Very nice hostel! Fantastic value for money, they organise the best canyoning trips in town ! The staff were friendly and very helpful particularly the two young ladies at reception. Great place to meet people!


Would be a good hostel if it wasn't so loud at night. Dogs barking, children screaming and doors banging at all hours. Breakfast was fairly grim too. Staff great though.


Best hostel in all of Southeast Asia, I really mean that. The staff are the best!

The staff at this hostel were so incredibly friendly they really couldn't do enough for us. On arrival they will draw everyone a route of where to go in the town on a map and also you get unlimited frr tea and coffee during your stay. The rooms are great, lush warm showers and a digital tv. As it is Da Lat it can get cold in the evenings so remember to bring a coat, and also go canyoning so much fun :)


Very friendly staffs and great value also cute dogs, see u again when I visit Dalat 😚


Wonderful and helpful staff. They helped us find some great places to visit during our short trip and nurtured a friendly, relaxed environment. The room was simple but clean and the hostel was in a great location.


We had a very good journey in this guesthouse. We stayed for 2 days. The staff is very nice and welcoming, giving you all the tips to visit around !


Hostel was average... Location fine...family meal was quite tasty. We stayed in the building next door. The family that run that part were ridiculously loud roaring up and down the stairs at each other, banging doors etc. Not very P.C. but there was also a baby that roared crying ALL the time. Not the hostels fault but not conducive to sleep!! Moved hostel to Dalat Backpackers, breakfast and dinner included for the same price, massive room, really friendly staff. Pity we hadn't gone there 1st!

Awesome staff, most friendly ever.


Best hostel ever


Stayed 3 nights and thought the hostel was very good. All the basic facilities you'd expect and very friendly and helpful staff.


Staff was really nice and helpful and also location is good. But we were not happy with the rooms. We stayed in private room and there were mold on the walls and it smelled stuffy. Blankets were dirty and smelled bad. We told about mold to staff and they changed our room but it didn't solve for the problem. If you choose to stay in this place I recommend to ask a room with a window that you can have some fresh air to your room.


This hostel has been my favourite so far :) The staff were amazing and made you feel like part of the family - getting all the travellers involved even in their meal :) They were happy to help with anything and show you great things in the local area which they were very honest and positive about - you could tell they loved helping backpackers :)


We stayed in a mixed dorm of 10 for 4 nights and can't speak highly enough about the hostel! The staff are super friendly, helpful and far too generous which was great. The service wasn't a standard service it had a real personal touch. We had an amazing meal cooked for us and about 20 people all sat down to eat together. Book the canyoning through the hostel, by far the best $23/25 we've spent! A must do!! Best hostel we've stayed in to date, great value for money. Highly recommended! Davy


Great staff, very helpful with recommendations, comfortable rooms, dinner offered at the hostel was delicious and filling for a small cost, was a bit of street noise but common everywhere in Vietnam. Only a ten minute walk to Central part of town. Would definitely stay again because of the hospitality of the staff.


Do the canyoning, it's brilliant. The dinner in the evening is good craic and a great way to meet everyone


You guys are so unbelieveably kind and thoughtful, uou made my stay and absolute pleasure and an experience I will not forget. Thank you for the smiles, advice and generosity.

It's run by a nice family who are very welcoming and really helpful. it's a good place to meet people, It has a lounge to drink, eat and watch movies. Activities can be organised directly through the hostel too.


absolutetly loved this place! best one on the entire trip so far! incredibly friendly staff, home away from home!


A lovely family environment with friendly atmosphere and staff always willing to help. When we arrived it was pouring with rain and we were greeted with open arms and hot tea. The canyoning tour is a must, and book through reception with Highland Adventure tours as they are one family business and you will receive a discount and have an amazing day. The canyoning tour was the highlight of our Vietnam trip so far. The rooms are clean and functional, I would recommend this hostel to anyone.
