I stayed at the hostel with my partner. When we arrived the entire building smelled om smoke. There were cigarette bumps in the sink and the place was very dirty; trash on the floor, lots of dust, crumbles on the table, bad smell. The beds were very old and looked really bad with stains. Although we had a bad experience... More

This place is VERY basic. The interior does not make a good impression, everything is a bit old, grubby and broken. Not very clean, either. All that would have been fine - we were not expecting the Hilton. But the price of DKK 400 per person (including breakfast) is way too high for this standard. I appreciate that it is... More

An amazing spot in an extraordinarily remote place. The lamb roast was stunning. Close to walks, sheep and amazing views. Take the chopper back to Vagar, it only cost AUD 29 !!! Start the lighthouse walk early-it's quite hard.

There's not much coice on the island so Kristianshus is the place to go. A friendly staff (from Finland this time) served us coffee, tea and homemade cakes. There are two small reception rooms with tables where you can sit and wait for the ferry to come. We did not stay for the night.

We had a very good fish soup, coffee and homemade cake. Great start on the trekking tour to the lighthouses. I did not stay overnight so no opinion on that. Basic and rustic as it should be in this kind of remote place. It's well worth a stop and to support locals.

A very small and friendly b'n'b and also the islands only restaurant. Small and rustic rooms with hardly any sound isolation. Small bathroom en suite. Friendly staff that can give you good ideas for excursions. I didn't expect that much since there wasn't any alternative but was positively surprised.

As mentioned by other travellers, there are bed bugs at Kristianshus, so we cannot recommend staying there. If you need accommodation at Mykines, try the other B&B/ guesthouse (Yellow house? Gulahusid) instead - however, if you only want a daytrip for watching the puffins, it is perfectly fine to take the morning ferry out to Mykines, trek to the lighthouse... More

*****DO NOT STAY HERE***** bed bugs are rampant. The owner spent 3 hours cleaning our room and we had to wait downstairs before it was ready after traveling all day. The owner obviously knew there was bugs in the room but still made that room available. Myself and my traveling companion both now have MANY bites all over our bodies.... More

While the rooms where very basic they were ok except for the bed bugs. When we arrived the owner was cleaning our room and she took about three hours so she MUST have known about the bugs. Inside of arranging a room in the other guesthouse (yellow house) which had rooms , she just kept quiet and let us stay... More

it's simply the perfect accomodation for this kind of place and the spirit you should have in a trip to Faroe islands. Kristianshus is located in one of the few wooden house of the only village of Mykines island. is the only place on the island where you can find something to eat or drink, or anything you would find...
