Not in the centre
Clean and funcional
The staffs are very nice, even provided useful traveling informations, the hostel is very tidy and clean, kitchens are big.
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 !!
- The kitchen is more than perfect. - The whole building is very clean - Nice staff
Comfortable beds, wifi working, free parking( I was by car ) and the staff ( Elva, sorry if I write wrong) very helpful, friendly and gentil. I recommend .
Location Cleanliness Staff Spacious room
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.
Only very few bathrooms in the base floor.
Good place to stay for one night. Very inexpensive.
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.
Linen was not included in the price, :(
we could see the aurora there! And it's near a Domino's Pizza!
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.
Nothing to dislike
Cleanliness, value for money
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.
everything. We were greatly surprised by the facilities available onsite. Great hostel!
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).
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.
Our floor Shared Bathroom had water stagnation. I used the one in the second floor - they are very neat.
Comfortable room, facility and management. Rooms are very clean.
The cups in the kitchen were a little small!!
Jodi, the manager, was so friendly and helpful
