Pleasant but average stay. Bar was noisy on the first night I stayed. Felt a little bit disruptive always having to come through another dorm to get to mine because our door handle was broken! Met some good folk though. Motorbike hire was a plus too.


Meant to stay two nights ended up staying four! The team there were really friendly and had loads on to get every one partying!


This is a nice place to stay, but more expensive than others in the area and not necessarily superior. I had no issues with the place, but I would not have stayed there for long because of the price. They do offer a nice happy hour nightly.


Stayed here for two nights and we enjoyed it. Bar staff definitely wants to help everyone have a good time and gave us free drinks for playing Jenga. The food at the bar is overpriced, but there is a banh mi lady who sets up across the street each night and sells sandwiches for a dollar!


Very nice staff, outstandingly competent when it comes to English. The Dorm rooms offer very good bunk beds and enough space to store the biggest backpack. Daily events guarantee a lot of fun in the bar. This place made my stay in Hue so much better.

Good chain hostel. Stayed in the Hanoi one too. A tad pricey but great breakfast included and its a really really social hostel. One guy who worked there even got a group of us together and took us out to an amazing Vietnamese bbq restaurant together which was awesome!


Was a great stay here, staff all very friendly and we were taken to a lovely restaurant where I ate some of the best Vietnamese food! Lots of free alcohol and something happening every night. Lockers in the rooms are huge so you can fit your backpack in it. Free breakfast is excellent


Great social atmosphere! Events are hosted every night, perfect to meet other travelers. Rooms are clean with each bed having it's own plug, light, and locker. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is great with 3 different options.


I have no comment especially.


I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, The staff are wonderful and so is the atmosphere, Stay here if you want to meet people and party, Hostel food is yummy! There is very little to do in Hue so it was really nice to spend a lot of time in a good hostel!


Great hostel if you want to stay and hangout at. Has a cute bar with cheap food and great drinks. Nice atmosphere. Bathrooms were a bit small and smelly but that's minor. We did do a tour from the hostel which was the city of hue tour. We paid $10 for the tour then got on the bus and were told that the price didnt include any of the entrance fees. So we each at to pay another $15(US). It cost is $25 for a half day no lunch. Way to much money, felted scammed.

Great place to stay. stayed in 8bed female dorm. clean and tidy. great atmosphere. good breakfast included. staff are brilliant. would deffo recommend and stay again


Good location, close to the citadel. Staff are friendly. Only criticism is that we were in a room of 10 girls with only one toilet/shower room which was annoying. Other than that good hostel!


Coming from backpacker downtown in hanoi, another hostel by the same company, I expected a similar vibe. I didn't enjoy my stay here as much as downtown. it didn't seem as social (maybe that was just me)


Overall decent hostel. Comfortable beds and good size lockers underneath beds but bathrooms are kinda filthy and cramped. Nice atmosphere with good staff and a great place to meet other backpackers this is definitely a party hostel.


This hostel is loads of fun, and it Isn't noisy at night! the bar downstairs has activities basically every night so it's really easy I socialize and meet new people. the breakfast is also nice. the biggest downside is that there is an 8 person dorm with one bathroom, that has a shower head over the floor next to the toilet. I thought it wa pretty bad, but still we're in Vietnam, so toilet issues are to be expected...


Had a good time here, as others have said it is good for meeting people. The dorm we were on was decent in most respects but the 'ensuite' shower room really felt like a cupboard, and not a big cupboard at that. Staff were all generally sound to us although couple of people behind the bar weren't particularly good (e.g. Q: 'please could we have some cheese on our nachos? At the moment they are just a pile of crisps.' A: 'that will cost you extra'). Overall had a good stay here though.


Good hostel, nice food, clean


I booked a ladies-only dormroom. The second night there turned out to be 4 guys in my room, who invited 3 girls in their beds. So far for a normal night of sleep, but mostly, I did not appriciate the naked guy that walked into the shower. I booked a ladies room to prefend seeing naked guys, but the hostel probably did not care about any of that.

Lovely hostel and great place to meet people. We had a double room which was clean and had a good shower. The bar at night is great fun.
