Good value for money! The pool area and bar is great, good vibe in the evening. The guys who worked the bar at night were really friendly, unfortunately can't say the same for the women who work the breakfast shift. A smile goes a long way and I found them all to be very rude. The reception staff also made us feel like it was our fault the driver picking us up from the bus station went to the wrong one. It's the place to stay in Hoi An but the staff could do with a lesson in politeness.


Pretty solid place for backpackers. Great breakfast, nice area to socialise in the evenings with their own internal bar, table football and a pool. Only gripes with this place is the staff sometimes feel like they are giving advice to backpackers with the intention to make some cash, so take their advice with a pinch of cynicism. Also the hostel can get a little noisy at night so if you want a perfect nights sleep bring earplugs or book yourself into a private room. The town is a bit of walk.


It is a noisy Hotel/hostel. Even staying in a private room on the top floor we could here people all night till 4.30am. The room itself was good but no hot water. The cleaners cleaned out room in the morning and left our door open forgetting to lock it again so when we returned our door was open for anyone to go inside. The hotel offers free pick up and other shuttles which was good. However considering the money we paid for the room we could have gone somewhere else nicer for the same price.


Clean hostel with a nice pool and quite cheap meals. Everything working well, and you get a free drink every evening, plus an amazing breakfast buffet. However, a bit overpriced.


Party hostel, pool is good, breakfast is great, lockers a plus, around a good time.


Great atmosphere, bar area outside and pool is great to meet people. Dorms are average, comfy beds but quite dirty. About a 15 minute walk into the old quarter but you can rent bicycles and motorbikes from right out the front. Buffet breakfast is good


If you want to sleep don't go in this hostel. There is a bar inside so loud ,music until 1 30 Pm..People come late night screaming like a kids every night, to many rooms like the hostels in the 90'..Anyway if you want to have a party and you don't have to wake you up the next day , this is the place...Good thing is that you can rent scooter on the other side of the street. !!! Don't thrust them about prices of the taxi, you can find more deals on the street 10 mt from the hostel .


Patty hostel. Load music Till early hours. But good way to meet others. Nice pool area. Rooms are ok. Food is ok. Location is not bad about 25 minute walk to old town.


Staff weren't very friendly, room wasn't very clean (mold in the bathroom), had only 2outputs for 6people! At least the breakfast was amaaaazing! For my taste, this place is a bit too big, it resembles more to a hotel than a hostel.


Bit of a party 'Hotel' but guests are overall nice people and as long as you are not in room with a group die hard partiers you will have a good stay. Rooms were cleaned every day, breakfast is pretty extensive and better than you would find in almost any hostel. The outside common area is big and is a great place to start your evening.Swimming pool, pool table, fussball table and the option to select your own music included. Motorbike parking is good and safe during the night.


The hostel itself was okay. It had a really social atmosphere and I met really amazing people that made it worth it.

Hostel itself was decent and had a nice social atmosphere. The staff however - Besides a couple of them - were rude, every time you went to the reception desk they made you feel like you were inconveniencing them, they would wake you up hours before check out to remind you, or come in and change bed sheets of the people that had already left. Yet when we turned up, we had to wait past 12 to check in... Very unprofessional.


Its a bit run down and dirty. The free breakfast is good though


There's a main front desk lady that speaks very good English & she was very helpful! The pool is definitely a plus during the hot season! The beds are just really sketchy it shakes a lot even when I'm just coughing so that's kinda funny. Otherwise it's not a bad location to stay at.


Great hostel, easy to meet people, clean, helpful staff no complaints booked for 3 nights stayed for 5

Very nice hostel, didn't use the pool but it looked nice. Close to the market and river. Hired bikes to get to the beach as its a bit far away, but overall lovely hostel, would stay here again


Good hostel, good location near the old town, but of a trek to the beach but it's a manageable cycle. Great bar and breakfast! Even get a free drink when you check in!


Great vibe and epic breakfast awesome to meet other backpackers


I really enjoyed staying at this hostel, and felt sad when I had to leave. The staff was nice and friendly, easy to make friends and the breakfast was the best breakfast I've even had in a hostel.


The private room was a nice size for us. Nice bars across the street with cheap beers. Definitely a party atmosphere with a lot of people around. Good breakfast.
