Property Description

Loft opened in 2013 and has 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.

Located on Reykjavík's main shopping street and in 5 minutes walking distance from Hallgrímskirkja, The City Pond and Harpa Concert hall, the best of the city is just footsteps away from the hostel.

Loft boasts a rooftop terrace over the heart of Reykjavík, that gives you a bird's eye view point of the bustling streets, and on sunny days it becomes Reykjavík's top sunbathing spot, then in the winter time you can even catch a glimpse of the northern lights.

Make yourself at home in our comfortable and spacious lounge where you can pick something out of our book swap shelves, play board games and have a tasty cup of coffee. Facilities also include free WiFi and computer access, fully equipped guest kitchen, free luggage storage upon arrival and departure. We host concerts and other fun events a few times a week. Such as pub quizzes, karaoke nights, swap markets, drag shows, arts and crafts nights, yoga classes and many more. All events are free entry and welcome to all. Also, there's happy hour every day between 4PM and 7PM.

Loft is certified as fully accessible hostel and offers a wide range of 4-8 bedded dormitories and private double rooms, each equipped with a private bathroom. Linen is included in all rooms. Safety boxes are under each dorm bed, please bring a padlock or buy one in our reception.

This HI Hostel is Quality & Eco Certified, run by a non-profit organization. Our aim is to contribute towards an ethically conscious and sustainable style of travelling that increases peoples’ knowledge of their environment and cultural values in all parts of the world.

    Superb

    Hands down the best hostel bar atmophere I have ever encountered! In the evening the common area felt more like a swanky hotel lounge than a hostel. Moreover, the staff exhibited a level of customer service and awareness rarely found at hostels. Special thanks to Rodrigo in particular for making my visit to Iceland a stand out experience!

    Above average from my stay in hostels. Nothing really bad to say, nothing really stood out either that was positive though, but everything solid. Basically a good all around hostel with a lovely vibe located in the heart of downtown Reykjavík. If your room is on the busy street side then you might hear some noise while trying to go to sleep, but if you’re traveling then it’s not like it’s imperative you get your standard sleep schedule so no big deal.

    Perfect location right downtown (probably what drove the price up), but the city is so walkable even if I'd stayed somewhere else. Rooms were simple and clean, but I had a hard time getting the locker to work. One of the fridges reeked (and had really old, moldy pasta in it), so they could be cleaned out more frequently, but the other was good for keeping my food. It's a social hostel, and noise filters in from the street on weekends.

    Fabulous

    This was an okay hostel. Good: location!, if you're on the right side of the building you don't hear too much on crazy Saturday nights, lobby/lounge area is very nice. Bad/could be better: hot showers make the bathroom smell very bad, lockers under the bed are very annoying and kind of small. I would recommend it to travelers who want to be close to the city center but don't expect 10/10.
