I recently stayed at the Loft Hostel for two nights, and I am truly impressed by this impeccable hostel! It is brand new, so everything looks fresh and clean, but I am not under the impression that this will fade soon.
The rooms are nice, with comfortable beds including pillows and blankets, and they are ensuite, too, so you do not have to stumble out at night to find a toilet - and everything is just superbly clean. The lounge and cafe area with the patio overlooking Reykjavik is inviting and has a good vibe. Staff is friendly, helpful, and always willing to give a little extra just to make your stay more comfortable. Usually more comfortable in my own room, I could have easily stayed here for a longer period.
The location is ridiculously central, so you are right in the center of Reykjavik (so yes, you might hear outside noise on weekend nights).
Do I have anything I did not like? Well, I, too, think the breakfast could add a little variety, and I would have loved to be able to open a window in my room - but then these are just minor things and really do not influence my overall judgement.More
