I traveled with a group of five ladies and stayed in a 6 person dormitory complete with three bunk beds and a private bathroom. We fit in our spacious room comfortably and were relieved that the hostel provided ample bed sheets and a warm comforter. Each bed was outfitted with their individual outlets to charge devices and a nightlight as... More

I stayed here with a group of friends for a long weekend. We had a 6 bed dorm room which was very comfortable and clean, and while not high end, certainly worked for us. The location of the Hostel couldn't be better, ideal for walking to all the cities sites and right in the heart of the Bars and Restaurants.... More

The staff is friendly and the location cannot be beat. There is a nice roof top bar/view of the city. I stayed in a 6-bed room with a bathroom en suite. My one complaint is that there is garbage and belongings left by previous guests that is never cleaned up. It's not cleaned up, I imagine, because in a room... More

I spent a couple of nights at the Loft Hostel before setting off on a road trip around Iceland. Loved everything about my experience: comfy private double room, excellent wi-fi, fantastic breakfast (buffet-style, at ISK1,500 / US$11.86 a steal!), great happy hour prices and an overall friendly atmosphere in the top-floor lounge where guests would gather at night to mingle...

Great venue, centrally placed. Loft hostel is friendly, clean and excellently run. It is secure, with lockers in your rooms, plus a shelf at the back of your bed, consisting of a plug and light. First time I have seen individual plugs and it was a great idea. The rooms are so warm, beds comfy and the bathrooms are very... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Reykjavik & can attribute a lot of that to a great stay at this hostel. The hostel is very modern & vibrant, with spacious rooms & dining areas. I stayed in an 8 bed dorm which was the most spacious 8 bed I've stayed in in a while! The kitchen was always clean, the... More

From the cosy little duvets and central location to the chic design and automatic lights of this zero waste eco hostel, this is a fine example of what traveller accommodation should be. Friendly staff, clean facilities and thorough waste division make this the right choice for your stay in Reykjavik in numerous ways. You can see the Hallgrimskirkja church from... More

We stayed here on our first and last night of our stay. It was very affordable, with a pretty good standard breakfast. The lounge was super busy, and the staff were quite helpful when I had to make calls or ask questions. The pro and con is how close it is to all the bars and clubs. We landed on... More

The Loft Hostel is a 4 story building with a bar located on the 4th floor. It is very clean, modern and has nice sense of humour (like motivational pictures at the stairs telling you to go up). A great plus are the "private" bathrooms and showers in each dormitory, so you don't have to run through the whole building... More

Nice customer service. We had a private room for 2 nights on the second floor. The first night there was noise of people yelling and partying in the late hours and second night noise was from a loud concert which also vibrated the room. Feel the room was over priced but the location is probaby why. I think would stay... More
