I rented the private room for 5 $ a night, basic room with two beds and a tv, very small bathroom. I used my own towel as the ones they provided didnt look clean. Aircon broken but they did have a fan. Big bed with comfy doona. All in all quite basic but good room and location for the price.

We stayed for 3 nights at Cat Ba Hostel in the 6 bed mixed dorm which only cost us £1.70 per night! The room is very basic with an en suit but for that price we really couldn't complain. As the days went on we stayed there we felt more and more welcomed. There is a family who run the... More

A nice spot up from the main strip, lovely staff, clean basic room. Wifi and computers available free of charge. I recommend it. They can arrange trips and bus tickets too, the day trip to Halong Bay is well worth it.

For what you pay, this place is worth it. Free WiFi, TV and air con room. It's a little rough around the edges but it is clean. The hostel has computers in reception to use and you can also ask for printing. The owners are nice, they will try and get you to book excursions etc through them, like anywhere... More

Cat Ba Hostel is a great hostel for budget travellers. I stayed here at the start of July with a friend and had a brilliant time, the staff were fairly friendly, we had our clothes washed which was done within a day. Stayed here for around 5 nights. *UP HILL*

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
