Incredibly friendly staff and guests. The communal pool and ocean side seating are make you feel like you are really at a resort. Just sharing it some other good people. I have no point of comparison in Mui Ne, but this was all I could ask for.

Stayed here but slightly regretted it after seeing our friends at Mui Ne Hills. They were paying less than us and they had multiple pools etc. Anyway, you cannot access a beach from the hostel, there is a pool but it's weirdly located in the fore court of the hostel. Most people sun bathed on the grass out back. Staff weren't too helpful and there were limitations with the language. Housekeeping decided not to do their job one day and just left the sheets on the bed. The shower was just a hose.
Super chilled out place right on the ocean. Good location and lots of good places to eat close by! Would definitely stay here again
Very pleasant, easy stay, lovely pool and beach terrace but slippery steps to sea
Great hostel. More chilled out than the sister hostel 2 mins walk down the road so getting a solid night sleep is no problem and you have a bit more space in your own pool. Of course, you can still go to the backpacker village for drinks, bigger pool and restaurant if you want that atmosphere. So you kind of get the best of both worlds. Everything else up to standard, good lockers, safe and clean with helpful staff!
The best place we stayed in our 3 weeks in Vietnam. We booked a family room that was on the second floor, felt like our own tree house! Nice waterfront area and small pool. Resort was quiet and peaceful. Staff friendly and the bus to HCMC picked us up right out front. Was soo happy to stay somewhere that was actually clean AND the wifi was good enough to skype back home.
Really nice. The rooms are very clean and modern. The Pool is small but totally ok. You can take a sunbath in the Garden at the oceanside. Only Swimming in the Ocean is not possible. There where like stairs into the Ocean but they where so slippery. Good restaurants next to the Hostel. And for party you can go to backpackers village. So if you want it more quiet definitly stay here in the resort!!!
Nice place to stay, right near the ocean (no sand beach). I would definitely come back again!
Everyone at this hostel is super friendly and very helpful. They are full of knowledge and are more than willing to go the extra mile to help. We could not figure out our bus tickets and a staff member called the office many times in order to help us out.
This hostel was great. Clean and quiet and right on the beach. Beach isn't much to speak of on this part of the strip though - more like waterfront. You get access to the pool at their sister hotel which is really nice: the village. Also, good and cheap food can be found at the village.
Loved it. Stay here not the village. Rooms are nice. Facilities are good. And you can easily walk to village for the bar without hearing the loud music if you want an early night.
Dorms were clean and bed large but the lockers were quite difficult, my bed light didn't work, some water was dripping from the air con in the dorm and one night, after coming back from the dunes covered of sand, showers didn't work, so we had to go to the village for it. It is possible to go to the village to enjoy the accommodation there : bar/restaurant and really nice pool, without suffering the noise, which is really nice!
A few things did pop up. My friend in the dorm room, her locker broke and the shower also didn't work for a day. In our private room, there was a day with no internet and only cold water in the shower for a day also
This place had good bunk beds and a modern ensuit which was kepts clean. The only security for your belongings is a large locker, otherwise your door to the room is unlocked. The pool is small but never too crowded. They sell beer and water at reception but it's cheaper elsewhere. They do laundry for 30,000 however if you hit the main street you can find cheaper for about 15,000. This isn't a party hostel so if you like your sleep this one will suit you.
Loved my stay at this hostel, it was nice and clean. Close walking distance to everything needed and really friendly staff. Would have preferred to have some higher security, as people that were not staying at the hostel would be hanging around the dorm rooms, and the dorms do not properly lock.
The resort itself was very nice: the atmosphere, the decor, the cleanliness. It was a bit pricey in comparison to some other resorts we heard of in the area, though. We had issues with the hot water and the AC, though the staff was quick to fix them or call in people who could fix them. I would stay away from the tourism information attached to the resort. The guy was very unprofessional, and not too helpful. I don't need to hear 'you should have booked your bus earlier' that many times.

Staff was great and the ability to use the facilities in the Backpackers Village which has a lovely pool is great. I wasn't so keen on giving in my passport for the whole of my stay which was kept just in a drawer in the open reception which was unlocked most of the time though.
I thought the hostel was very good. The swimming pool and all. Excellent.
Fantastic stay in Mui Ne - I'd definitely go back here. My boyfriend and I stayed in a 'deluxe double' and had a really great room with a sea view. It was cleaned every day, there's a safe to keep your valuables in and a mini fridge with GREAT prices for booze and water. Not really a party scene here but really nice vibe for a couple or group of people who want to chill out. (But for those who want partying the Backpacker Village is only 100m down the road). Excellent location too!
