“superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

I just spent 4 nights in this little gem. I couldn't have asked for more out of my stay.
The room was very clean and spacious, the staff was so helpful and made you feel right at home from the start, the location is perfect because it's almost half way between town and the beach.
You also get a free bicycle to roam around.
I can't recommend it enough.

Room Tip: it's a very quiet area so any room should do.

This place is a Gem. It is new and the owners of the place are lovely, Tuy receptionist of the place was so helpful and always making you feel like home. The location is great as it is outside of the old city but they have free bicycles and it takes less than 5 minutes, also the beach is not too far away probably 15 minutes ride. The rooms are big and clean. We stayed in the place for 3 nights and we move for a nigth to another place and we really regreted. If you want a backpacker place this is not for you but if you just want to relax and enjoy a great breakfast stay here

Booked through Agoda and got the price of £10 per night. For that we got a double room, with a safe, ensuite bathroom, excellent wifi and free bicycles to take to town. It's located a little far away from the old city to walk in the gruelling Vietnam sun, but the bicycles make it perfect. Nice and quiet at night with air con. Just don't buy bus tickets from here, they are twice the price of shops in town.

My friend and I stayed at the Starfruit Homestay for three nights while visting Hoi An. Overall a pleasant experience, and a great deal, but it wasn’t without some hiccups.

When we arrived, we were taken to a room that had one bed. I had confirmed multiple times (by email) that we needed a room with two beds. So they moved us to another room – fine. But the next morning at breakfast, they told us they needed us to move to yet another room, because the one we were in was reserved for someone else. What?! We acquiesced because it was easier than arguing and in the grand scheme of things, not a big deal, but it was annoying.

Other than that, it was pretty smooth. The rooms are clean and new and comfortable, and the AC units work well. The bathroom setups are a little strange, but nothing that can’t be easily dealt with. This place is in a residential neighborhood, and about a 20-minute walk from the historic area, which is where everything is. But they have bikes that they offer free of charge, and one day we took bikes and rode around town, and it was very nice. Plus a tai to the historic area costs about a dollar, so it’s a very viable option to just use cabs.

The included breakfast is simple, but quite good. And the service was wonderful – the family that owns and runs this place obviously cares about the guests being comfortable and pleased, and we enjoyed every interaction we had with them.

We stayed for 4 nights at starfruit homestay in hoi an and had a wonderful time. The family was very kind and helpful and did everything, to make our stay comfortable. There are different options for breakfast, we had pancakes, fruit and the omelett, which was all very tasty! We had an big room with a double bed, bath included in the room and a separate privat toilet. The furniture was all new and very pretty in asian style, made of wood. The room was absolutely clean, what we enjoyed very much after a long dirty train trip. We slept well, noises from outside were less and are not disturbing. The homestay is near the center of the city, 10-15 minutes to walk to the old city. The homestay lends bic's for free. All in all, we could absolutely recommend this homestay, because we had a very good stay in a modern pretty, very clean room with good breakfast and very friendly and hopeful staff!!!

I can't talk highly enough of this place, from the minute I walked in the door the staff wanted to help my every need. The building is clean, bright and very modern with hotel like rooms. It's five minutes bike into town and free bikes are provided, easy access and quiet!
The girls Thi and Ty looked after me like family, showing me the best tours, where to eat, cooking classes and even a spot of karaoke!!
I ended up staying longer and felt like one of the family when I left! Great place, great staff, highly recommended, thank you star fruit :-)

My son and I stayed here for four nights and enjoyed it very much. We stayed in a twin room with balcony and it was lovely with plenty of space, a safe, and fridge. Having a bath was lovely as it was so hot during our stay there. B'fast was fantastic as were the front girls. It's not in the centre of town but that meant it was quiet and only minutes away on the free bikes. A great choice for people staying in Hoi An.
