The hostel in a great location so u don't have to walk for more than a few minutes to find somewhere great to eat, enjoy night. The room is very nice and clean. The girl at the reception was very friendly and helpful. Although she worked overnight but not difficult to see her smile in next morning. They have 2... More

The staff here are lovely and very helpful. The rooms are very spacious and clean, as well as being cleaned daily. You get a fresh towel every day. Air conditioning is controlled manually which is a plus. One (very clean and spacious) bathroom per room. Basic but satisfying breakfast included, as well as wifi (tends to be unreliable). Free beer... More

The hostel is well located near most of the major sights and markets. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The dorms are very clean and well kept though on the small side. The room was hot despite the best efforts of the air conditioning. Breakfast was good and served early.

The bed was very very hard. The mattress was on a wooden board. Good area to hire tours and near the market. Breakfast consists of a drink (coffee, milk, water), a sandwich or toast and egg different forms. Dining area is very small. The hotel is located in an alley, very near to the the bus station and a market.... More

The room is modern and really well taken care of with A/C and lockers for each person. The bed was comfortable, at least for me cause I... More

We visited this hostel in January 2016. Rooms are very clean, beds have enough space, there is enough space for backpacks and personal belongings, there is a locker for every person in 6 person dorm. Personal is very helpful, they book us train tickets for later travel.

We recently stayed here during our trip to Vietnam/Cambodia. Getting There: Catch either a Mai Linh or a Vinasun taxi (restrain from catching any other as they can be dodgy) from the airport. Should cost you about 120 - 130,000 dong (8 USD max). It's situated in a small alleyway by the markets. I rate Phan Anh as the best... More
