We ended up getting upgraded to a great room with a bathroom. The woman at the desk was so incredibly friendly and other than some kids in the hallway being very loud for over an hour it was a great stay.

Although I understand the reasoning I didn't like having to take boots off in the entrance every time I came in - would prefer floors without carpets to avoid this.
I moved from a very noisy hostel in downtown Akureyri to this lovely quiet hostel about a 10 minute walk away. Single room was perfect, a lovely warm haven.

No towels. It's strange how everywhere in Iceland they charge you for the towels or bed sheets. Very unusual for Europe in general.
Very nice staff. They helped us out with an easy way to go to whale watching in Husavik, offered a disscount and booked us directly. Very good balance between price and quality of services. Fully equiped kitchen and available for guests. Free wi-fi comparable to other places where they charge you for the internet. Free parking. Actually this was my favourite accomodation while I traveled across the island.

I wish I had more time in Akureyri. The lady who checked me in was fun, and had a lot to point out to see while in town. The hostel was great. Very clean, close to city center, and perfect wifi connection. I can't wait to come back in the summer !!

I wish there had been more than one bathroom and shower on each level, and that the downstairs kitchen had been open, but those complaints were definitely not enough to stop me from staying here again.
The woman who checked us in was so friendly and fun, and really made us feel welcome. The room itself was very comfortable, and the hostel was very clean. The kitchen and hangout area were cool as well.

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.
Wifi works just fine. Staff is helpeful.

The kitchen is closed after 23p.m until the morning.
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 stairs are big of steep for me and the outside stairs need to be repaired (kind of dangerous).
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... :)

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.
