Absolutely fantastic establishment. Jake, Harley, Welshie and the rest of the wonderful staff there really made you feel at home and did the job when it came to having a couple of beers. Highly recommended!!! Love the Beer Pong Champion Chang

I was sent here by the Hoi An Vietnam Backpackers' which is a very different league of establishment. There were no privates available, so I booked into a 6-person dorm, which was switched to a 12-person dorm upon arrival. The beds are good, the bar is happening (mainly 19-25 yr olds), there is a good community feel here. It is...

Awesome Hostel- Amazing, Friendly and Very Helpful Staff. I had a fantastic time staying at Vietnam Backpackers Hostel Hue. It's in a prime location that is very central and close to many attractions to see in Hue. The highlight of my time staying in VBH Hue was the amazing, friendly staff members which added to the experience. The Manager, Western...

Definitely, a place to avoid for the traveller. This one only aims to make cash with drunk people. Beer pong, drinking games, loud music... you have them all here. Plus a lot of extra noise inside your room, when 8 people are in a 6-bunk bedroom. Not to mention, the bathroom is inside the room and does not ventilate.

The hostel itself was exactly what you want, also very close to DMZ bar which is a must whilst you're there. Try and meet Locky and say Ash and Gia sent you. You may be lucky enough to be invited to a 'meeting'. The best thing for me though we're the two tour guides who took us from Hue to...

The location is good to arrange activities by yourself. The price for private room is decent. The staffs were quite friendly and spoke good english. The drinks and food are very cheap.However it's quite a busy and noisy stay here. If you want to have a quiet stay this is not for you. If you like to have more fun...

Stayed in the all-female dorm where there were dirty linens, cockroaches and ants. The electricity also goes on and off all night (which I guess can be good so you don't see the ants all over the dining room tables and your food at that)! You can't rent a towel, you can only buy one for the same price as...

Greetings traveler Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We always strive to improve and welcome all feedback, positive and negative.

The rooms are quite small, especially for someone who is as tall as me. But the beds are good and the lockers are quite handy. The staff is very friendly. Besides the somewhat claustrophobic feeling a got, I was satisfied.. the breakfast is also good.
