It was not a pleasant stay in sapa hostel. The rooms were dirty, the beds were hard and there was almost no water pressure. The biggest problem however, was the noise of the construction site next door. There are plenty of cheap hotels in sapa, you better look for something else.

The only positive point i can think of is the friendly staff. Hostel is dated, dirty and very noisy. They are building next to the hotel, starting at 6 am. Also there is a rooster making a lot of noise from 6 am. As there is only a door with gases, you hear everything very loud. Shower is cold after... More

Okay so I know this a budget hostel but the photos are completely misleading and I've stayed in plenty of budget hostels that manage to do it better. The dorms were dirty, shabby, mouldy and damp. I wasn't given any breakfast despite it being included in the price. The owners were nice, however at night there was ALOT of noise... More

The view alone is phenomenal, the place is spacious, clean and relaxed. Staff are helpful but not annoying. It's two seconds from the middle of town. Can book motorbikes from there - and trust me - don't do Sapa without grabbing a bike and heading up the mountains.

I stayed at the #33 Fanxipan location. The dorms here are awesome! $4 USD a night. Get the room right at the end of the hall. It has an AMAZING view of the valley. Only four beds per room and they are huge, almost double beds and so soft and comfortable. Good quality clean bedding, hot shower, everything clean and... More

I booked a dorm bed. There were three in the room. The room was decently clean, the sheets were fresh. The bathroom was a smelly mess with no ventilation. Breakfast was said to be included, but was not. It was often difficult to find the staff, but when they were available, they were lovely. It seems they were more focused... More

I really loved this hostel. Met some real nice people and the family that runs the place made me feel really at home. They invited me to a free dinner one night which was absolutely delicious. Real nice place. I would highly recommend. Thanks for everything!

I had not orginially intended to stay here, but I'm so glad I did. I stayed in the dorm, which was basic but clean and comfortable. The hotel grounds are pleasant, and in a good location close (but not too close) to town. Bathroom was clean, with hot water. When I was there (May) it was fairly quiet, easy to... More

Stayed here for a night* in chilly late December 2013, nice hostel! Good location w/hot shower and well w/in a 5-min walk from city-center roundabout… The lady hotel owner was real nice and friendly, and she even prepped an electric blanket in my bed (life-saver!) prior to my arrival. Felt v. safe and secure staying here; the dog truly guarded... More
