I stayed at Loft for eight nights in two rooms, as both a solo traveler and with a friend, and loved every minute. The rooms were spacious and each bed had a light/charging/storage nook. The lounge is inviting, guests support nice, and staff stellar. They were a wealth of knowledge and helped pan trips, including alternatives where they thought it necessary. The only improvement I'd request is a more varied breakfast... but really, everything else was so awesome that I can't complain!

Room Tip: You're in Reykjavik, runtur is happening whether you're there or not. Embrace it and make use of their complimentary ear plugs!

The Loft Hostel has a fabulous location, is brand new, has spacious rooms, friendly staff and many tours and daytrips you can book there.
The breakfast will get boring if you stay couple of days. Could use some improvement or variation.

You all are awesome! Loved the hostel, the bar, and the staff. Thanks for a great stay! However much you're paying the staff, it's not enough. These peeps do an amazing job morning, noon, and night making the Loft an incredible place to be. The rooms were cozy and clean with great blinds to block out the 24hrs of sun. The balcony is small but inviting and the 4th floor always has good music playing, a great vibe, and always interesting people. Any help I needed with tours or directions staff was uber friendly and helpful and gave great suggestions. If I find myself back in Iceland I know where I'll be staying.

Room Tip: Try to get a room not on the street. And don't forget to bring a lock.

We booked the Loft to stay in central position in Reykjavik and it was perfect for this. The hostel is new, clean and very nice with many facilities and a wonderfull terrace bar. But don't come here on friday night like us, with a room on Bankastraeti side. We thought to sleep some hours, before to take our plane soon in the morning, but the noise of night-life was terrible! Otherwise, if you want enjoy the "runtur" and sleep during the day, I think, is a good choise.

Entering the building was a bit intriguing as it unclear of "what's next". Once I arrived on the top floor for check in, I was met with warm smiles and welcome from the staff. The space was full of life and people both local and travelers hanging out on the balcony overlooking the city. The rooms were clean and very inviting. Your locker tucked under the bed (bring your own lock) and a place to charge your electronics right at your fingertips.
I had an incredible experience meeting people in a hip and upbeat location. I will definitely recommend this place to stay.
