Absolutely a blast. But: BED BUGS! Best atmosphere in VIetnam, except maybe their sister hostels in Hanoi. Staff was very nice and very fun. Breakfast wasn't great, eggs and bread. HUGE lockers fit all your stuff. One roommate woke up covered in bites, soon after (without complaining) they said they were moving her to another room and changed her sheets before putting another traveller in her bed. In the middle of the night while packing I saw a horde of bed bugs scurry away when I used my light


One of the best hostels I have ever stay, if we come back, for sure we will stay again. Since you stared booking , even you get problem during trip in Hanoi, or other places, write them emails, they try best to help you. And emails replied always with in few hours. Very helpful and friendly!


ReLly friendly place and helped us out when we got scammed by camel travel.


Nice hostel but noisy bar on the ground level where they do nothing else than get you drunk. Easy to meet fellow travellers though.


Hue Backpackers seems to be the place all the backpackers stay and as such it has a great lively atmosphere where you can meet other travellers (and lethal 2 for 1 cocktails during Happy Hour). The staff all spoke very good English. Only downside was that the breakfast options were a bit boring but otherwise a great place to stay.


Really nice hostel, it is abit of a party place but the balconies make a nice chilled place to hang out and meet people.


Amazing hostel. Lockers to well designed. Stafff friendly and helpful in booking onward transport and gave lots of info for hostels in the next couple of cities. Food was great. Evening activities fun.


Great location, near all of the sights, night spots and many delicious local restaurants. Short walk across the river to the Citadel. Friendly staff, clean rooms, great balconies on each floor.


Very good hostel! pros = breakfast, very laid back atmosphere and chilling out on the balcony. Excellent place to meet fellow backpackers. cons = DMZ tour I would not recommend because its mostly sitting in a bus.


Definitely a great place to party and meet people! Not for the faint of liver.


Everything was pretty good , with one exception - the wifi is horrible.


Small dorms with hard beds, lockers for every bed with no own light, facilities average. Hostel owner a little annoying when offering you trips. Place is hard to find, but a short walk into city center.


I loved my stay at Hue Backpackers, even though it was only one night! The dorm was clean and comfortable, the staff were all lovely and it was a pretty good location-the main tourist attractions were well within walking distance. All in all a very pleasant stay!


A great place with much life, atmosphere and lovely staff (for example Lan).


Nice rooms but they are never locked. Staff were ok but had an attitude when checking in. Breakfast was free but basic. Drink prices are overpriced, same with the food. Two doors down beets were half the price - hence nobody being in the bar. Would stay again though.


Helpful staff, but everything was quite expensive. The atmosphere is great but this carries with it that its often quite loud well into the evening and early night, can be hard to sleep. Rooms are nice and clean. Balconies on every floor.


This is run by the same people as the two Hanoi Backpackers (Downtown and Original) so you know it's going to be good. The beds are great and the bathrooms are clean. Dorm room was a little pokey but nothing major. The bar is really good and is a great place to start before hitting up Brown Eyes. Hue itself isn't the greatest but the self ride Top Gear tour from Hue to Hoi An that was organised through the hostel is worth a stop over. One of the highlights of my time in Vietnam!!


Good location, good beds, friendly and helpful staff. Thought out for backpackers - lockers for backpacks and valuables really great and lights etc. for each bed. Quick laundry. Could have done with a heater - it rained almost continuously during our stay so it got cold so nothing in our room dried out.

Loved this place so much. Staff could not have been nicer and they did a fantastic job at making sure everyone was included in the partying. This hostel is perfect for a solo traveller looking to meet other travellers. Rooms were clean and they have good lockers!


Cool place in Hue. Dorms are average, though you can lock your backpack in a compartment under the bed which is pretty cool. Nice terraces on each level and great open-front bar on the ground floor. Met lots of cool people here! The food was pretty decent too.
