Came here by tripadvisor recommendation. Everything has already been said in the comment section. Very good dorms, especially the thick soft beds. Haven't slept in them yet but you know they are good from the moment you crash down in them when you arrive. The staff is very friendly and happy to help you out from the start (had a...

The reviews all talk about the beds and it's true they are so comfy and the staff are probably the nicest we've met on all of our travels, they couldn't have been more helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here!!!!!

Friendly and helpful staff, Quynh at reception was very helpful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, one of the nicest hostels in my trip across Vietnam. Nice bar downstairs with good food and vibe and a pool table also. Would recommend

Stumbled across this place after eating dinner and we were both very impressed! Very friendly, attentive service throughout. Cocktails were brilliant and food equally impressive. Happy hour runs from 5pm - 10.30pm and price wise rivals all other bars in the area. Really top notch. Recommend.

The hostel offers one free beer in the evening plus 10% off your order at their restaurant and decent breakfast is included with different choice of eggs or pancakes plus fruit, tea or coffee. Staff are extremely nice and helpful. You can...

For the money and the location, this is a very fine hostel. Showers had average water pressure, and a few temperature issues. Beds were comfortable, but in the group rooms, the dividers between them were a little low. If you sit up in bed, you have an intimate view of your neighbor, not to mention the other 3 people on...

One of the best hostels I had so far. Super comfi and big soft beds. Sort of private cabin with curtains. Clean and clean towels every day. Friendly helpful staff. Good free breakfast and a great restaurant underneath.

We stayed here on a whim and were not disappointed! Service is amazing and all the staff, especially the head receptionist, were so helpful, kind and funny. She made sure all our needs were taken care of and ensured that we were having fun. Always smiling and joking here, love it!!
