A great stay in Vík

Location, cleanliness, comfort, facility. Best is the rooftop room with a view of the mountain outside the window.

Lovely hostel, cosy with great facilities in a great location.

Loved this hostel – Vik is a really lovely little town, great for exploring the south coast of Iceland. The hostel itself was basic but had all the facilities we needed and was really cosy and homey. The kitchen has all the supplies you could want and there’s a large common area to eat/hang out in.

Love this place!

Highly recommend it for its charm and location! Loved staying at the Puffin hostel and in the town of Vik; this is a very cute newly renovated but still holding its old world charm and very homey feeling building – traveling with my teenage son it was an ideal stopover and one of our favorites.

Superb!

 The place is 100 years old and thats why they cannot make it bigger. So yeah, rooms are small, but they are comfortable and the rest of the place is awesome enough. Also the staff is super helpful and friendly.

Location

About Vík in Mýrdal

Vík, located in the southernmost point of Iceland, might be a small village (with slightly over 300 inhabitants), but it can offer a lot of things to enjoy, as it has many interesting sights and landmarks only a stone´s throw away:

Reynisfjara Black Beach

One of Iceland’s most Instagram worthy places. A dark and moody black beach with spectacular views towards Reynisdragar.

Dyrhólaey

A stunning promontory with a historical lighthouse and beautiful views over the black beaches and surrounding glaciers, this is a must do on the Ring Road in Iceland.

The Church of Vík

The church itself is extremely photogenic, but the views around it make it a stunning scene. It is undeniably the most known place in Vík.

Hjörleifshöfði

Only a 10-minute drive from the village of Vík, this cave offers a very interesting view looking from inside out, it looks just like Yoda from the Star Wars films!

Reynisfjall

The majestic mountain towering over Vík offers a moderately challenging, 7.2-kilometer looped hiking trail with dramatic views from every side of the mountain, worth a hike in any day with pleasant weather!
