Was quite a good stay. The percentage I have doesn't really do it justice but I felt security was quite poor. Unfriendly and just slept. Was good to have your own locker but had to provide lock. Staff weren't as friendly as they could have been and found to feel ripped off at times.
Facilities are good but staff are unfriendly.
First thing to mind - why is there a swimming pool in the restaurant? Otherwise, the hostel was a comfortable and welcoming place for our 2 nights stay. Travelling and shopping was quick and painless as we were located within the tourist area. Bike/bicycle rental and tours can be booked at the store across the street. Oh, an extra plus for the awesome list of TV channels they have. :)
Good location and the most delicious breakfast so far. What was really annoying is that in doorm room only bottom bunks have sockets. Reading light or shelf would also be welcome. Facilities need an upgrade, but it's okay for this price.
Great breakfast, good location. Staff is a bit stand off-ish. Atmosphere is okay, not easy to meet other solo travelers unless you are in the one dorm room they have.
I would definitely recommend to stay at this Hostel! The staff is really nice and there is a travel agency which can speak very good english and can organise trips to a good price.
The hotel isn't the worst, it is walking distance from the old town, but the staff is its biggest let down. When we asked a simple question about where things were one or two members of staff looked so annoyed tgast we had disturbed their conversation and gave us as little information as possible. Also a couple of my friends jumped in the pool and said it was really dirty...
Good choice for backpackers, the pool is a nice bonus and breakfast offers a wide spread. Unfortunately our room had stale smoke smell engrained into the walls but our room was cleaned daily. Also there was a power cut in the whole town but the hotel has a generator which was a pleasant surprise.
Had a pleasant stay. Breakfast was also good! Mattress was firm and comfortable unlike other hostels around Vietnam.

Fantastic breakfast buffet in the morning, as well as helpful staff. The security was a bit lax at night, with the "security guard" setting up a tent in reception and sleeping for the night
Very kind staff, tours at good prices and the pool is a great help to withstand Hoi An hot temperature!

Very pleasant stay. Had a peaceful sleep. Love their breakfast buffet, eggs and pancakes. Location is excellent. Many motor, bicycle
Nice hotel. Room was quite damp, and the fan was very noisy. No Air Con. It was also quite cramped for six people. Pool available and breakfast included. Staff were really helpful in arranging bookings and tours.
Excellent location and very helpful staff. However the hotel could definitely have been cleaner.
The hostel was ok- the rooms were clean and there were lockers for your personal belongings. Breakfast was good. Just the staff seems a bit unmotivated, as if they know that there are so many travellers - so no need to be attentive to every single one of them.so, i didn´t feel too comfortable.
Pros: great location, good breakfast and good restaurant food, good group of people, pool (covered) Cons: our room smelt like mildew and even though I told staff 3 times, nobody ever came to fix our clogged bathtub. Staff were not the most friendly. Night guard would turn off lights in common area around 10 when he wanted to sleep. There's no actual safety box in your room, only a drawer in the front desk.
Private room was definitely worth the splurge, bed was far more comfortable than in the dorm where it felt like a board. Semi clean although I wouldn't eat anything I dropped on the floor. Breakfast was good when they didn't run out and wifi was strong through rooms and lobby. Price was right as it was cheap, don't eat at the hostel except for free breakfast not worth it
Ugly staff, thiny share bedrooms and the beds really seak, if the person at top of you moves you mouve foour times more, ugly place and i dont recomende at all. Stay away!
Really nice place to stay, the only thing that annoyed me is that we wanted to ride the hai van pass on hired motorbikes and they said they would arrange it but wanted confirmation ASAP as the company runs out of good bikes ... It was $25 but when it came to going it was just a rubbish bike from across the road that we had been renting for $4 a day, tyre blew on us and the bike was awful!!! Wouldn't arrange it through the hotel again!!
