staff was mostly rude. like living in a fraternity house. however, the food was usually nice.

Cool place. Pool and bar area is great. Breakfast is excellent. Loads off ppl to meet.. Perfect for solo travellers and people who like to drink. Wifi is good. Staff weren't the most helpful and the location isn't the best as it's a good 15 min walk to the old town. Scooters are 5 bucks a day though so it works out. Would stay here again.

Nice backpacker place! A lot of happy Young people, nice pool and lovely buffet breakfast! There is a bit of walking to the center, but absolutly the best social place to stay in Hoi An. But unfortunately people are not so good at being quiet in the night do we didn't sleep well all nights when we were there.. But all in all a good place to stay.

Stay here when you go to hoi an because everyone does. Its so social from breakfast to hanging around the pool to being at the bar at night! Amazing buffet breakfast as well so well worth setting an alarm for that. Great if you're travelling alone like I was, met the people I travelled down the rest of vietnam with!

Very nice room and hostel. It's definitely more of a young persons hostel so if you want a party, stay here. But it's not too loud at night if you don't want to party. Very nice pool, very clean and nice pool area to relax by. It's a bit of a walk for town but you can hire a bike or scooter right outside the hostel which is pretty cheap and get to the beach and to town really easily. Would definitely stay again if I was back in Hoi An.

good hostel for backpackers, but can be a little like Brits Abroad. There is another backpackers closer to town that has less of a schoolies feel about it. great breakfast though, and some fun times to be had.

The only place to meet people was by the pool. Wasn't the best place to stay too be sociable, unless you're into heavy drinking. Amazing breakfast though!

Ok, but You can get better value for your money. Great to meet travellers and breakfast is awsome. Some of the staff was very helpful, others absolutely unfriendly compared to other places in Vietnam.

Good fun, nice pool, good bar and breakfast buffet. Right opposite the 3,000 dong freshbeer bars. Bit of a walk into town so not the greatest location, and the staff were much less enthusiastic than other hostels in Vietnam but would be more than happy to stay here again.

Stayed in a four bed family room which was really nice, clean and a decent size. Seems to be the main hostel for backpackers in Hoi-an and was only a 15 min walk from Old Town. Only complaint is that some of the people staying at the hostel were a bit lairy, but it is a party backpacker hostel so this is to be expected!

What I loved: awesome buffet breakfast! Great pool, great bar, great social atmosphere. Perfect a/c in the rooms and large lockers. What I didn't love: mediocre cleaning of the bathrooms - I saw a smushed mosquito on the shower wall on Day 1, it was still there on Day 3. The staff were really not that friendly or helpful. Answers were very short, terse, not friendly. Far from beach. A b it of a walk to old town. Overall: Just an okay place. Probably stay elsewhere next time.

Good things are the pool and the free breakfast. The rooms already had their best days. Many 20 year old teens partying all day at the pool and are really loud when they come back from parties in the evenings. So if this is not what you are searching for, better go to another place.

It is a nice hotel with a nice pool, a nice garden bar and EXCELLENT breakfast buffet. Close to town, but a bit far from the beach. Some of the staff are not really friendly but they still help you out. We had booked a two beds room and we got just one doble bed with no apologies. Check your bill before paying!! a lot of extras were being charged but they solved it very easily. Full of backpackers, so good atmosphere (although it can get noisy at night sometimes)

Little bit overpriced for what you're actually getting, as in reality anyone is able to come in and use the pool or eat the free breakfast! Good for travellers as its full of backpackers to socialise with though - good pool bar area.

Great Breakfast !

This place is really cool. It has a very social atmosphere and a daily crowded gathering poolside. I enjoyed my time here and plus stay again. Staff were friendly. The buffet breakfasts were wonderful.

This place is definitely a party hostel. If you are young and are traveling with a bunch of your friends then this is probably the place for you. The first desk is always busy cause there's so many people there. If you decide to get a private room, I suggest you pay $2 more and get the superior room..it's 10 times better. Other than that this place is cool...reminds me of big co ed fraternity house.

Great hostel, great location between market and beach. Lovely staff and there is a pool. But our room wasn't cleaned for the whole time we were there, it was filthy

Great hostel. Slightly more expensive than others in hoi an but the breakfast is definitely worth the extra money! Very sociable hostel. Most of the staff were really lovely and friendly. Would recommend!
