Best hostel we've stayed in so far, facilities could be better but the staff completely made up for it. They had no rooms available the night we arrived but fed us and then sorted out accommodation for us and paid for our taxi there. Never felt so welcome and at home, thank you Muma!

Great staff and good hostel if you are social person
Great hostel with great people. Tight quarters but no regrets. Dalat is epic, rent a bike from the hostel to see it and the area around. Great parking if you do own a bike.
Best hostel in South East Asia with the best staff, thank you for having us xxx

One of, if not best hostel i have stayed at! The staff is so amazing and welcoming. Mama is always hugging you and feeding you loads of delicious food, literally the food never stops! Very quaint hostel with many guest so you meet new people every night. Amazing place. Must stay while in Da Lat!
The friendliest, kind and sharing hostel owners I have ever encountered. On arrival Mama (owner) gave me a big hug and plate of food for lunch and in return I helped her make a big plate of spring rolls for dinner that evening. Everyone in the hostel likes to eat the yummy dinner that Mama prepares together for 42,000 each (optional). The beds are super comfy and close together so it kind of feels like a slumber party. The bathrooms are average but are what you'd expect of a home stay. Loved it
It was a great experience, wonderful family feel especially at dinner. The canyoning trip organised by the hostel was amazing too! However, it was not very clean and beds are extremely close together.
This place is so so special . By far my favourite place to stay on my travels in South east Asia. Any home sickness you may have whilst travelling will soon dissapear here as you really are made to feel so welcome and loved . This hostel has humble beginnings and the family who run it deserve every guest they get. All the Dalat family want you to do is be happy here , and every single person here was made to feel happy I am 1000% sure of that. Cannot recommend enough ! I love you family !
The best place to have a good time in Dalat. The family is lovely, daily dinner with the family and all the other backpackers made by Mama, Party by night with crazy Anny. But when you prefer a quite place with privacy look for other acommodation
First I have to say that Anni and her family are the sweetest people we've met while backpacking! The take great care of their guests and it really feels like a little travler family. We enjoyed our stay at Dalat family but it was really unfortunate that we had several hundred dollars stolen from our bag. (Lockers were full in our room so I had to hid my $ in my bag). Anni was so sweet and offered to help in any way she could. A lesson learned tho, so lock up your stuff! Anyways, we'd stay again
The place is runned by a Vietnamese family, mainly the girls and the "Mama". It has an amazing family ambient, the family dinner served everyday is amazing with everyone sitted around the table. The breakfast next door is OK. Nice place overall, would stay again!
You stay here for the experience, it's Definitely a welcoming environment and run by a lovely family. You will meet great people too. Only downside is that the rooms are in desperate need of lockers and it can sometimes be a little overwhelming!
Benny and the staff are very welcoming and absolutely amazing. The lobby is a great place to hang out and meet others and it's close to the beach and bars. I only wish there were more bathrooms as you could spend a significant amount of time waiting when it's busy.
Great social atmosphere, and Mama is amazing! It is just too chaotic (reservations don't mean anything there). Things tend to go "missing", and my bags were always moved from my bed. Just lock everything and you will be fine!
Amazing hostel, staff are so entertaining and very happy to help. Before we had even checked in there was food made for us free of charge. Beds are very comfortable. Great atmosphere and perfect place to meet other travellers.
You feel at home here straight away, with hugs and kisses all over the place. 'Mama' makes a good diner at night and you can go into town if you want. However, the rooms are as cold as it is outside, which meant I slept with a fleece jacket. And the showers weren't hot when I was there. The location is okay, but not as close to the bars and restaurants. It is close to the Hanh cafe though.
simply couldn't rate this hostel more highly. literally is one big family, we met so many amazing people and mama is hilarious.
