Everything about the hostel was great, apart from the fact when i asked where i could get my oil changed they pointed me to a "family member" who then gave me really bad oil for my motorbike, leading to a break down in the middle of nowhere..

It was an alright stay for the price. It was nice having breakfast included. The beds are extremely loud, so you could hear anytime someone moved. Great location.


It was just ok.


A bit weird how there is no one social area but only a room with a TV and sofa outside each dorm. But the the staff were friendly and helpful. Although the dorm room did smell a bit strange. Good location close to lots of bars and restaurants.


nice hostel, but the staff is what brings this hostel to the next level. love the sweet girls at the reception. they speak well English and are very kind and helpfull! unfortunately I don't like Nha trang as a place, too much Russians that ruin the whole vibe (harass local women, always drunk, make a mess, pick fights, shout and yel against locals etc....) Too bad because its a beautiful place in Vietnam if you like the beach..


Really nice hostel and friendly staff who is working there. Really weird that not so many travellers is staying there.


This place was ok, but prepare for scalding showers and the lockers look a bit dodgy. But breakfast was quite good and the staff very friendly. It's nice that there's sort of a communal area in the room with a TV.


Great location and amazing staff. No common room but every dorm comes with a living area (common room) and a balcony. Very clean and comfortable and minutes away from the beach and all the recommended dance clubs. Only thing I would recommend is replenishing the toilet paper more often...I normally had to ask for it myself. But I love, love, love the staff there!


HQ Cafe was alright. I mean, nothing bad to say about it but nothin really, really good either! Except the staff, the girls at the reception, they were awesome and super helpful! Especially the girl who played videogames with her laptop, didn't catch her name..motorcycle rental was also easy! Dorm beds were a bit too "loose" as they rattled around if you or the person below or above moved. Otherwise a good stay!


Very helpful & friendly staff, a basic breakfast, decent Wifi for everyday use, nice chill out areas in each dorm, but the atmosphere isn't guaranteed because there's not an overall chill out area in the hostel.


We stayed here in March, it's nice and central, short walk to the beach and plenty if cafes and restaurants in the area. The 8 bed dorm was nice and spacious and the adjacent tv room was a nice touch. The lockers are pretty flimsy unfortunately. Breakfast was adequate but not very filling. The staff were very friendly and welcoming.


Fantastic hostel, fantastic people, fantastic staff, fantastic location, very clean and very friendly... Cannot wait to go back there :)

The sofas in the room adjacent to the dorms were really good for chilling on. My bed was comfy.


location is great, short walk to beach, beds are comfortable, staff friendly and happy to help, not much atmosphere


Nice spacious rooms with modern bathroom and common area in room. Lockers are huge!! Staff are very helpful and friendly. There's a great Pho place across the road and it's only a ten minute walk down the street to the night life. Beach is a 10-15min walk too. All in all a great backpackers hostel :)


nice but not good to meet people


We arrived from the night bus at 5am. Reception is 24 hours but we just needed to press the buzzer to be let in. Very friendly staff, check in wasn't till 1pm but we were allowed to use the common room and facilities until our beds were available. Clean bedding changed daily and bathroom in the dorm was always clean. Not the most social backpacker atmosphere but I would deffo stay again.


Clean dorms and bathrooms! Beds are very comfortable. Every dorm has its own common room which is nice, but you only really meet people from your own dorm room.

Generally a nice clean hostel in a decent location lose to the beach. I found the staff nice. Although I found paying for the towels kinda annoying and the bathrooms were pretty busy !


Arrived at 6am and could not check in as the previous guests had not checked out but was offered the common room area to sleep until the room was ready! This was fine but the common area was a mess from the previous night! Rooms were good with comfortable beds and 2 bathrooms accessible one in the room and one in the common area. All guests had lockers assigned to them would have preferred it if they were in the bedroom and not out in the common area. Tv with up to date movies available to use.
