Very expensive compared to most of Vietnams hostels and not really worth the money. So many people there so good atmosphere, and the pool helps a lot. Free breakfast very good. However, bed didn't look very clean on arrival and is a fair distance from the two key elements of Hoi An: 25 minute walk to Hoi An Main Street, and a 15 min bike ride to beach. Security could also be improved, door always seemed unlocked and although lockers provided, weren't the best.


Very social place to meet people . Slightly out of town but can walk or get a buckle as well as cycle to the beach. Amazing breakfast!! Would recommend


This place is overrated. The wifi never works, many times there was no hot water, the staff doesn't speak much English and they don't really want to help you. We booked a tour to My Son for 130,000VND including transport and a guide but they put us on a group other hotels. The group was way too big ; about 50 people. And the bus on the was back only drops people in one spot in Hoi An, we had to take a taxi back to the hotel... Also when I got my Lundry back, I wasn't even sure they washed it!

Good hostel, nice pool and bar, rooms were clean. But the staff were quite rude and location i thought was bit far out, its not safe to walk home alone as a girl or small group


Great hotel. Rooms are clean and the included breakfast is nice. The location of the hotel is okay, if you don't mind to walk 15 to 20 minutes in the heat to the center of the city. Next time I would take a hotel more in the center of the city, 'cause, for me, the hotels facilities didn't make up for the 15 to 20 minutes walk.


Good atmosphere and lovely pool with good breakfast. The rooms are very dirty and seemed like they hadn't been properly cleaned in a while. The beds were also dirty. The air conditioning in our room did not work.


This hostel has great facilities with a lovely pool and area for drinks and socialising. The rooms felt like a prison cell and the bathroom was dirty and run down. The shower curtain was dirty, torn and the shower was faulty and didn't work half the time. Staff were not very friendly when enquiring about anything and when I booked the easy rider I was not that impressed with the service.


A bit disorganised but staff were mostly friendly and helpful, dorms are spacious and the bar/pool area is great. Brilliant free breakfast and great atmosphere. I'd stay again.


Good location! Defs the party hostel if u are trying to sleep don't sleep on the 2nd floor. The pool is very clean & nice! Also the free breakfast buffet is so yummy lots of little crepes! The staff were kinda sassy. But overall it's good! B


It's 30 minute walk into town which we thought was too far. It's dirty and the staff aren't very helpful.


Don't understand the hype. Booked this on many verbal recommendations. It's a hybrid of a party hostel come hotel. Staff were quite rude. Ordering things from the poolside bar was met with a "YOU PAY NOW" - a bit much when staying in a double room. No chance of a tab or paying for a beer at the end. Full of 'lads on tour'. Slow internet. So far out of town. 25-30min walk into where you want to be. Room 201 has a damp problem with rotten mouldy curtains. Stay elsewhere.


Location not the best but besides that has everything you need if youre looking for a buzzy place with lots of young people, and the breakfast buffet is phenomenal

Pretty crappy to be honest, but good atmosphere


We booked here thinking it would be great to meet people but in truth there are too many people there to really get chatting to anyone. It is quite a walk from town and walking back at night is scary as its deserted from around 10.30pm onwards. We would say the hostel was fine but nothing more. We chose to stay another night as we loved Hoi An and were annoyed to then find when we were checking out that we had to pay more for that night as we didn't book that one online - seemed a complete rip


Rude staff. Very Bad value for money.

Loved this hostel! Met so many people in Vietnam that recommended this hostel to me so I hurried and booked a room. The garden bar was super fun with a good atmosphere and the pool was refreshing and clean! THE FREE BREAKFAST so good maybe the fact that is was free is what made it so splendid but the pancakes were a dream. And reeeally good AC.


Staff were a bit rude at times. Pool and bar area is great.

By far the best hostel I've stayed in so far on my trip through Vietnam, clean, friendly staff and very sociable, also great that they have a pool in the back


It is a party hostel, so it is not easy to get some sleep. I think it is kinda expensive for the facilities, yet everything in Hoi An is quiete expensive. The WiFi is kinda shitty as well. The pool is great and refreshing.


This hostel has a few positives; it's x2sociable, with a really good bar area, and dorms are a decent size. However, as mentioned in numerous reviews before me, the staff really let the place down. They're rude, unhelpful, and every single time I went to the front desk, someone was complaining. The aircon in the room didn't work, we asked for it to be fixed and they refused. This made it unbearably hot in the room & very hard to sleep. Also be aware that the wifi doesn't work in the rooms.
