A hostel that is a little different. Stayed in a room for 5 that had it's own bathroom and kitchen facilities. No bunk beds here which is a plus point. Individual lockers provided. Room is clean and has lots of character. Loved it!

Good location. It's near a subway station and in walking distance to a lot of sights. The double room was nice and clean.

The room they gave me was way too small for 5 people to share. There was lack of space for luggage and there were no lockers. The bathroom also had no locks which doesn\'t make sense since the room was a mixed dorm room.

I stayed here on 3 occasions but in the same room. The first time, everything was perfect. When I went back again, the curtain was missing and the air-conditioner broke down. On my last visit, it was still the same and nothing has been done despite numerous notifications to the staff. I had to put up a make-shift curtain myself. The staff were generally good..were helpful with information and spoke good english. However, because they changed so often, complaints regarding the room went unheeded for weeks. That's the only reason I rated them lower. Otherwise, this was a fun and nice place to stay at.

I stayed in a private room for two with an attached bathroom. It was satisfactory. The hostel has spacious grounds and a pool. The receptionist spoke good english and was helpful with information regarding the park.

9th Feb 2008

I stayed here on 2 occasions in different rooms. Space was a bit tight. Ditto for the bathrooms. On the 2nd occasion, the room was very messy and things strewn everywhere with little walking space (not entirely the hostel's fault..it was the 4 guys that were staying the room). The day time receptionist was very friendly and helpful with information but the guy at night doesn't speak english. Location is fantastic because it's very near the Ipanema beach.

The guests should help to keep the hostel and the rooms clean and tidy and, unfortunately, some guests forget this hostel�s principle. The night guys are the security guys and they are there to keep the hostel safe during the night. Unfortunately, they don't speak a good English but they are ready to help with anything the guests may need and if they can not understand what the guests need they are orientated to get in touch with the day time recepcionists at anytime during the night.

Room was clean and comfortable. The staff were very nice, helpful and spoke good english. The hotel is located a little further away from the ancient town but the walking distance is bearable. Rented a bicycle in the end.

Staff were helpful and spoke good english. They provided free pickup from the train station and can arrange day tours. The room was clean and comfortable. Definitely one of the better places that I stayed at in Vietnam.

Do not be mislead by the photos of the bedrooms. It looks nothing like it! The rooms were spacious but bare and it could have been cleaner. The only plus point is the staff who were helpful. Honestly, you\'ll be better off staying somewhere else.

Dear Josephine Ngiam. very sincere to thank for your precious concerned review and I opened the investigation for this mentioned-above serious problem, after that I summoned a femal staff, who has dealed with you before to read the sacked decision to her. Once again, I am so sorry for what has happened for you during you stayed with us, by the way, I would like to promise that our hotels will try to do our best to satisfy our clients and the mentioned-above silly mistakes will not be happen again. Thank you very much for your esteemed comment. Happy new year to you Hello Vietnam Hotel
