The showers and the toilets didn't seem too clean and the bedrooms were really, really basic. It was a decent location next to the big food street which was good for cheap eats. It didn't feel very safe because the doors were wafer thin and so took valuables out with us. The electricity kept giving out and the air conditioning broke down several times which wasn't great. Glad we didn't stay more than 2 nights but it was bearable for that amount of time.

A proper hotel for hostel prices. Breakfast included, staff very friendly, bicycles and scooters available for low prices, laundry very cheap and is all done for you, tumble dried and ironed at no extra cost. Location was a bit out of the way but I think that's where all the hostels in Hue tend to be. Would recommend to anyone, a very nice hotel which is excellent value for money. Best place we stayed in Vietnam.
I really enjoyed my stay here, it's a really basic hostel about 10 minutes walking distance from the old town, provides air conditioned rooms with towels and free breakfast which was a bargain. Swimming pool was available in another branch of the hotel about a minute's walk from the hostel, which was great after a really hot day. Good tours booked through the hostel, make sure to go to Cham Islands with the Blue Coral centre as they're so much better than the local one!
Very conveniently located hostel right next to Luban Rd metro station, and very good prices for rooms. The shared facilities were of a high standard but were not always very clean. There is a pool table but no wifi access from the rooms which wasn't too much of a hassle. Staff were very nice and hospitable. No restaurant unfortunately in the hostel but there are lots of really good restaurants nearby. Would definitely recommend as it made our stay in Shanghai so much easier.
Very clean hostel with good, basic facilities. Location was nothing special, although being next to the train station was a plus. It offered tours up to Huangshan mountain although at a price that they didn't fully inform us on. The staff's english wasn't great so it was often difficult to communicate. Nice common room with a pool table and good food being served from the kitchen.
This hostel was very conveniently located, just 5 minutes by bus to the gates to the park for only 1 yuan. Within walking distance to Wulingyuan's food quarter and town centre which was convenient for meals. Staff spoke very poor English but it was fine because there were leaflets offering the exact advice we needed in English (how to get to the train station, park entrance, park routes etc) which proved useful. Dorm room was a bit dingey, but the private double was very spacious and clean.
Nice hostel with very basic facilities and friendly staff. However, there was no real communal area to meet others in which, in comparison to other hostels, wasn't great. Bikes were cheap to rent at 10Y a day and is close to the bike trails. We had a very clean room but met a couple who had a cockroach in their bathroom that refused to leave! The famous Mr Wei wasn't as friendly as expected and the "3 free meals a day" came at a price of 50Y pp, for only 2 meals. Not very centrally located.
Absolutely brilliant hostel, very safe and clean with lockers in all the dorms, towels available upon request for free and very spacious rooms. Staff were incredibly helpful, helping us to book trains and buses for the next stage of our trip, acting as translators where needs be and phoning up bus companies to organise tours, without a commission and providing honest opinions. Great atmosphere, really sociable in the evenings with DVDs, music and a bar with cheap drinks. Thanks everyone!
Very basic hostel, really small rooms that fairly fit a double bed, yet very clean with clean towels and good bedsheets. It was somewhat air conditioned but it wasn't too effective. Chungking Mansions isn't the best place to stay but you get what you pay for. It was ok for one night but wouldn't stay there again, Apple Hostel is the best of a bad bunch though.
