I'll preface this with a bit of information - there are almost NO other places in Mui Ne that offer dorms. The town is simply not equipped for backpackers (yet), so Mui Ne Backpackers has a heavy burden to carry. Upon my arrival, they had no rooms available, and the owner was apologetic but clearly tired of telling people he had no rooms available. In fairness, it's not his fault I didn't book in advance. He was nice enough to let me use the wifi there, and I eventually ended up booking a night when they had room in the dorms.
The rooms have good-sized lockers (with strict but purposeful rules about where you can place your bag at any time), clean bathrooms, and decent beds. There was nothing much that really wowed me, though, until I went back to the lounge area. Overlooking the ocean, there are great sunbeds with umbrellas for your enjoyment, which ended up being ideal for reading on a lazy day. There is a pool (although who needs a pool when the ocean is 30 steps away?), and the building seems to be maintained well.
If you're a backpacker and you're stopping in Mui Ne, ...well, the name of the place says it all. I can recommend staying here.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Mui Ne Backpackers was one of the first guesthouses to open in Mui Ne, back when Mui Ne was a little-known coconut grove with a few woven huts along the beach. From those early days until now, this family-run property has been one of the most popular budget alternatives to the big resorts that have popped up along the main road. Mui Ne Backpackers has long been recommended by Lonely Planet and other reliable travel guides. ... more less
