We stayed one night here- helpful receptionist, average room, clean bathroom.( but there's only 2 bathroom in 2 floors) The only thing I didn't like is the internet was not really working- so we couldn't really arrange our plan.

This place is incredibly small. Only a few rooms and only one dorm room, where we stayed. Shoes must be taken off at the door. The kitchen made the place kind of smell for the rest of the night, which was a minor problem compared to the fact that everyone was up talking until around 1 am. They seemed to... More

We stayed one night in Nordur Vik Youth Hostel while on the chase for the northern lights. It is behind the Surdur- Vik Restaurant to your left (follow the dirk road). The hostel itself feels more homey. We were asked to remove our shoes upon entering reception (I think this help to keep the place clean). We arrive late afternoon... More

Kind of hard to find.. Stayed 2 nights, the first was nice. Not many people. Place was quiet and friendly. Second time the place was full and very loud. A big group including people who work at the hostel were extremely loud until past 2am and made it impossible to sleep in such a small place where the sounds echoed... More

This quaint hostel is located at the edge of town in a picturesque setting. The view of the mountains cannot be beat. I loved the atmosphere of the hostel — very comfortable and cozy, especially the common area. The kitchen was big enough and had all the tools we needed, but there weren't enough bathrooms for the number of guests... More

I have been last september in that hostel and it was correct. I was in a 4 junks room just in front of the main door, downstairs. It is a charmy place but, in my opinion, there is no plenty space if the hostel is full. For example the kitchen is so small that there is no space for more... More

Plus side: the view and the bulding. It's very near to the "city center" which is pretty unexistant like most of icelandic cities. Minus side: the place looks old, not like everything is old but like it's been furnished by a very old person. the common areas are good but they miss a spark. the rooms with 6 beds were... More

The hostel was very easy to spot, it had a great view of town, and is a perfect "photography" location at sunrise!(will post photo.) I was a bit scared at first and confused as what to do, but I put on my big boy pants, and figured it out! After the reception, I got my bags in, and went for... More

Location was excellent. Facilities were average, with one bathroom per level (3 levels in total). Due to the nature of the building, noise was easily transmitted. Wifi only available in the main lobby which was quite small.

I wanted to like the Vik hostel. After reading all the reviews I had no worries about this stop on my journey. I was sadly disappointed though. I'll start with what was good since I wasn't miserable staying at this little hostel. Good things: The staff was very warm and friendly. Large common areas and adequate kitchen. Easy to find....
