As a backpacker i found this place perfect. I was suppose to stay 1 or 2 night but the island is a very nice place to stay, to chill and this hostel do a perfect home during that. All the other Hostels (more than twice the price at the moment) offer the same service if less. Towel, soap, clean dorm... More

I really liked this hostel and stayed for 2 weeks! The staff are friendly but not "too" friendly or constantly trying to sell you tours which I love! We rented really good bikes off them about 4 different days and they even helped us out with petrol one day we were going to beach! Never had any problems, the lockers... More

The hostel offers few excursions but let you free of your choice (a lot of propositions in Cat Ba. Clean place, good advice and good price could be a good resume about this place... More

This hostel met perfectly with what I was expecting. It is not located directly on the main street but not far either. It was quiet, welcoming and staff are very friendly and helpful. I stayed in the dorm where I was pleased with their installations. A/C, each bed has its fan, its reading light and the mattress are comfortable. Plus... More

We stayed in a 6 bed dorm room which was the perfect size room for a 4 bed but they'd squeezed 6 beds in there. This meant that I had a fellow guests feet overhanging their bed and intruding into my face. It also meant there was little to no room for everyone's backpacks. As the beds are touching and... More

This is a great place to stay on a beautiful island. The rooms were bright, spacious & airy and only a short walk from the harbour. The staff gave us some brilliant options for things to do during the day. Zipping around the island on scooters was definitely a highlight and very cheap to rent too! We also chartered a... More
