Stayed in a superior private room. Duvets seemed dirty and I didn't use them. My companions in the dorm had the see issues with the duvet. Pool was nice. Breakfast delicious. Staff were not friendly at all. It was quite far away from the town. You could rent bikes though.
I was not a big fan of this hostel. The rooms were dirty, the beds were ridiculously squeaky and there wasn't much of an atmosphere. I travelling alone and I found it hard to meet people because it's so big. There is a definite party vibe, but not a cool one, a douchy frat boy one. If you're into that, then this is the hostel for you.
Staff not very friendly. Atmosphere buzzing. Bed squeaky and not the cleanest place to stay. But you are guaranteed to meet people here so it's worth it if travelling alone
Good buffet breakfast, free shuttle bus service to the old town, bike rental next door, big bar, pool and outdoor area, can't complain
I was a little disappointed with this hostel the restaurant staff are rude and don't actually care but the reception staff were amazing so it surprised me!!! The swimming pool is good and clean... The free breakfast is a plus as always and something to take in consideration!! The room was clean and we had a tv fridge and bath (but again you're not allowed to use this)... It's local to a lot of tailors which is good and the clothes seem fine :)... The bar across the road is also a must 8p beer!!
Contra: Dirty bedsheets :-( Staff was not very friendly/helpfull Locker in my dorm room was broken The food for lunch/dinner was okay, portion sizes were very small A rather long walk to the city center - but you can rent a bike just outside for less than 1$ :-) Pro: Swimming pool is a plus Best breakfast buffet! Pick up from bus stop
Good things - amazing breakfast, decent wifi, power all stayed on when the rest of the town cut out, cheap decent food at other meals, bikes and motorbikes available to rent for fairly cheap right outside. Not so good things - not right in the old town and not too near the beach, so not the best, not the worst location. Generally a bit too big, its not a getting to know people hostel. Bars not particularly cheap, it's an OK atmosphere. I reckon you could get better for your money!
Had a good stay. Hostel has a great breakfast and a pool, which was nice. There's a fun atmosphere
The hostel was good for meeting people, and the breakfast was good. Was quite expensive given how basic and old the rooms are but if people want a party then it's the right place to be. Staff were helpful when you asked and booked taxis etc.
Overall nice would have been better if provided towels on arrival.
Unfriendly staff. Cold shower. Cockroach in room.

I stayed in a private double room and it was clean, the bed was comfy, the room was cleaned everyday and the minibar was restocked everyday as well. It has a great common area/bar for meeting people with a pool, pool table, and football. Free buffet breakfast was excellent every morning. It is a fairly good location right between the beach and the central market.

Good location, unreal breakfast and cool pool area but the staff here are shocking. Pushing you towards expensive tailors in town and then when we (there were three of us in a private room) had stuff made and notified reception that our things were being dropped to the hotel they left our tailor waiting outside for ages and refused to let us know she was outside. Only by chance did I find out when I went down to reception to see where our things were. Terrible! We won't go back b/c of staff.
Good, not great hostel. The morning breakfast is awesome and their communal showers before and after check out is really helpful when you have been on a bus all night. The wifi was spotty in the room. The bar at night is pretty cool and the pool during the day is lively. Would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone coming to Hoi an.
Best breakfast, all you can eat from 6.30- 10am! Great swimming pool in the sun all day! Bike rental just outside and only a 15minute walk to the old town! Right next to Vina Ngon the best restaurant!
Best breakfast ever!! Really good atmosphere and the swimming pool is great. The why not bar (10 min walk) and okd town is 30 min walk or rent a bike! Beach is great and not that far (10 min by car). You can do the motorbike tour to Hué. Ik booked the motorbike in the hostel and that was great!
no outlets in the room which was annoying we all had to share two plugs. The pool was nice. Good atmosphere.
The beds are acceptable and the hostel is very clean, however, the staff are rude, unwelcoming and generally unhelpful. One saving grace is that the breakfast is superb (all you can eat buffet) and the food is very competitively priced. Would recommend but be wary if you're not much of a party person or expect service to be delivered with a smile.
Large breakfast buffet, social atmosphere, pool, real showers and comfortable beds were the upsides of this hostel. Otherwise there was slow internet, poor location, not quite friendly staff and no lockers provided. Anyone could walk in and doors were never locked. Great place if you want to party like crazy, but those seeking a relaxing time avoid at all costs. Fun if you're 21 and looking to get smashed every night.
