We would a little amount of your time in Vietnam consequently we would considered opting out of the Castaway trip, I am happy we didn't! We went with an excellent team of people and made a lot of buddies with another guests also the tour guides. When you're competent to, stay for the two nights, one night just isn't adequate! The tour guides were definitely fun that is great. The online games and' island rules' kept the party choosing the whole trip! We didn't want to keep!

Honestly I had the most amazing time on castaways. My reps were Lucy, Mitch, Gaby and Hannah. Could not have asked for a funnier and more accommodating group of reps. From the start Lucy was so helpful when it came to getting us to the island, I had a lot of questions and usually with reps from other hostels (NOT VBH) have made me feel annoying for asking them, however she did not and was so kind to me as I was anxious about going over. As soon as we arrived on the island Hannah have the best introduction about the island and the rules, which was so clear and just to the point, so we managed to get checked in so quickly. It then came to the games and I felt slightly embarrassed to ask if I could join in with some sporting activities, Mitch and I got chatting and he took me over to the boys to join in and from then on Mitch really took me under his wing and looked after me when I got so drunk on the first night (due to my own doing and the once in a life time experience of a boat party in halong bay) and passed out at 9pm. The same night I had misplaced my things, I went and told Gaby who got all the staff looking, Lucy took me to search the boat and looked after me in my drunk state and helped me when I had a bad fall. Gaby ran the drinking games and taught me some new games I’ll definitely be taking home with me, I mean the Canadians (I think she’s Canadian anyway it’s a shame I didn’t get to know her more as she seems lovely) are the best at those games. Overall I could not recommend a better group of reps to experience the island with. Going onto the accommodation the bunks are amazing you feel like you’re in the wilderness and being between two limestone walls and a beautiful beach just makes you feel how lucky you are when you’re looking out to the beautiful ocean it makes you want to ring the gong and buy everyone a drink😂 I’ve made friends for life on this island even as a solo traveller.

We got recommended to do castaway by every person we spoke to before coming to Vietnam, and it definitely lived up to expectations, extremely well organized from leaving VBH downtown, to returning back. We went from 31st December until 2nd Jan, if your after a party this is definitely the one for you.
Worth noting the reps are brilliant and know how to get the party started... Sav, Lucy & Dan.
An extra special shoutout for Gabby who started our boatparty with a bang! For me, it would not of been the same without her...

Myself and my partner have been traveling around vietnam for a few weeks. It was my birthday at the end of January so we decided to book a castaways tour for it. It was honestly probably the best birthday I’ve ever had. We went on a booze cruise two days in a row and the reps were amazing at their jobs. Big shout out to Hannah and Gabbie who were so welcoming and great fun. They made a huge effort to celebrate my birthday. 10/10 would recommend to everyone!

Castaway is recommended if you like:
1 - being with people who behave like silly teenagers;
2 - dirty beach (see pics)

I booked the tour for 3 days and 2 nights. On the second day I left. I couldn't stay an extra minute in that place. Save your money for something else.

Whether you like scenary, partying activities or waking up to paddle boarding around halong Bay this is the place to do it through. I have been travelling South East Asia for 4 months so far and this was the highlight of my trip! Shout out to Mitch and Matt your hospitality was second to none. Book this tour you won't regret it!!

Was apprehensive at first due to heavy drinking stories but it turned out to be amazing! Perfect balance between partying, relaxing, and water sports. 100% worth the money. Shout out to reps Hannah, Mitchell, Alex, and Rob for making it great!

This is probably the nicest/best experience I've had since I've been travelling. All the staff were great, especially mitch and matt (dont give matt tequila he will throw up for hours haha). In all seriousness they were brilliant the whole trip, very helpful and bought so much energy to the island which made my time fantastic. Everyone needs to get on this tour its second to none.

The staff were friendly and enthusiastic which made the experience even more enjoyable! Gabby and Lucy were super fun to be around and did a fantastic job while we were there. Definitely recommend them and the place as a whole!
