Just stayed for a night and for the price it was perfectly fine! Electricity does not work all the time and the aircon works poorly - it was rather hot than chilly ... For breakfast you can choose between many nice dishes - the fruit salad was really good plus there is free

We very much enjoyed our stay. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome! We were their around tet so most things were closed down; however they allowed our group to stay and we truelly enjoyed the time we had.

Friendly professional staff with good English! Rooms appeared clean and tidy! Good air conditioning! Mattress was extremely firm but weirdly comfortable! Small Bottles of water supplied in room daily included in price. Reasonable and efficient Laundry service available

Dear Tasha, Thank you for your questions. As you know, in Vietnam there are many people they offen eat dog's meat. And the are many bad people ( unemployment...) they often stole the dog from the owner to sell & earn money. We raised many dogs in our hostel and they are our friends. But there were many times, the thief stolen our dogs and then they sell to the restaurant to kill them. So we have to keep them in cages to protect them out of the thief. We have already lost the 1 year old dog last month, that is the second dog was stolen . And now we have no any dog at our hostel. Maybe the dogs you saw belonged our neighbour to protect them. We know it is not comfortable when they are kept in cages. But it's better for them. We only try to keep them safe.

Hello Brian, thank you very much for a nice question and we would like inform you that we arrange the private transfer to train station whenever you need and its cost 500,000 VND. At Gecko Hostel we serve breakfast from 07h00 AM so you have time to have breakfast before leaving for train station. Kind regards,

"The private rooms over large beds and a private ensuite! Phong Nha isn't too loud so any room will give you peace and quiet."
"Feel free to ask for a room where there are many guests or not many guests depending on if you want more interactions or privacy"
"All the rooms looked great"
