Dont book here !!!! Farm of cockroaches in both rooms i stayed in, having my room sprayed without being told with pesiticides which left bed damp n me itchy. 1st room wasnt cleaned during most my stay with smelly and stained linen n bathrooms were a hit an miss. Staff for most of stay seemed to hate their jobs n all very rude towards guests for example.. painting room n using our amenities as they wished, demand you to leave every 15mins from 9am on your last day though checkouts at 11am.
The breakfast buffet is amazing and sets you up for the day! The rooms are pretty spacious and really clean
Amazing breakfast, great atmosphere... Bad front staff.
The female staff is rude and unfriendly. Starting at the reception, at the bar and at the breakfast buffet. It might has something to do that it's very good booked all the time, so they got ignorant. but all in all it's a nice hostel and very famous in HoiAn. The pool is pretty cool and the breakfast buffet is awesome (don't miss it). It's a party hostel and you can meet a lot of people there. The hostel is a 5-10 mins ride with the bicycle from the center and 15 from the beach.
We stayed in a private twin room which was lovely - really spacious and good value for money. The room had a bath which was such a treat after travelling for a month!! The breakfast was pretty average, they focus on quantity over quality - we didn't like it. Location is ok, if you don't have bikes you need to get a taxi everywhere. If I come to Hoi An again I'd prefer to stay in the Old Quarter within walking distance to everything. No safe for valuables in the private room, no towels provided.
To be modest the whole stay was unpleasant. Saw the place and considered walking the other way. The dorms were dirty, the staff was overwhelmed, rude and loud, and the location was mediocre at best. Not enough outlets in the rooms and beds that felt like they were falling apart. But many of the negative things can be contributed to the clientele. 20 year olds gorging on cheap beer and ignoring personal hygiene. Only upside was the breakfast and pick up from the bus. Would not recommend.
One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Quite easily the most social. Pool/bar area is great, rooms are a bit small but beds are comfy and bathroom is fine. Plenty of food options around and can hire bikes and motorbikes to get to the beach or anywhere around town. Would only stay here if I came back to Hoi An. Risk - you may get stuck!
Arrived here after the night bus and wasn't able to check in.. We waited until half 9 ish and asked again to be told no but then suddenly a room became available. Some people weren't so lucky. Our room was ok to begin with but the sheets were damp. However on the 2nd night we were woken by what we think was a rat that had climbed down from the roof, and was rustling around in our bags . Staff were mostly unfriendly & extremely unhelpful. Shuttle to old town was good though.
Great hostel to meet people and the free breakfast was one of the best that we'd had in Asia! The rooms were clean and the staff were alright - nothing special! There are people outside the hostel to hire bikes from which was really useful and the beach is only a 10 minute cycle away.
I didn't like sunflower at all, it's a good place for meeting people and having a party, but that's all. The beds are incredibly poor and dangerous, no guardrail and one guy fell out from the top bunk. A girl dropped a glass bottle and staff were reluctant to clean it properly, the pool was dirty and gave people a rash! Possible because they put furniture in, i do not know. I recommend staying at DK's House! Great staff, great beds, close to old quarter and amazing vibe and people!
The beds were really squeaky. To the point it was impossible to sleep due to the noise if someone moved. Also no hot water. Bathroom wasn't clean. Breakfast was the saving grace!

My locker was missing the door. Some staff had an attitude. The restaurant was poor. There are people waiting out front to sell you stuff all the time. The beds were loud. It's actually a 40minute walk to the beach and 15 to old town. That being said the atmosphere was great. So of you want to meet people here works pretty well. I had a good time but that was down to the other guests.
Nice breakfast but a bit far from the old city
Nice breakfast, cheap laundry. One powerpoint in a dorm of 6 was annoying.
Bomb breakfast. Great peanut butter. Basic service for a hotel. Hella girls here though. Bicycle rental is necessary.
Great pool / bar area where everyone's really chatty. Beds in dorm are quite squeaky. Location is a bit of a pain. Reception staff nice but bar / restaurant staff seem to hate the guests! Private rooms v good value. Breakfast huge, tasty, only marred by the staff again!
Best choice of breakfast I have come across. Beds are confy and rooms clean. A fair trek into town but a lot of shops to keep you occupied on the way.
Great stay at sunflower. The breakfast is amazing too. The location is good, about a 10 minute walk in to the centre and you can hire bicycle right outside the hotel of you want to go to the beach. About 15 mins ride. Would stay here again!!!
Really good atmosphere here and good to meet people, however the staff walk into your room without knocking at random times during the day - usually early morning and late at night, sometimes switching all the lights on and always talking loudly. I found this really irritating. One night we woke up to find a local man in our room, whom the security had let come upstairs and into the dorm, did nothing about it and wouldn't ring the police when we asked them to, we had to get rid of him ourselves
