We loved this homely hostel, it was a great place to relax with comfy sofas and so many movies to keep you entertained. The rooms were really clean with great air con and fans. The staff were really helpful and the added bonus was the free breakfast and even free tea and coffee all day!

12th Nov 2015

For a traveller this is a lovely bit of luxury on a budget as you can stay in a dorm room but still feel like your staying in a fancy resort as you can use all the facilities. We loved this place with its relaxing atmosphere, beautiful setting and amazing food. The staff were so lovely and extremely helpful. I would 100% recommend this and stay here again if I had the chance.

This is a very basic hostel but it has everything you need for a cheap few nights in Kota Kinabalu. The staff are quite helpful and it's always nice to have a free breakfast!

I can't fault this hostel in any way, everything was new and clean, the staff were great and the location was amazing-surrounded by great restaurants and bars and a short walk to Koh San Road. The only way this hostel could improve is by providing free breakfast!

This hostel was quite basic but in a great location surrounded by great restaurants and bars. The staff were very helpful and phoned about a hire car and other bookings for us. I think this hostel could improve by providing free breakfast and installing lockers.

This was a lovely hostel, very clean, comfy capsule style beds and lovely hot showers. The staff were so sweet and very helpful. This wasn't the most sociable hostel of all but a nice place to relax. The small restaurant opposite which is part of the hostel is a great cheap and delicious place to have breakfast!

6th Oct 2015

We loved Samon's Village and we would definitely stay there again, it was in a beautiful setting by the river and it was really peaceful, a nice place to relax for a few days. The bathrooms are basic but we liked being out in the open, the treehouse and bungalows were gorgeous and the food was delicious-especially the red curry!

This is a lovely clean hostel with modern facilities and extremely helpful staff. It was quite quiet when we stayed there but there was a large common area perfect for socialising with the right people with plenty of games and even a TV! The breakfast was great and they even made it for us an hour early when we had to catch a bus one morning.

Eco Backpackers Hostel, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

28th Sep 2015

This hostel is a nice place to stay if you don't want to go wild in Ho Chi Minh but it was quite unsociable as the communal area was not very welcoming and the beds are in capsules, which is lovely for a cosy nights sleep. The showers are great and they do provide breakfast at a fee, which could be a little cheaper.

This hostel is great fun! The staff are crazy and keep you entertained at all times. This is not the place for you if you don't want to party but it's worth staying there at least one night purely for the family dinner cooked by Mamma. The atmosphere is great and a fab place to meet other travellers.

We booked a dorm room and were upgraded to a private twin room for the same price as the dorm was under construction! Great deal! The hotel was lovely, a great place relax and in a great location as it was in between the beach and the town. Breakfast was okay but not great for a hotel...

The family who run this home stay are so lovely and so friendly they even thanked us for coming to stay with the them which was really sweet! We rented a private room for two nights which was great value for money and it even had a small balcony. It is not a great place for meeting other backpackers but it's a great place for a quick stop off in Hue with a decent breakfast served by the smiley staff every morning, they might even makes you a packed breakfast if you have to rush for the bus!

We loved Cyan Box and would definitely recommend it, the hostel is really clean, the staff are extremely helpful and always bubbly and the breakfast is well priced and delicious. We arranged tours and buses through the hostel and they were very efficient, they even sent us an email to check we arrived at our next destination safely.

We loved this hostel as it is extremely clean with great showers and comfy beds, the staff are really helpful and there is a very informative board on the wall with all the information you could possibly need. The hostel is outside the city walls but there is a great night market round the corner for delicious and cheap street food. I would definitely stay here again!

This hostel is in a lovely building and there is a good bar with cheapish food and drink, the rooms are okay but the bathrooms aren't very clean. The staff were very unhelpful and a little rude at times, there was only one member of staff who took time to help us with our visas. The clean the rooms at 8/9am sometimes which is quite annoying and the reception seemed very disorganised, the mucked up the locker keys so someone else had the same key to our locker with all our precious belongings.

A great hostel in a lovely quiet part of the village, the staff were very friendly and the bedrooms were very clean and had great air con. The building the hostel is in is old and beautiful and we had a great time here, I would definitely recommend it. Make sure you ask for directions before you arrive as we asked people in the village but no one knew where it was.

This hostel was very modern and clean with great facilities. It was very conveniently located and the staff were extremely helpful, they gave us lots of detailed information about buying tickets to the Sumo wrestling and even wrote sentences down in Japanese for us. There is great free breakfast and the rooms are spacious and cool. I would definitely recommended this hostel 100%!

A lovely place to stay a few nights.

There were no lockers to store our precious items during the day which was one of the downsides,

This hostek was good value for money and quite close to the main area, walking distance.

The bathrooms were fine and the kitchen was great but here was another kitchen on the 3rd floor that was not so clean so use the main one! A good cheap stay!

This hostel has newly been taken over which is why it has no reviews. It is in a great location in South beach but most people staying there seemed to be living there . The rooms weren't clean and the bathroom looked new but again, it needed to be cleaned. There was a full kitchen but the oven wasn't plugged in and there were no plates or pans or cutlery, so a complete waste of space. There was breakfast in the corridor but only on one of the days. There are better hostels in Southbeach.
