The property was nice and clean but it was the only guesthouse we stayed in during our two weeks in Iceland that didn’t have full kitchen access or the ability to cook in or out of the room you booked, which is one of the primary reasons to book a guesthouse over a hotel. The guesthouse had a toaster and microwave, but no ability to cook past that, which is unusual. They offered a standard breakfast for a fee and had shared bathrooms - which is normal for guesthouses. Otherwise a nice place to stay if you are looking for a more “hotel” vibe/don’t care about the ability to cook your own food.

Nice stay for a solo traveler. There were plenty of restrooms so no problems with sharing facilities. The common area is beautiful with lovely views. They served a very nice breakfast with several options.

Such a cute guest house!! Room was simple but had everything needed. Shared bathroom and showers but they were updated and very clean. Small kitchen if needed. The dining room is a new addition to the house and is very nice as well - amazing view of the city. There is a great breakfast that is available for a fee. Definitely enjoyed our stay. Also walked to a soup restaurant a few minutes away for dinner and it was fantastic! Definitely recommend Guesthouse Carina!

Cozy, Warm, Comfortable
The Carina Guesthouse was a lovely, cozy stay. We would love to help Carina get to a 10! The breakfast room provided solace during a particularly stormy morning as we planned our adventures for the day. Our room was comfortable and the bathrooms and showers were clean and we never waited to use them. We opted for breakfast and found the options satisfying. We would 10 out of 10 recommend.

Excellent place to stay. Carina is very friendly and hospitable, especially when she helped me and my friends with drying out our wet clothes after getting wet at the waterfalls. The place was clean, well kept, and quiet. The breakfast made the stay even more enjoyable, with spacious dinning tables and a well variety of tables. You'll have little to no regrets staying here.

Overall comfortable hotel given price
This was a fine place to stay in Vik. Accommodations and shared bathrooms were overall nice but a little musty. There is breakfast offered in the morning at a price; you must let them know ahead of time if interested. There was confusion over our breakfast reservation, likely stemming from translation difficulties, which resulted in many interruptions so it ended up being a stressful situation. In addition to served breakfast, there is a small kitchen area if you wanted to buy and microwave your own food. You are not able to see the black sand beach from the property, but it is only 5 minutes away.
