This place is probably best for young travellers who want to go out and get legless every night. Pros: sweet local staff, social environment, fairly clean, nice balcony area, included breakfast is decent. Cons: wifi is slower than how I remember it in the year 1999 - almost no signal in the room, had to pay extra for parking my... More

We went there with a group of 5 friends and loved the stay, mostly for the very social atmosphere - quite rare in Vietnam. The cooking class they offer was also amazing, and the bar in the evenings is a good deal. For other activities (motorbike in particular) as well as for breakfast, I would definitely recommend travelers to go... More

We didn't actually stay here but we did spend a couple of great nights in the bar. There is also the facility to print things off flight itineray etc if you ask at the reception desk. There is plenty going on in the bar. Quiz nights fancy dress etc and plenty of happy hours and free shots. The guys and... More

Backpacker's paradise. The staff are so friendly and I met some great people there. Zach's rural village tour that I did last Tuesday was definitely the highlight. Although it would have been good to remember the names of everyone who went on it so we could share our photos!

Stayed here with 3 friends for 3 nights. We stayed in a 14 bed dorm but it was very tight for space and only one bathroom between 14. The hostel itself is in a great location and they offer 3 options for the free breakfast included 1. Eggs with bread, 2. Banana pancakes, 3. Fresh fruit. The bar does good... More

Although part of the backpackers chain the hostel wasn't too loud, except for the New Zealanders staying in a different room. I stayed in a female dorm with app. 12 beds. A bit too much considering the fact that there was only one shower. The showers downstairs are a bit cramped, but certainly useful when you arrive before check in.... More

Hi Dalia S, Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to leave a review regarding your experiences. The female dorm is a 10 bed dorm as per advertisement. We are also an older building in Hue and because of this we are limited to the original design meaning we are stuck with only 1 shower and... More

I was passing by the hostel to wait for my friend who was actually staying there and had discovered such a wonderful place with excellent service. Ms Dung who works at the bar came and talked to me in a very natural way when we had breakfast. After a little conversation, she has "detected" my taste immediately and gave me... More

Stayed in a double bed in a dorm with 14 beds. The room was small for the amount of people and only had one shower and toilet which was not good. The air conditioning was basically non existent so the nights were uncomfortably warm. The breakfast was good with a choice of 3 options. Very good place to meet other... More

we walked from train station down through Hue and needed a pit stop so we stopped at Hue's backpacking hostel for food. Ais had been here previously and knew the food was good. I had veggie burger and chips which was great and reasonably priced loved Vietnamese food but nice to get western food every now and again
