The chocolate pudding is what makes this hostel, and the free wifi was very handy! No locks on the doors of the rooms was a little unusual but not overly worrying.
A lovely and friendly hostel, the beds were some of the comfiest I've experienced and the kitchen was always spotless. It is a little out of town, but the walk is pleasant and the owners will provide transport to and from buses etc.
The kitchen was of very high quality, and the lounge with wood burning stove had beautiful views over the lake. Also enjoyed the nightly movies on the big projector. Lovely hostel!
A very clean hostel right in the centre of town, the only downside was the very clique-y nature of a lot of the guests since it seemed the majority of them were "long-stayers" and unwilling to socialise with the rest of us...
The rooms were spacious and clean, the bar was really nice and the free dinners were fantastic! Like most nomads hostels there was no drinking in the rooms, but the bar didnt let you take any drinks into the kitchen either, so that was a slight negative.
Brilliant roof too garden, nice free breakfasts and lovely staff- overall a great hostel!
A lovely hostel, the beds were very comfy and the location was great. Cheap beer and drinks, only downside was the lack of a common space to hang out.
The biggest plus to this hostel, aside from the location, were the staff, who made us feel welcome the second we walked in. A big thanks to you all!
Rooms are large and comfy and extremely clean, the breakfasts were decent and filling, and the owner was extremely friendly and helpful. He helped book us a taxi to the airport, a trip to the Cu Chi tunnels and was happy to let us in at ungodly hours after the doors locked. Thank you Phan Lan!
The pool was lovely, the bar served cheap cocktails. The dorms were a little cramped so definitely worth "splashing out" on a £7 private room instead, with a TV!
Just around the corner from Bia Hanoi St and with a great bar of its own, it was a really good hostel to stay in if you were up for some partying. The AC unit in our room broke one morning and was fixed relatively quickly, and the lockers under the beds were super handy. Although castaways is supposed to be a great trip, however, it is far FAR more expensive than other very similar trips to Halong bay.
The "hostel" itself is actually arranged in a number of different buildings without a real central area to meet people, and the corridor we were in was basically deserted. The bathroom was also tiny and not very clean and the water pressure in the shower was horrendous, but for Hong Kong prices it's as to be expected.
We only stayed for the night in Wushanyi but the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome, they were friendly and spoke very good English. They held our beds in the morning just in case we needed to stay another night, they looked after our bags. The hostel itself was in an excellent location in the pedestrian area, and next to the fantastic night market.
The most fantastic French toast I've ever had! Lovely and helpful staff, and the roof terrace was magnificent. Thanks so much for a great stay!
