I've stayed here a few times now, and it's a great place to meet people if you're travelling alone. I always meet some fun backpackers there. It's perched up on a hill overlooking the town, with a little restaurant a short walk away. There's a big kitchen with everything you need to self-cater. Always seems to smell of fried fish,...

The hostel is very slightly more expensive than the alternative in Vik but don't make the mistake of going to the other one. It is around the corner from one restaurant (which is OK) and short walk from the centre of Vik. The group of Spanish people looking after this HI hostel are doing a fantastic job. I felt welcomed...

This magical place is run by amazing people and all the facilities are quality. I have stayed there a handful of times and I´m always pleasantly surprised. Don´t rush it through Vík as this is a nice town to make day trips from, hiking or driving.

The place is very nice and is equipped in anything a youth hostel should have. Maybe one more bathroom would make it perfect. Breakfast was really good! For me Vík was special as I saw northern lights for the first time! They were visible both from the place the staff adviced us and from the front of the house.

I think this is a nice place when you want to stay at a dorm and meet fellow travellers. Nice cosy building, bit noisy, kitchen faciliteit, common eating and meeting room. But THE private room we tot was very small for a rather high price. 1 shared shower/ toilet for about 14 guests.

What I liked: the personnel was so kind and helpful, I felt very welcomed. The breakfast is complete, and the bathrooms are clean enough. The area is great to hike and the hostel propose different activities (like walking on a glacier at a very low price). Just one remark: the linen were smelling, probably because not properly dry and the...
