Love this hostel, not only it is a hostel, but it also have a restaurant downstairs with good food with good value. The room is big enough for 6 ppl. Bathrooms are plenty. Showers are plenty, although you have to downstairs. Staffs are friendly. Walkable to most of the places in the city. Parking can be a bit hard during rush hours. Overall, great place, I really enjoyed it.

I highly recommend Akureyri Backpackers mostly due to the awesome in-hostel bar and communal lounge areas, the reliable security with codes required to access after-hours and the friendliness of the staff. I'm not sure what a good location is in Akureyri but it was a 2 minute walk from the beautiful church, a 5 minute walk from the water, and a 2 minute walk from the camera store which was very handy for me :)

Had a great one night stay here. Met some really cool people. Beds were super clean and hostel was right in the city centre. Didn't use the shower but the toilet was clean!

Cool hostel with a good vibe, nice bar/chilling area. Good showers - strong enough to wash long hair! - although several floors below the rooms. Good size kitchen fully equipped to cook meals. No tea or milk offered though, which I have found is usually provided in other hostels. Only very small lockers in the room (won't fit your backpack) but it is Iceland so is extremely safe - never felt worried about leaving things out.

This place is so cool! They do charge for a comforter so if you don't have a sleeping bag, be advised. But the place is clean and downstairs is a bar with awesome happy hour prices!! Really great atmosphere

The location is perfect and the bar had a great atmosphere even though it closes pretty early. The only thing I didn't like was walking through the bar to get to the shower.

Awesome location and staff. Nice bar on ground floor. Room was nice and clean with charging point and light with every bed. The locker was quite small though. Stayed only a night so didn't use any facilities.

Great place. Seems to be the center of town all day, among guests and locals alike. Good facilities, great restaurant/bar. Beds are a bit on the squeaky side, but no real complaints.

Excellent location for walking places. Google maps was a bit confusing; park in the city lot on the street below, if driving. Very secure dorms with key fobs for rooms. FAST wifi! Showers were awesome - private stall doors with lots of (hot and not timed!) water pressure. Also, very clean. Cons: I stayed here on a Saturday night, not thinking about it. Downstairs and in the street was very loud with drunks most of the night (not the hostel's fault, though).
