Would stay there again!
The Barn is right outside of Vík, the coastal village that is the biggest town south of Reykjavík. The other hotels in Vík looked nice but the Barn was so much bigger, so modern, and it was nice to have a community feel. We got a private room upstairs and honestly it was great. No TV, but we could hear the howling wind all night and it was really soothing! We got beers at the downstairs bar our second night staying there which was fun too. The whole place is sparkling clean and the private rooms are a good size. You share a common three bathrooms that are private which wasn't a big deal to us. There is a communal kitchen separated from the private rooms. We never used it but people were in there each night making dinner and it was nice that it was available as there aren't many restaurants in the area. All dorm rooms are downstairs and private rooms upstairs so it was nice to have some space apart if you wanted to be more private. It was affordable and we're super glad to have stayed there! Plus we checked off "HOSTEL" off our list!
