4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The staff was less than enthusiastic, but helpful. The rooms were clean, the common areas comfortable. The dorm was very spacious. The toilets clean, but the showers could have used an additional scrub. The hostel was well located and convenient to all the things in the town that I was interested in.

Screaming fans
We had an amazing time staying in Akureyri. The only thing I would complain about is the location of our room/window. We were located above a very popular bar that was playing loud music and had screaming customers till 2am. Other than that it was a great place to stay.
