Alles war sehr liebevoll und schön gemacht. Hausgemachtes auf dem Frühstücksbuffett und Hühner im Garten. Die Küche ist mit allem eingerichtet was man braucht. Einzig unangenehm war der Schimmel in den Ecken (Badezimmer am Fenster und in der Küche am Fenster). Wäre der nicht gewesen, wäre es ganz perfekt.

Very much enjoyed my stay at the hihostel in Vik. Goo/Gru is a gem and was rather helpful about letting me know about everything in the area while being very pleasant.

Nice quirky hostel, clean and warm, a bit more expensive than other hostels and not quite sure why. It was compulsory to buy breakfast which was a bit frustrating.
