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

    We booked a two-bed (one twin, one single) with a private bath, Everything in the room and bath was fresh and clean. Plenty of outlets and a little desk and chair. The patio was hopping with guests and locals, and the vibe was great. Our only complaint is the impossibly tiny kitchen. We stayed just one night and only prepared an early breakfast there, but I can't imagine navigating the kitchen during a busy dinner hour. Tip: just eat at one of the many local cafes and restaurants.

    Amazing location and super friendly helpful staff. This hostel can do no wrong in my book. Very good eco friendly credentials. Cool cool cool. Just sort out the drains in the showers I don't like standing in three inches of water.... Thanks for suggesting the hike to hot springs from Hverageroi near Selfoss. Loved it. Jonty

    Right in the middle of anything you’d want to do in Reykjavik, really great staff. This place is great for anyone wanting to enjoy the nightlife on the weekends. You have to be willing to sleep through the highlife if you’re not participating, which our group was just fine with. We had a nice time and felt like the security was good and all things we needed were accessible.

    The hostel was in a great location and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The beds were decent and clean. The only downside was that the bathrooms were a little dirty, but nothing too bad. I felt comfortable and safe staying there and met some nice people!

    Great atmosphere, would go back! If you want a quiet sleep, the hostel is located beside a club with loud music. When we checked into our room we were given two beds in a room of 6. We checked into our beds and when we came back someone had taken our items off the bed and put their items back on the bed. The hostel staff gave us drinks, towels and a free breakfast. When we came back the next day from lunch our keys wouldn’t work, and we had to get them reset.

    Perfect location and a fun atmosphere in the evenings. Helpful, friendly staff. Nice bedding. Dorm room where I stayed had no ventilation and smelled bad. The place could have been cleaner and less expensive, but overall a good place to stay in Reykjavik.
