“not bad considering hoi an is ridiculously expensive!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

I spent 1hr asking around for less than 10 dol but that was impossible to find! I spent 5 nights in a 4 dollar tiny room under the roof, so cheap for me was good, it had even a tv! The big con was because it was top floor it was very hot! But still better than the dorm! They even have a 3 dol room that hold just a single bed! Not even room for backpack! Service was good, they changed bedding-towel everyday and it's a busy hotel so showers managed to stay clean, internet easily available, cheap water, friendly staff,good location, safe area. I woUld go back but maybe in a cooler room!

Room Tip: Top floor is cheap but hot! Avoid dorms

The hotel looks like it needs maintenance. The room was old and not the cleanest. I felt I could find a better place with the money I paid. Breakfast was not included.
I found ants and cockroaches in my room.
Location was good. Only some staff were friendly and helpful.
I wouldn't stay here again.

Spent there 2 nights this march. I was walking from a bus station down the Hai Ba Trung road and all guesthouses were quite pricey, then someone showed me this place, i had no idea it was mentioned in Lonely planet, which is usually sign that prices go up and quality down. I was shown a single room with shared bathroom for 7$ and dorm for 5$, then there is also a very very small room (just bed fits in) for 4$, it was occupied tho. The 3 bed dorm that i stayed in was at top floor (ants everywhere ofcourse. ), just a shabby attic room, to fit as many beds as possible into the hotel, but it was quiet and small. Then there are really crowded dorms at first floors, but better room quality..just make sure to see more. Staff ok, didn't care much about guests, but no wonder, when people there, come and go so often. No towel provided, room cleaned every day. Anyway its probably as cheap as it gets during season time in Hoi An.

Room Tip: ask to see more, the rooms vary a lot

Hop Yen is your average hostel, bedrooms are clean and reasonably sized however there were a few ants in our room and the bathroom had some maintenance issues (tiles loose from wall). The price is (as far as I gathered) similar to what you pay in similar hostels nearby. We had no problems with noise in our room. The hostel is a short walk into Hoi An town but it is right opposite loads of cafes which are perfect for breakfast. There's also loads of bike and motorbike hire places right outside. I probably would look for a different hostel if I stayed in Hoi An again but it wasn't bad at all. Desk staff were very helpful.

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor and the stairs were a bit of a trek!

I arrived very late by motorcycle and even though they were full they put me up on a stretcher in the hall. Great people at the desk. It was the end of Tet so the room rates were just plain unreasonable. Get a room facing the quiet street I had unbearably loud badly sung Karaoke vibrating my windows up until 10pm also breakfast wextra.

Room Tip: Get the quiet non karaoke side.

We paid $10 a night for a double room with air conditioning and a hot shower. The hotel was clean enough and the beds are what you would expect for $10 a night. The best thin about the Hop Yen is the location, it is about a five minute walk from the centre of Hoi An. For backpackers its perfect for everyone else i would look elsewhere.

if you are travelling solo, this may be one of the cheapest options in town. but a pair can get a better room elsewhere for about 10$/night. their booking prices were quite inflated too. asking 35$ for an open bus ticket that I got for $22 elsewhere.
