The good fame made them be careless about customer satisfaction. The receptionist was very rude even with her unclear english. The bathroom kept dirty even after the cleaning has been done, no paper and no hot water. The services that the hostel offers such as shuttle to the airport, are half price at the agency next door.The Swimming pool is a good social area and breakfast is amazing!! I wouldn't recommend to someone who wants a peaceful place to chill out.
The staff were very rude. There were 7 people checked in to our 6 bed dorm and we had to ask 3 times to get it sorted. Bedding was unclean which isn't what you expect when you pay $8 a night for a dorm. Breakfast is good, the pool and outdoor seating area is nice. A lot of people recommend staying here because it's got a good atmosphere, however you can just come in and use the pool etc without staying at the hostel.
If ever I thought I need a sleep-sheet or protective cover, this was the place. While their breakfasts are the absolute best ANYWHERE, and I loved their pool, I only stayed one of the four nights reserved since the sheets and pillow case were dirty and there were wrappers and even half a jar of peanut butter next to my bed....uh, none of it mine. Definitely a party joint, which I'm down for most of the time, however, the lack of cleanliness could become hazardous.
Best place to stay - very clean, comfy beds and an amazing buffet breakfast! Stayed for 3 nights with friends but could have stayed longer. Definitely the party hostel of hoi an.
Loved staying at the sunflower, the atmosphere is really nice! A lot of backpackers, so it's easy to meet new people! It is a party hostel though, if you want peace and quiet this may not be the best pick. I liked it and stayed for 6 nights! The breakfast is great by the way! Nice pool and a pooltable as well!
Full of young people with a great atmosphere. Really good breakfast! Only issue is that it's a taxi away from all the nightlife but the taxis are cheap enough
Great hostel! However, it depends in which dorm you are. I had a perfect dorm with lovely roommates, but also slept at a dorm where the people where too loud and noisy. Just ask for another room. Vibe is good, swimming pool is nice, breakfast is delicious! Not enough plugs in the dorms though. Wifi is good, towels can be rent, bicycles are cheap as well. Enjoy your stay!
It's a nice place to chill out and meet new people. I even extended my stay.
Upon checking in i was assigned a bed as expected. After going to my room, i fould that someone else was in that bed and was told by the staff that i could sleep anywhere. That worked for the first night but then they gave the bed i had to someone else the following day. After a heated conversation, I finally got them to put fresh sheets on the bed that i was initially assigned and took that one. Security is poor. non-locking room doors and no baggage lock up.
Great place, pool is nice. You can tell its a hotel that was converted into a hostel, but it works. Beds are comfy, it's clean. Great place to stay in Hoi An if you don't want to spend 15$ at DK's.
Great vibe at this hostel. Good value for money, breakfast included, clean dorms and a pool for only $7 a night. The staff are pretty rude and unhelpful but I wouldn't let that stop you staying here. You can rent bikes for only 20,000 dong a day and it's only 10 minutes to the beach or 5 minutes into the old town. Word of advice, don't book buses with the hostel, we paid $25 for a bus to Dalat and later found out the same bus tickets are being sold down the road for $15.
Fun hostel, nice pool, loads of cold water showers
Nice hostel. Big rooms, awesome pool area, cheap food. I quite liked it.
It's a nice hostel, located between the city and the beach which is handy, however the staff can be very grumpy.
The dorms are ok. The staff was a little bit stressed. For 3 days ok.
Nice swim pool but the hotel was actually a taxi ride away from the town centre and the beach. Lots of young people, but everyone seemed to disappear at night.
Staff really rude and not service-minded.

The Sunflower has a good location, and the pool, bar and breakfast are excellent. Rooms were not cleabed daily unless they were privates. I asked to have my laundry done and it came back folded and smelling worse then when I gave it to them. In addition, they do not have spare keys for rooms. I booked a sunrise tour through them that was canceled morning of because of a flat tire on a bus.
Went to this hostel knowing it was a party hostel. Wasn't however expecting the state the bedroom was in! 3 other girls currently in the dorm had their clothes and belongings everywhere, and another room I saw was even worse. Dorm also had 8 beds instead of the stated 6! Wasn't allowed to change rooms despite knowing that there were free beds in other dorms! In the end left and went to another place round the corner! Only come here if you are one of the messy party people.
