    This is by far the best Hostel I've ever stayed at. If you are going to stay in a Hostel in Reykjavik, stay here. After a bad experience at a different Hostel, Sofie at the front desk was so amazing that I almost cried. She was so fantastic and helpful. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and nice. The location absolutely cannot be beat! It is so close to everything from bars, to shopping etc. This place exceeded my expectations by far.

    Lockers in rooms would be a good addition but an otherwise fantastic hostel.

    This hostel is undoubtedly good! The location is excellent, just 5 minutes walk from bus stop 6. Also, there are coffee shops, restaurants and souvenirs shops nearby, technically you can get all you need without going too far. I like it the most is that there are a power socket and a little storage on every bunk bed. So I can change my phone on bed. Will definitely come back if I visit Reykjavík again!

    Great location, right on a Main Street with lost of shops and places to eat. Loft is located right by bus stop 6 where you can get picked up for all of your day trips. Check-in and check-out was super easy. Would definitely recommend.

    I would NOT stay here!! 1. I got BED BUGS from this hostel. When I told them about it, they did nothing! 2. Our shower head was broken. 3. I waited at the front desk for 15 minutes (they obviously noticed me but didn’t say anything) to check in while the workers were having a meeting in the lobby. 4. Stayed on the 3rd floor and could hear people until they closed the lobby. 5. Went to the bar to try and get a drink and it was so packed I couldn’t get one. The good thing is the location!
