In the morning I kindly asked again but they refused because than I would spread the problem. Basically saying I should leave in stead... More

What sets this hostel apart from many others is the wide range of free offerings and services, including Internet access, WiFi, AC, lockers, towel service, green tea, beer, and travel consulting. You must also like the cleanliness throughout all areas with really hot showers. The staff was always very friendly, honest and helpful. They let me use their business phone... More

Awesome backpacker hotel, super friendly and helpful staff members, good facilities and all of that right in the old quarter. We had a private room which was lovely and huge. It's also a great place to meet other travellers and have a good time. Recommended!

We stayed there for 2 nights in a private room and the location of this hostel is top, right in the centre of Hoi An. Rooms were ok, with everything that you need, although things might look a bit old and worn. Staff was friendly and we booked train tickets, bus tickets and Halong Bay tour with them. They seemed...

Location perfect as it's only a short walk to all the sites! We were given a really big and helpful map, and "cuong" was really... More
