    Due to very bad weather, the roads were blocked and therefore we had to stay another night in Akureyri unplanned. In hostel offered us the same room without any problem. Everything was great! Very nice and tidy hostel, with a big shared kitchen....

    The room had huge number of electricity plugs for all our devices. All hotel was in carpets so very quiet. Shower and wc were near the room and it had a nice, well equiped kitchen upstairs. Beds were comfortable. Easy to check-in.
