Great place! Super friendly staff. Very nice rooms.
There are cheaper options of similar quality in Hoi An for independent travellers, but for young backpackers in a group, this is a good option.

This place is in the middle of no where and offers no free or easy way of getting anywhere. The only reason people stay there is because its rated well on hostelworld and it has a bar so you can get drunk with people you just met. My suggestion would be to get dropped in old town and stay in an air condition private room in a homestay with a local family for half the price. Will mean it's easier for you to get to the bars as well!

A fantastic place to stay. Everyone seems to stay here so it has a great vibe. Small dorm rooms and a bathroom, which is great! You can rent a bike outside the hotel and cycle to the beach an town. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The best buffet breakfast in Vietnam.
Probably the best place to stay in Hoi An, as it seems most travelers in the city stay there too. The place itself is a little out the way, but the walk into the old town is not too challenging and the beach is just a short cycle away. The dorms are clean, comfortable and quiet, while the pool/bar area is a great place to chill out during the day (the food here is also good and cheap). And, of course, the buffet breakfast is one of the best I've seen in a hostel.
bunk beds in the dorms are a bit flimsy and squeaky and the staff a very keen to change the bedding and make the beds, keep popping in. But the reception staff were very helpful letting us know where everything is and breakfast was pretty good, especially the pancakes, I would stay here again.
Perfect hostel in everything apart from the location
Great place to stay. The included breakfast was good value for money - the potatoes are great! The pool bar is good for meeting other travellers. Rooms were pretty clean and staff were occasionally willing to help. The door in the bathroom wouldn't shut properly and kept swinging open. It's slightly out of the way but its a nice walk into beautiful Hoi An. Even though there were a few issues I would highly recommend this as the place to stay in Hoi An.
The best hostel to meet people and party in Hoi An! Everyone on the backpacker trail stays here. The breakfast is a massive buffet with everything you could think of - perfect hangover food. There's a pool as well, but I didn't swim in it....there are a lot of rats in the area (!)
Stayed here for four nights and had nice relaxing time at hotel. Staff were so helpful, friendly and made sure we were ok at all times. I hurt my knee and they accommodated me as best they could. Also breakfast was very good!!
Just stayed there one night. The dorms are okay although not comparable to any "usua"l dorm i've experienced so far. it wasn't built originally for being a dorm, so not all beds have a light and mostly a plug - makes it difficult if you want to charge back your phone, camera etc...The staff was friendly. You can also hire bicycle for just 1$ a day, so really good price. However just the breakfast by itself is a good reason to say there :)
Didn't like this place at all. Room were clean, but the staff were unhelpful and rude. I got woken up by two maids storming into the dorm at 8am because some guests had checked out. They were dusting and cleaning around me which made me feel very uncomfortable. One maid locked herself in the bathroom to clean so I had to wait to use the toilet. I just thought they could have waited as I was also checking out later that day. The food was terrible. Not worth it for the price
My husband and I were disappointed with this hotel. We were given a room next to reception that didn't look anything like the superior room we booked. I had asked for a window and there was none. When I enquired at reception I was told that the window had been removed because the neighbours were noisy. That was a lie because there were actually toilets behind what would be the outside wall! The room stunk and was damp. I could go on, but there isn't enough room to add the rest of our 'comments'.
Great hotel/hostel in Hoi An. Dorms are four bed and spacious. Beds are comfy and the wifi is good. Breakfast is good with a wide variety just get into by about 8amish as it can be slim picking later in the morning. Bikes can be hired outside for $1 a day. Beaches are about a 15-20min ride away. You can walk into the historical centre in about 15 mins. If your heading out to Da Nang (flight/train) Go Travel offers 80K to airport 5 times a day.
This hostel is based in a former hotel so rooms are spacious and facilities are great considering the price. Location is good too. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel is outdated though. There are a lot of partygoers in this hostel so expect stupid touristy behaviour. The only downside is that the taxi to the airport (which they arranged for me) tried to rip me off. That is of course what every taxi driver does but if the hostel/hotel arranges one for you, I expect different.
Staff were great! Really friendly and the hostel had a fun and friendly atmosphere. You could easily get to comfortable here with a breakfast buffet to die for included ace little bar and pool ! Great value for money and a backpacker heaven with the beach and hoi an old town a bicycle ride away, which you can rent for 1 dollar! Clean and tidy, tours easily booked at reception and full of backpackers looking for a good time. We loved our stay :)
Great time at the Sunflower. Really easy place to meet people and easy to get to and from town with the shuttle or a $1 all day bike rental. Like everyone says, the huge breakfast selection is unbeatable and the drink specials are hard to top as well. The staff were friendly but not the type to go out of their way. Understandable, this is one of the only dorm like accommodations in Hoi An. Regardless of that, I'd still recommend the Sunflower to Solo travelers 100%.
Good place to meet people. Cold beer and a pool table out back so you cant beat that. Shot ways from the beach and even closer to town. Good value for the money.
10-15 min walk out of town when you go down the main road but it really isn't a problem if your staying for a couple of days and if you want there are scooters and bicycles to rent at the hostel. The staff are wonderful, very helpful! Free buffet breakfast with fresh omelettes etc. Good restaurant right next door to the left as you walk out. Perfect stay definitely recommended.
