Stay was average, were waiting a really long time breakfast each morning, kept asking different waitresses where the fried eggs were, other guests got served a lot before us. On arrival reception staff were rude and robotic, no 'welcome to Backpackers Hué' or anything; they weren't wearing name badges so makes it difficult to make a proper complaint. Leaving our bags at the bottom of the stairs for everyone to trample over was not appreciated, didn't feel secure. Great atmosphere and location!
Our private room was very small, although perfectly fine for a night and perfectly clean. Downstairs seemed pretty lively with some awful quiz - nothing like a few sexist quiz questions to get everyone in the mood eh!
I absolutely loved this hostel! The staff was AMAZING! So funny and sarcastic. And they facilitate fun things for the guests like quiz nights and day trips. But the best part by far was Zach and Locky! I was only planning on staying one night but extended my stay because these guys were so much fun! They really went above and beyond to make sure all of the guests enjoyed themselves. My only gripe was the beers were expensive and you are not allowed to bring in your own alcohol. But still, tops!
Nice place if you want to party. Cool atmosphere. Only lot of noise in the dorms because of drunk people.
A good stay for a night in Hue and the hostel is always buzzing with people!
We stayed twice for one night and had a very good experience! Rooms were clean, just as the bathrooms. Nice big lockers under the bed and a good location! Staff was very nice and helpful.
Had a great time and its a really good hostel, The only problem is that it can be very noisy At night.
It was a fine place to stay. Has quite a lively downstairs hangout area, though quite crowded so not the easiest to just hang out in. Each floor also has a balcony area so you can just chill in the big hammock chairs up there. Hué is a bit of a boring town as far as I can tell, but the hostel is in an ok/touristy area of a couple of steets of restaurants and shops. The staff seemed a bit overworked.
This place rocked! Staff were great always helpful, loads going on at night which involved everybody, was very comfortable and relaxed definitely be back! Cheers guys!
The staff were what made this hostel but what let it down severely is that the air con broke as we arrived ( was leaking very heavy on my bed) and after informing the staff I had to wait 30 mins Until someone turned up claimed he fixed it and five minutes later it's was in the same state. And after telling the desk staff about the issue three times they eventually just pulled the tube connecting to the air out and let it drip outside instead but hey the hostel would of been great without this.
Lovely hostel with nice staff and in a perfect location. The rooms are nice especially with the balcony area outside. Good place to chill but also loved the themed nights and bar crawl to Brown Eyes!
Good place, only 6 dorms bed, with AC and good shower. Lockers inside the room, staff really helpful, just be careful when you do the chek-out, they forgot to gave us back our passports!
The guys here were lovely, really helpful and full of advice. (Ask the Aussi guy where the abandoned waterpark is!). Only bad point was crappy wifi
The hostel was fine, this was the first place on my trip where I have been bitten so much- I could see all the Mosquitos in the dorm so spray up! Comfy beds, good lockers, average breakfast- you have to pay for the extras. Bad first night but that was due to the other people in the dorm, out of the hostel's control.
Nice hostel in a good location. Rooms were nice, and the little decks off the front of the rooms was an added bonus. Wifi only worked in the lobby and was rather slow when there were other people there. Good location to meet other people.
One of the best hostels we stayed at so far. Amazing western food. Staff who organise the bar events and bar crawl are super friendly and sociable without being too pushy and over the top about getting drunk. Great atmosphere. Balconys are great to chill out on. Made such an effort for my birthday - really appreciated it!
Awesome experience here! The staff is so friendly (Lucky) and they make you feel so welcome and excited that you decided to make Hue one of your destination points. The beds are comfy. The rooms themselves are very clean. The atmosphere is great and it's in a nice location. I would highly recommend it!
really great hostel and staff does speak English. very centrally located and lots of activities.
We ended up staying here much longer than we originally planned as we loved it so much. Staff (Locky) were especially helpful and we had the best day at the beach with him. The food from the bar downstairs was great too and the evening entertainment was also great. Would highly recommend.
