8/10 Very good

Great hostel. My first experience. I had a room with a king bed. The property was clean and full! Lots of good vibes in the shared kitchen. Made new friends instantly. Would love if it was a bit cheaper. Came back for a second night 3 days later and had the most unbelievable Aurora show. Magical. Very well run property. Bed and pillows were good.

Nice hostel but expensive. Also the website when booking for 2 people was difficult to understand -- when booking for 2 people, it is a 2-person bed. 2 twin beds would be about 60 USD each or about 120$ total.

First and foremost - this is a killer location in Vik. You're far enough away from stuff to feel remote but also close to ALOT. And everything is a short drive away if needed. (Gas, food, etc). The facilities are clean and we never had an issue with getting a shower stall at night. The private rooms have two bathrooms for them. The dorms have their own bathrooms and they do provide towels. They do have kitchen supplies and a bar downstairs to have a beer or get a snack. Service was never an issue and we always found a seat. My one and only issue is the "quiet hours" which dont start till 1130pm! Be aware: IF you decide to do the "private room" option upstairs - the main kitchen for everyone in the property is at the end of that hall upstairs. We had the pleasure of getting room 201 which was the first room next to it. It was VERY loud at night. We didnt mind the conversations or people hanging out but the first night we stayed there a large group singing and playing techno music that was up very late. (Sure wish i had ear plugs!) And the "window" they advertise to look at the northern lights - caution - they line up with peoples headlights/taillights so we ended up closing the curtain cause people come and go at all hours.

This is a really nice hostel stay along the ring road in Vik. It is very close to town and to all the attractions, including Reynisfreja (black sand beach).
