Stayed here for 2nights and really enjoyed my stay! Staff is genuinely friendly and there's a very laidback atmosphere. Location, pool and bar are all nice. One negative remark though: every bed has a personal fan, but most weren't working when we were there. Therefore it was just really hot in the dorm rooms.

I arrived to the Gecko by chance (I was staying somewhere else in Hoi An) to have a cold beer and my trip to Vietnam was over, because I stayed there for the entire week I had left (private room, aircon included). The place is located on the other bank of the river so you get this amazing view of... More

I stayed here for four nights after a few nights at the Sunflower and really enjoyed my stay here. It's a completely different vibe, very chilled and laid-back. The staff are a million times more friendlier and hospitable than those at the Sunflower. It is a lovely family, close-knit atmosphere. None of that alcoholic fuelled rowdiness that some hostels are... More

Stayed here for 5 nights. Really nice hostel with honest and helpful staff. There's a pool table, swimming pool, and plenty of interesting other backpackers to have a chat with. Staying here enhances your time in Hoi An. Highly recommended!

I stayed here for 3 nights in the mixed dorm, as a solo traveller. The facilities were basic, which was fine for me. The best part was the location and the atmosphere. It's a beautiful location, it's away from the busier parts of Hoi An, but definitely within walking distance to most places (bikes are readily available at the hostel... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, great decision! Welcomed by the super friendly staff and offered a cold drink on the house. Had an upstairs room which was really big, great shower, clean. They have a great spot for chilling out as well as a pool table, fully stocked affordable bar, good menu if you don't feel like going out to... More

The best thing about this place is the relaxed and very friendly atmosphere. Everyone goes out of their way to help with planning trips and travel tips, and in getting anything you need during your stay. Super chill bar, good breakfast, good people. Only downside for us was the woodworking shop next door which starts drilling, sawing each morning, even... More

As a solo backpacker finding budget dorm rooms in Hoi Anh are are few and far between which is why I was very happy to stumble across this place. Perfect location, great views and friendly staff. The owner Steve is actually British (not Australian) and is a great laugh. Dorm room is big, comfortable enough and clean. The bathrooms leave... More

The dorm room was 7 bucks a night, there was a nice bar/ restaurant that was on the first floor. what I was really surprised about was the shower... this was the best shower i have used in Asia, giant shower head, hot water, and good water...

I was in Hoi An for a month staying in hotels which where eating away at my budget, I came across the sleepy gecko just by chance and they offered dorms for 7 USD a night which included breakfast. This was by far the cheapest place to stay in Hoi An and the best atmosphere I found. The food was... More
