The place is perfect to meet people. It’s clean and beds are comfy. The Bar is busy and the staff were very nice and helpful.
Showers are powerful, which I love. They have hairdryer in the bathroom. The kitchen is equipped so you can cook anything there.
And we got a welcome beer when we checked in

This email relates only to the restaurant at Akureyri Backpackers. Had a decent lamb kekab [a wrap to North Americans] with large potato wedges and a delectable dipping sauce along with an Einstock draft. The place was busy, always a good sign. The spot is medium-sized so tables were at a premium, all the more so during the World Cup. It was a happening place.

The Akureyri Backpackers is one of the best accommodations I have ever been to. Very friendly staff, fantastic food and always good entertainment for example with seeing a singer performing there. It’s definitely worth staying there or just for having a cake or dinner there.
