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 (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

    Great location, nice and helpful staff. Next to loud clubs so if you’re a super light sleeper maybe not for you, however I was fine with it. Would stay again.

    The room I stayed in was clean and spacious with its own large bathroom inside (six-person female). The staff helped book tours and buses, which was a big help. I was able to store my big luggage in their storage and pick it up a couple hours after check out. It was like a hotel-hostel.

    When it comes to location, Loft HI can't be beat. Minutes away from amazing restaurants, grocery stores, shops, Harpa, the water, a beautiful view of the mountains, and so much more. A complaint I had was that I wish the front desk sold ear plugs or something of the sort - there is music blasting through the hostel at all hours of the night, so definitely bring ear plugs!! The other complaint I have is that luggage storage inside the room is not sufficient. Bring a lock for luggage.

    Great place to stay right in the center of town, making it easy to explore beautiful Reykjavik! Nice big dorms with plenty of space for everyone’s luggage and the little lockers under the bed are great for valuables, just remember to bring a lock. The rooftop areas are really cool with the comfortable couches, balconies and kitchen. Great spot to stay in an expensive city!

    Pros: amazing location, great bar with breakfast offered at a low cost, generally quiet, luggage storage at the front desk, kitchen for making food Cons: the luggage storage at each bed is very small and minimal, overall pretty mediocre, one bathroom per dorm

    The hostel has the best possible location in Reykjavík and it even has an awesome rooftop bar with great beer and a great view. Also you can check in whenever with a pass codes which is just perfect. The hostel does have a few week points. The staff is quite confused and it seems you cannot rent towels and they have no locks for the bed rollers for storing valuables. The bed rollers are very small, so if you want to secure your belongings remember your own lock from at home (small locks).
