I stayed here for 1 nights in the dorm room. Its quite small for 6 beds but I think I'm okay with that, you can meet lots of cool people who also stay here too. Located in an idea place surrounded by plenty of bars, shops and restaurants and they even have beach access. Its very relaxing to lie on... More

I don't know by this place has so many complaints on the staff. I found John and the other chap at reception friendly and helpful. We were travelling as a couple so had out own room which was very expensive for Vietnam. John mentioned he was going to be opening another place with cheaper rooms and breakfast included so I...

Well run. One of the better options in Mui Ne. Big enough but still cozy. Clean rooms and a nice pool. The Aussie owner is a great guy who gives you excellent service and proper advice. A safe haven in sometimes weird Mui Ne..

We arrived at Mui Ne backpackers after a long 5 hour bus journey from HCMC. The staff were very welcoming and we were shown our room straight away. We had a private double with our own bathroom. The room wasn't the biggest, but it was very clean! It had air conditioning which was very good, and we had a shower... More

When you travel as a backpacker, you probably will take dorm rooms. The dorms here are OK, but the staff is so rude and so annoying. For example: They will turn off the A/C at 9:00, so you will cook out of your bed minutes after that. They come in every 15 minutes to clean a bed or the bathroom... More

We try our best to keep all our rooms clean at all times. We are acutely aware that some travelers may have picked up some nasties on their travels... More

From the outside the resort seems to be a nive place to stay. The terrace is nice and it is also relaxing just to sit around at the pool. The rooms are pretty small, but just about enough. The only downside is the bathroom. We could not lock our bathroom from the inside. It was only possible from the outside.... More

Thank you for writing a review. We apologize for any inconveniences during your stay. When there are any problems that might surface about our rooms we try to attend to the problem immediately. When you arrived back at your room our maintenance man was actually a few feet away replacing the lock. After you alerted us to the issue you... More

It was a good place to meet people, the atmosphere was great and the staff nice. The toilets were smelly and stains on the toiletseats in most of the dorms. You can only access the beach from the hostel early in the morning, later in the day the waves are too big so you have to walk along the street... More

Thank you for your review. It's unfortunate as the toilets are ensuite in the dorm room and if one person makes a smell then it can be an issue. The dorms will be relocated towards the month's end. Our dorm rooms are full year round so I think this reflects the affordability of the property. At this time of year... More

Had the best stay at this hostel. Didn't feel particularly welcomed at first, but the dorm room was really clean and the bathroom had a fairly good hot shower. The pool was a great place to relax and meet the other people, and the hostel were really helpful in planning our bus and tour. Great hostel, would definitely reccommend :)

Ok, this hostel was really nice and clean, but it's quite expensive, even if you consider the fact that you have to ask for toilet paper all the time and than after you went to the toilet you have to bring it back!!! Quite strange... The rooms are good, spacy lockers and good bathrooms and chairs to sunbath at the... More

Dear Karlijn, Thank you for writing a review. You were asked to return the toilet roll from the public toilet because it gets wet when people shower. It seems a fair request. I do not understand how you found me to be moody, I'm somewhat bewildered. I hope you don't run into any more moody people in your future travels. More

Good location at beach, nice and clean rooms, quiet nights, a great place to stay a couple of nights. If you book an additional bed, be aware that they just put a mattress on the floor. A room that's perfectly big for two will then be a bit cramped. The additional prize for the bed is 8$ which we tought... More
