Watched the owner go off property to the bus station and find a guest that had overpaid to return the money she was owed. So incredible. Honest, and met great people there!

The hotel is clean and comfortable but it was our worst experience EVER. The staff at the reception are really nice but staff in the restaurant are not friendly at all and very rude! We (and other people as well!!) got beaten up by a taxi driver in front of the hotel and the security man just stood there, looking at it and DIDN'T do anything! Airconditioning works occasionally but not always. The breakfast is nice, it is a buffet. DO NOT GO HOME AT NIGHT ON A MOTOR BIKE!!
The pool and backyard bar make this a very easy place to meet new people. The facilities are nice and the free breakfast is decent as well. The major drawback was that pretty much everyone on the staff was cold, unsmiling and unhelpful. Other than that, I enjoyed my stay here very much!
There's a reason this is the most popular spot for punt travellers in hoi an. The best chill out social spot I've been to so far, with a bar lots of seating a swimming pool and billiard table. They let you play your own musi on YouTube so everyone can hear their stuff! Friendly helpful staff, clean rooms, great free breakfast with Asian food, omelettes and pancakes and fruit. 100%!
The dorm room was really dirty. The staff was rude when we checked in, after that they where nice. It is more a party hostel, all the people are going out after 11 pm when the bar is closeing. The breakfast is amazing, huge buffet and the food is really good. Sunflower is located out of town. Overall it was okay.
Good place to stay for a night or two. Excellent breakfast, nice and clean rooms and showers. They advertised happy hour, buy one get one free cocktail but the bar was mainly closed in the evening and the only thing you could get was beer at the reception.
Not a real backpacker hostel. Breakfast is big but not really good. Bathroom and bed good. Awefull staff. Unhelpfull, rude. At night there was nobody at the reception which means passports and keys were left unattended and we took ours. We changed places after one night
Definitely a party atmosphere but great way to meet people. Great facilities and amazing free breakfast.
Sunflower is between the ancient town and beach, which is good cuz you can walk to either place, but both would take for a while. It has swimming pool and small bar, but I didnt try it. The breakfast is pretty good, the staff is nice but provide wrong info sometimes. One thing bothered me is that the wifi signal is really bad!! In total, its a nice hostel to stay in Hoi An.
Bag was stolen from my room and the staff were very unhelpful ("it happens"). All they cared about was that I paid for the call I made to my uk bank (someone stood next to me throughout the call pointing at the phone screen shouting "that's $5" very aggressivly). The security here is very poor- keys open multiple rooms and random people were forever walking in and out. On the last day I was woken at 6,30am and accused of weeing over the balcony (I'm a girl?!) and shouted at. I promptly left.

This is nice hotel, the rooms are big and the staff is very friendly. We got a huge room with 2 huge beds instead of the 1 we booked. They will give you tea (iced or hot) whenever you sit in the lobby and they are really friendly. The location is good.
Great breakfast, great facilities, very good value for money.
Breakfast was diverse and good, yummy pancakes. Real party hotel but i could sleep normally.
Great breakfast, nice rooms, good location, good atmosphere.
Breakfast was excellent. The best so far in southeast Asia. The six bed dorm was a bit cramped. Would be better as a four bed. Social place. Most likely if you're backpacking you're staying here in hoi an because there aren't too many dorms offered.
its very nice to be picked up after a nightlong bustriip. The bathroom needs to be renovated. It would be a much nicer welcome with free breakfast; But what is offered is great.
Nice, clean, excellent breakfast, just a little bit far from the center
Great place for backpackers, had a lovely stay at Sunflower :)
Amazing breakfast. Nice pool and lounge area with a bar. Definitely the happening hostel in Hoi An. Right between the city and the beach. 40 minute walk to the beach, 20 to the city. Cycles are suggested.
Great place - the staff were lovely and very helpful! Not in the centre of things but you can easily hire a bike and cycle to the beach or old town. Great vibe and atmosphere - I would definitely stay here again!
