This hostel is located in a perfect position, the rooms are nice (with A/C), beds are very comfortable and showers amazing (with hot water). Very clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. I would definitely go back there. Great value for money.

First the positives: the staff are very helpful! We did an overnight tour the day we checked out from the hostel and were able to leave our bags at reception for 2 days. The staff were easy to talk to, friendly and very informative with things to do around the area. Warm, clean showers too which was plus. Unfortunately that...

Wanderlust is a fun place to stay for a couple of nights, if you don't mind sharing a small dorm with lots of people. It's really sociable with a nice rooftop bar where you can meet other travellers, and close to the main backpacker district full of restaurants and bars. The staff are friendly and helpful. The 15 bed dorms...

First off all everything is super small! You sleep with 15 persons in one room (wich you know cause you booked it) but the beds are 3 high and if the person next to you is tall his/her feet will be in you bed. You have zero space to put your backpacks somewhere (between beds: 4 by 1 meter to...

We've been travelling for five weeks in south east Asia and this has by far been the worst hostel we stayed in. On arrival we were greeted with a cockroach in the corner, mouldy walls, bedsheets which hadn't been cleaned, sockets that didn't work and a broken door. There was no light in the bathroom and we met a man...

I have nothing but good things to say about this hostel. They upgraded me to a better room because it had some spaces in it and to my great surprise, I met the most beautiful boy I've ever seen who is now my boyfriend. We spent a wonderful evening together on the delightful rooftop bar and exchanged longing glances on...

I found the hostel quite randomly at late night after a 12 hours bus ride so all I wanted was quietness and good people. I found both. What you get is a small bed in a quite busy dorm, but some tents will guarantee you far more privacy than what you notmally get in other better looking hostels. What you...

The rooms are very clean, the shower got pressure - (finally NOT one of these dripping ones) , close to Bui Vien but a bit more peaceful and chilled aaaand the most amazing stuff, that you can find in a hostel all over Vietnam!
