We stayed for one night at Akureyri backpackers at the end of May 2015, with a group of 6 in twin rooms located on the top floor. The hostel is very well located in the centre of Akureyri. We found parking easily out front, which was free on the Sunday, but the spaces quickly filled up after we arrived. The hostel is a buzzy place, with a good bar but could perhaps have the feeling of being overrun by bus groups on a busy day. Having said that, the private rooms on the top floor were very quiet, spacious, had plenty of power points and offered a good nights sleep. While there are toilets and basins on every floor, the showers are in the basement, so a bit of advanced planning is need for trips up and down the stairs ! There are also no lifts, so its a bit of work to get big sized bags up the stairs. We ended up packing what we needed into smaller bags for the nights, and left the big bags in the car, so this was no real hassle. The room price also included a free drink at the cosy bar, which was great. Overall, good value for money.
