Great location and a pool is always nice but the staff could be some of the worst in the whole region. For all it's party benefits, Sunflower is not only expensive but is run by some of the most unfriendly, unhelpful, surly and mean hostel staff you will meet in Vietnam.

Was an Ok hostel, did meet other travellers, though was partially spoiled by the "Brits on tour" group who were being drunken idiots while they were there. Other than that the place was ok and the free buffet breakfast was good too.

It locates between the beach

Unless you really want the Brit abroad drink all day experience this probably isn't the hostel for you. Good to meet people and is good for a drink but some very large parties just spent entire days by pool. Wifi poor, staff not overly helpful and had dirty linen on my bed when I arrived

Really liked this hostel! Big, very popular, easy to meet people and the food was great and good value for money. Breakfast was really good and the overall atmosphere in the hostel was fantastic. Hoi An was already a great place to be, so this was just an added bonus!

Good pool, good breakfast, pretty sociable. Breakfast staff were rude - especially the pancake lady who would never smile and would just look guests up and down. Location is pretty out of the way. I would say it's overpriced.

Great hostel with friendly staff, yes they shout but it's a joke and not to be taken seriously! The pool is great and the food and bar are all perfect. It is a party hostel and there is a lot of people drinking and having fun. If this isn't your thing the. You may not enjoy it here but I had a great stay in a well run hostel.

The rooms are alright but the beds are very squeaky. I guess the best part of the hotel is the pool where you can hang with people all day long :)

The worst hostel I've been to in my life. Everywhere smelled like urin, the room, the sheets, not to mention the toillet which smelled like everything bad... even the lobby smelled like urin! Dirty sheets, dirty walls with feet marks all over, disgusting floor. Full of drunk and rude kids. This was what I found after a 24h bus ride. Only stayed for one night, than immediately changed to another hostel. Run from this place and don't look back!

Dare to be different and dont stay this hostel - its fun cos its sociable, but its massively overpriced and to be honest the dorms themselves are pretty rubbish and not cleaned properly at all

It is most definitely the place to stay in Hoi An... the moment you get there and meet people, the first thing anybody asks is ´Are you staying at the Sunflower??, however I found the staff serving outdoors to be very rude. I understand it was during the World Cup, so they must have a lot of drunk people to put up with, but it really did make a difference when they seemed so loathed to offer a smile.

Full of drunk teenagers doing the 'brits abroad' thing. Impossible to sleep the whole time because our room was on the corridor between the entrance and the bar which people were passing through all night. Te breakfast os decent and the rooms are clean (but without lockers!?) he location is awful so far from town so you need a bike to get anywhere. We were supposed to stay 3 nights but only stayed one because we had such little sleep!!

Best hostel ever if you're down to party. Staff rude and steal stuff but best vibe in hoi an

Nice hostel with a swimming pool, very good value for the money especially because of the free breakfast (that you get only the day after you check in (not the 1st day where you have to pay 3 dollars... Just saying...) The staff is not that nice but not rude either, plenty of people there but definitely more for the 18-20 years old than for the 25+ (just so you know what to expect)

This is a party hostel with loads of friendly people, a great bar and an amazing atmosphere. However, if you take that away, this hostel is not the best. I was shown 3 rooms before I found one without a broken bunk bed. They were "fumigating" the dorms so despite the fact I had arrived early I had to wait for even longer to get into a room. The floor in the room I was covered in sand and hair and not cleaned once whilst I was there. Bathroom was okay, again could have been cleaner.

One of my favourite hostels in SE Asia! great swimming pool, good nights out, Hoi An is just a great place! could do with more dorms rather than private rooms.

Cannot say how amazig the hostel girls were! We've travelled the world and these girls are the best hostel staff we've ever come across!! They had 2 of us sun burnt on the reception floor rubbing in fresh aloe vera plants! Amazing! Thanks girls x
