My boyfriend and I stayed 3 nights. The owner was kind and helpful. He gave us a local map and helped us book a tour of the countryside. He even offered us his own personal umbrella for when it rained. We were given a room with 3 double beds when we only booked one, which was great for the space, but the room itself was damp and musty, making it hard to stay inside for any long period of time. Had to sleep with the window open all night and were kept awake by fighting dogs and crowing roosters.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Helped us organise a canyoning tour which is a must if you're in Dalat. Rooms were very nice and clean.

We had a wonderful time staying at Happy Hostel. Binh is a ray of sunshine, always smiling and ready to offer advice. He took us to his favourite restaurant where we enjoyed a lovely traditional meal for just over a dollar. The hostel is clean and the staff smile constantly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend it. Dalat is beautiful and the pace of life is much less hectic than in most Vietnamese cities. Thanks so much Binh. Hope to see you again. Ryan and Lucy

A great stay here, the owner was very friendly and helpful! Rooms are comfortable and clean (although patterns on bedding is a bit outdated!). A 5-10minute walk into the centre of town. Beware the rooster that wakes up very early!

The owner of Happy Hostel mister Binh is indeed probably the most happy person you'll meet in Vietnam. The rooms in Happy Hostel are nice and clean and staff is friendly. Though the Hostel isn't really near by the town centre and there aren't facilities to eat or drink.

Best hostel on our travel through Vietnam. A family business that make you feel you are staying at friends place. No worry’s the hotel manger Binh will organize everything and speaks excellent English - thanks again it was pleasure to stay at the Happy Hostel. The rooms are good price and big. Shower is working and clean – perfect. The position is 5min. from the center and you can get all kind of great tours directly from the hostel. Always again.

Great value for Money!!! Binh is a really nice guy, who welcomed us friendly and helped us with booking a bus for going to Nha trang. The one we wanted was already full, so he called all the other operators for us. The Hostel is not in the backpacker center, but it is just a 5min walk to get there. And therefore the location is quiet at night. Moreover it has a warm shower, which is about all you need after a day of canyoning!! (We heard that is not common in all the hostels in Da lat)

This small family run hostel is excellent value. It's managed by a great guy called Binh. He is kind, friendly and very helpful with whatever you need. His parents are also very nice people. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Located within walking distance from the town center, the Cathedral and the Crazy House.

Had an amazing stay over there. Especially because of the owner, Binh, he gives u all the information u wanna know and even joins u for some excursions into town. We had a good time with him ... He s crazy in a good way and always up for a laugh. And if the furniture of the place reminds one of the 19th century, which is very romantic.

More of a B&B than a hostel, so there isn't the same communal vibe that you'd get elsewhere. We had a basic private which had a very comfy bed and decent bathroom. It was clean when we arrived but was never cleaned during our 3 day stay. The receptionist is hilarious and very helpful with tips about the city, even offering to take us out for some food. The main attractions are only a 10 minute walk away so easy to get food/coffee/drinks. Would recommend!

We loved our stay at Happy Hostel. Binh was very helpful and friendly. He took us out for dinner to his favorite local spots and we had a delicious dinner. Thank you for being so helpful and friendly.

Rather basic accomodation, very friendly receptionist is nice but when he's not there the other family members aren't easy to talk to. They're nice people, one rainy night they organized supper in the hostel and it was very yummy (we paid for that..). They helped us book a tour with a company of our selection.

We had an excellent time staying here, the owner invited everyone out for dinner, we had incredible street food. It was also someone's birthday (he noticed on their passport) and he arranged a delicious cake as a surprise. We would highly recommend!

Nice owner, real fun guy. You have to like the decoration in the rooms... Beds were made with synthetic bedding, not too comfortable if you ask me. Got a shock from the shower switch you have to switch on & off again after use. About 10 minutes walk to the city center & for food

The owner is truly one of the happiest people I have ever met! He took the hostel out for some authentic Vietnamese food which was really nice. Afterward he drove me to the market on his motorbike because I wanted to buy some tea. Just purely out of the kindness of his heart! No dorms/common area so if you want a party place I would maybe suggest somewhere else but I had just got off a long bus and wanted a quiet place to sleep so it was really nice for that. Good distance from town too.
