    This is a great place to stay. The room and the showers were very clean. There is a big kitchen to cook. There is even a sauna next to the shower that you can use for free. I recommand this hostel if you spend time in Akureyri.

    Very nice hostel -- clean rooms, good kitchen with a lot of pans/plates/utensils, and a nice bar area for socializing -- it can get loud at times but is pretty chill overall. The beds in the dorms have individual USB chargers (and plug outlets), which is super nice. You do have to rent linens if you don't have your own for some beds, but I think that's clearly stated on the booking page (whether or not that bed has linens). Good location in downtown Akureyri. I'd absolutely stay there again.

    Perfectly located in town, there is a bar and restaurant downstairs and all rooms upstairs. The only thing is duvet’s/blankets are not included in your room price, you have to rent them. Also the showers are downstairs past the bar. So you have to walk by everyone in the bar once you’ve showered to get back to your room. We would stay here again through, staff friendly and facilities are clean.

    Overall, I'm happy with this place; very clean, nice bar, good staff. But a big glaring issue is the lockers in the rooms aren't lockable.
