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

I stayed at this hostel for 10 days, and every day I became more fond of the place. The staff is very courteous and helpful, and we became friends as the week went on.The dorm room is great, there is a fan right next to your head so its easy to stay out of the heat, and I met lots... 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.

We stayed here for one night back in March. We were on a quick trip round Vietnam so didn't have time to stay longer but would recommend at least two nights. The hostel is slightly up the hill away from the seafront but no more than a 5 minute walk away. It is quite a steep hill so if you're... More

Me and my boyfriend spent 4 nights here in a private room. The rooms are basic, though the beds are a bit hard, but all not bad for the price. Its situated up the hill a little but only 3/5 minute walk down to the sea front where there are lots of restaurants and a main bar. We also had... More

As I wanted to meet other travelers I choose a hostel to stay in. The dorm room was very basic and quite small though there was a luggage room attached. Two out of four bunk beds were attached to each other, with a curtain dividing you from your neighbour: not much privacy.. Lockers are available in the room and staff... More
