Keep in mind all the Vietnam backpacker chain hostels offer the same thing, a great hostel but definitely one focused on partying. The facilities and location are great and they will get you a motorbike for 200k dong, the tours are overpriced but that´s the price they charge for comfort. I had a problem with my gas being syphoned out overnight and got really pissed about it but after talking with the manager I got enough money refunded to recharge the tank.


Great location in old town, can walk to palace in 20 mins, surrounded by shops, bars and cafes. Has enjoyable tour of DMZ area. Not as lively or party like atmosphere as its other hostels in Hanoi


We found cockroaches, and it's just not a clean place in general. The worst part has to be the staff, however. The staff referred to my indian friend as, "the black girl". It took half an hour to process her key deposit back, and they were just not helpful in general. Very bro-ish atmosphere.


Hostel ok... Not amazing but ok. Good location close to the bars in Hue. Quite a walk though to the cidatel! Hue is such a beautiful city! You definitely should go there!


I was pleasantly surprised with Hue Backpackers. I didn't find the staff too helpful but overall very happy with my stay


Building was nice, nice neighborhood. Room wasn't too big or comfortable, but ok.


There's not much to do in Hue so it's a fun place to stay if you're looking to party and meet other travelers. The happy hour is a great way to meet people and everyone usually ends up going out together. I found the beds comfy and rooms clean.


Graet little hostel, clean, friendly and good location. Would stay here again.


There was one girl behind reception who seemed annoyed any time I approached the desk. It's your job sweetheart! It's amazing how much one person can affect your liking of a place.


Friendly atmosphere, easy to meet other travelers. The banana pancakes for breakfast are great!


Staff was great, helped me with SIM card/3G issues. They knew the area and ball park prices for taxis/cyclos/motos. Night staff English was not as good, but wanted to help. A little pushy on booking tours/tickets and transfers. Private room bathrooms could've been cleaner. Can get a little noisy if you have an early rise. Wifi, restaurant, and happy hour specials were average. Free breaky was average, but did the job. All in all, an average hostel in SEA for a decent price if you need a bed.


Party hostel. Private rooms are extremely small with a bunk bed and small walking space, but then again you get what you pay for. The staff are cool and friendly.


Good bar and restaurant downstairs and in the middle of the backpacker area.


Good hostel with a dangerously cheap happy hour. Good place to meet lots of people. Quite a walk to the citadel but close to food, bars and other guesthouses. Rooms were very small for 6 people.


You can't beat the location. The 10-person dorm was split in two so it didn't feel too crowded, and there is a big locker under the bed. I was a bit worried about the noise as this is very much a party hostel and I needed an early night. However, the second floor was very quiet and I got a good night's sleep. Staff are really friendly and helpful and even agreed to store luggage for people who weren't staying there.


Only stayed one night but atmosphere was good and location was favourable too. Slightly expensive for food and transport but cheaper places available nearby.


Had a great time here. Very helpful and friendly staff, excellent party hostel. Clean and airy rooms, good security in the rooms too


In many ways this is a good hostel. However, Wi-Fi was horrible, the style of the hostel is tacky (designed like a generic 'tropical' bar), and the guests are on the trashy side of things. Read: people will drunkenly get it on in the dormitories. :(


Happy helpful staff! Lots of people to meet! Very decent bar!
