Old building. Very thin walls that you get disturbed by any noise in the corridor or ground floor. Only 4 showers and 4 WC for the whole hostel.

Cozy Hostel in Vik
The Puffin Hostel was clean and the staff were very helpful. However, it was very noisey with people going in and out of their rooms doors at all hours of the evening. Also, the stairway to the upstairs was very narrow and required you to carefully navigate or you would tumble down. The hostel kitchen had everything need to cook and clean up. Bathrooms and showers were hostel style, shared with everyone, family style. The living arrangement is highly dependent on everyone respecting each other to make their stay comfortable.

Near beach
Enjoyed my stay. Single room was very basic as I knew - bed, table. Comfortable enough though. Good kitchen. Parking on site. Only one thing would be good - some signs reminding people not to make a lot of noise in the hallways and another plug socket.
