One of the best hostels than I've been until now. Very clean, good location, very good wi fi signal, with electric blankets (even in dorm) and is really cheap. But the most important was than the staff is so nice. They understood when I reduced my visit in Sapa (because was bad weather) and they don't added any charge. If I will go back to Sapa someday, of course than I will choose Green Valley Hotel again!
The location isn't the best but it's really not that far into the centre to be honest. We had problems with the arranged minibus from Lao Cai but they made up for it by upgrading us to a private room so that was lovely. Electric mattress in the winter is a major positive to this place too!
really dirty. sheets disgusting. first time in all my trips I see something so dirty,
Great hostel, nice and clean rooms. A good location that's at the bottom of town, but closer to the Sapa hills. I think I was there at a down time as there were not a lot of people in the hostel, but it had all the potential for a fun place to be in Sapa. If nothing else, it's well located and has nice rooms and a nice common area.
Very friendly and helpful staff, nice and cheap food, electric blankets provided in rooms really help to bear it through a cold winter nights, you get what you pay for!
It was freezing, but electric mattress helped. Staff is so sweet, family uses the same sitting room.
Great food, but bit nippy in the winter especially when the door to the communal area is always left open.
Nice and Quiet Hostel, the food here is quite good. Rent a motorbike and joined local tour through the hostel.
The weather was very cold and humid, so I really appreciated to have an electric matress to spend a warm night. The location isn't right in the middle of the city but you can walk everywhere quickly, so it's not a problem.
The place is humid but that is to blame to the environment. The attitude of the owner.compensates for that wth great music and assistence....
Nice Hostel with friendly Staff. Motorbike rental possible.
Nice little place, a bit from the down town area was nice and quiet because of that. Would stay again
very freindly and helpfull staff. no heating but they make up for it with electric blankets :)

Dorm room was smelly but clean. Everything was dump because of the foggy weather, but the fire place in the common area was nice. Hostel was located on the end of the touristic street and it was nice and quiet there, still close enough to everything.
I booked into this hostel for 2 nights and ended up staying over a week. Even though Sapa was very misty so the views were hidden I stayed around because the staff at this hostel made me feel so comfortable and 'at home'. An excellent place to stay.
Very very nice hotel with spacious rooms and great views from the windows! I had a heated bed ;) Great owners ! Miss Luu is one of the sweetest people i met in SE Asia! Highly recommended.
Stayed 4 nights in a 3 mixed dorm ensuite. The hostel is situated at the end of the main tourist street. Peaceful and nice view from the balcony over the valley. Good value for money. Only cons: Slightly funky smell in the room and the bathroom could be cleaner.
bed is comfortable, hot shower available. although the room and facilities are kind of old. staff are all very nice, they provide the pick up, laundry, food and drink, motorbike retal services ect.. with a very good price. it's very convenient and cheap ($5-7/day + gas fee) to rent a motorbike to hang around the town and villages around btw. that's one thing you have to do in Sapa. I enjoy my staying over there pretty much, a nice place to relax yourself and get close to the nature.
The room had mould on every wall and had a funny smell. This left the bed linen and all over my clothes with a bad smell too.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We were able to book a trek through the area through the hostel and the home stay we did was fantastic. Would highly recommend this place! A bit damp in the rooms but for the price who cares?!
