All the negative things you read about the hostel were unfortunately true in our experience. They warned us about getting ripped off but really they were the ones who ripped us off. It's a weirdly unbackpacker friendly atmosphere. We ended up reducing our time in Hoi An as a result. However, there were others who seemed to enjoy it.
Lack of ac in bedrooms, except for a fan. Staff were rude and not particularly helpful. Better hostels in the vicinity
Pretty clean and it can be quite easy to meat people in your dorm, but if youre not lucky and travelling alone the bar isnt that inclusively fun/easy to meet people. Breakfast is great but staff are seriously sassy and tbh just rude. Was filling a v. small bottle up with water at breakfast and rather than just telling me to stop, she literally slapped my hand away and was yelling at me to stop in the middle of the restaurant.

Lush hotel hostel thing.. Basically a hotel with bunk beds. Clean as you'd need it to be, get an ensuite in all the dorms which is soooo good knowing you dont have to stagger down the hallway just to have a piss in the middle of the night. Pool looked good (didn't go in but good vibes around the area all day) nice drinks, good breakfast, 10 min bicycle ride to the old town and plenty of bike rent places literally over the road, heavy night life!!!!
We stayed in a private double room. We were disappointed with the extremely dirty stained bed linen on arrival and the overall cleanliness of the room and bathroom was extremely poor. The staff are very rude and unwelcoming. The atmosphere suits young groups who just want to go out drinking - we felt like we were in Magaluf or Malia!
We stayer for 4 nights. The first day we arrived after a 10 hour bus ride in the evening. We had to sleep in 1 bed because they made a mistake.. We added 1 night to our stay but they forgot to confirm it so we had to upgrade to a private room. Then they made the 3rd misstake not to confirm another extention so we had to move to another hotel. The staff was really Nice but after so Many mistakes we were disappointed.
Slightly out of the main area but only 20 min walk or cheap taxi from the bars and old town. Free breakfast buffet is great. Lockers in rooms
Very expensive compared to most of Vietnams hostels and not really worth the money. So many people there so good atmosphere, and the pool helps a lot. Free breakfast very good. However, bed didn't look very clean on arrival and is a fair distance from the two key elements of Hoi An: 25 minute walk to Hoi An Main Street, and a 15 min bike ride to beach. Security could also be improved, door always seemed unlocked and although lockers provided, weren't the best.
Very social place to meet people . Slightly out of town but can walk or get a buckle as well as cycle to the beach. Amazing breakfast!! Would recommend
This place is overrated. The wifi never works, many times there was no hot water, the staff doesn't speak much English and they don't really want to help you. We booked a tour to My Son for 130,000VND including transport and a guide but they put us on a group other hotels. The group was way too big ; about 50 people. And the bus on the was back only drops people in one spot in Hoi An, we had to take a taxi back to the hotel... Also when I got my Lundry back, I wasn't even sure they washed it!

Good hostel, nice pool and bar, rooms were clean. But the staff were quite rude and location i thought was bit far out, its not safe to walk home alone as a girl or small group
Great hotel. Rooms are clean and the included breakfast is nice. The location of the hotel is okay, if you don't mind to walk 15 to 20 minutes in the heat to the center of the city. Next time I would take a hotel more in the center of the city, 'cause, for me, the hotels facilities didn't make up for the 15 to 20 minutes walk.
Good atmosphere and lovely pool with good breakfast. The rooms are very dirty and seemed like they hadn't been properly cleaned in a while. The beds were also dirty. The air conditioning in our room did not work.
This hostel has great facilities with a lovely pool and area for drinks and socialising. The rooms felt like a prison cell and the bathroom was dirty and run down. The shower curtain was dirty, torn and the shower was faulty and didn't work half the time. Staff were not very friendly when enquiring about anything and when I booked the easy rider I was not that impressed with the service.
A bit disorganised but staff were mostly friendly and helpful, dorms are spacious and the bar/pool area is great. Brilliant free breakfast and great atmosphere. I'd stay again.
Good location! Defs the party hostel if u are trying to sleep don't sleep on the 2nd floor. The pool is very clean & nice! Also the free breakfast buffet is so yummy lots of little crepes! The staff were kinda sassy. But overall it's good! B
It's 30 minute walk into town which we thought was too far. It's dirty and the staff aren't very helpful.
Don't understand the hype. Booked this on many verbal recommendations. It's a hybrid of a party hostel come hotel. Staff were quite rude. Ordering things from the poolside bar was met with a "YOU PAY NOW" - a bit much when staying in a double room. No chance of a tab or paying for a beer at the end. Full of 'lads on tour'. Slow internet. So far out of town. 25-30min walk into where you want to be. Room 201 has a damp problem with rotten mouldy curtains. Stay elsewhere.
