4/10 Fair

Didn’t worth the price
The room is too small, only 8x6 square feet,so it’s very uncomfortable. It didn’t worth it with the price. Also the staircase is too narrow and steep. It’s totally unsafe to travel up and down with luggage. Other than that everything is clean.

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!
