Bathroom and dorm room were unclean and cramped with only one plug socket between 8 people. Staff were average when dealing with us and we saw a girl get laughed in her face when she told them she had a randomer sleeping in her bed with her stuff no where to be seen! Far from the beach and main bars. Bar and pool area were okay, good for socialising. Booked 2 nights and only stayed for 1 - went to the Backpackers Hostel (DK's House) for a drink and wish we had stayed there instead!


Backpacker central in Hoi An, lots of people, decent bar and nice pool make it a nice sociable place to stay. The breakfast is also pretty big and varied. However the staff basically couldn't care less about running the place, are often quite rude and very dismissive, bag storage security is terrible, and the sheets/towels could definitely do with replacing or better cleaning Stay for the company, leave as soon as there is an alternative social hostel. Big bus ticket markup also.


the dormrooms were in a very poorly shape and there's almost no outlet that works. But the breakfast and the pool is amazing! And they have a free shufflebus going into town at some points of the day.


Good hostel generally, not particularly clean, great breakfast, good vibe, nice pool. A bit of a walk fro


Overrated, Hoi An is crying out for a decent hostel. Got recommended sunflower by so many people purely because everyone goes there - the food was crap, there's no storage room to leave your bag in, the bathroom was a state, and 50% of the staff were completely miserable. We also know of 3 people who caught pinkeye from the swimming pool. Hoi An is quality though, the only reason to choose sunflower is if you want to meet people and get boozy. Atmosphere was the best aspect, met cool people


Stayed in a twin room w/ a friend and I don't know what all the hype is about this place. It's in a mediocre location, the staff are horribly rude (we asked for towels, which we got begrudgingly, and rudely told not to loose them or we had to pay for them) the sheets were stained as were the towels. The hostel left shampoo in the rooms, which were half empty and had clearly been left from someone else's stay. I think this place is highly overrated and not good value for money.

Okay for a night or two but lacks atmosphere and the staff weren't brilliant..


Far away from the old town and from the beach , went to the reception twice and yet my bed was still not clean. The reception were rude and unfriendly . Won't not recommended. Instead stay at DK backpack hostel end up that makes my hoi an wonderful . Ps: bike in DK was free and sunflower has to pay for it .


Nice pool, nice bar with snacks. However our room really smelled bad and the staff are keen to earn their money. I would recommend for the atmosphere.


Thought the majority of your staff were extremely rude even when simply asking for directions!


Not a great hostel but not a bad one. About a 20 minute walk into town which sucks. Pool was great though and breakfast was also good. Having only one bathroom for 8 people which was pretty dirty wasn't that great either.


Restaurant staff is way to crancky and not pollite. Sunflower is a great place to stay but its nog because of the personell. You are a commercial company which should provide some level of customer service.


great buffet breakfast. sh1t loads of other backpackers.


It was the place to be at the time. Aircon was shit. Beds were decent. The bar and pool were pretty sweet. It's a good place to make friends


Was dissapointed in the room, in an 8 bed dorm with only 2 power sockets was not ideal, also when I was given my key and bed number there was no clean bed so had to complain twice for it to be cleaned. The room was messy and had a lotof things lying about the floor which clearly wasnt anyones in the room due to us all being new to the room bar one person. Staff were friendly and was a good location however i have stayed in better rooms for cheaper


An excellent place to meet people but the dorm rooms weren't great. Ideally in a hostel, you would see plug sockets for every bed. In our 6 bed dorm, there were 2 sockets in the whole dorm, which wasn't very convenient. I would recommend to stay here if you are looking to meet people but if your looking for comfort and cleanliness look elsewhere! We also sent our clothes for laundry here and they came back dirtier and our white clothes were permanently stained!! DON'T DO YOUR LAUNDRY HERE!


It is to big to be really sozial.. The laundry service is not the best


Didnt really underatand al the negativity about this hostel. Breakfast is amazing, its a social place, pool is Nice. Location is bad but they make up fo it with free shuttle busses into old town during daytime. Staff is really, really cranky though, except for when you chec out haha


Had a great time !


Very busy with a good, lively atmosphere. Need more sockets.
