    “Excellent hostel“

    Stayed in private room with husband and two friends. Toilets very clean and on every floor. Shower in basement but that wasn't an issue for us at all. Very quiet. Had a great meal in the lobby. Unimpressed with breakfast but there are plenty of options on the street.

    Located in the old part of Akureyi in a beautiful four story building is the Akureyri Backpackers. I've stayed at hostels in the past and have come to enjoy their community spirit and liveliness, and this one was no exception. The restaurant and bar on the main floor, the central gathering area, is always abustle with people from all over world, maybe you'll find your next travel companion, or friend to sip a pint with, and share stories.

     Located in the town centre. the place is nice and clean. good to be based in Akureyri. the downside is you need to pay for the use of quilt and supermarket seems like a bit of walk if you don't have a car. it has kitechen and in the room locker. shower only in the basement. Room rate includes one welcome drink. staff are helpful. beds are a bit squeaky when moving your body.

    Wonderful hostel in the center of Akureyri! Stayed only 1 day in June 2013., because of roundtrip along Iceland, but all 5 of us wished to stay much longer. Design of hostel (furniture, for example to point some, like seats from bus in lounge room, wooden barn doors in toilet, cute place to chill with coffee/tea/book on first floor, funny notes all around the place etc.) and friendly staff at the reception desk is something which puts this hostel high on my 'Had to go back list'! Btw. And we even had sunny, warm, clear sky weather which was unfortunately not the case in Reykjavik. All the best from Croatia.
