“Not worth the money”
Reviewed October 28, 2018 for a stay in October 2018

people found this review helpful

The trip to the homestay was organized by a coworker so I did not study much about the place before coming, which turned out a big mistake.
Overall, the place looks Ok and is designed in a traditional style out of bamboo and wood, including a tree house combined with a common playground used for team building activities, presentation, eating, playing games, etc.. and a common toilet area.
The toilet area was separate from the lodge, to access it we had to climb down a wooden staircase. Toilet is not clean. One bathroom even got broken door handle, water has muddy taste.
There is a pond in the backyard, which is not well maintained, with dirty water, forming perfect habitat for mosquito laying their eggs, guess so cause I got 3 mosquito bite marks on my thigh.
At night, our 7-ppl group were all set up into a small room with 2 fans (no AC), and 7 small mattresses without any blanket until we ask for. To make it worse, the room next door had loud talks until we couldn’t bear it anymore and complained to them. He charged us VND 750,000 (~ USD 32) per person for this kind of accommodation.
Bikes were given free of charge.
Meals: dinner and breakfast were included in the room fee, but for lunches we had to pay extra $4.4/person/meal for a meal of 2-3 kinds of vegetable, small plate of pork or fish or small shrimp, soup (which was a pain to my meat-lover tummy). The chillies were even served without washing, as they said they farmed them in their backyard, just located right behind the toilet area. The meal price is expensive and not worthy according to Vietnamese standard living cost and sanitary standards.
Host: he bragged too much about how good, eco-friendly, social oriented purpose of his lodge, which is Ok for some times, but his repeated lines stink.
I won’t recommend, for similar price or even lower, I should have better experience in other homestay across Vietnam and other countries.

“Disappointment about the organization”
Reviewed April 23, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

person found this review helpful

I booked a tour for my team (18 people) for our last team building of 2 days. Here are my requirements while booking:
1. Trekking in the forest with some collective games
2. Having the whole woody house for the team as we would have private activities
3. Quiet place
Here is the organization:
1. Trekking was not at all in the forest. Games were so boring
2. The house area was under construction: it is noisy, dusty and we have the share the woody house. There were only 2 fans (1 didn’t work) for everybody.
3. As that were the construction site, the excavator were working outside while we have the meeting in the house, it was so noisy and I insisted many time so that they could stop.
I had the debriefing with the owner (Hieu, the director), I told him that he should not organize this tour because of the construction area, otherwise he should inform me in advance to check if we agreed with the construction condition before we signed the contract and made the full payment (the construction should be started few weeks before our contract signing). I was so disappointed when he told me “ We informed you when you were in the bus to this place”. He gave us no choice, he informed us on the bus and it was too late for us to change anything (payment was already made).

Dear Ms. Phuong D,

First of all, we would like to thank you for your comments. We are a small homestay in this area and our vision is based on nature, what we are doing is to develop tourism to limit people’s impact on the environment , to restrict hunting animals, to make better villages, safer food, to give children opportunities to learn English with foreigners.
We’ve brought to your group warmth meals, BBQ dinner with good food that had good comments from other members in your group. Besides, breakfast with many kinds of countryside cakes reminds us about the childhood , the village that many people wish to experience this memory one more time.
Trekking: Due to the average age of your group ( 27-61 years old ) and this season is very hot so that we had to make the trekking schedule shorter to be suitable with your group’s health and your request to enjoy the sunset on Tri An lake – an amazing view in this area. About the games, most of members was excited to join them except you so you might feel it was boring because you didn’t want to join people. Because of finishing the trek early so we served your group suger cane juice and fruit which are not supposed to be served in the tour and members were happy to enjoy it.
Although we are building a new house next to homestay but we’ve informed you in advance so there was no any workers or machines on the day you arrived and the homestay was all cleaned for your group.

We also gave you fans which were working well and we did not get any notices from your group about the broken fan so that we could fix it.
On the next day’s morning, there was a meeting of your group but there was also a serious problems that needed to be fix in construction site so we let the excavator worked for only 30 minutes and when you requested to stop, we stopped it immediately.
Also the construction site and homestay are seperated areas. In addtition, we informed our workers stop working while you visit so we inform you on the bus was our fault.
We are the only homestay spot in the area, with an orientation and good social impact for local and visitors for over 3 years of operation. It is therefore no coincidence we are rated 4-5 stars from domestic and foreign visitors on all prestigious travel websites and fanpage.
The only thing we get feedback from members during the trip is the short trekking route , people experience is not enough and the weather in this season is too hot to affect everyone's health (that's the reason we wanted to shorten the trekking route so that people can have good health and time to watch the sunset - one of the beautiful scenery of Tri An Lake). By the end of trekking early, we were able to serve more sugarcane and fruit juice to the group (outside the program) and enjoy the fun. You also knows, it is due to natural weather, after the heat is the cool rain, the air was cooler than the day you arrived.
We are the only homestay spot in the area, with an orientation and good social impact for local and visitors for over 3 years of operation. It is therefore no coincidence we are rated 4-5 stars from domestic and foreign visitors on all prestigious travel websites and fanpage.
With all the things we have mentioned, we find that all our efforts have not been recorded and that you are completely against the assessment of the members of your group so we are very sorry for your purpose. .
Could you find any place where you and your team members enjoy extra services, eat fruits (prunes, mangos, jackfruit, toads ...) without any extra charges? We think that the life of man is now directed to the good and the happiness. Happiness is considered a long journey and is considered the ultimate goal of human life. So if there are times when you or people will be unhappy, then we can work together to build a more loving and loving life.
Also the smell of kitchen smoke, fire smoke suspiciously, rice fire crumpled with iron pots, vials or slime or things that cause you "uncomfortable" surely it is also valuable, "specialties" For those who are away from home for a long time and want to find it again. There are Vietnamese people who live away from home, there are customers from Hanoi flying here just to enjoy the things that upset you, because that is the real homestay. It's not the service with the industrial smile or the isolated rooms, closed the door without anyone bothering, we really did not match. There is a Vietnamese lady who lives abroad when eating rice to see the pot hung steamed, she took it on her face and laughed pleasantly, she said it was her childhood, her parents' family extreme force that more than 30 This year she met it in Ba Dat Homestay. It is beautiful but colorful and beautiful, therefore, she brought her son to let him experience it. Therefore, we have the evaluation of foreigners that: "This is the real Vietnam that we want to know"
Once again we sincerely apologize to you for what is not right for you, we will acknowledge seriously about this.
Wish you always happier and more successful in life

“Awesome”
Reviewed February 1, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Great location with good service, the host is super friendly and helpful. Highly recommended for a 2-3 day trip. We arrived Ba Dat homestay for our Tet vacation escape out of the hustle city of Saigon and it was such a great treat for 4 of us. Love the vibe of a tranquil countryside and the trek into the wood was awesome. All dogs are friendly too and well-behaved. Definitely come back some time.

“True local experience”
Reviewed January 2, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Ba Dat Homestay, by accident I got here for weekend. The owner, Hieu Nguyen is a young explorer, with nonstop passion discovering his area till he was a little boy. When grew up, he was fighting to destroy then rebuild his house, turning to woody house and named after his Mother name, Ba Dat Homestay. With his childhood experience and passion, there is no one on earth understanding this area more than he does. Be his guests, and he will take you go through every hill, forest, mountain or river and get unforgetable memories in a true local life. If you are addicted of biking, hiking, trekking and love travelling with real local, you would love this place and would find the amazing stories to bring back home to remember Vietnam as it is.

“Lovely”
Reviewed November 25, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

What a relief to arrive here by night after the busy city of Saigon. We had a really good diner served when we arrived. I enjoyed that everything was made by the owner.
We were lucky to be the only two guests so we head the whole beautifull room by ourselves. I love how the light came in trough the pieces of bamboo.

“Lovely and simple set up out of the classic spoiled tourists areas”
Reviewed March 8, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We went there for a mountain bike trip. Nice trails in the country side. Nice guide (Hieu).
Lunch was like sitting in a local family with Hieu's mother cooking. 90 minutes drive from HCMC center.
They also do bird watching.
If you want a real insight on Vietnam, try it.
