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

Clean dorm room and hostel. Well air conditioned and acceptable wash and WC area. Friendly staff with lots of advice on what to do and where to go. Huge almost double size bunk beds comfortable with safe lock boxes beneath. Right on the backpacker strip. Recommended

The roomcleaners STEAL your belongings. 2 phones got stolen while we were sleeping in the room by the cleaners! Ridiculous, never seen anything like this in entire Asia! Do not go there! Please do yourself a favor and get yourself a better place. On top of that, motorbikedrivers are watching backpackers who move in the hostel to try and mug... More

4 of us stayed here 3 nights in a 4 person "family room." There was 1 functioning outlet in the room, high on the wall with nothing under it to hold what you are charging. There were zero hooks in the bedroom/bathroom to hang things on (towels, bathing suits, clothes). The included breakfast was alright, but nothing to rave about.... More

The location of this hostel is good, only a two minute walk from the bars in the area. Mostly it is clean although there are way two many people sharing a bathroom and a toilet and the mixed 6 bed dorm that we stayed in was very cramped and reminded us a little of a prison cell.

Located in a great spot in Nha Trang, on the main backpackers street so within walking distance to all bars and restaurants. It was also a 5 min walk to the beach which was great. The bathroom was a bit strange, with the shower being in the same space as the toliet, meaning once a shower was had, the whole... More
