really easy atmosphere and suits the needs. cheap tours that were very good and helpful, friendly staff


We could. Have found something nicer for the price. Had a private room, but it was it very clean, found cigarette butts when we got home. 2nd day (from the cleaner we assume)


Many Vietnamese customers. Accommodating. Aircon barely worked, but the fan did a good enough job. Book you ride to Hanoi through Halong.... Rather then their transport option to Hanoi, its slower with many stops.


I took a Lan Ha bay tour with the hostel and really enjoyed it. The staff is quite helpful as well. The only problem was extremely noise fan in the dorm room.


An ok place to stay in Cat Ba where there is little difference between options. Staff were quite pushy with their tour and travel options and one member of staff was quite rude. Potentially due to the pressure to upsell, if you don't want to buy something the staff feel uninterested in informing you.


Good hostel a few minutes up the hill from the seafront.


Really not that far from the main road. The staff were super friendly and th the tours they offered were quite well done and cheaper than most offered in town.


I was in a single room which was clean and even came with a TV. The hostel is only a few minutes away from the main street so that's not a problem. Staff are nice and helpful.


Really nice hostel. When we arrived we were actually taken to their new hostel which isn't quite finished yet. The new place is right on the seafront, we had our own balcony with an amazing view. All for the same price ( super cheap). Really nice staff. The room wasn't anything special, but again so cheap. Did get woken up quite early because of the building. Would recommend.
