A little hard to find, this hostel by itsself is worth a visit to Dalat! Anni, the young owner, is not only a real sweetheart but also manages the hostel in a great way. Opened up just a few months ago, the dorms are very confortable, new and therefore best value for money. You can have dinner with Annis mum who is hilarious, get to know the "real Vietnam", with all its hospitality and off the tourist tracks.
It was a great pleasure to stay at Dalat Family Hostel, where the "family" never fitted a hostel better! It's a must visit on my next journey to Vietnam!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Crazy House! Dalat Family Hostel provides a unique, fun, and family-like environment that is unparalleled by any other hostels. We understand that when you are traveling you are looking for new experiences. We promise that this hostel will be an experience unlike any other you will have in Vietnam, or even the world. Dalat Family Hostel, located in Dalat City, is a popular choice for travelers in a quiet, local, neighborhood with a nice panoramic view of the park and city. You will be greeted by either Mama, "Crazy", or Anni upon arrival. Don't be too shy because we certainly aren't. Once you arrive, a member of our staff will take you out to try the local food and services (i.e sauna, massage, etc.). At Dalat Family Hostel you will be able to experience Vietnamese life from inside. The hostel is right next to many coffee places, restaurants, bars, pagodas and other tourist attractions. The local market is just a 2-minute walk from our location. Dalat Family Hostel is also close to popular city attractions such as Linh Son Pagoda (50m), Dalat University (0.87 km), Xuan Huong lake (1.4 km), Da Lat Flower Park (1.7 km), Golf Course (1.9 km), and Domaine Cathedral (2.4 km). Aside from the many attractions, in the city, there are also various activities on the outskirts of Dalat. You can go on a waterfall cannoning tour (an absolute must) or a motorbike tour to see the breathtaking mountainous landscape. We can tell you many other great things to do and visit in Da Lat during your time here as well. In the evening at 5:30 PM, guests gather around the common area for a meal served by Mama, your surrogate mother. The food is delicious and inexpensive, but what family dinner really brings is a great atmosphere to meet people and to enjoy a Vietnamese-style family dinner. After dinner, you can enjoy conversation and cheap beer for a little while before one of the girls takes everyone out to a local bar or karaoke club. We will make sure that your stay in Dalat is memorable and something that you will talk about after your trip. We want it to feel like home. Talk to other travelers and they will agree: Dalat family hostel is special. Give our hostel a try and we will make sure that you won't be disappointed. ... more less
