It really depends on the guests at the hostel that makes the hostel a pleasant or horrible experience. There was a group of really young obnoxious Americans staying here and they were a disturbance to many people staying here. They were noisy and inconsiderate of other guests. Yelling, screaming, and running around like brats at late hours. There were also wonderful guests that were helpful and good people, that you could hangout with. Reception was flexible depending on your situation.

Great hostel in the heart of Akureyri. My friends and I only stayed here one night but the rooms were spacious and comfortable, the showers were pretty clean, and the overall atmosphere was fantastic. I'd definitely stay here again.

The overall experience I had was outstanding, they have a nice kitchen, lounge area, and showering facilities. The only thing is you must pay for breakfast and also your linens... and the reception desk can sometimes be closed for no reason at all which makes it difficult to ask questions, rent bedding, etc. Most of the staff is friendly :)

Definitely love the sauna but do not like the fact that the shower area for male and female is together and each cubicle is covered with only shower curtains. Stayed in the 8-bed dormitory and I didn't had any good sleep at all. The bunk beds have the creaky sound and it creaks loudly with every single movement; and this happens every single night. Kitchen is well equipped and I like the free food concept where travelers can leave their food behind for the next one!

The bar was a great spot to relax and the drinks were reasonably priced during happy hour. Lots of locks on doors but it's a shame the lockers don't accept regular padlocks. Great spot.

We were going to arrive late and called to tell the staff. They informed us how to get in the building and were to find out information. Everything went smoothly. You can park right outside the hostel for free after certain hours. There are locks you need to use your token to get into for each floor and each room. The showers in the basement were clean and the shower pressure was good. There is breakfast in the morning and a nice lounge for you to hang out in.

The staff is helpful. Hostel is really clean. Well-equipped kitchen and centralized location in the city. The only downside of this hostel is the bathroom. It's located at the basement so you have to bring your stuff with you, walked past the reception to get there. There's hot shower and dryers for you to use.
