The Hobbit Hostel is a beautiful little place, cheap to stay and very clean and tidy. I stayed in the dorm, I had Air Con, a small balcony and was very comfortable. There is lots to do locally and some great eateries around. Lynn from the hostel is very accommodating, full of life and a lot of fun. The Hobbit...

We booked 2 nights and end up staying another 2. The big dorm is nice, light and spacious with a little balcony. Quite comfy beds with curtains. Everything is nice and clean. Wifi works OK. Lockers in the room + key from the room (even 8 beds dorm) so supper safe! Staff is lovely and helpful. THE BREAKFAST IS JUST...

As a solo female traveller, I can usually take care of myself. But when I arrived in Dalat, I was having an issue and the staff helped me go to the police. I feel so loved and I appreciate this hostel so much. They went above and beyond. Thank you

The hostel is quite basic, but such a bargain. The staff are friendly and attentive. Always there to help. Rooms are clean and the beds are some of the most comfiest ones I had over my one months stay in Vietnam. Good location, short walk from all you need. A little tricky too find tho, as its in an alley...

Having arrived 4 hours earlier then expected on a sleeper bus from Saigon, we saw that hobbit had both free pick up and 24hour check in! Rooms are clean and facilities are great. Includes a book exchange, breakfast and wifi.

This was one of the best hostels we have stayed at, (I have been travelling for nearly 4 years now). The manager took us to a very special barbecue restaurant that served Ostrich and Crocodile. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast every morning was delicious. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff will help you find...

This place really makes you feel like you are at home. Movies to watch free breakfast and coffee touch up throughout the day. Was a super lovely experience. However the address has changed and it is in a new spot. This was confusing to find. Big beds, loved hobbit hostel on de lat

Was meant to stay here for a couple of nights, ended up staying for 12! Really cheap, comfortable beds and clean throughout. The thing that made this hostel so great though was the staff. I called Win, one of the managers, upon arriving in dalat and he picked me up on his motorbike within 5 minutes. They helped us book...

The rooms are fine - clean and comfortable, but what makes this a 5 star review is the service. We were welcomed with a smile, the hostel staff helped us book our bus to Saigon and a 1 day easy rider tour ($37 per person). This was a highlight of our entire trip - Vin and Will our guides took...

First and foremost, this is a very charming hostel which fits perfectly with such a charming city. The staff is super hospitable, approachable and welcoming! They will help you book buses, canyoning with Highland Sport Travel (do it!), as well as rent motorcycles or bikes. They also provide a map and give you a good overview of places to visit...

“There is one room which is just separated from the hallway and therefore it is a bit louder, it wasn't a problem for me at all, but if you have a problem with sleeping when it's a bit noisy, maybe ask to stay in one of the other rooms.”
