This is a really nice hostel stay along the ring road in Vik. It is very close to town and to all the attractions, including Reynisfreja (black sand beach).

The Barn hostel was a great find during our travels in Iceland. The facility was well kept. The front desk was helpful with answering any questions and recommending nearby restaurants. (Sudor Vik was a great place to eat). The rooms are on the smaller side (our room had 6 people for 2 bunk beds) - but we were only there for one night so it was manageable! The location is just a short drive to Vik and some great tourist destinations.

Two things were missing. 1) the paper towel ran out in multiple bathrooms. In a hostel type of hotel this is important. 2) the location is gorgeous, BUT no out door seating. No fire pit, picnicking table, not even an old person bench. Disappointing.

Nice hostel experience. It was a bit noisy. Private rooms do not seem insulated. That's too bad because it's the only tong l thing that keeps it from being excellent

Very clean and very spacious. We had no problems with other guests and everyone we ran into, staff or guests, was very consciousness and polite. The kitchen area was well-stocked with dishes, pots/pans, appliances, and had plenty of space to work. Everything seemed to be in very good condition too. The dining are, also part of the kitchen, had a beautiful view of the Black Sand beaches to the south. Parking was located right in front of the building and was very convenient. Staff was helpful and friendly, and made checking in a breeze. Would highly recommend to anyone!
