The hostel was spotlessly clean, beds were comfy and the dorms were really warm. The breakfast could have been better as there was not that much choice and the bread was quite dry.

Amazing hostel, really cosy! The perfect place to relax and enjoy Icelandic nature. The personal was really kind and the room really nice. Good facilities and really clean. If you are looking for a hostel with a special atmosphere, go for it!

The hostel is a bit retired from the rest of the city which was nice, again more quiet so. The placement is really good, with big windows to watch through the sea of Vik; the other side there is beautiful view on the mountains. The personal is really friendly, helpful and pleasant. The kitchen is well equiped, just one warming induction plate wasn't warm really efficiently. The dorms seemed to me nice, bedding too.

buona struttura, costo nella media, confortevole e accogliente. per il prezzo della colazione non la consiglio, alla fine è buona ma non è eccezzionale e non vale i soldi spesi. consigliato invece il bar li accanto per prendere una birra, alla sera dell'arrivo, affollato ma questo è un buon segno. il costo per una birra è sugli 8 - 10 euro.
