Great location and a lovely little village. Stunning views all around. Nice friendly and helpful staff. Small kitchen with only 1 sink and no oven but nice dining room with good views. Bedroom was small but cozy.

Hostel was a little hard to find, but once there it was nice and clean with a well organised kitchen and nice communal eating areas. The rooms were fine, but could have been bigger, and the whole place could do with a facelift but the problems were superficial only. As always, good free wifi.

I booked a double room here with my husband, which was more like a cupboard with one of us mashed against the wall and eves. Room so small there was only a bed and a chair - but hanging a mirror wouldn't have taken any space. Whole building is shabby, run down and shower door is still broken. None of... More

The Youth Hostel Vik is located on the hillside overlooking the town. We arrived after dark and spent what seemed like forever driving around trying to find the place. We didn't see any signs. It could have been that we were just being clueless tourists. Get good driving direction before you go. The other thing was the upstairs bathroom lacked... More

The hostel was by far the worst we stayed in in Iceland, it was located conveniently and with excellent views but it was dirty, the shower door was broken, only one bathroom per several rooms so always a queue and the sheets we paid for had stains on. Not impressed.

We stayed here for 2 nights in April as we were travelling around the south coast of Iceland. The hostel is clean and warm and very cosy during cold Icelandic nights. We had a fantastic view from our room. Kitchen facilities are ok, however not enough bathrooms for the number of people in the hostel. The staff are helpful. A... More

My friend and I traveled throughout Iceland for 8 days in October. This was our favorite place to stay as it is very homey and friendly. The staff was always nice and helpful and the other guests were the same. The rooms are basic hostel rooms. The hostel itself isn't that big and because there are not a lot of... More
