    Absolutely great hostel! One of the best I've stayed at in Europe. Facilities are very nice looking, functional and cozy. Downstairs is always crowded and has a great atmosphere. Only a few things could be better; #1 The gap between bunk beds is quite small, so it's easy to hit your head on the top bed; #2 The washing machine and dryer are very expensive (900IKR for washing + 900IKR for drying). Thank you so much for the great stay! :)

    I had an awesome stay at BP. There’s even a sauna in the showers (price included with your stay).

    Really wonderful spot for a stay in Akureyri. Super accessible, very safe, and great amenities. There were multiple floors of rooms with shared bathrooms, a good sized kitchen, and a restaurant and bar all within. The showers are on the very bottom floor, which can be a bit tough if you’re sleeping on the 4th floor, but otherwise very well done!

    Was a great social hostel, doesn’t have a communal area not in the bar if you want to mingle with people away from the people drinking. But I didn’t mind that. Hated that you have to walk basically past the bar to shower... Biggest down fall! So if your on the top level you have to walk all the way down to shower and back up past everyone drinking and eating

    Very good impression by the aesthetics of the lobby. The worm water is weird, it has an oily touch, possibly because it's from a geothermal spring. We were worried whether we could drink the water from the kitchen tap. We decided against it 🙂

    Rooms are very small and the lockers do not fit bags. Showers are in the basement and not near bedrooms. It means you need to walk through the bar to get to and from it. Kitchen of fine but minimal room to eat and there's signs telling people to not bring their food into the bar. Staff are amazing and friendly and new where to park our car. Location is amazing.

    No sheets or bedding in bunk beds. Gotta bring your own (or rent some). Weirdest thing ever. It's a remarkably quiet hostel for being right on top of their own bar.
