Loft is a fun new hostel in downtown Reykjavík. Located on Reykjavík’s main shopping street and within 5 minutes walking distance from Hallgrímskirkja, the City Pond and Harpa Concert Hall, it literally has the best of the city on its doorstep. Loft also boasts one of the finest views in town, with its large top floor balcony café overlooking the city centre – a great spot to people watch or catch a glimpse of the northern lights in winter.

Make yourself at home in our cozy lounge; make new friends at the bar or surf the web using our free Wi-Fi. Facilities include free computer access, fully equipped guest kitchen, book exchange, free luggage storage during stay (including arrival and departure day). Loft café and bar offers top quality coffee and wine and beer from local breweries, as well as some sweet and savoury treats, and our mostly organic breakfast is a great start to the day. We host regular movie nights, music events, foosball tournaments and other social events.

Loft offers a wide range of 4-8 person dorms and double rooms, all with private bathroom. Linen is included in all rooms. Small lockers for valuables are available for free in dormitories. Female only dorms and single rooms are available upon request.

We are there to help you out with anything you need; give you the local scoop on bars, restaurants, music and more. We also arrange your excursions for free; bike and car rentals and all local transport. Great specials and package deals available.

Our aim is to contribute towards a style of travelling that increases people's knowledge of their environment, concern for nature and respect for the cultural values of cities and towns in all parts of the world.

We look forward to welcoming you.

What travellers think...

Green rating



The 2-bedded room was excellent. In the dormitory, the lights in the toilets/bathroom were very un-convenient because they stayed switched on for a long time. During the night, when people came in whereas other were asleep, the room got alighted because of doors opened.Maybe a curtain between the room entrance and beds could help? Other idea: a small table in the bathroom would be very convenient to put one's clothes during shower. The bar + kitchen and dining room are excellent.
