We stayed there for 2 days with our kids. We had a bedroom in the basement and it was very damp. When we opened the window, there were bugs. In the bathroom, it smell very bad. There was only 3 bathrooms and it wasn't enough. They clean once a day so it was ok at night but dirty in the... More

We stayed one night at the hostel in July 2016. It is beautifully located on top of a hill in Vik, and it offers free parking and wifi. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is a very nice restaurant next to the hostel, in which guests of the hostel receive a 10% discount on meals (though we didn't go,... More

Rooms were okay but little small with low ceiling in part of the room. Other than that the room was okay. The kitchen was fully equipped. The dining room is spacious with ocean view. There are two things that require improvement : number of toilet is ony 2 and the wifi connection was unstable.0

I stayed here with three friends in December 2015. We stayed in a private room on the sub-ground level adjacent to a small bathroom. The breakfast was nice and locally sourced, but we felt that it was overpriced for the food that was provided. The reception area was really friendly and cosy.

The hostel employees were very pleasant and it was nice that breakfast was offered (at 1500isk) but my room was a bit too small for my liking. We stayed in a private 4 person room on the sub-ground level and the only washroom on the floor was tiny with a single toilet and shower. The washroom floor was sopping wet... More

iceland was just perfect and staying at this hostel made my stay even better. It looks like a warm family house. the staff was very polite, the place was spotless, very clean and it has a perfect location. to eat something, on the gas station there is a "fast food restau" where the hamburguers were amazing!

Nestled on a mountain top overlooking the cliffs. This was such an amazing place, felt at home straight away. Rooms very clean. Breakfast was super with freshly hatched eggs from the chicken on the farm. I can't praise the owner enough as she was so helpful beforehand asking all of my questions.

ViK HI hostel is a small Hostel located at the village of VIK in ICELAND. Hostel is charming and staff is very friendly. We used a shared room for four persons but it was very small with little room for the laguages. We decided to purchase the breakfast which was good. Hostel was clean.

Location is excellent and there's a nice view. There are chickens running around the grounds, which I loved. It was clean. There was no hot water the night I was there, which was an unpleasant surprise. The bed was uncomfortable - but, with a hostel, sometimes it's to be expected. Coffee was excellent in the morning. I didn't try the... More
