Reykjavik Downtown Hostel

Great place! The guy I met at the start and when I left was very helpful, and Rachel was also very helpful. Wish the coffee was free as I had run out of IK. I'll be back!

Loft Hostel is a nice place to stay. Althougt you need extra earplugs if your room is situated on the streetside.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The Downtown Hostel is fantastic. The people are friendly - its ridiculously affordable at the moment, the free wifi is awesome - the coffee is excellent. The only minor irritation was no individual bed lights or power outlets next to the beds - but for such a good price and location who really cares? I walked EVERYWHERE because its all in such close proximity to the hostel.
