Friendly stuff but they do not clean too often so its a bit dirty most of the time There's a big kitchen, laundry, dining room and good wifi Biggest problem is that you have to walk for about 30 mins to get into the city

Staff were amazing! I made a mistake with my booking and they were so quick to help and accommodate me in any way they could. Quiet place, bit of a hike from downtown but great view of the city from the hostel. Kitchen was great, fully equipped with everything you could need. Beds were comfy, showers were great. Couldn't have... More

Me and two friends stayed at Hostel Kerjalon whilst travelling by car around the Faroe Islands. We had pretty much the entire hostel to ourselves bar one man who worked at the adjacent Hotel Foroyar. The beds and rooms are comfortable, the showers and toilets were very clean. The communal area (next to the kitchen) was warm - the only... More

Too expensive. It's far away from the city centre, at least a good 20 minutes walk downhill. The rooms are clean but very small, the top beds are too close to the ceiling so taller people like myself have to be careful while climbing into bed. The bathroom is clean and well heated, and the kitchen is well equipped. Bed... More

Overall the facilities are fantastic - everything is very clean and well equipped, comfortable bedrooms, well designed communal bathrooms, big kitchen. The staff at Hotel Foroyar were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Only thing to consider is the long, uphill walk out of town - but by the same token the hostel has an amazing view and is close to the... More

This place is just fine. I like the fact that the management of Hotel Foroyar recognise the fact that there are people on different budgets. I took my bicycle to the Faroe Islands as an outdoor activity tourist yet my corporate life is smart hotels and so on. A hostel room.was perfectly lovely and to be able to use the... More

If you're looking for budget accommodation in Torshavn you'll probably end up staying in a hostel. We paid 600 DKK a night for a first floor double room with fantastic views down to Torshavn from our window. Communal bathrooms were clean but people often left their washing up in the kitchen sink. The drinks vending machine was out of order... More

The hostel itself is a very nice building, with comfortable beds in warm rooms. The showers are decent - good pressure with a private area to get changed in. A bit out of the city centre, but it's only a 20-30min walk down the hill.

Stayed three nights in a 4-bed room. The hostel itself is fine but it definitely takes a back seat to the hotel that owns it. Not well-supplied (one bathroom was out of toilet paper for an entire day). Not dirty but not cleaned very often either. Nice-sized rooms on two floors. Quiet but probably because it's way out of the... More

Ended up hear staying during the Faroes eclipse because I couldn't find any other accommodation. This is a hostel with a difference. It is in the grounds of the 4 star Hotel Foroyar (one of the top hotels in Torshavn) and it's where you check in and collect your bedding and towels. The accommodation is 4 to a room in... More
