“Nice”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

The only thing that really makes this hostel stand out are a few of the staff members. It's an average place otherwise. It could use a lot of freshening up with paint, fixing a few issues, etc. They do provide lockers but they are very small, not very secure and some are broken. Wifi signal is good.

Location is in the heart of the touristy area, one block from the Perfume River and a fantastic Pho shop across the street. It's on a very busy street but very little noise filtered up to the room.

Not much more to say than it's good for tight budget but I do suspect you can do better in Hue.

This was a great place to stay. The staff are very helpful - I had significant problems with a bus ticket I had purchased in Hoi An to get to Ha Noi, and was sent around in circles for hours. Finally, the receptionist was so helpful at the hostel (I can't remember her name, but she was fantastic) and sorted everything out for me. They were so great and friendly. I also felt like this was a safe and secure place with security boxes by the beds.

Service is much better than most hostels I have stated at. Customer service remains consistent even after you pay for your bed. 6 bed dorm has A/C, but NOT 4 bed room.

HUE and HO? (She's goes by Hannah) are solid humans who speak English well. Very helpful and understanding if you want to see other lodgings before committing with them, they even govendirections to the other plaves. But this was our choice after seeing two other places. Gas, Mechanics, market. and, cheap food (and vegetarian) all within walking distance.

I was able to wash my own clothes and dry on the roof at no charge. I found that is rare or not allowed at most places we go to, but a big selling point for me. 30k a kilo if you want them to do laundry.

They have their own public kitchen for use and safe moto parking. My one complaint is no personal locker under bed for items, but there are little boxes for valuables next to your bed.

TL:DR. Well worth the stay at $5 a night. I would recommend and stay more night.

my cousin and i stayed here not so long ago. the staff are very helpful and directed us for good cheap places to eat. The pho ga is probably the best in the country in hue. The citadel is in walking distance so no need to pay for a taxi, just take a map and some water. they dont give a free breakfast but Hot Tuna next door have a cheap set menu.
The price for the rooms is really good and their wifi is better than most places we've stayed that.

The only con would be that they didnt always have warm to hot shower water, but thats about it.

good place to stay if you're in town.

A very nice hostel that is situated in a very prime location near lots of backpacker/tourist activities as well as local restaurants. Short distance to travel to many of the main sites in Hue, including the Imperial City.

Rooms are great - clean and air conditioned with a small locker. Regular daily cleaner to clean up the place. Bathroom is good. WIFI is pretty good and there's a computer down stairs as well. The place also has a small booth out front where they sell lots and lots of different tour packages in and around Hue, including to Hoi An/Da Nang etc.

But best of all are the staff. Young, enthusiastic, fun - they can speak great english and are willing to help you with anything enquiries you have. Very knowledeable and can hook you up with many different services/packages.

And for only $5 a night, it's absolutely great! Will stay again if I'm ever in Hue :)

Place really nice - very convinient in all cases and prices lower then everywhere around.
1. Situated very good - in bakpackers area but little aside in quite place, wery close to the Parfume river bank.
2. Personal speak english good and can help you in all you need.
3. Rooms is nice, clean and convinient. And has AIR CONDITION - that's great option!
4. Has kitchen - so you can have cooking experiments.
5. Own motorbike parking.
6. Very nice view from the roof :)
7. Prices is really cheeper then everywhere around.
Many backpackers bars near bat if you want local atmosphere just walking 10 minutes and you get to fully non touristic area with local houses, markets, foodplaces...

SoI can recommend it for everybody.

This was a nice hostel. I stayed here a long time ago, about three months ago. I stayed a couple nights. The staff are friendly especially one of them had a fascination with "lincoln park" that's a famous hardcore band if you didn't know. It was funny. They speak English. The beds are comfy although I am probably the last person who thinks about comfort. Solid
