“Ideal hostel for backpackers passing through!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

Hue Backpackers Hostel its a great place to stay for affordable rooms (Though I thought an $8 dorm bed was a bit expensive for Southeast Asia, its totally affordable!), a fun and inviting vibe in the hostel restaurant and bar with tons of fellow backpackers around, and nice balconies to chill out on upstairs.

The bar is very fun, with a rooster announcing happy hour every evening, good drink deals and fun drinking games going on. Restaurant served delicious food as well!

Great location, surrounded by many restaurants and an easy walk to the night market, and across the river to the big day market or main attractions in town. You can rent bicycles and easily venture around town, or do one of their many tours and day trips.

My only dislike was one of the staff trying to rip me off with a bus ticket, and trying to make me pay double then what others had just bought them for, and being unhelpful when I asked of other options. Ended up getting my bus ticket from another hotel!

But over all, had a great stay here for 3 nights and definitely recommend it!

clean rooms, clean bathrooms, professional and friendly service. free breakfast, bar downstairs (only stays open till 11pm so you can get some sleep or go elsewhere for drinks)

a few things they could improve:
- maybe spray for bugs every week or so. There weren't many but it could always get better.
- sometimes the air conditioner didn't work

I only stayed here one night but I had comfortable stay. Rooms where dead on, beds comfy and bathroom clean. The bar/restaurant was pretty cool and I had some nice food there, had good atmosphere and easy to meet people

The hostel was fantastic, and actually a major step up from the original Hanoi Backpackers.

The central bar and cafe has a lovely atmosphere, with plenty of room to sit and plan the day, meet other backpackers, or relax with one of their decent drinks deals. The hammocks on the second floor, or the well-maintained rooms, keep up this feel throughout the hostel.

Partially because we were lucky with the people we met, and partially because of the hostel's excellent layout and feel, we arrived in a group of two and left three days later in a group of twelve. We even ended up taking the Top Gear motorbike route to Hoi An, having never been on bikes before - which the hostel organised for us, which is one of my favourite memories from three months in Asia, and which all happened because of the atmosphere in Hue Backpackers.

Well-located, not too pricey, well organised and a lovely atmosphere.

(They did manage to lose a book of mine, and I had to reclaim my own towel from some over-enthusiastic cleaners, but no other gripes...)

Hue backpackers seemed quiet after going to the Hanoi branch but it still had a great vibe! The staff were friendly as well as the reps and other people. The breakfast (included) was good as was the other food served. Free use of internet is always good when you need to put pictures up on Facebook and the hostel seemed close and in walking distance of the major attractions and the nightlife. Had a great time the and had fun at Brown eyes club! Nice and chilled and good value with breakfast included!

This hostel is on a great location. Fun place to hangout and meet more travelers. Dorm rooms are a bit small but still for such a cheap price and location it's all worth it. Friendly staff with all the information you need. Definitely recommended.

The nice thing about this hostel is that all the backpackers go here. Everybody is willing to help you by getting nice food, a good hostel on your next location and all that kind of stuff. The staff is very helpful. Good place to stay!
