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 of the bustling streets. On sunny days it becomes Reykjavík's top sunbathing spot and in the wintertime, you can even catch a glimpse of the northern lights.

Make yourself at home in our comfortable 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, 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 8PM.

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 traveling that increases peoples’ knowledge of their environment and cultural values in all parts of the world.

Great place. It does get loud on the weekends outside, but being right in the downtown area is worth it.
