This is the second time i have stayed at The American Dream Hostel. The first time was great and now since the premise has been upgraded my stay was even better. On this journey I have also stayed in conventional hotels where the rooms have not been maintained as clean as do the cleaning staff at the ADH. Thank you Marcell for the great breakfasts and your courtesy.
This Hotel is fantastic. The swimming pool is very clean and water condition superb.The food is excellent and far better than other food I ate in Hoi An. The kitchen staff are just the most polite and joyous people I met in Vietnam. All junior staff are gold. The administration staff find Westerners a threat or fools. When they get to know you they loosen up. Senior management I suspect has a tight regime in place. Sunday no shuttle bus down town. Plenty of bikes available.
New Star has an outdoor swimming pool on the second floor which is very clean. Location is slap bang in the centre of Tourist haunts. I ate at an Australian themed restuarant nearby the Vietnamese food was excellent and beer cheap.Hotel breakfast was for Europeans & Asian guests & very good. Fruit fresh plentiful.Only problem was the card reader apparently would not work with my Gold Master Card. I suspect that is was a means to get me to pay in US$ notes. Other card readers all worked in Viet
Staff fantastic vibe singing often so friendly. Food typical for Turkey good. Bathroom in lower area a bit of a problem with the shower head slipping off resulting in water flowing onto floor. Views from roof to die for. Locality for all the Mosques, Palace, Ferry, Tram all superb.

The Staff were fantastic a very happy group. i loved your happy singing and dancing. The shower head in the bottom bathroom needs repair/replacement because it can cause water to spurt onto the floor.
Transport to and fro from airport was excellent plus a free city tour in mini van was great. Staff are very helpfull and a cheery group.
"A family atmosphere" can best describe ADH. Lew the owner goes out of his way to welcome you and to see that an extensive breakfast is made available fresh fruit, cereal, breads, Rapheal's yummy hot cakes, boiled eggs. You can leave suitcases securely on checkout, Computers are fast. Barry, David & all staff are helpful. Thank you you for making my New York visit memorable Lew and Rapheal. Bruce from Australia.
Kim/Duong Thi Thanh Tam fantastic service, smiling faces. Hostel very clean in all respects, food is safe, the breakfast is included in the room rental and offers a good choice. The air conditioning is topnotch as well a fan is each room. Bedding and towels are spotless. Fruit and nibbles provided in rooms, refrigerator in room, multichannel TV, cold drinks available at desk, 3 free computers for guests. The Hostel was fully booked out and you can safely leave heavy bags here when going to Sapa etc. Top
Clean room, very clean bahroom, towells and sheets. Location superb in the heart of the ancient city, fantastic restuarants virtually next door i the Square looking at the Castillete. Superb church nearby, historic buildings next door, A very big surprise, About 15 to 20 mins walk from station down along De Gaul Street and hen along the Cannel to the Castilette and turn right, too easy,
The only problem is dust and grime in the lift and on ledges and in the airconditioner, it would only take a hand held vac to overcome these issues. The staff especially Tomo were superb so helpfull and the facilities were all a traveller needs.
