As someone who doesn't always plan super far in advance, I was shocked to find two weeks out from my Faroe Islands trip that all the accommodation in Torshavn on the dates I would be in town was fully booked out - except for one place, Guesthouse Marknagil. So I didn't choose to stay here so much as it chose...

The bed was okey . The breakfast was very nice . In the evening we played card downstairs and there was also a...

This dormitory converted to questhouse during summer months is in my opinion JUST GREAT solution for those who need clean spacious and very simple rooms. The rooms are with two comfortable separate beds either private bathroom (like I prefer) or without private bathroom (which means you share both separate shower room and sepatate bathroom with only one other guest room...

This hostel (i.e. dormitory) is a GREAT place to stay mainly due to the relatively lower cost and friendliness of the clientele and staff. Willi, the man who runs the place, was very kind and friendly and also tremendously helpful as I found out for myself after reading reviews here on TripAdvisor. His recommendations and advice made my overall experience...

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...

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...

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...

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...

“For those who want a good view of the harbor, I recommend any room that overlooks the city. For a more quiet room, I would recommend a room that overlooks the parking lot and the mountain.”
