Nice hostel, good locations and warmly staffs. If you dont know where to go, you can ask the receptionist. They will show you the ways and some places to go. The hostel near by the market so you can find some food there.

clean room with cozy bed, nice ải-con, and good position. It's close to the real local market, and can buy things cheap at there. The staffs are very nice, and you also can get the city map from here.
