Myself and the girlfriend had the opportunity to stay two nights at Backpackers. Our first night was in a private room. Second night was in the shared bunk since the rooms were booked. Rachel the temp manager was very kind upon arrival and throughout our stay. Although she definitely works too many hours.
Overall a nice place was nice and we had a great stay. It was a bit pricey for Vietnam standards but understandably with a western run place in a good part of town.
The one major complaint is in regards to the dorms and lack of air-con/fan. The air con is only on for the night time and shuts off around 8am? I woke up extremely hot with no fan or air con option. This also removes the option for a mid day nap. It is an excuse to get outside but sometimes it's nice to break inside for part of theday especially when prices are closer to western prices. My recommendation for Backpackers is to spend a few dollars for a fan in the dorms.
The private room was great! On the water with round the clock air condiioning.

Mui Ne Backpackers has long been recommended by Lonely Planet and other reliable travel guides. ... more less
