    I was a bit late to arrive at the hostel, but the guy at the counter was nice enough to wait for me. He showed me how the controls on the pods work. The pods are really clean and the blankets and covers ready when I arrived, I'm a 5'5" guy and the space in the small pod was very comfortable for me. All the spaces are extremely clean in fact, this has got to be the cleanest hostel I've stayed in so far. What's more – breakfast is included in the price and it's awesome!

    You have to walk through a store area to find the hostel. Cute sitting area, big dining area, big kitchen, multiple bathrooms together, and had a lounge/ game room with a pool table. The lady helped show how to use everything in the pod. The dryer was broken and the sink had to be on for at least 5 minutes to get cold. Also there was no free parking, but my stay was on the weekend when street parking is free so I got lucky.

    Great hostel experience which I absolutely recommend you to try when staying in Akureyri. The price might first seem quite high but is definitely worth the money because of the super-spacy sleeping capsules. Since there is a large breakfast buffet included, in fact the stay is (compared to the Islandic prices) not really expensive. The staff is very friendly and helps you with every issue. A lot of modern bathrooms and excellent facilities, although the laundry price is a bit high.

    No lockers to keep your bigger bags during the stay. The pods were fun. Breakfast was nice. No real atmosphere in the hostel.
