Welcome to our hostel

Located on Reykjavík's main shopping street and in 5 minutes walking distance from Hallgrímskirkja, The City Pond and Harpa Concert hall, the best of the city is just footsteps away from the hostel.

Loft boasts a rooftop terrace over the heart of Reykjavík, that gives you a bird's eye view point of the bustling streets, and on sunny days it becomes Reykjavík's top sunbathing spot, then in the winter time you can even catch a glimpse of the northern lights.

Make yourself at home in our comfortable and spacious lounge where you can pick something out of our book swap shelves, play board games and have a tasty cup of coffee. Facilities also include free WiFi and computer access, fully equipped guest kitchen, free luggage storage upon arrival and departure. We host concerts and other fun events a few times a week. Such as pub quizzes, karaoke nights, swap markets, drag shows, arts and crafts nights, yoga classes and many more. All events are free entry and welcome to all. Also, there's happy hour every day between 4PM and 7PM.

Loft is certified as fully accessible hostel and offers a wide range of 4-8 bedded dormitories and private double rooms, each equipped with a private bathroom. Linen is included in all rooms. Safety boxes are under each dorm bed, please bring a padlock or buy one in our reception.

This HI Hostel is Quality & Eco Certified, run by a non-profit organization. Our aim is to contribute towards an ethically conscious and sustainable style of travelling that increases peoples’ knowledge of their environment and cultural values in all parts of the world.

Only one of the lockers in my room worked properly. The others had either come off their sliders and weren’t secure because it was fairly easy to wriggle them open, or the lock didn’t line up with the slit in the bed so wouldn’t close at all

Trop peu d'ambiance festive pour un samedi soir... devrait organiser des jeux, un pub crawl, etc.

Fantastic hostel, stayed in a dorm with my family and 2 year old son. He seemed to be the only child there but everyone was very accommodating and friendly - he loved the toy trainset in the lounge area! You couldn’t get more central but it was a bit noisy in the rooms on the high street on Friday evening till the pubs shut.

Hi Alexandra. Great having you as our guests and we hope to see you again soon. Loft is indeed central and can get noisy late on weekends specially cause of the location. Only part of our rooms are facing the street thought. Our Venue & Bar on the top floor stops serving at 23 every night and closes before midnigth.
