Welcome to our hostel

Loft is a fun 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.

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

Loft hostel 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.

The service was fantastic! We arrived around 6am and our room was cleaned and ready by 10am for a quick nap.

I travelled to Loft Hostel and stayed in a private, 5 bed room with 5 girls. We loved the location of the hostel and didn't find it to be loud at all! The room was tight for 5 people, but exactly what should be expected. We enjoyed that each bed had a charging outlet. We got the chance to enjoy an evening drink and brunch on the upper level -- such a great amenity. The outdoor roof space was a hit with our group! We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return! Thx for the memories, ICELAND!

Great in holding bags. Great lounge. Nice staff. They are kitty corner to a bar that will stay up and be noisy until 4-5AM so be aware that you're sleep will be bothered. They were responsive online about my questions and I used them to book all my tours. Very efficient at helping you get things processed! It is walking distance to everything!

The location is the best! I'd suggest providing a wider variety of breakfast items, especially warm food.
