Liked: Nice and clean hostel with a very good location direkt in the city center. On the base floor is a bar with good local beer and tasty food.

Disliked: Only thing i missed is a quiet room or corner, were you can stay a little, read or plan your next daytrip. There is a table in front of the kitchen, but there is not that much place and it is quite open to the bar.

Liked: Friendly atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, friendly guests. Perfect location right in the middle of everything. We miss Your tap water, which we think was the best throughout Iceland - and Norway....!

Disliked: I have no dislikes regarding the property at all. But guests should be aware about partynoise during the weekends due to the hostel's location by the main street. I read about LOUD tourists prior to Our departure to Iceland, but what we experienced, is that when the tourists go to bed, the Young locals take over the scene: driving through the main street With twisted loudspeakers.

Liked: Room was good size and very clean with toilet facilities nearby. Breakfast was good value for money. Hostel is situated in an excellent location and staff were friendly and helpful

Disliked: Showers were in the basement and this is a long way if you are located in a room on the fourth floor! Kitchen was basic with little workspace

Liked: It was centrally located, right in the center of town. It had a nice kitchen. It was clean and it had a sauna.

Disliked: The bar. I'm not a bar person. Also, the showers were two floors down, below the bar.

Liked: This is pretty much the best hostel I've stayed in. The showers and sauna were great and it strikes a nice balance between having a lively bar and providing quieter spots to hide away with a book and a beer or cup of tea.

Disliked: Wasn't aware of the bedding policy so make sure you bring a sleeping bag. Also tea or coffee might have been nice to have in the kitchen for guests.

Liked: This is one of my favourite hostels. Everything about it is awesome. This is my second stay here both times over Christmas so it is quite empty, I guess in the summer with loads of people, the kitchen might be a bit small but akureyri has so many awesome places to eat at! Plus the pub in the hostel serves awesome food

Disliked: Nada
