I stayed for 3 nights; it was hard to find since it had just changed that day from being student housing under a different name, to the Guesthouse name for the summer - also construction all around it made it hard to figure out how to get into the parking lot. But, once there, it was excellent! As other reviews... More

This guesthouse (really a hostel) was the only place with vacancies at the time of booking in February, because our stay in Torshavn coincided with the 28-29 July Festival (when it seems 'everyone and his dog' descends on the capital). The facade of the building looked like an East Berlin tenement before the fall of 'the wall' and some of... More

I stayed in this guesthouse for 6 nights, travelling with a group of Italian people. It was a very good base for the trip around the Faroe Islands because it offered an accommodation with good value for money compared to the others in Torshavn. The walking distance to Torshavn center is about 20 min and you can also easily reach... More

Excelent place, mervellous staff. Clean and confortable. Abundant and complete breakfast. Bus stop just in Front of the guesthouse, and for free! If you have a trouble, they will be there for you. Willi, the mánager, is a very friendly man.

I've stayed at the Marknagil guesthouse two times out of my last three trips to the Faroe Islands. There was always a good selection at the buffet style breakfast every morning, and the view of the harbor from the cafeteria was fantastic. There's a big parking lot that offers free parking for the guests, and for those on foot, the... More

We stayed 8 nights with my husband in Guesthouse Marknagil in July 2011. We had a very pleasant stay and if we ever go back to the Faroe Islands, we'll stay here again. Guesthouse Marknagil is a student dormitory that serves as a hostel in summertime. Two rooms share a bathroom and a toilet. We had booked one room, but... More
