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

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

We stayed here two nights in one of the dorms, and this place had everything we needed. Clean (perhaps the cleanest at any hostel in Vietnam yet) showers, crisp soft white bedding, a really wonderful social space, a good breakfast, a travel agency, and a central location with motorbike rentals immediately outside. Some of the staff were sometimes brittle to... More

Although there's no air-conditioning the hotel is brand new and very clean. Furthermore the atmosphere is great for backpackers. With it being at a very affordable price I would suggest this hotel above others in sapa! The hotel truly boasts a mountain view as it overlooks the amazing scenery which sapa provides, this coupled with the exceptional amenities and friendly... More
