The hostel is basic; the thinest mats and normal beds which are just screwed together to form bunk beds. the people are friendly as long as they want you to buy something. they have a machine to accept credit cards, but they didn't want to use it. i persisted, so they said, they have to call someone who can work...

We arrived in Quy Nhon in the middle of the night and after night full of adventure (and sleeping in hotel in the middle of nowhere) we arrived at Barbara's Backpackers. I was really disappointed what I saw. A really crappy hostel without any spirit that it promised. Food was very mediocre at best and bit expensive. The saddest part...

We went to Barbara's a couple of times while we were in Quy Nhon. The first time we'd just arrived and were in desperate need of both food and beer. Local beers v reasonably priced and we both ordered western food so expected to pay a little more than usual. Food was pretty good and service adequate. We returned the...

First off, the 'bunk beds' were two beds which had been screwed together - unsafe. We all found dead bugs on top of our duvets. No locker for our bags and the door didn't lock. Vietnamese staff were kind but young man working was extremely surly

Cheap and cheerful, I felt well looked after here. Dorm beds are ok, just the one 6 bed dorm. $5 not including breakfast. Breakfast was yummy, western style available and inexpensive. And the beach is just across the road, excellence! Correct address is not nguyen, but 18? An Durong. Small issue with smoking in the inner area by staff. But...

Well first the address is wrong. It's at 12 An Duong Vuong. It took me a while to find it. But when I arrived the gates were locked although it was just a bit past 10 pm. The biggest problem with a place that staff watched TV very loud. I was very tired and, hence it didn't bother me in...

We didn't stay here but oddly enough met a person from our small town who was staying and was happy with it. We had a cheap feed - mine was Vietnamese and good, my partner tried the pizza, which certainly wasn't what you would expect in a Western country. Beer starts at 50c for the local brew. I also did...

We didn't stay here just ate at the restaurant, the food was tasty and cheap but small portions and pretty basic. The staff weren't very friendly and the area you sit and eat in is pretty dank with a lot of dust! we kept being asked if we wanted to buy a tour / day trip etc and were only...

We didn't stay here, but we enjoyed plenty of meals here as it's a great spot for breakfast and or dinner. The menu is western, but if you are craving some fish and chips, good sandwiches etc it is great comfort food and finally somewhere that knows how to make a decent coffee. Starting the day with a plunger of...
