Well, where to start? The beginning. We arrived late at night having taken the bus from Saigon, and my friend and I were weary, hungry and very grumpy. On arrival, at 2am, a very cheery and fully-alert security guard awoke the lovely Linh who checked us in in no time at all.
The hotel/hostel (depending on your room) is in a fantastic location in the centre of town, but still managed to be a quiet, happy and friendly haven from the rest of Mui Ne. The pool is brilliant and a real focus point for hanging out, and the beach area is great; plenty of beds with comfy cushions and a cracking view.
Rooms were good, but the trip was really made by "RaeRae" Rachel the manager of the hotel. I hope they are paying her well enough because she is a real asset and made the place perfectly special. I've stayed in Mui Ne four times before and this was the best value for money and hotel; having an English speaker (or at least the American version of it) always on the front desk really helps. There is also a handy tour organiser next door and the travel buses all stop outside which is handy during the day.
Highly recommended. Would definately go back. This hotel is the centre-point for all European and American travellers (ie not too many Russians). That must suffice for there is a royal baby in the offing and I must watch the BBC until it pops out.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Mui Ne Backpackers was one of the first guesthouses to open in Mui Ne, back when Mui Ne was a little-known coconut grove with a few woven huts along the beach. From those early days until now, this family-run property has been one of the most popular budget alternatives to the big resorts that have popped up along the main road. Mui Ne Backpackers has long been recommended by Lonely Planet and other reliable travel guides. Book direct on our website for 1 free Saigon! ... more less
