This is a great value little place. I haven't stayed in any other hostels in Vietnam but compared to the hostels in South America and compared even to some little hotels I've stayed in in Vietnam, this place is great.
The rooms are spacious, airy, bright and clean. The bathroom is fully equipped with nice hot showers. The staff are really helpful and immediately sorted me out with a bus to Hoi An.
In the evenings there's free beer, and a restaurant serving western and Vietnamese food all day. There is loud music playing all day though, which makes the place noisy if you want to sleep at night. As with everywhere in Vietnam, you will need ear plugs, and don't stay here if you don't like loud music at night! Great for party animals though.
The breakfast is fairly decent - there's a menu with loads of different things and different prices, and they tell you it's free for people staying in the hotel, but it's not clear what you're entitled to. I got a plate of fruit and a baguette with a cheese triangle and a coffee, but when I asked for a second cheese triangle they said I'd have to pay!
Finally, I saw a massive rat on the street just outside the hotel where there are some tables and chairs for the restaurant. (Ie if you'd been sitting at that table you'd have had a rat at your feet). Bit gross, but it wasn't actually IN the hotel, and the guy took the opportunity to kill it with a broom...
What can I say?!
Anyway, this place is still pretty clean inside and I would totally recommend it for young backpackers but not necessarily for families. The staff are very sociable too. And the Take Japanese restaurant next door is brilliant.
