dear guest thank you for your review. im really nice to meet you. all the best to you and your family. sincerely. Peace


Location was not nearly as close to things as they said. The keep everyone in separate dorms so I barely saw others. Room had many insects including ants and beetles. Staff was very nice, offered some moonshine which was decent.

Deep thanks Peace


Arrived at hostel at 8.30pm, had booked it 2 nights previously online for 3 people but when we had paid for a taxi to get there they said they were full and we couldnt stay - apparently they "hadn't been taking bookings for the last month because of tet" (although it still showed as available online.) The staff members weren't apologetic that eve and were not helpful in finding us alternative accommodation. Only positive is the following day they refunded the 10% deposit I had paid!

dear Abi thank you for your staying. even long time ago but we wish we would say sorry to you. my staff werent knowing how to close online so thats why it was stiil selling on online. but anyway thank you for your staying at Newland Hostel. have a great time there. deep thanks


Ok, I usually don't write additional comments, but if you are thinking of staying here Don't!!! You might be thinking to yourself, "well the reviews don't look that bad." Almost every person at the hostel durning our very long two night stay was extremely dissatisfied. I cannot even begin to explain on how many levels the two men running the hostel failed. No water, no breakfast, no regards to reservations, completely rude and unhelpful staff, rooms and wc not cleaned! Worst hostel experience!
