Location & Nearby
HI Loft Hostel sits on Bankastraeti, right on the end of the main shopping street in Reykjavik, Laugavegur. This places it central to all of the major sites of the downtown area. Hallgrimskirkja church, the Harpa Concert Hall, the National Gallery of Iceland, the Sun Voyager statue and the Parliament House are all within ten minute’s walk.
Furthermore, many of the attractions of the capital can be viewed from the beautiful rooftop terrace.
It’s location also means that a wealth of boutiques, restaurants and bars can be found right outside the front doors, and it is close to bus services, tour departure points and airport transfers.
In short, there are few better places to stay in Reykjavik for those who want easy access to all that the downtown area has to offer.
Facilities and Amenities
HI Loft Hostel’s rooms are bright and colourful, with two to four comfortable bunk beds each. Unlike many other hostels in the city, each dorm has its own private bathroom with a hairdryer. You’ll also be provided with a locker for the safekeeping of your valuables, and access to the communal kitchen.
The cafe/bar at Loft, however, is its greatest asset. There is always something going on in terms of live performance, and it is a favourite watering hole for both travellers and locals, making it a great place to meet new people. The communal area also boasts books and board games, as well as table football. Furthermore, tours can be booked from the front desk.
On top of this, HI Loft Hostel is committed to being fully accessible as well as environmentally conscious, offsetting the carbon of your stay.
