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

We stayed here with our two children aged 13 and 9. The idea was to go low budget for us and it was great value for what we paid. We had a large room connected with another room and private bathroom. Plenty of room for four of us. We slept well except woken early by the rooster crowing. Breakfast was... More

A lovely guest house in a French colonial style sprawling house with an amazing view. The rooms are clean, spacious and good value. Excellent breakfast although it is not included. The guy who works there provided great advice for 'do it yourself' treks around the area and arranged for inexpensive motorcycle rentals.

I stayed in this very conveniently located guesthouse for a week during my stay in Sapa. The rooms are simple but clean and there is a nice little area at the front to lounge around or swing on the hammock. The owner Joseph and his lovely wife can arrange tours and scooter hire upon request and the property contains a... More
