Puffin hostel was so lovely and quaint. The kitchen and common areas were frequently cleaned. Vik was a really lovely area and it was easy to walk to everything or drive a few minutes to see waterfalls and black sand beaches!

The property is old and looks like its not well maintained. The bottom of the bunk bed is sunked in the middle and very noisy when you move a little bit.
