great hostel- the staff and food were both amazing! Josh was particularly helpful. Absolutely love the work they do with the local orphanage and really enjoyed our day visiting and playing with the kids. The only problem we had was the room. We paid for a private room and were given a weird three bed dorm to ourselves. We aren't... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in a private twin room and we loved it. What made it for us was the really friendly and helpful staff, particularly Aaron & Zach. They gave us lots of advice and suggestions on what to do in Hue and were always at hand to help. The hostel has a great bar/social area which... More

Couldn't recommend this backpackers highly enough. Stayed end of May 2015 with a friend. We were travelling and very pleased to find this little gem. The staff are amazingly friendly, full of knowledge and very helpful. Couldn't recommend this company enough - stayed in several of their hostels now.

A chiller vibe, helpful staff and cool people. But what is up with their cleaning policy?! A cleaner will burst in and start sweeping the floor at 8am and will return periodically throughout the day giving you no peace.

Everything is perfect but for some reason the AC didn't work well in the night. And there are few things in life I hate as much as an overheated dorm. Staff and everything else is nice, great party and cheap beer. Location is also uncomplainable.

We took motorbikes from Hoi An to Hue and it took us 8 hours. We arrived at Hue Backpackers absolutely shattered from the journey and they immediately gave us all a cold bottle of beer and checked us straight in. Incredibly friendly staff, AMAZING food, comfortable and quiet dorms/rooms and a lovely atmosphere at the bar. They even assisted us... More

Very helpful staff, simple but good food/drinks and fun atmosphere. Stayed in a private room which was very standard but nice. We hired bikes to ride down to Hoi An through the hostel and the staff were very helpful and informative (but not great map readers). Overall a good stay and would recommend to anyone passing through!

Hue backpackers hostel itself is pretty clean and a fun environment to be in. The communal area on the ground floor is pretty cool, plus a really good place to socialise and meet new people. All staff were helpful and friendly and they also had westerners working there which was a bonus. The trip to orphanage organised by the hostel... More
