The only place to meet people was by the pool. Wasn't the best place to stay too be sociable, unless you're into heavy drinking. Amazing breakfast though!


Ok, but You can get better value for your money. Great to meet travellers and breakfast is awsome. Some of the staff was very helpful, others absolutely unfriendly compared to other places in Vietnam.

Good fun, nice pool, good bar and breakfast buffet. Right opposite the 3,000 dong freshbeer bars. Bit of a walk into town so not the greatest location, and the staff were much less enthusiastic than other hostels in Vietnam but would be more than happy to stay here again.


Stayed in a four bed family room which was really nice, clean and a decent size. Seems to be the main hostel for backpackers in Hoi-an and was only a 15 min walk from Old Town. Only complaint is that some of the people staying at the hostel were a bit lairy, but it is a party backpacker hostel so this is to be expected!


What I loved: awesome buffet breakfast! Great pool, great bar, great social atmosphere. Perfect a/c in the rooms and large lockers. What I didn't love: mediocre cleaning of the bathrooms - I saw a smushed mosquito on the shower wall on Day 1, it was still there on Day 3. The staff were really not that friendly or helpful. Answers were very short, terse, not friendly. Far from beach. A b it of a walk to old town. Overall: Just an okay place. Probably stay elsewhere next time.


Good things are the pool and the free breakfast. The rooms already had their best days. Many 20 year old teens partying all day at the pool and are really loud when they come back from parties in the evenings. So if this is not what you are searching for, better go to another place.


It is a nice hotel with a nice pool, a nice garden bar and EXCELLENT breakfast buffet. Close to town, but a bit far from the beach. Some of the staff are not really friendly but they still help you out. We had booked a two beds room and we got just one doble bed with no apologies. Check your bill before paying!! a lot of extras were being charged but they solved it very easily. Full of backpackers, so good atmosphere (although it can get noisy at night sometimes)


Little bit overpriced for what you're actually getting, as in reality anyone is able to come in and use the pool or eat the free breakfast! Good for travellers as its full of backpackers to socialise with though - good pool bar area.


Great Breakfast !


This place is really cool. It has a very social atmosphere and a daily crowded gathering poolside. I enjoyed my time here and plus stay again. Staff were friendly. The buffet breakfasts were wonderful.


This place is definitely a party hostel. If you are young and are traveling with a bunch of your friends then this is probably the place for you. The first desk is always busy cause there's so many people there. If you decide to get a private room, I suggest you pay $2 more and get the superior room..it's 10 times better. Other than that this place is cool...reminds me of big co ed fraternity house.


Great hostel, great location between market and beach. Lovely staff and there is a pool. But our room wasn't cleaned for the whole time we were there, it was filthy


Great hostel. Slightly more expensive than others in hoi an but the breakfast is definitely worth the extra money! Very sociable hostel. Most of the staff were really lovely and friendly. Would recommend!


This hostel was a nice location in between the beach and the old town. It was big and spacious with great facilities. The staff were extremely friendly and always helpful to answer any questions and book tickets whenever needed. They were very efficient. A great place to stay. Only downside is they didn't enforce a no noise policy and we were staying a room that was in front of the stair case and drunk backpackers would sit on the stairs at 5am and talk at the top of their lungs EVERY NIGHT!


Nice pool table & swimming pool areas outside for common rooms, a pity those close at 23u. A sociable and comfortable place, I really enjoyed my stay.


Stayed here 4 nights. It's a party hostel so don't expect peace


We stayed in a 4 bed dorm which was fine but the bathroom was a bit humid and so the.walls were colored...beside that everything was great, the pool in the. backyard, the all you can eat breakfast and stuff. It's a 15-20 min walk out of the old town, but you can rent bikes at the hostel.


Good place to stay as a solo traveller who wants to meet people. There's always people ready to go out and have a few drinks. Just don't come here expecting too peaceful a night. There was a real lack of plug sockets in my 8 bed dorm and the hostel is quite a walk from the old town, but overall a decent enough hostel.
