Rooms tiny, no space for luggage, blankets not changed and no top sheet!Location very good and 5min walk from the bus station. However, one staff member very poor service. Checked in to a room, then he made us move. Then the next night he told us we would need to move again as there was 5 people who all wanted to be in same room. This was not even true as another girl was already there and she was made to move to our room. Then he tried to charge us the hostel world deposit we had already paid.

I've had a pleasant stay, but unfortunately it was only for one night. The bed and bathroom were clean, they provide you towel and the breakfast was simple, but nice. The receptionist was very attentious. A plus is the elevator, an exception for all other hostels and guesthouses. Usually the buildings are high and you have to go 5 or 6 levels up on the stairs to the dorm rooms. I'd stay there again.

Room had lockers, but a pair of my shoes were stolen from my room. Facilities and breakfast are good. Showers, beds, etc. all clean all fine. Rooftop is nice but no bar or activities up there. We booked a tour in the evening, told it was fine to pay after, but in the morning were told we didn't book and it was now full (worked out to be a blessing in disguise as we had bad hangovers!!) Right next to the bar street with lots of places to go out, a really fun crazy place.

We booked in advance & when we arrived at the hostel we were told there were no rooms. After getting taken to 2 other places we got a room in a hotel across the road. When we were checking out they wanted us to pay more, we were firm and ended up getting it for the price it should have been. Apparently it is a common scam in Vietnam. Our breakfast was still included, but had to go to the hostel for it. They have a travel desk in the entrance which is quite useful. It is in a good location.

Great location. Parallel street of the beckpacker area. Look what they say and what they charge you for the lundry. Stuff is nice and try to help you. But at the reception one person don't know what the other person is doing. For trips ask also around the hostel in the street. There are a lot of agencies. It worth it.
