We arrived in Cat ba without any plans, bumped into this hostel, and we were not disappointed about it!! Chilling place, just a few minutes walking from the center so very quiet at night but still close to everything. The rooms are clean, comfy enough, and you have terrace on each floor next to the private rooms, but open to... More

Stayed here for 2 nights-from looking around Cat Ba Island and the other accommodation available you can definitely find somewhere better for the same price or for a fraction more expensive. The air-con does not work very well and the beds were not the most comfortable.

I stayed here with my three friends for a week. It was clean and the location was perfect, only a 10 minute walk to the beach. I though the staff was friendly and helpful. They helped us arrange day trips and activities to get the most out of our time on the island.

We had booked 3 nights here booking far in advance, however on arrival the owner had double booked our room (wanted to make more money with present guests) and forced us to move to a different hotel on the beach front which was horrible. We had to stay there 2 nights without air con or clean rooms and there was... More

We stayed 4 nights at Cat Ba Hostel and really enjoyed it! The owner of the Hostel is very friendly and helpful, along with the whole team. It's probably the cheapest and best accommodation in Cat Ba!

The hostel is not bad. I met a lot of very nice travelers and it's close to the pier and to travel agencies. Apart fron that I didn't have a good feeling about the staff. In this area of vietnam they don't treat customers with much honesty and it can be annoying after a while. For example they ruined my... More

There are dozens of places to stay on Cat Ba, I picked this place based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and I wasn't let down. Only negative points are that in the dorm they seem to turn the AC off in the morning regardless of whether anyone is still in there or not, although there are fans for each bed... More

It was OK, there wasn't hot water and the blanket was a bit smelly, but overall not too bad. The staff is ok and the rooms are just fine. On the positive site, there is an air conditioning and clean towels.
