Don't stay anywhere else when in Hoi An. Great place not downside is it's a bit of a walk from town
Great buffet breakfast, and very easy to meet people here. Really good atmosphere. The location was also pretty good since it was a short walk from the center of town, but close to a lot of food places.
This hostel is great. I heard from other backpackers that this is where all the backpackers stay in Hoi An and that is definitely true. Staff is great and helpful. Breakfast is buffet style and hands down the BEST BREAKFAST i've ever had at a hostel and better than many hotels. Really great buffet with so many different food options. Location is not the greatest as old town is a good 15 minute walk. Also, there was almost never any hot water for showers. Otherwise great hostel!
We were a family group of 5 travelling. The staff were all friendly, helpful and very welcoming. It was so easy to organize day trips through them and their recommendations were always spot on! After the first night my husband and I asked to be moved to another room as the one we were in was very noisy with people chatting that carried to our room. The new room was perfect!

Sunflower is a party hostel but it's too big with not alot of character. Good breakfast though.
Good hostel. Could be great! The hostel, to be great, should organise some event to get everyone from the hostel together at the bar.. Great facility, but incredibly underused... Hoi an is a surprising treat for nightlife, but to meet people and predrink at the hostel would make the atmosphere better. Also - need to fix wifi in the rooms.
The rooms smell bad and could be cleaner. Also you advertise 4 bed dorms but they are 6 bed. If you do this people will always be disappointed so better to be honest. The staff were fantastic, thank you for making my time in Hoi An so smooth and easy
The dorm room was average with slightly stained and damp feeling sheets at times. The free breakfast was absolutely amazing however and the location is great as it only takes 2 minutes to bike to the old city and a bicycle is $1 all day ight outside the hostel.
Loved this place staff are epic Best Breakfast (get down before 9am before stuff runs out and still quiet)
Basically a hotel for backpackers. The free breakfast is awesome, and you can chill out at the swimming pool. Location is the big con, it is not close to town or beach. However, they have a free shuttle bus (sometimes) to take you there.
Sunflower is a little further from town (not a big problem, it's walkable or even better, a bike lady just out front rents bicycles for 20.000 Dong per day) than many other options that offer dorms beds, not many are listed here on Hostel World. The staff is wonderful and quite helpful. They rooms were clean with a great, separate shower in the bathroom! There is also a pool and a lovely outdoor seating area. The best thing about the hostel, and what you are paying for, is the buffet breakfast!!
Good value for money and staff are nice. Great location!!
Never ever met staff as rude as in this hotel. They hard sell there tours and services and are so rude to you. Insulting! Breakfast is awful. Keep it simple! They try to over do it. Rooms are large and relatively clean. Not all the doors lock properly so not very secure. They allow hawkers to stand outside the hotel who aggressively push a club. Personally, I would try somewhere else.
Quite far from the town but you can rent a bicycle. Some stuffs are quite grumpy and not so friendly but some of them are quite good. Breakfast was yummeh, it was buffet ! And they also have a small swimming pool which is nice.
This place is like a hotel but with with dorm beds. Good beds and the shower is over a bath which is a nice change from the toilet always getting wet. A nice pool, outdoor area and bar. Sunflower has an amazing buffet breakfast with omelettes made to order, pancakes, coffee, tea, fruit, toast, cereal, noodles, potatoes etc etc
Located at a 15 min walk from downtown, which is not really a bis thing. Good, clean pool, good common area with restaurant. Dorms clean, good facilities with dry bathroom because of bath tub. Friendly, helpful staff but not sure if they offer the best prices for buses and such. Bicycle rent in front of the entrance.
The only dorm in Hoi An for backpackers. It is clean, everyone has a locker and staff is oke. Breakfast is extensive and good.
They stole 45 us$ from a bag in our room. We slept in a private room and always looked our door when we where out......

Room was dirty. Animal droppings in the bathroom, cleaning ladies obviously ignoring them. Towels were filthy! Room looked nothing liked the photos on the internet. Rude female staff member woke us up on New Years Day banging on our door ordering us to check out (we were checked in for another night). Only positive was the professional male staff member who gave us lots of advice, he was very helpful. Would never stay here again.
