Family is an appropriate name because that's honestly what the staff here make you feel like every night.


It was a fun experience but very hectic. Never a doll moment at mama's place. Little bit cramped but everybody is like a big family


The best hostel i've ever been so far..Mama is lovely, cooking for everyone all day long! The atmosphere is amazing! Gotta say that the room are small and the shower wasn't hot, but it worth it! Love u Mama!

Excellent hostel! one of the best hostels I've stayed at whilst travelling! Basic facilities (beds are matterress on the floor in the loft) but gives a very homely feeling, Mama and her staff welcome you with hugs kisses and food on entry, every day at 5pm she cooks the whole hostel dinner which was lovely! Also organises a great canyoning trip!


Staff are friendly. They like to pinch cheeks and hug. And as soon as we arrived. Before checking in, we were treated to a free home made and delicious meal! If u are introverted or shy, you may want to prepare yourself, because you sleep literally beside another person. You could roll over and bump into another person. Also when I was there it was packed seemingly beyond capacity! But it was nice to have so many new people to meet though. I enjoyed my stay there.

Mama was the greatest. Such a fun place to stay highly reccomend even if you dont like dorms. Huge family dinner every night and so cheap! Take their canyoning trip too!


This has to be hands down the best hostel I have ever stayed in. It really does feel like home. Mama is amazing, all the staff are incredible and genuine. This is the only place to stay in Dalat!!!


Very nice hostel. Staff are amazing and happy to help with all need. Mamma is Mamma v.crazy but good fun. Would highly recommend this hostel to all travellers visiting dalat.


Great atmosphere, specially the family dinner every night. Dorm is small for so many people. Booked the canyoning at the hostel, was great!


Best hostel ever to meet people. Don't go anywhere else

most crazy social hostel ever, family dinner is a must and the girls working there are al super crazy caring and fun - highly recommend that place for the atmosphere!!!


If you want a party hostel, this is it. If you want a chill vibe, look elsewhere. There was no toilet paper in our dorm, and it was generally dirty compared to the other dorms I've been in Vietnam. However, the staff go above and beyond trying to help. One note: my travel mates and I felt a little put off by the over-the-top way the landlady acted, and the uncharacteristic physical contact by the staff. It was weird. If you're a foodie, don't do the family dinner, go to the market street food!


Absolutely loved this place! Stayed during Christmas and was everything I wanted and more. Felt loved and cared for, completely like being part of the family. Stay here when you are in Dalat!!!


I really liked to stay there. The place is very busy in a good way. The atmosphere is really friendly and the place is full of fun people ready to hangout and to have a good time. The staff is incredibly awesome and helpful. Miss that time stayin inthere


The best hostel I have ever stayed at in my life


Favourite place I've stayed in in all of Asia. Hands down. You have to stay here. However, if you do, try the mojitos from the hostel opposite with the live music stand. They are bangin' and way cheaper


I have never felt so wanted at a hostel before. Hugs and smiles from the whole family upon entrance followed by a free lunch. Mama looks after everyone with the constant serving of banana pancake and chips! There's a great atmosphere here and well worth a visit. Rooms are very cramped with minimal space for bags and you sleeping next to each other but if you embrace this for what it is then you'll be fine.


Great atmosphere


This is so much more than just a hostel, the atmosphere can't be found anywhere else. Mama and the rest of the staff will adopte you and make you a part of the big family. Mama's food is amazing, and you will meet so many nice people since you have dinner together every night and everyone stays at the hostel to drink as long as possible before heading out to town. Most beds have lockers, the beds are comfortable, big dorms and shared bathrooms so if you look for privacy this is not the place..

Amazing hosts (especially mama), such a welcoming feeling and a great atmosphere during the entire stay. Great for travellers who want to socialise and meet others. Also the canyoning trip that you can book here is so much fun.
