Wifi works just fine. Staff is helpeful.
Had to take a taxi from the airport, as there was no public transportation and it was kind of far away. Thought there was a shortage of showers.
Good place to stay for one night. Very inexpensive.
Only very few bathrooms in the base floor.
Clean rooms and facilities, equiped kitchen available for guests; close to the Bonus supermarket
friendly and helpful staff. clean and comfort. big 4 bed room. good location if you have a car. near to supermarket and center.
Nice hostel, with fully equipped kitchen and plenty of bathrooms. The people at the reception were very friendly and helpful. Bonus supermarket at walking distance.
we could see the aurora there! And it's near a Domino's Pizza!
Linen was not included in the price, :(
Everything is perfect; and Elfa and others are the best: very kind, attentive and communicative. Hostel is very cozy and quiet. Rooms, kitchen and bathroom (even in the coridor) are clean and nice. There is also a yard with wifi and places to seat. We were able to leave our luggage at the safety place before check-in and check-out. It is the best hostel in Akureyri for families and young couples too.
The kitchen is closed after 23p.m until the morning.
Cleanliness, value for money
Nothing to dislike
1. Famous "Bonus" supermarket is cross the street! :) 2. Very clean and safe (I saw someone checking the doors at 3am!) 3. Must try the Greifinn restaurant (recommed by HI with 15% off) , wonderful dishes & pizza... :)
The stairs are big of steep for me and the outside stairs need to be repaired (kind of dangerous).
Location was not near the city centre, but still a manageable walk. Gas station and grocery right across the street. This was my first time staying at a hostel as I was always leary. This place was excellent! Extremely well run, organized, safe and very clean. Lots of room throughout the facility to relax, read etc.
everything. We were greatly surprised by the facilities available onsite. Great hostel!
Our reservation had been screwed up a little, but with some chatting with the lady behind the desk, we were able to resolve the issue. The kitchen was very convenient and well-stocked, and it's just a block or so away from a grocery store. We had a car, so it was an easy drive to "downtown" Akureyri.
The showers are a little weird - you have to keep pushing a button, which only gives you about 10 seconds of water (which at first is cold, then scorching, then the perfect temperature - for 5 seconds or so).
Comfortable room, facility and management. Rooms are very clean.
Our floor Shared Bathroom had water stagnation. I used the one in the second floor - they are very neat.
Jodi, the manager, was so friendly and helpful
The cups in the kitchen were a little small!!
The staff is helpful
the room is small people is still noisy after midnight
Very cozy place, the staff was very kind. There's everything you need to cook anything in the kitchen. And It's a great place to find some new friends (big lounge room) :) My special thanx to Elva, who was so helpful and kind to me.
Nothing to mention.
Nice staff thank you
The location is ok.
The sheets were really, really dirty. White stains everywhere. And there is only one shower and one toilet for an entire floor, which I found a bit minimal. Also, the booking said I could check in until 21.30, but there was no one to check me in at 19.05 and I had to wait quite long (pretty annoying after a long drive).
Next to Bonus Store Nice open kichen
This place is greate! Clean, comfortabe and cheap!
