The pool, though a little overheated, is awesome, and makes for a great atmosphere at this hostel. Location is good, about halfway between the beach and the town, and bicyle rental is cheap, easy and worth it--the town is very flat so biking is a great option, despite the heat. I found the staff to be fairly unhelpful, with a low level of English and a fairly unaccomodating attitude. Had a great stay overall and would definitely recommend.
The masses don't lie--this hostel is awesome and its friendly, warm, accomodating staff is what makes it so. Definitely the best hostel in Nha Trang, hands down. If you do a four island cruise, consider booking outside the hostel as Funky Monkey is fairly gimmicky, though it is $7 so it's hard to complain. Also, be wary of pickpocketers at night; women wait outside hostels after dark to grab guys and steal their wallets! No joke, so many people were robbed while I was there.
In a good location. This hostel is very new and you can tell that they are still working out the kinks...hostel owner did not mention to me any policy about returning late, but was then annoyed that he had to open the shutter for us. Boys' dorms were damp and moldy and bathrooms were little more than closets with taps. The beds are not for claustrophobes. My stay there was overall fine, and I think I would stay there again, but you get what you pay for, which is very little.
Very easy to meet people in this hostel, staff are very friendly and helpful and beds are comfortable. Despite what the reviews say, it's not at all hard to find and the location is walking distance from all the major Saigon attractions.
Immaculately clean, easy walking disctance from the town center, lovely staff and great value for money. For the same price as a dorm in many places, you get your own room in a lovely new building with an elevator. Only con--not so easy to meet other travelers because you're in your own room.
The proprietor is great, she was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. My room didn't have a window, but the bathroom was ensuite and very clean, and the A/C worked well.
Very nice staff and in a great location.
Very clean and fun atmosphere, easy to meet people, but slightly more expensive than other, equally nice hostels in the area.
Fabulous location, right in the old city without having to climb tons of stairs! Basic but clean, the owners are very nice though there isn't tons of information available about the surrounding area, which is fine if you're independent.
Basic but lovely hostel a short walk from the town center. For the same price as beds in a hostel we got our own room which was a nice change, though not ideal for meeting people, if that's what you're looking for.
Lovely hostel very close to everything in Bol. Very friendly and helpful staff, good vibe. the, ahem, "theme" of the hostel is a little inappropriate but nothing that would deter a stay there.
Silver Gate is a nice hostel; they made an unfortunate mistake with our booking but went way out of their way to compensate us for it, giving us another night for free. Location couldn't be better.
A lovely hostel to stay in, apart from the fire alarm that went off at 4AM! Overall a very good value though.
