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

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
