The bath was not connected to the floor resulting in bruises when I showered. The basin fell off the wall. The aircon rattled and smelt abismal. The staff were abrupt, inattentive and at times almost rude. Though the locations awesome, and the rooms themselves are nice- I really didn't enjoy my stay here. The beds were also the hardest things I've ever slept on (even by Vietnamese standards).


We loved staying at this hotel! Everything was wonderful. Staff were very lovely and spoke English well! Rooms were clean and reasonably priced. Thank you very much!!


Awful hostel. Do not stay. We got a private room, firstly it had a moudly smell. Secondly, the aircon was not working, it was blowing air, but not cold air, and the staff said that it was because vietinamise people dont feel hot. Thirdly, there was a thin layer of dust all over the floor. Moreover, the toilet was disgusting, and looked dirty. One bed was really hard. Lastly, the staff was trying so hard to sell us an overpriced tour. DO NOT STAY HERE.


Áll the staff was amazing! They are very kind and helpfull. They alway helped us to organise and arrange everything. Thank you for everything!

Stayed at 501, a nice room with big window. The staff was incredible, helpful and constantly went out of their way to try and help us. Sapa and Halong bay excursion made through the Hostel was well priced. We had a great time there and definitely recommend for everyone.
