Excellent hostel and as I am a senior citizen I took my time in Hue and so I stayed three extra days, which was not a problem. The staff were very helpful and courteous and went out of their way to help. Breakfast was from 7.30, but if you were away earlier on a tour, breakfast was there for you.... More

Not the best the private room We had was dirty the furniture was broken the bed was broken, the TV didn't work the Windows didn't shut properly, and the shower was on the wall at the right height for a midget or a child! Pretty sure there are better places to stay but each to their own I guess!!

Really good location with plentiful bars and restaurants outside. We stayed in a double room which was nice, had good air con and tv. Bathroom was good and shower was nice. Only issue was when he arrived they were outrageously pushy with tours. They sat us down and basically lectured us on them. They were SO expensive also but just... More

An awesome team of staffs run this quiet place and they are super helpful and friendly! Great breakfast consisting a baguette, an omelette, yogurt, a fruit and a choose of coffee or tea. The dorm room and it's en-suite toilet is spotlessly clean, so no worries here. I'll definitely be back if I visit Hue again. Great job!

The hostel is a great base to explore Hue, 20 minute walk to the imperial city and five minutes from the bars and restaurants... Also the women selling noodles on the street opposite is rather decent. Staff are fantastic and the beds are pretty comfortable. Only thing is the shower in our dorm room is really random, it's set in... More

I have nothing but great things to say about this hotel! First, when you check in they bring you a huge bowl of watermelon and banana (and dont charge you for it). They are so welcoming and friendly and offer great advice, tours and activities without pressuring you to buy from them. The breakfast is hearty and delicious (and also... More

This hostel is great because of the amazing team of staff, they were all so kind and couldn't do enough for us! They gave us cold water and fruit when we arrived bleary eyed off the night bus and checked us in early.

The family who run's this hotel is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice, with only 4 single beds instead of bunk beds. The hotel is located at a good location near the city center. I had a far better experience than some friends who stayed in other hostels in Hue.

One of the best hostels I have stayed at while travelling Vietnam. Very good rooms, good wifi (which is rare), good free breakfast and staff extremely helpful. I also left an item in my room when travelling to Hanoi, they posted it same day free of charge and I got it the next day, fantastic service. Highly recommend this hostel... More
