Well I don't usually enjoy staying in backpackers' hostels and prefer more authentic local hotels, but anyway I have to say that this is a good one. I stayed there with 5 friends of mine, so we got a 6 beds mix dorm which was reasonably big and clean. The balconies are great. Prices are cheap and included you have... More

At the behest of lonely planet we ended up crashing here for what was meant be an evening stop over before Hanoi that turned into four evening fun fest. The hostel itself is clean and cheap full to the brim with some of the funner people you'll meet. The actual area surrounding Hue is not to be missed, to do... More

The hostel offered some great things to do. We went on a bike tour which i highly recommend to anyone! It was amazing. We saw so much and learnt some interesting things too. It definitely gave me a more authentic view of Hue. The guests and the staff in the hostel were lovely people. The hostel was small compared to... More

Nice place, good vibe. Could do with more space but the trips they do are great. The staff were incredibly friendly and fun. The motorbike trip they do is possibly one of the best days riding i have done, very informative and the water park is awesome! Cheers for the good stay just wish you had a little more space!

Having just driven the Hai Van pass in torrential rain a hot shower was needed but never gotten. 3 people travelling together we expected a dorm room or private room with 3 beds, what we were given was a double and a single, in a building across from the hostel. More of an apartment block. The area was slap bang... More

Thank you to rob at the hostel for your help, navigation ideas and for your excellent travelling tips. You turned our great holiday into one that was spectacular. For anyone taking a bike trip anywhere in vietnam my advice is simple- pack for the cold, the wet and for the warmth- happens all in one day, map out your trip... More

Good times here! It's a big hostel with nice rooms and dorms that are clean as well as comfortable! Friendly staff make the stay a lot more enjoyable and the atmosphere is great. Can get a little loud if you want to go to bed earlier though. Free beers are always a bonus too!

The classic place that would give you a "2 for 1" offer on drinks, making you think that you got a good deal. But, the actual price of one single drink is more than double compare to the majority of the the other places in Hue or in Vietnam in general. Example: The price for a Huda beer is normally... More

Dear traveller, I am sorry to hear that you felt we were 'dishonest' and 'overpriced' for your liking but please let me explain why we are not... We sell 355ml beers for 20,000d and larger 450ml beers for 25,000d... That's about 60p and 74p a bottle. The price difference you have mentioned of 10,000d to 13,000d is just 29 to... More

Love these backpacker hostels, also one in Hoi an and Hanoi (the bull symbol). There were nightly events, free drinks and games too. Comfy beds but a little loud with the bars nearby. Great staff! So welcoming!
