    Quiet and comfortable

    We had an en-suit twin room, it was warm and quiet. It was easy to park at the back of the hostel and the hostel has a well equipped kitchen and communal space. Breakfast was included, but it was provided at a bakery about a 10 min walk from the hostel. This hostel is not very central, so it is a fair walk into the city centre.

    Clean, quiet, and comfortable!

    Clean room! Linens were clean and fresh. Everything seemed quiet organized and friendly. Common baths were also clean and patrons seemed to respect one another. Nice location. We appreciated the baskets to label our food in the refrigerator. Clear check in and checkout instructions.

    excellent breakfast

    Twin room is small but clean. Shared shower is great unless you hit rush hour... Breakfast was served at a nearby cafe, and was really good.

    Very clean, organized, and a BARGAIN!

    This hotel/hostel was impeccably clean and well-organized. As usual, we look for the cheapest place around when booking through hotels.com and were not disappointed. The kitchen area was very large, clean, and well-stocked for utensils, etc. During front office hours (only 3 hours in the morning), we got recommendations, information, and discount cards to various tourist sites. Wonderful! We also ran out of phone battery to get our room entry instructions, but only had to read signage and call to get immediate info. on how to access our room. This hotel is not in the center of town although only less than 2 km away. There is also bus service. We had our own vehicle so was not problem and the cost was so much cheaper than staying directly in center of town. There is a Dominoes Pizza right behind the hotel and a grocery store across the street. I love the tradition of requesting guests take off their shoes while in the building. This is apparently true throughout our hotel stays in Iceland.

    Great stay

    A nice and clean hostel located a little outside the town. Friendly staff, more than willing to help. Overall a great stay on budget in Akureyri.

    Great place to stay in Akureyri.

    The hostel was really clean on arrival and they sent details about how to check-in and find our room in advance which was great. We had a really nice bright spacious room with comfortable twin beds. Shower and bathroom were both very clean and modern with good facilities. The host was really friendly and helpful in offering suggestions of where to go and what to do and one of the other staff was an expert on the local roads and what to see. The downtown area was only a short walk away (it's not a big town) which is a nice change after driving for hours. The area was very quiet so we got a good nights sleep.
