I stayed one night in this hostel, and I would recommend it. The room was clean, the bed really big and separate, with curtain for more privacy, you have good breakfast & free beer included in the price. And the staff is nice and competent. Thanks to Loan the receptionist for her smile and kindness!

In over a month of traveling in Vietnam, this is definitely one of my favorite hostels. EVERYONE is seriously kind and helpful, and it has the best beds, which are wide and comfortable, plus privacy curtains! The restaurant is very nice, and as a huge bonus, Quyen who works here is hysterical.
