Appeared to me as being the hostel everyone was in. I met so many people I had met before! Breakfast is legendary, neighbours do local beer for really cheap, you can rent a moped just by it too. Staff is welcoming and nice enough
The main backpacker place. Good hostel. A little away from the town and beach but wouldn't have stayed anywhere else.
Breakfast was great and the hostel was clean with a good atmosphere though a little out of the way it was still within easy walking distance of town. Only negatives were a bit of a mix up with our booking which was fine and that not all of the dorm rooms have lockers - tho mine did the 4 bed dorms didn't seem to which I wouldn't have been ok with.
+ Very popular with backpackers and therefore easy to meet people + Equidistant location between beach and old quarter + Sound value for money so far as the dorms being adequate and clean - Lack of lockers in dorms. Would feel much more secure if these could be added.
Fun hostel, not the cleanest I've stayed in though. All the beds in my room seemed to have a sandy residue on them, so I'm not sure the sheets were changed. It's definitely a party hostel, so go in knowing that! The breakfast is good, the pool is nice, and it was great having an ensuite bathroom in the dorm room.
Great breakfast and location. Lovely rooftop breakfast bar. New and modern. Can see beach from room. Not for meeting other travellers
Breakfast was amazing, helpful staff, rooms are really nice would recommend.
A bit of a walk from the town centre but it's a fab hotel!
The backpacker hotel of Hoi An. Literally all the backpackers on the bus from Mui Ne and Hue ends up here. The place has a nice little pool, included really nice buffet breakfast (not very vegetarian friendly according my picky vegetarian friend) and clean rooms. Booked a four bed dorm, but was put in a six bed dorm. Many newbie backpackers also ends up at this hotel, so don't expect to much backpacker etiquette in the middle of the night from them. Close to the old town. Bicycle rent.
Nice location just outside the center of town. The hostel seemed to be a bit overwhelmed with guests as bags litter the front foyer. Staff are friendly and the breakfast that is included is very good. $ 8 per night was a little on the high side but in general I think it was worth it.
Great hostel. they have a pool and a bar and everyone relaxes there. The breakfast is really really good.It is a very social hostel. Would definately recommend it
The best breakfast ever! Massive buffet every morning, definitely worth getting up for. Location was good, close enough to walk to the markets, old town and there was tailors and other shops close by. Friendly staff and the cocktails at the bar were really cheap, plus you get a free one with any you pay for ;)

Everything was really damp in the room and just didn't dry at all (smelly bathroom because of wetness). Worst of all, we had lots of bed bugs bites after just one night.... we're still suffering from it (scratching skin and bites all over)!!!
Most backpackers will end up here off the bus as they seemed to be the only hotel/hostel that sent a minibus to pick up people when they arrived. The free breakfast is excellent, and there's a free pool table and plenty of poolside seats. Just outside there's heaps of places to eat and grab super cheap beer, and the walk down to the market isn't far - maybe ten minutes. Negatives - limited hot water and locker space. Its also quite characterless.
Good hostel, great breakfast. Its in the middle from the beach and the town. Good information from reception.
Sunflower was the tourist Central Hub on my trip. Had large tourist turnover and the staff coped well. Lots of English speaking staff. Excellent overall. Rated it to other friends on my travel :)
Very nice place to hang out with other travelers. The pool is great!!
As everyone else says, there is an epic breakfast buffet that makes this a great value for your money. Excellent place to meet other backpackers. A little far from old town but overall good location (12min bike ride from beach, 10-15min walk from old town). Do NOT book airport transfers with them as they claim only private cars are available for $15 but you can get a shuttle at many places for 110k dong
