Located in a quiet neighbourhood within walking distance from Akureyri centre, hostel Akureyri is cosy and has been run by the same family for 50 years.
The hostel offers a range of accommodation options including two summerhouses which can accommodate 8 people each and a cabin that takes 3 people, and there are two kitchens, a dining area, lounge with TV and many great books so you can chill-out and read after a day’s sightseeing.
Akureyri has one of the best skiing areas in the country only 7km away from the town's centre, and there are many guided tours available including Mývatn lake, Dettifoss waterfall, Eyjafjörður fjord, Hrísey island and Ólafsfjörður town. There are also daily tours to Greenland from Akureyri during the summer.
What travellers think
Nice quiet place to stay and being near a discount supermarket (for self-catering) is an added bonus. Only issue is with the somewhat stringent check-in time window. Could be problematic for people who need to arrive late and may be looking for a hostel bed. Good kitchen and very clean overall.

Budget meal tip
Ninguno de los restaurantes que te recomienden, son un par de cadenas con poco valor para el turista y precio medio alto. Como si te llevan al vips y te cuesta un pico ;)
