever stayed in! Perfect location near bus stop pick ups for tours and central Reykjavik. Very social, friendly, posh atmosphere. Great breakfast and bar. Beautiful facilities and very nice, comfortable rooms. Seemed very secure and safe, staff was very professional, friendly, and accommodating. 10/10

    Very clean - both dorm and bathroom. High standard hostel that seems fairly new or just renovated. Good beds in a spacious dorm, where they easily could have crammed a few more beds in (but I’m glad they hadn’t). I loved that locals seemed to be hanging out in the bar. And very convenient located! A great option if you want to stay at a central spot in Reykjavík.

    I had a fantastic stay at Loft HI that could have been terrible. My sleep the first night was among the worst due to some "interesting" guests. I brought up the concerns to the Hostel staff the next morning and both Johanna and Robin were incredible and ensuring the rest of my stay was wonderful. I think the most important factor in a Hostel is the quality of the people working there. In their staff, you can find compassionate and thoughtful. Everything else (location, amenities) is wonderful!

    I loved my one-week stay at Loft! Met a lot of great people to make plans with, the staff was very friendly and nothing to complain about the cleanliness either. I was a bit worried about the level of noise due to the bars close by, but only the end of the week was a bit louder + slept very well anyway with my ear plugs on when not joining the party. The location was central and close to the bus stops where you could be picked up for bus tours. The only thing lacking was lockers of decent size.

    Great hostel, room was very spacious and clean, breakfast was delicious and great value (considering how expensive things are in Reykjavik). My only comment is it would have been nice to have proper lockers in the room, other than that everything was perfect.

    Excellent location with easy access to all the sights of Reykjavík. Pleasant, helpful staff who willingly shared their knowledge of the city. Clean room with facilities as stated on the hostel website. Highly recommended as a lower budget option for travellers of all ages staying in Reykjavik.
