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

    first time staying in dorm-style hostel room and was an extremely positive experience! I met many wonderful people, the room was cozy and the bar area has really great vibes! if you rent a car, parking is easy to find nearby and the breakfast was great! Highly recommend.

    The location is excelent! very close to everything you must do in Reykjavik. The staff is awesome, they will give you advices and sugestions if you ask, and they are very friendly. The breakfast was super worth it with a chep price for Icelandic standards. The room was very clean and confortable and even though I was in a mixed dorm, I, as a woman, felt safe all the time.

    Great location in the city, but it does get noisy in the streets at night outside the hostel. Good security. Bar on fourth floor.

    Excellent location. I stayed in a female only dorm, was pleased with amenities (hooks in the bathroom, shelf near sink, plugs at each bunk). Bed was comfortable and sheets fitted. Bar staff a little rude when I asked to purchase water- but at least the location of the bar was far enough away from the room I stayed in that noise was not a problem.

    Overall a good stay and would go back again. The staff were beyond friendly, approachable and beyond helpful! I stayed in the all female dorm and was disappointed by my locker security. It was only big enough to fit a L purse so I wasn’t able to lock up my backpack like I would have wished!

    Fantastic location. Very clean and safe. A wonderful atmosphere with events hosted on certain nights. Very comfortable beds and shower. I do have one nit to pick--I was charged 2,700 ISK for a poor, tiny lock and cheap converter. This is preposterous. Even in Iceland, you can buy both for 1,000 ISK. Doing such a significant markup is a disservice to your customers--the point is not to gouge them for every cent, it's to provide convenience. Charge 1,500 ISK. Left a bad taste.

    Great place to stay in the heart of Reykjavik and really close to all the little cafes, restaurants, shops and bars! Plenty to do at night around the area and you get a really cool feel for Reykjavik. Plenty of beautiful restaurants nearby. Rooms are clean and nice enough and would recommend anyone to stay if staying in reykjavik.

    Many of the lockers in the room didn't work. Location is stellar, but there is no one at the hostel. Would not recommend to solo travelers looking to meet others.
