My boyfriend and I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights and we didn't feel welcomed at all! Instead of 12 USD a night the dodgy young man told us in the end that the exchange rate had changed overnight. Yeah, right... Simply not nice.
Staff in a whole was no good. They were shouting at each other while we just wanted to get a coffee in the morning, so we left to get one next door as even after going directly to them and asking them didn't change our waiting situation. It just went on like this: They just do not care.
The second evening we wanted to chill out in the really nice area with pool table, overlooking Cat ba Town harbor. First evening had been nice there, as a lot of travellers were around. Just note: When there is a lot of people it's noisy in your room too. As on the second night we were soon the only guests (part of the staff watched TV and went to bed on the sofas in the chill out area) they simply turned off the lights - while we still had our drinks. Not nice either.
The room was ok, but the feeling in a whole was simply crap. Only two girls who we met the first evening down at the restaurant were helpful - the rest of the bunch isn't welcoming at all. It's a rip off.More
