Arrived to a good welcome. Used the pool but it was very cold as it's in the shade most of the day. Room was ok but sheets were dirty. Lots of teens celebrating aussie day so it may be quieter other times.
fun hostel with great breakfast. rooms could have been cleaner but not bad
Most of the staff were awesome, but there some that didn't seem overly welcoming. The place is close to the beach and close to old town and I met some really cool people there. Definitely recommended.
As a solo traveller I felt this hostel was one big group where it was pretty hard to merge in, too big in my opinion. Location is ~ 15m from old town and the breakfast is absolutely amazing, unlimited eggs/pancakes/fruit etc.
The main Receptionist whos name escapes me is absolutely wonderful. She makes the hotel what it is! 10 outta 10 would stay again!

Great staff and very helpful, fun nightlife and clean
Great buffet breakfast & pool/bar area. But the dorms aren't the cleaniest
This is definitely a party hostel and not for people after a god nights sleep. The beds are noisy and people come and go all through the night. The bar is decent and breakfast is very good value. The staff are pretty rude. If you are after sightseeing and exploring beautiful Hoi An I would choose somewhere closer to the Old Town.
20 min walk to the ancient town, you can hire scooters/cycles from outside the hostel for a decent price. Outdoor bar area is decent with a good atmosphere. Breakfast buffet is the best thing about this hostel. All you can eat and plenty of choices. My major issue with this hostel is the staff. The reception staff are un friendly and I did not find them to be welcoming at all. The bar staff on the other hand were nicer. The wifi here is poor and the beds I also found to be rather hard.
My second time staying in this hostel, The staff are amazing- Kind, funny and very helpful! The hostel is very large and the dorms are ok, the beds are a little on the hard side but I like it this way, you have a large locker to store your things but take a lock with you.. The attractions at the Japanese bridge is roughly a 25 minute walk and night life is about a 15-20 minute walk. I would recommend getting a bicycle or motorbike to commute doing any type of tours! :)
This is a party hostel with cool atmosphere. Quite a walk from the old town. Rooms are dirty and power sockets not working.
Easy walk to the market and old town, nice breakfasts.
Good breakfast, decent rooms, friendly staff, great bar and chill out area. What more could you want?
Great atmosphere. Doubles as a bar in the evening with big outdoor area. Very social and big enough to have lots of different groups but one big vibe. Staff are ok, kind of snappy but harmless. They will organise a lot of things and pick up service from bus station is a good feature. A 15minwalk from the old quarter which is fairly standard, bike rental outside makes it easy. Buffet brekkie too. Not good if you want to relax, but great if you want to socialise.
The best breakfast I have ever had at a hostel. Party hostel, so it's noisy and always a lot of people around. The staff was horrible and not at all helpful, and barely spoke english.
Good hotel/hostel. Pool was a nice touch. It is a trek to get into town though so you have to pay for a taxi if your drinking. Lots of people there and really social so it normally doesn't matter. Dorm rooms were a bit rundown but pretty clean.
Just spent one night there in 6 bed dorm and did not use much of the facilites. It's a bit long walk the center in the heat, but taxis to the old town is about 28K dong or get a bike just outside for 20K dong a day (be ready to pay parking 5-10K dong at certain locations). Since this is also a hotel the backpacking atmosphere is not so present.
The place is nice, it has a pool and a nice bar. The food of the restaurant is not nice, i would recommend to eat across the street. But the breakfast is amazing! The staff is not so helpfull, the always seem too busy and dont have time to help you, and the bus prices are cheaper in the travel agency across the street!
Filthy hostel. We stayed in many over our trip and this was definitely the most dirty. My sheets were mouldy and unfortunately blood stained. The bathroom, however, was cleaned to a satisfactory level. Friendly and helpful staff. A bit far from the old town but easily accessible by foot, bike or scooter.
