Typical backpackers so if you're looking for a quiet night then maybe not for you. However the bar does close at 11pm so it's not to bad. Close to attractions and resturants.


Had a perfect stay here! Loved the activities and happy hours in the evening. The female dorm was a bit crowded, I stayed at a mixed 10 bed dorm aswell and that one was way more spacious and had the toilet and shower seperated.


Stayed in dorm room for 3 nights. The dorm was quite small and cramped, but was adequate. Bar downstairs had good drinks offers, and closes at 11pm if you're looking for an early night. Breakfast included in price was ok.


Dirtier than most places

Perfect place to have fun and meet people. Great breakfast Clean bathroom Fast services Very nice rooms with lockers under the beds. Very much recommended!


Perfect for an overnight between Hanoi and Hoi An. Even though I liked the backpackers hostel in Hanoi more, nothing to complain! Don't stay too long in Hue though!


I didn't fell good in that place. There are many people in the staff but they are rude with not English speaker. The main toilet in the dining room it's dirty and dishes and other service were expensive.i have to say that they had a good breakfast!


Really good place if you like to party and meet people, staff was friendly but the bartenders not so much, they probably are used to lots of rude travellers so I don't blame them


Great place to meet other backpackers and plan your trip to other places!! The staff is cool and funny, rooms are cool! Enjoy x

Great social hostel in Hue within walking distance to the Citadel.


Quality youth hostel for exploring Hué, clean and well organised. Food was delicious and the bar has generous offers and free shots throughout the night.


This is a great place if your looking to meet other backpackers, they have a bar with cheap drinks and good food. We booked a private double room but weren't told we would actually be staying in an empty hotel across the road! The room was very basic, crawling with ants and the beds and pillows were rock solid. I even slept in my sleeping bag because the sheets were stained. I can't speak for the dorms but wouldn't recommend booking a double room here!

Thanks for staying with us while you were in Hue. My apologies for the room across the road. Thankyou for the feedback so we can rectify this problem. We are glad that you enjoyed the atmosphere and food at the hostel. We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your trip


Know what you're getting into! It's a good place but it's very fratty and loud. It has a college party atmosphere and there is cheap booze, loud music, and yelling going on throughout most of the night. If that's your thing then you've found the place. If you like sleeping but want to go out, just book elsewhere and hit the hue bars nearby this hostel.

Thanks for staying with us while you were in Hue. We agree with you. Our aim is to provide a fun atmosphere for backpackers to get together. If people do enjoy sleeping they are more than welcome to find accommodation that fits their needs, and if they still want to come and socialise they are more than welcome to join us. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip.


Stay here if you like a party atmosphere. The staff,location and food are excellent

Very nice place where to stay in Hue and meet other travellers, but maybe a bit noisy. Rooms are clean and ok. Staff is generally very nice. I only had a problem with one person at the reception. Very good value for money.

Thanks for staying with us while you were in Hue. Our bar and restaurant can be a bit busy at times. We always close it at 11pm out of respect for our customers trying to sleep in the rooms. My apologies for the reception staff who you had a problem with. We train our staff to give good customer service. Otherwise we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip.


The place was fine. It has a nice balcony to chill out but the possibilities to interact with other people are quite limited to your dorms... The social are is fine but not well designed to socialize... The hostel is just fine compared to others I have been to. The location is very good though.

Thanks for staying with us while you were in Hue. We do like our balconies. They are a great place to chill. Unfortunately we did not design our social area as it was part of the building when we got it. However many people do socialise here everyday and have a very good time meeting other travellers. I hope that you enjoyed the rest of your trip.


A little bit noisy, the internet is ULTRA slow that would barely allow to get anything done. Food is overpriced, breakfast is decent, beds are comfy and clean, restrooms are decent. The crowd is mostly scruffy backpackers.

Thanks for staying with us in Hue. Sometimes the Wifi in Vietnam can be slow. We have tried to fix this problem as best we can. We are always happy to direct our customers to good local places if they wish to sample good, cheap local food. Our western food is comparitively priced to other western restaurants in the area. Unfortunately we are a backpacker hostel so most of our guests are scruffy backpackers. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip


Hue Backpackers - what a great hostel. Stayed at one of the sister hostels in Hanoi and loved it so couldn't resist staying here. Stayed in a private room, air con, and private bathroom, all great. Great atmosphere too, pub run is a must for a great night out. Food at the bar is delicious! Happy to stay again and recommend to others. Thanks


Drink and tour prices were a bit expensive, with no towel being given which is a bit annoying. Otherwise, the rooms were great for a hostel, it has a great atmosphere for meeting new people, and the staff are very helpful.


Good atmosphere
