As most backpackers we gathered recommendations about places to stay on the internet/travel guides and judged that this hotel seemed suitable - we booked for two nights from Saigon.
The hotel is nicely located and has a direct access to the sea. The staff was helpfull and friendly and the room (sea view) was decent apart from of our shower (little and semi warm water).
We however didn't like (i) the cancellation policy (30 days - no refund), (ii) the 12.000vnd for an extra rol of toilet paper (damn you traveler diarrhea) and (iii) the outrageous 4prct additional fee if you want to pay with visa, (iiii) the lack of a typical backpackers central place to hang around, have breakfast/drink and mingle with fellow travelers (luckily there was a great bar with live music/pool table next door - Joe's Cafe)
Bottomline, the place was allright but there are better places to stay during low season when prices go rock bottom and you can shop around, so don't book in advance in low season.
Finally, we regret having made use of the booking office tied to the hotel (Mui Ne Backpackers tours&travel) for our train ticket from Na Thrang to Danang. We have been charged 70 USD for a sleep train (soft sleepers -for 2 persons), but only received our tickets on our way to Na Thrang in the bus. We found this sequence quite strange but soon found out that this was probably just to avoid our reaction at the sight of two hard sleepers ticket of approx. 42usd value. ... Anyway , we survived the overcharging and arrived at our destination..
