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

The rooms were clean, wifi great, beds and pillows/blankets comfy, AC, fans, great service (thanks to the guys at the front desk for helping me work out my travel crisis!), friendly atmosphere, hot showers- great stay! Wish it could've been longer. Love Cat Ba! Best value on island at $5!

I arrived here, but found out that I had forgotten my passport in Hanoi. But no worries at all, the reception instantly called the place I stayed in Hanoi and everything was sorted out after some minutes. I don't know why some people here complain about the rooms, but I find them very nice. Aircon is working perfectly, the beds... More

We had a really great stay at the Catba Hostel. From the moment we arrived the owner and all his staff were really friendly and attentive. Our room was spacious and really comfortable which was suprising as we had paid so little for it! We decided to extend our stay here for 2 more days as we really liked the... More
