“Average with limited free wifi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2011

s/d 60k Kip in Aug

room: seemed clean, attached bathroom / hot shower / western toilet, blankets, towel (but it seems you need to ask for it when arriving), soap, toilet paper, fan, mosquito net on windows, ?optional A/C, free wifi (captive portal with individual login/pass, no key, seems filtered - no ssh, torrent app crashing/blocked & very slow & uptime limit 12h ... - others outside wifi networks could be accessible and better), power outlet (1 + 2 in bathroom), power on key (no electricity when out ... can't recharge battery during day), trashbin, window on wall (but common at this price), bus/visa service, laundry 10k/kg, checkout 12h
last, it seems the water circuit is cut during the night (early morning, I had to ask reception to get a shower; probably because of some water leakage)

probably better to move to 70-80k/night range

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2011

Youth Inn 2 is the newer branch of Youth Inn up the road. Rooms are cheap at 80k kip. Its good enough if you're staying a night or two. More than that, choose a nicer place for 10-20k more. Bedroom appliances and furniture are breaking down. The toilets. the owner was too cheapskate to put in exhaust fans and so you have serious mould on the upper walls. Free wifi yes, but you have to get a user name and password which is recycled with the original account at 6 hours only. Connection is iffy also. Don't buy the sleep bus to Hanoi from here as they're charging 300k, 100k more than the bus station. Look around for better deals. there's a 7/11 type mart round the corner from the other Youth Inn

Room Tip: The 01 and 02 rooms have windows facing front.
