On a half year trip through southeast asia I had my longest stav at Langchia Hostel and I can really say that this is the best hostel I've been to during this time. It is superb modern, clean and painted on comfortably warm colours. But actually the best reason to stay there is the most friendly staff and the friendly atmosphere that makes you feel like home every day. This is the place where east meets west. People and architecture. So don"t be so picky and hesitate, just go there and try to beet the staff at table footbal/soccer. BTW the beach is very close and easily to reach by feet in one minute and you will not even half of the price like at the overrated beach resorts.

This hostel is lovely, well designed a clean, just a few things, could do with bedside lights, mosquito nets around the showers (at openings) and slightly thicker mattresses - but good overall response, nice traveler atmosphere and nice staff, although big dorms make it a little harder to mix if you're alone

This small lovely hostel has à lot to offer. It contains of one bedroom with approximately 15 beds, so it's small and cosy. It offers free movies every night. When I visites they organised several great trips. We went to à desolated island by boat, had à bbq there and watched the sunset. It was really great! The vibe at this place is fantastic. The owner is à friendly young Vietnamese guy, who really tries to give you à good time. The place is clean, well run and offers hot showers and breakfast. Only downside is that this place is not on the beach.

This place made Phu Quoc island all that more memorable. The staff were young and really friendly, the place was brand new and tidy. What set this hostel apart was its atmosphere making it perfect for solo or small group travellers. The 18 bed dorm room makes it really easy to meet people and organis activities. Good value for money and all round experience.

We can only recommend Langchia after having spent there three nights. All that has been mentuoned in the comments is true: relaxed atmosphere, good place to meet friendly folk from all around the world, friendly and helpful staff... Especially the interior design of the place hooked us. The 18 bed dorm is very charmingly done and they let the visitors draw on the white walls to give the room even more character. All in all an excellent island on a lovely island, which you should visit before mass tourism hits it in a few years!

Stayed there in dez 13. Very nice and the cheapest backpacker option in the area (10$ direct booking, 11 on hostelworld breakfast included), sockets at each bed, drying area for wet things, 3 showers outside, 2 toilets, nice and clean area. Room is with 18 beds but I had no problems to sleep. Very quiet and respectful guests! Have been sleeping worse in 4 bed dorms ;).
Staff is very very friendly and helpful and makes everything possible (like helping to change date of the ferry ticket for although it was already paid at a travel agency in Saigon etc.)
No towels provided but you can buy or rent them. Laundry at the other side of the street. Bikes and motorbikes for rent.
They have 2 puppies that run around everywhere so no place if you don't like dogs. And maybe now you have to have a look at your stuff because they (the dogs) started "stealing" socks and shoes ;)

Booked the hostel for my last 3 days of holidays. Was def. the best hostel I stayed in whole Vietnam. Everything is open and bright and very clean. Iced Coffee in the morning is very delicious and having a shower by watching the sky is for sure the best way to get a day started. Location is also brilliant - just 2 min to the beach and 15 min to get to the centre. I really enjoyed staying there. Oh and another bonus - various offered tours just for hostel guests and a lot of helpful information of the staff to get around the island yourself.
