We stayed in the Puffin HOTEL, NOT the hostel last March. It looks like a number of these reviews are for the hostel. The hotel was amazing. It was clean and cheap with good breakfast. The staff were very nice, which seemed to be the normal around Iceland. We didn't have a fridge in our room, but the hotel staff were able to store some refrigerated meds for us in a fridge only staff had access to. This was the hotel, not the hostel, so there wasn't a public kitchen. Granted I didn't look for one either. Any drinks we wanted cold we stuck outside on our snowy balcony. At night some people gathered in the dining room to hangout and play games. I think there was a small bar there as well. Its clean, the people are nice, the food wasn't bad. We liked our room. It's not meant to be a luxury hotel and it doesn't claim to be one. That said, it exceeded our expectations. We'd absolutely stay there again.

Great experience staying here. Staff were polite and helpful, room was comfortable and cozy. Plenty of parking and the breakfast was really tasty. Ideal location in Vík by the tourist information centre. Would stay here again if I was in the area.
