Mainly a party hostel the tours offered there are really expensive compared to local offering unless you're looking for the extreme party boat (nudity included we were told). Food is also quite expensive but decent. Good common area to meet people and socialise. Not for the faint hearted
Tucked away on Ma May, this hostel is walking distance from essential shops, banks, and minor attractions. Every day offered a new activity, whether beer pong, a pub quiz, or a typical club night. Staff were always courteous and willing to help. Dorms were spacious, secure, and regularly cleaned. My only complaint would be with regard to the WiFi connection, which was temperamental. Regardless, the hostel is a fair place to start a tour of Vietnam.
Can't complain about this hostel! Great atmosphere, very secure, staff are always smiling and very helpful, every night has something going on in the bar. Short walk from the Bia Hoi quarter. I'd recommend doing the Cadtaways trip they offer, worth every penny!
Best hostel we stayed at in Vietname and Cambodia! Don't book the Halong Bay cruise with anyone else! AMAZING 3 days - worth every cent!!

Amazing place, amazing people and staff and a great trip to halong bay. Private rooms could be cheaper, 25$ a night per person is a lot for a hostel.
Castaways tour is well worth doing. Bar and pub crawl is good craic. Recommendations: Have shower gel/shampoo in the rooms Have proper Vietnamese food in the bar Overall, a great place to stay.
