This review refers to the two buildings in Jakobsengota, and not to the hostel by the same name elsewhere in town. The rooms were spacious and very confortable and the bathrooms were clean and modern. WiFi was excellent and breakfast was generous. This is not really a hostel, it is a basic and very functional hotel in a very central... More

We stay in the guesthouse part. A double room with private bath and a balcony to view the whole Torshavn. Both room and bathroom are new, spacious and clean. The view of balcony is great, can see the harbour if weather is good. Breakfast is basic and good. 800DKKper night is expensive but OK for the room quality. Only one... More

I stayed in the hostel portion near the harbor, and given that there aren't many hostels in Tórshavn (or the Faroes at all) it was basically my only choice. What is not made clear on the website is that the hostel is in a completely different location from the guesthouse where you check in. The guesthouse is in the main... More

I have stayed at Bladypi twice: once in a single room in the hostel part in 2009 and once in a single room in the guesthouse/hotel part in 2014. My hostel room in 2009 was spartan but adequate. My guesthouse/hotel room in 2014 was lovely and was in a very new part of the complex. Comfortable bed, good TV, very... More

We recently stayed at the Bladypi hostel in Torshavn. We had booked online and hoped to be staying in the guesthouse as the reviews were quite positive, however we ended up in the hostel. What is not clearly stated is that they have three buildings: two in downtown Torshavn and one by the harbor. In our opinion, the hostel was... More

Remember that this is a hostel and does not have things like phones in the rooms or daily cleaning. But, despite being rather basic, it is clean, quiet, very close to the center of town and run by very friendly and helpful people. The breakfast is standard but good.

We're glad we looked beyond the word "hostel" in our search for lodging that fit our budget. We are not experienced world travelers, but wanted a home base while attending an athletic competition. Our room was private with a very small bathroom, a table and two small beds. There was a kitchen down the hall that had a refrigerator to... More

We were 3 touring by car based in Torshavn. So all we really wanted was a clean room with a decent bathroom in a not too inconvenient location. The Bladypi is 10 mins from the town centre, such as it is, with a large supermarket just at the doorstep. It's a bit of a walk with lugage from the bus... More

Spent three nights here on holiday in April. They have three types of accommodation on offer, I opted for B&B. Budget options are limited in Torshavn, and this guest house has the huge advantage of being at the bottom of the hill less than a 10 minute walk from the harbour / bus station (the bus / ferry station has...

There is not much to complain about with this one, and that is unusual for me. Overall, it's very central, handy for shops, bars, etc. and the management are very helpful. I stayed in 2 rooms, one a dorm and the other a single. With both, I felt I paid a very good price considering what I got: bed linen,... More
