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

    Absolutely wonderful, charming hostel! The common area has such a nice vibe in the mornings; soft music with a simple breakfast. In the evenings the bar is a great start to your night, with space to host large groups and events. If you use Flybus from the airport, the hostel is closest to bus stops #6 & #3. Nearby are shops, restaurants, etc. There is a club next door, be prepared for loud beats at night. The staff are kind, the space clean and secure. There is a laundromat café down the street.

    Very nice place to stay in Reykjavik. Cozy atmosphere, good vibes, nice people at the reception and overall clean place. Highly appreciated the organizational system that allow guests to recycle food, hygiene items and clothes. If you need earplugs or a charge adapter I spotted 2 big jars at the reception - small details that can turn useful and make your life easier. Definitely recommended.

    My friends and I stayed for a few nights and we absolutely loved it. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds and clean bathrooms, and the building requires a key code after business hours for security. It is very close to the best museums, restaurants, and bars- no longer than a 15 minute walk anywhere. The rooftop bar is great. There’s a four-hour happy hour with good deals every day, games, an outdoor area with heaters, and regular events like drink and draw and karaoke.

    This is one of the best places to be in Reykjavik! It was super close to everything that my sister and I wanted to do/see and nearby for pickup for excursions as well. The bar area on the top floor was a great way to meet others and also had an outdoor patio that had heat lamps and blankets for when it got cold.

    Great place. Good for the price and has a great location. Rooms were nice. Someone was in my bed when I came in and I didn’t have a pillow but it ended up fine. Easy late check in.

    Had a great time at loft hostel and met amazing people. The bathroom and toilet could have been cleaner. There was no way to open the window in my room especially during covid that's a no go.

    The staff and location were great, and the rooftop bar and atmosphere of the hostel were lovely. At least in our room (the toilet and shower are in the room) the drains desperately needed to be cleared. Both the shower and sink drained poorly, and due to the bad drains there was some sitting water that made the entire room wreak all day.

    Solid place. The bar upstairs is nice. The biggest complaint is the club next door. The music was so loud it was shaking the walls of my room. No earplugs were strong enough and it went until 3 am. If you want to party and meet people in Reykjavik then this is a great place. Not if you want to sleep.
