We had a dormitory for 5 people. We were very lucky because we have been there in November so not a lot of people in the city and in the hostel. The receptionist was correct, but they lied about a boat trip they sold us : they didn't tell us that the price was not including all the activities ...... More

Close to the nightlife and a 5 minute walk to the beach. The laundry was very good and cheap which was a bonus but everything from the breakfast to the wifi was horrible. There were ants all over the floor therefore had to keep my bag zipped up which was a hassle

I'm really not fussy and pretty chilled about where I stay but this hostel pushed me to the limit! Shame for some the staff who are really helpful. Ants in my bed (and I mean loads) broken air con, 3 nights and had to request clean towels and toilet paper, plug sockets didn't work, in the dorm there was one... More

Cheap place to stay and the staff are nice. Cleanliness is OK. However the air-conditioning worked but we had no control over it. The bar they own blasts really loud music in the evening so stopped us from going to sleep properly (we were diving so had to wake up at 6:15 everyday). One room we had had a weird... More

Ok customer service, some of them were great, others were not! Some of the workers were very pushy, but many they didn't mean to come off that way, just different culture. They take up your passport, which usually I don't stay at places that do that. They shower was broken 75% of the time. They are very disorganized! They said... More

I can't say nothing about rooms bathroom and beds, because even if we booked in advance on the website, and even if the receptionist found out our reservation number on her daily arrivals plan, once we arrived (8 pm) she has already re-sell the bed to other people that had not reserved, but probably paid more than us. She said... More

At the same time they charged us for breakfast we didn't have, they gave me back the wrong passport. Avoid this place. The laundry was better than we had so far in Vietnam. The shower was poor. My cupboard attached to my bed already had a padlock on which took them several hours to sort out.

Fair price, comfy bed, good shower, good location (good food along the street, and close to beach) and friendly staff. However, beds weren't clean, layout makes no sense with dorm rooms acting as corridors for private rooms, and the bathroom wasn't clean either. Bit of a party hostel, so can be noisy into the late hours, but good for drinking... More

I'd rate this as average rather than poor solely because of the staff, who were friendly and helpful and of great assistance when it came to booking transport. Other than that, the hostel isn't great. The toilets are too few and suffer in terms of cleanliness, the dorms have a fierce strange light that makes it feel like you're getting... More

We arrived pretty late after a 6 hour bus drive and we read about this hostel online. They only had a dorm room left and since we planned on staying just one night it was fine with us. On our way upstairs it was already smelling really bad. The dorm room had rather spacious beds and good airconditioning. My locker... More
