Breakfast and pool are great. Staff are fine not overly friendly but fine. Location is quite far out of town, twenty minute walk. Bar downstairs good for being sociable and messy nights.
Lovely staff. Pool amazing and outside bar has great atmosphere. Great buffet breakfast free with accommodation too.
Amazing breakfast/ Very spacious and clean/ Lots of people/ The resto bar downstairs has cheap and good food/ Cheap beer across the street/ 15min away by the beach by bike. Watch out for the motorbike "mafia gang" in front of the hostel, people got robbed during night time.
My room was above the back courtyard which plays music loudly until quite late. Only annoying if you're planning on sleeping early in hoi an!
STAFF ARE VERY RUDE! No manners and no help with directions or any questions! . Besides that the breakfast , pool and bar were great !
It has a good atmosphere but the staff are awful, one of the most unfriendly, unhelpful I've come across my whole trip. Also the motorbike gangs outside- feel like the hotel could do something about this if they wanted!
Great place to stay, the rooms were private sharing two or three beds with others as I think the dorms have been taken apart. May have just been the week I stayed. Great pool and bar. The front desk staff were great. Only bad thing I can say is the bar staff could do with cheering up a bit, they seemed to really not like the guest though I think they deal with a lot of rowdy behaviour so perhaps I'm being too harsh. Overall very sociable and good place to stay as a backpacker. Free breakfast!
Good place, great atmosphere, good value. Moterbike group in front of the hostel can be annoying at night just ignore them.
We had a great stay here. The free breakfast was awesome with lots of pancakes and omelettes specially made for you. The pool area is really nice and the rooms are basic but good with large lockers.
The hotel staff were welcoming and helpful. They try speaking English; the house keeping staff are great too as they do their jobs and will walk into your room w/out knocking to clean and turn over the entire bed, incl pillows. You can rent a motorbike from the girl right next to the hotel for $5 rather than the hotel rate of $10. The breakfast was FANTASTIC w juices, fruits, cereal, freshly made pancakes and eggs. The pool atmosphere is very lively and fun!

Definetly not a bad place to stay in Hoi An, although it doesnt really have too much 'hostel atmosphere'. The rooms and the staff are decent, and the swimming pool is just a big plus :)
Huge hostel with a lot of young backpackers, very different from the cosy atmosphere that I found in other hostels. Depens on what you are looking for. Detestable staff. All questions annoy them and when you don't understand what they say, they make fun of you. Otherwise, rather well-located (a bit far from the beaches). Generous breakfast. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Big drawback for me was the behaviour of the staff!

Very nice place to stay in Hoi An. 10-15min walk from the old city. Possibility to rent a bike to go to the beach. Clean room and nice staff. There is a swimming pool! I stayed in a private room, not a dorm, I found it a bit expensive.
Staff weren't very polite but the hostel had a great atmosphere and an amazing breakfast buffet!
This is 100% a party hostel. If you are looking for anything else don't stay here. The atmosphere and breakfast are great ( but chances are you'll be too hungover to eat). The hostel wasn't very clean, the AC in our room leaked persistently. If you're travelling in a pair DEFINITELY stay in the private rooms they're significantly better than the dorms.
stayed here two nights.staff quite unfriendly and unhelpful.rooms not cleaned properly every day.no security here anyone comes and goes as they please.most travellers stay here though so good pool and bar area for meeting people.motorbike gang outside which harass you at night time. very dodgy area.far from the town and far from the beach.would not recommend this place
Really good pool area, good atmosphere at night. Dorm room comfy and relatively clean, food good but cheaper to eat elsewhere. Would definitely recommend for the social aspect
Had a great stay at Sunflower, great location, able to walk to both the beach and to the Old Town. Great atmosphere around the bar/pool. Stayed in a private room, comfortable bed, clean bathroom, TV, minibar. Very happy, would stay again and recommend. Thanks
This is truly a party hostel!!! They have drinks, food and a pool! To be honest, you can spend a day just at the hostel drinking and relaxing. If you're looking for a quiet environment, I don't recommend it. There were lots of young British people traveling and partying. Previous reviews said the staff was rude, but I had no problem with them. They were flexible and nice. Also, you can get Bahmi sandwiches outside of the hostel at night. You can rent bikes next door and the lady is really nice.
Worst hostel I've stayed in staff were awful. Overrated
