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.

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.
