Very mixed bag; positives: - EXCELLENT place to meet fellow travellers - Pool area - Shuttle bus Negatives: -Organisation, double booking rooms, losing passports -Cleaners; trying to change bedding before someone has checked out and leaving dorm doors wide open if unsuccessful. -Staff - slow and unhelpful, unless you owe them money, laughing at their mistakes and your misfortune, they know that they are the most popular hostel and are complacent about it. -No luggage storage.
Amazing breakfast which is included. Lovely pool and restaurant/bar. Nice atmosphere but not too 'party', as some people have suggested, but lots of people willing to go out if you want. Not in the centre but good distance from old town and beach (a must visit)
Very friendly and efficient staff. Great buffet breakfast.
Stayed here 3 nights in the 6 bed dorm. No complaints at all, the beds being made of metal squeaked abit but that's the only Thing I could find to complain about. The staff were all very friendly and willing to help. Small swimming pool, outside bar and pool table and free computer use have the hostel everything you could of needed. Oposite a small shop if you needed anything. A few restaurants nearby and walking distance to the old town. Overal we met some great people and enjoyed our stay
This is the most publicised hostel around, there is another one along the main river but not much traffic/publicity. the all you can eat buffet breakfast was excellent. Bikes can be rented just outside the hotel at $1 a day. Please note that the man in charge is an absolute rat. take note that rental is only til evening time. if you want to use it over night you have to pay an extra $1. it is NOT for 24hours.
Good breakfast, little bit of a party-hotel, reasonably clean, good pool. Nothing spectacular overall (the average of 7/10 is a good reflection).
I felt a little old here (at 28!) but it has its pluses; excellent buffet breakfast (included in price) and a clean pool. You can hire a bicycle from outside the hotel for less than a dollar a day and if you extend for another day it means you can use it that night too - town is a few minutes away by bicycle. The beach in the other direction is about a 10 minute cycle and you can park the bike in a monitored shed for about 25cents. People here like to party so you'll like it if that's your thing
From the viewpoint of 4 guys travelling this was a great hostel / hotel. Had a pool which is small, but a social atmosphere around it and how big do you really need a pool? Everyone is a backpacker, the breakfast and food is decent, but restaurants over the road and next door also good. Helped sort out the hai van pass drive and generally an easy going experience. Volcano is 80,000 VND unlimited booze.....

This is a hotel being used as a hostel. Our room fit eight people ,it was cramped with no windows. The pool is pretty dirty and the food isn't great. For the price you pay for a dorm I'd expect a lot better.
located between beach and city center. staff very friendly! some dont speak really good english. very clean, looks like hotel with hostel facilities. breakfast more than awesome. would recommend this to everyone!

Great place to stay! The breakfast here is the best I've had in Vietnam, so much variety! Rooms are clean with good sized lockers, beds are nice. The staff are lovely! Thanks for a great stay!
Most of them staying here are partying backpackers. For those into it, this is the place. But for those who like some peace and quiet, you'll have to look somewhere else. Buffet bfast in the morning was superb. Great value for money. Location, a little far from the center of it all. If you cycle it's ok, walking is a bit too far. There was only 1 bathroom/toilet in an 8 bed dorm. It needs at least 2. Probably the only dorm to stay in hoi an. For what you pay, the place is not too bad.
Pool and breakfast were fantastic, beds were comfy though the AIRCON in our room tended to turn itself off after thirty minutes or so.
Pool was fun. Restaurant was reasonably priced. Friendly staff. Like anywhere else in Vietnam they'll send you to places that pay them commission. Dont count on their shuttle to town - but the airport one seemed fine ( but i didnt use it). Bicycling in Hoi An is reasonably safe. The dorms need more outlets (power points), otherwise it might have gotten perfect for facilities.
Don´t stay in this hostel if you are looking for a quiet night.
This is a very overpriced hostel for what it is. However, the atmosphere is great and the bar in the garden is lovely. The rooms are clean and the breakfast buffet is lovely!
Good hostel. The one where every backpacker stays. Nice swimming pool and pool table. In between the old town and the beach.
Big sunny pool area, easy to walk into town

A nice hostel - good rooms, computers, a pool and a bar/ restaurant, plus the staff are happy to help you book trains, buses and trips. Near the beach and there's also a free shuttle to take you further into the centre which is really helpful.
