We stayed there for one night. Everything was correct and cheap. Breakfast was fine and the stuff is nice. They offer many activities to do. You can rent a motorbike for the whole day for only 3-4 USD. The trekking was expensive and not as espectacular as they say. But in general, good place to stay

Firstly the positives - great view of the surrounding mountains and scenery, seriously it's stunning. The free breakfast is good with toast, fruit and an omelette station. The dorm rooms are big and the beds pretty comfy. But the power cuts out ALL the time, we couldn't understand this as the other surrounding hotels and restaurants had power? Also the... More

Moved to Mountain View as my hotel was a bit far away. The staff is nice enough, but forget about waking up fresh and ready to trek if you sleep under the main floor. I could hear everything from above in my room and in the hall ways. Walls are paper thin and in the morning they start turning over... More

Our stay at mountain view made our visit to sapa. The chill out area is fab and the staff were great fun so spent our night drinking and chatting with them. They advised us to get bikes and head up through the mountains to the waterfalls, a must do! The dorms were clean and the bathrooms were well equipped. The... More

I arrived from Hanoi with the night bus at 6 am. I booked with the hotel of the same chain. There were no taxi to drive me at the hostel. I had to do by my self. At the hostel they had kept my passport. It's a scandal. I need it because it's my ID card. Then I had to... More

Hello Thanks for your feedback. I'm a little unsure of the service you were provided. Our check in time is 1pm as our checkout time is 11am & then our housekeeping need to change over all of our rooms. There is amazing chillout area in the main common area which is used all day everyday. We are sorry you didn't... More

Like many say this hostel has potential but it's not yet up to the standard of others in the chain. It seems both the building and staff aren't equipped yet to handle so many backpackers. I did feel they were only after your money and not really interested in making your stay a memorable one. Many more negatives than positives... More

Not the best of this chain, but is nice speacially because of the common area. The rooms were ok, but they need some renovation. Internet is good, breakfast is also alright and the staff in my opinion was friendly. The thing I don´t like is them keeping my passport until check out. My passport is my ID so I should... More

We had a lot of problems here with checking in. When you pay a lot for a night, I expect some better service. Not dirty rooms, rooms smells bad and the people behind the reception are unfriendly. The shower self is great. I can't understand why a hostel with this great name, ask for a fee when you borrowing a... More

The hostel has a friendly up beat atmosphere with a welcoming down stairs chill space and fluffy carpets to lay on. However the door to our room wouldn't lock and would just open on its own (even when we weren't there), hard springs in the mattress, basically no wifi, tv didnt work in the room, hot water cut out and...

A little bit more expensive than other hostels in sapa you are paying for the social atmosphere of the Vietnam Backpackers chain. The hostel itself is very nice (formerly a hotel) but what makes it so good is the social aspect. A great happy hour led by an awesome staff as well as drink specials and bar crawls made me... More
