Good hostel, friendly staff and good price-quality ratio. We paid 3 USD/person for a three-person bedroom with private bedroom. We wouldn't recommend buying an open bus ticket at this hostel though. We got one from Michael Tran tours and had a lot of trouble with this company. Our first journey was from Cat Ba to Ninh Binh. One day after... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in a double room. The room is nothing fancy but good & clean, we also had a nice balcony & big window. For 6$ a night it's definitely good value. They also have a restaurant & computers downstairs. The place is located 5 mins. Walk from the center so it's quiet at nights. But... More

I found this place to be very quired, and close to the city center of Cat Ba, however. I got very delicious traditional Vietnamese food, and their vietnamese tea is great! Furthermore they had all I needed with regards to trips and information, and the prices was the cheapest I could find in the city. Furthermore the staff was very... More

Good hostel, bit away from the noise. Rooms are super-cheap, clean and big. Be careful with agreements on the roomrate. I saw better rates offered online but they were not willing to give me these rates. Since I didn't want to argue about some dollarcents I've accepted the room anyway, but it made it look an unreliable company. It made... More

We came here during the low season and got a big room with two double beds for an absolute steal (about 5 USD per night). The beds were comfy and the blanket warm enough for the cooler Cat Ba months. The staff were very friendly and helpful (I even overheard them one night checking on one of the other guests,... More

I stayed here in January (when it was really cold, even though it was sunny) and absolutely loved it. I adore the island and this place was a real gem - the owners are the friendliest I have met so far and welcomed us with tea and gave us extra blankets as soon as they heard we were cold at... More

Easy to find, though a walk uphill from the bus stop. small narrow place but has everything you'd need with tours/ travel arranged, restaurant in the lobby, wifi, friendly helpful owner, quiet (in December) atmosphere and large clean rooms. bathroom / shower perhaps the only downside, shower not v powerful. in general, great value and recommended

I've just come back from my wonderful trip to Cat Ba - a nice island in Northern Vietnam. The trip goes easy and memorable with every services provided by Cat Ba Hostel. While the hostel's room rate suits every traveller's pockets, all of the rooms are very nice and quite with heated water and free wifi. There are internet-connected computers... More

We've traveled this hotel last year, the staff were friendly and always smiling !! the rooms are clean... You can also rent motobike from the hostel with cheap price to drive arround! The hotel has Visa paygate so you can use Visa or Master card. Totally worth it !!
