Awesome hostel! We paid 2.5$ per night in a dorm, got upgraded to a private room and stayed 2 more nights than planed. They organized us scooters and a really good trip to halong Bay to the cheapest price (we compared other places in town).The staff was amazingly friendly and breakfast was also good and cheap. We were completely happy here!
A very nice hostel, very cheap and with an amazing value for price. I recommend it to any backpacker on a budget who does not seek for 5 star hotels but just a hot shower and a bed to sleep. Great stay!

This is cheap and very basic. My shampoo has disappeared from my private room. When I asked the owner he told me that he would go check. I have never had a return of any member of the staff. On the other hand, when we asked the note, they tried to make us pay laundry 35000 vnd per kilo instead of 30000... There are much better and more honest places to stay here in Cat Ba.
Great value for money with friendly staff and a good vibe. The dorms are well equipped with a light, power outlets and a fan for each bed. I'd recommend renting scooter from the hostel as it's easy and a good price.
The staff from reception wasn't very eager to help. Not a good attitude. Just stayed one night there. Good value for money but We preferred to move closer to the main road just for one dollar extra. The room was very smelly, like mould, lack of ventilation.
The beds are very comfortable and each have their own outlet and fan. The staff is friendly and helpful (Some are very funny too). Good price for the rooms. Motorbikes had seen better days.
Good and cheap. A bit of a hike into town but not bad. Good for the price

Lovely staff and nice big room with soft bed. No hot water though and furthest up the hill from town.
Lovely owner. Remember Catba Central Hostel or Catba Hostel Downtown for your next. Very helpful, we got a private twin even though we booked a dorm.
Wahrscheinlich nicht die beste Wahl bei der Vielzahl von Angeboten in Cat Ba.
Really great hostel with lovely staff. A little walk out of the main town but very easy to get to. Close to fort cannon and some great restaurants. Some of the rooms are hot and some are quite cold so check before you confirm your room if that bothers you. Personal fans are provided which is excellent!
Located up a hill off of main drag, a bit of a walk... Staff was alright, not overly friendly. Overcharged for coffee, thought I was ordering Vietnamese coffee -instead Nescafé on ice (yuk). Room and facilities mostly clean and comfortable. But try to get bed that isn't pushed up to next divided by curtain -too close. Overall good value for price, average Nam hostel.
