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!!
The beds were comfy, the AC was awesome, and the location is great. Staff were quite friendly, but we were only allowed to check in an hour later than advertised. I understand this was because the hostel was particularly busy with a large group staying, but after a 10 hour night train this was quite frustrating and staff weren't hugely apologetic.
It is at perfect location, very close to hoi an old quarter, within walking distance. They serve a wide variety of food for breakfast.
The location is optimal for all sorts of things you can do in Mui Né. If you bring something to the attention of the staff (water spraying tab, leaking sink - cleaning staff never noticed it; or didn't care). They take care of it. Only that you need to interrupt the staffs private chatter something to get their attention. You can find cheaper bus tickets in town than are sold in the hotel. If you do the laundry be prepared to get not all your pieces back but have some new ones. Else the was OK.
The breakfast and location are very good but I stayed in the 6 beds dorm and it was almost claustrophobic, the room was ridiculous small for 6 people with their backpacks! There was no place to circulate and the lockers are not big enough to keep out backpacks. Also the cleaning lacks behind, since the hotel is very big with tons of guests, I guess they are just not able to clean it all. Unless you are staying in a private room with your mates it's ok, but if you choose the dorm I just say no.
Really liked this place. Dorms were.comfortable and clean, lockers provided but you need your own lock, good bathroom and amazing big breakfast. Great location, just two minutes from.the old quarter for the riverside and all restaurants/bars. Weirdest location ever for a pool - right in the middle of dining area. Couldn't swim out of embarrassment.
The location of this hostel is great, and its a very typical backpacker's hostel. The rooms are small, so if you're stuck in a dorm with very messy people like I was, then it may be difficult. I think the room wasn't very clean because some of the other guests had their stuff spread everywhere, making it impossible for the staff to clean. The staff was pretty helpful, however, they always acted like you were interrupting them when you asked them for help.
Really good hostel that looks and feels (when you're not in the form) like a hotel. The dorm itself was a bit cramped but there was a pool and restaurant area to relax in with cheap menu. Best thing was free buffet breakfast, so good. Staff were helpful and friendly but I stayed at a busy time and got turfed out abruptly on my 3rd day having only booked 2 nights, my own fault for not being organised, however it was annoying as they had my passport!
