Swanky hostel with luxe-comfy rooms and a fantastic lounge/bar and patio area. The downside was disproportionately more Americans and Brits, compared to another hostel I stayed at that was much more diverse and locally bent. Loud music from bars and street noise overnight is likely.

Loft Hostel is the cleanest hostel I've stayed in. The 8 bed dorm come equipped with their own bathroom and each bed has easy access to power outlets. The staff were friendly and professional, the other guests were also friendly and socialable. The upstairs bar area has a great ambiance; at times it was hard to leave to explore the... More

Loft Iceland is an incredible hostel and I will definitely be back! It had everything you love from a hostel- affordability for travelers, a fun bar, and lots of support planning activities, but it didn't stop there. The rooms are very clean and attended to daily. There are terrific bathrooms with showers in the room, in addition to having them... More

I love this hostel! I stayed twice during a holiday, once when I first arrived in Iceland, then when I got back to Iceland for my flight home. I booked the 6 bed female dorm and loved it! The beds are comfortable and have lots of space. I have stayed at other hostels and the bunk beds are so low... More

I stayed here for 5 days and 4 nights and had a great time. Place was clean, very accommodating, plus the front desk will help call businesses for you if you need help with finding places or making arrangements for tours. The front desk was very helpful in answering questions, especially Luke. He's awesome. I would gladly recommend this place... More

When originally booking my trip to Iceland, I was planning to just book at the cheapest hotel I could find, regardless of distance from the city center. Upon the advice of a friend, I instead ended up booking at Loft, as it was still reasonably priced and as I would find out, the location could not be better. Set in... More

Clean, nice location, accommodating staff, but noisy. If the outside street noise doesn't keep you awake, the parties and music in the upstairs lounge will. Stayed there for a week, but wouldn't stay there again.

My first hostel experience was lovely. I was only at loft for 2 nights (one at the beginning and one at the end of my trip) but it was great. Clean, good atmosphere, friendly staff. I would definitely stay here again.

The kitchen is great, and the mess room has a great atmosphere, the top floor also becomes a pub during some days of the week wich is very nice because has good live music and quite... More

After spending 7 days around Iceland, we settled for 3 nights at the Loft Hostel, and it was perfect, at first a was a little confused, because is in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th floor of a building, and the reception is on the 4th floor, but is a nice hip hostel just in the center of Reykjavik, you have restaurants,...
