We booked this hostel from the great reviews but on arrival we were disappointed. The location is amazing but the property is very run down. Apparently the hostel next door Sunflower has bought this hostel and now it looks very run down. Sunflower has a new beach club and accommodation which is directed towards the local Vietnamese community. The reception staff were very friendly but it is obvious that there are a lot of teething problems with the new management. So when looking through past reviews keep in mind that this property is not the same as it use to be. Accommodation is basic but location is fabulous.

A place to totally chill out RIGHT on the beach. Great food, limited bar selection but there's plenty there for a good time 😉 The owner was also really cool and popped in from time to time. Met a guy who was there on his 6th or 7th trip and I can see why!

We stayed here last year and loved it, so we stayed again this year. Things not quite as organised without Michaella but still good. An is struggling a bit but when he gets it all together it will be wonderful again. The location is brilliant right on a beautiful beach. The food is good and the conviviality of both staff and regulars is delightful. We'll be back

Though it is not like a hotel but the location of the hostel and it's staff are nice and wonderful. There might be some issues with housekeeping but all the requests were attended to. Mr. Anh is great and his staff Ms. Hong and Minh were very friendly and cooperative. Being a vegetarian I always find myself in problem getting food in Vietnam. But the cook prepared Banana Cake without egg for us. My children were also very happy with the place. I would recommend this place for sure. Of course, the hostel needs to be made little more clean and housekeeping should be improved. But in the charges, they charge, it is very good place.

We stayed here in June and the place is infested with bed bugs , first we were placed in the dorm where the 3 of us were eaten alive , When we mentioned this to drunken staff, we were told to harden up and use repellent . We tried but were still bitten and asked for another room , we were then told they were full so we could sleep on the beach .. we said no and were placed in a spare room which i can only describe as a dogs toilet , it stank of pee and vomit and moldy socks and the air conditioner hadn't worked in years . Do yourself a favor people, Do not stay here, there are hundreds of better cheaper options within 1000 feet of this disgusting hole. Ps the food is vile and more expensive than Austria especially the burgers .YUK Avoid this place like the plague because you will probably catch the plague. This hotel should change its name to BEACHSIDE BUGPACKERS
