    Beautiful but we shared room

    This hotel was amazingly clean, organized, and had a bar on property which also serves pizza. The kitchen area was huge with all appliances, utensils, etc. readily available. ONLY downside was the fact we did not know we had to share our room with 6 other people. The room had 2 double beds that were stacked. However, each double bed had it's own blackout curtain for privacy. Glad we had the bottom bunk since we tend to get up to use the restroom at night. Well-organized and clean restrooms/showers. Our bed had a electric wall socket for easy charging of our many devices. This hotel is on the turn-off to get to the Black Sand Beach and only a few kilometers to Vik. CHEAP and excellent location to see the famous beach but may be difficult to get to Vik without a vehicle-probably hitch a ride to town since most folks are going that way. We never actually saw our roommates and they were very quiet. Best bang for the buck for sure! Why pay more if you only basically sleep in your room and are off exploring for the majority of your day?

    Beautiful facility. Nicest “hostel” I’ve ever experienced.

    Just an amazing hostel, one of the best I’ve ever been. I stayed for 3 nights. Meticulously clean, super friendly staff, comfy beds with curtains, amazing location a few min from the beach or Vik. Bar downstairs and a big kitchen upstairs. If I had one complaint it would be that the walls are thin so if you have noisy neighbors that can be a little annoying, but hard to blame the hostel for that.

    NOT a quiet place to sleep & showers don’t drain

    Firstly, this is a HOSTEL. Not a hotel. If you go in with those expectations and are looking to party, make friends & stay up all night this is your place! If you’re looking for a quiet place to crash before another day of adventuring this is NOT the place. The walls are paper thin and you can hear everything in adjoining rooms, lobby below and communal kitchen. My room was directly above reception and I literally heard every conversation of each person checking in all night long - I did not get any sleep even wearing ear plugs. People were up all hours chatting in the communal kitchen which echo’d into the room. The most disgusting part was the bathrooms. I paid for a double room (which I assumed had a bathroom - it did not) FYI there are 2 bathrooms for 10 rooms the share!! The bathrooms smelled musty and gross and the showers did not drain. So I had to shower in someone else’s old dirty standing water (vomit) wearing flip flops in the shower as it was that bad. Vibe of the place was hip trendy fun communal - if you’re looking to make friends & party this is definitely the place to be - it was poppin. But if you’re looking for sleep - find somewhere else - this was the worst place I stayed of my trip in Iceland and the lack of sleep jacked me up for the next 3 days. Also - for the price I paid for the double room Mountain View (of the parking lot) I would’ve been way better off in any of the nice hotels around. Would never return.

    Upscale and modern. Perfect stay!

    WONDERFUL stay!! Clean, modern, upscale. Perfect for our family of 5. We got two rooms and it was perfect. Kitchen is WELL stocked with everything needed for cooking. 2 cooking stations and 4 mini fridges to store food. Laundry service available for a fee. Laundry is done for you-drop in the evening and it's done in the morning. Clean, hot showers. Love the bar and workspace downstairs as well. Highly recommend!

    Absolutely beautiful modern-mid century décor and amazing views of the landscape a few miles out of Vik. I don't love that the dormitory rooms have 6 double beds stacked in cubicles (with curtains that pull shut for privacy) without much spare space in the room, but if you aren't prone to claustrophobia, you will love the brand new, beautiful feel of everything, including a large dining room with spectacular views to hang out at all day if its raining and you need a break from travel.
