It would appear the puffin family (Lundi) has Vik sewn up- there is a hotel, hostel and apartments. To be clear, this is a review of the hotel. We got two double rooms. They were clean and bright, if a bit cozy. One room had no place to put a suitcase down (although there was room for furniture) but other...

My two friends and I stayed in a triple room in this hostel in mid-April. The room itself was fine - equipped with a bunk bed and a chair. The kitchen is underneath the stairs, it has no windows and is difficult to air out. There were only two showers and two toilets in the building we were staying in...

Stayed here for one night on our road trip across Iceland. It's a good midway stopping point, but there are pretty limited options where to stay. The puffin hotel was everything we needed for a night, the staff were lovely and checkin was very easy. The room was pretty big, especially compared to our previous hotel in Reykjavik. There was...

Stated in a Puffin cottage in Vik. Not good. Dirty. Light bulbs missing. Fridge broken. Badly equipped. Unlovely and unloved. And expensive, compared to some other great places to rent there. The worst place we stayed in Iceland.

Vik is a very small town but you should consider making a stop here as a 10min drive will bring to locations with minimal light pollution at night (ie. higher chances of capturing the northern lights). Puffin hostel is quite run-down; poor insulation, weak showers and narrow stairs. However, there are very limited accommodation options in Vik, and if you...

This hotel was in a great location but felt more like a hostel than a hotel. It is walkable to the beach and a supermarket. Our bed wasn't very comfortable and even though we asked for the heat to be turned down and we opened our window, our room was miserably hot. Also, the breakfast was lacking compared to other...

Pros: Use of kitchen. I was able to boil my pasta and had full use of the kitchen. Cons: Thin walls. Uncomfortable, old, small bed. Wifi kept going out. I had to take a sleeping pill to fall asleep because the other guest were extremely loud at 1am. There should be notes to be respectful of other guests and keep...

We stopped in Vik for one night to experience the black sand beach. Vik is a very small town and there isn't a lot of choice in terms of places to stay, but we enjoyed our stay at the Puffin Hotel. Walking distance to the black sand beach and to a nearby grocery store and liquor store. Breakfast was included...

The Puffin Hotel also has a hostel so there are a lot of people passing through the area. I loved the location. On site parking. There is a grocery across the street. You can easily walk to the black sand beach, they also offer horseback riding on the black sand beach and many other excursions can be booked from here...
