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

    Really great first time experience. Felt safe and clean the whole time and everyone was extremely friendly. Location is amazing especially if you’re trying to go out one night on the week and be close to restaurant and bar scene.

    Absolutely fantastic place to stay in Reykjavik, could not recommend enough. Amazing location 5 minute walk from the downtown area, located on a street with bars so our street-facing room did get a fair amount of party noise but just bring earplugs & you’ll be fine. Everything was really clean & the loft upstairs was always fun, filled with locals & travelers. Comfy beds, amazing staff who helped us with recommendations on where to go & were so friendly. I actually left my rain jacket & pants hanging on a h

    this was my first stay in a hostel and my first time traveling alone and loft was awesome. the kitchen and fridge access were a lifesaver. every person i met there (staff and other people staying there) were insanely nice and i felt very safe in the area and the building security measures (codes for entry doors into rooms and halls). literally the only downside was not having laundry facilities for personal use. incredible experience though i loved it a lot!!

    Amazing location. Great bar on roof. I also appreciated the lock system for getting in. Codes for each floor and to get into building. Very safe. Would definitely recommend Biggest downside, no lockers in rooms. And internet service in my room (though I heard other travelers room were better) was non existent for most of my stay.

    The access code is the same for the floor and the room for everyone on the same floor, which i think the two should be separated for security purposes.

    Staff was great, room was great, biggest problem was that my room overlooked a busy street and the hostel is between two clubs. Not sure I could recommend in all good conscience, given how noisy the street is. Other than that though, facilities were as advertised, staff was great and was the common area!

    The hostel has an excellent location and only a block from bus stop 6. The common area is nice. But the bunk beds are uncomfortable and squeak when anyone moves. The lockers cannot fit any bag. You must remove your valuables from your bag to lock them. The curtain in my room did not completely cover the window and street light shone into the room at night. The bathrooms are ensuite so there is no ventilation and it is noisy in the room when people are getting ready. I did not sleep well.

    Great for solo travellers! Really great location in the centre of Reykjavik and staff were very friendly and helpful! Tour desk was excellent for booking and arranging activities! Kitchen was helpful but cramped and rooms / en-suite could’ve done with a bit of a clean (it was also a 7 bed rather than a 6 bed dorm as advertised). Noise from the bar opposite was pretty horrendous and shook the windows so I’d suggest bringing earplugs! Overall okay, good base if you’re doing activities all day.
