Good free breakfast, not loud at night for me on the 2nd floor. Overall, this hostel is a good shout.
We stayed one night at the backpackers in Hué. The location is great and the staff are friendly and helpful. Good atmosphere, the night we stayed there was a quiz downstairs, which was a lot of fun. The bar offers food and cheap beer. The free breakfast is a bonus too. The dorms aren't too bad, there are lockers under the bed (you need your own padlock). However, for a 12 bed female only dorm there was only one bathroom. Impractical but not the end of the world.
Staff spoke good english and were very helpful when booking tickets to move on and looking for things to do in the city. Very easy to meet people here but not advised if you want a quiet stay. Drinks were average priced and free breakfast was good.

Great atmosphere, helpful staff, yummy breakfast, comfy beds, hot water. Internet is amazing when you are in range, but some rooms are not. One bathroom/shower in the 10 bed dorm which wasnt a problem in the mixed dorm, but in the girls dorm was diffiicult to manage. Ordered the burger from the menu twice and i wish i could eat it again now. The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly, and would recommend staying here if you are in hue.
Great atmosphere and a good place to meet people.

The street can be loud sometimes. The breakfast isn't good. It says free breakfast, but only the basics are for free. If you want ham with your eggs you have to pay 20.000 as example. The bar is cool, but the drinks are also very expensive.
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
