Loft HI Hostel
Great location, room, staff and atmosphere.
The loft hostel is great, it is expensive for a hostel but the location, facilities and staff are great! the staff even helped me catch my flight when I missed my bus due to partying!! Rooms are very clean and tidy and the ensuite bathroom is a real bonus! Nice atmosphere too. can't rate the bed as never actually slept in it!

Loud party hostel in downtown Reykjavik
Surprised they ask you to pay 4usd for a towel and then you have to make your own bed. The bed was very small and uncomfortable and room facing the street. A concert was going on until very late and I could hardly get any rest.

My First Hostel Experience
Iceland is expensive, so I decided the only way I could save some pennies was to plump for a hostel. I'm not a primadonna, I just like to have my own space. I did my research and The Loft came up top! The room was clean, the other roomies were mostly considerate, the bathroom and communal kitchen were clean and the beds were super comfy. The hostel was central was a cute bar and terrace at the top and many foodie/coffee places like literally across the road. Its all very convenient! I'd most definitely come back and stay again - Thank you!
