really massive, cool hacienda compound vibe. great especially when not so many people there, just chill beers by the fire. staff are a bit pushy selling tours and telling you where to drink and smoke. coolest dogs live here! SC is pretty small so fine to walk everywhere

pretty hard and confusing to find, but got there in the end. way too expensive for what you get but I guess one of the only options. they only have one parking spot which is annoying too. nice kitchen and staff. fair bike ride down to the boardwalk and any shops. okay for a night

Absolute 10/10 hostel. The diamond in the rough that is the Russian stink hole of Nha Trang. The girls at the desk are the loveliest people ON EARTH they learn your name they joke with you and will be the most helpful ever. The Easyrider tours they hook up are awesome go and see some real nature and countryside ad get away from the mean meat head Russians crawling through town and the tourist traps.

staff were absolutely terrible, inattentive rude and aloof. the only atmosphere to speak of was the loud dingles out the front, no fun to be had anywhere else. never paid this much for a dorm bed, never again

Really is a hotel with a few dorm rooms, not hostel-y at all. Bed was fine and great locker provided but room very noisey next to big road. Common room had virtually nothing to cook or eat with and no drinkin allowed which sucked. Very close to great arts district

pretty good place for a bed, but a few problems. no social common area (besides the rubbish expensive bar in the basement, which gives the hostel a no outside alcohol policy which they obviously do not advertise), and because of this a nice 'hostel' vibe is pretty diminished. located in the financial district pretty far from Queen St or anywhere to go out which too

Thank you for commenting.Throughout the years,we heard our guests' comments and decided having a bar onsite was a popular demand so we ran with it - and it has proven to be a huge success!We have live bands most nights of the week and the atmosphere down there is just awesome.Having a pint in Toronto will quickly add up to a backpacker's budget, so we kept our prices conscious of that.A pint for $6 and shots for $3.50 are pretty hard to find - even Torontonians are hanging out with us now!

Great spot. Staff hooked me up when I really needed. Kinda sketchy wifi and cold showers and really thin blanket provided though. Other guests a bit lame but not really hostels fault.

Thank you for your feedback. We had an issues with the water heater, which required emergency maintenance. We worked as quickly as possible to fix the situation. We do apologize that you were affected by this. It's great to hear that the staff helped you out when needed! Sara, General Manager

the bed rooms were amazing (the new ones with curtains bed lights etc, the old ones suck) BUT this hostel is so over rated! no kitchen, not allowed to use bbqs, no decent common area, no internet in rooms, it just made the reception really busy and loud. wouldnt go back unless you want to spend alot of money in the restaurant/bar next door

they do not say in the description but this is a MISSION, like a christian run hostel, complete with bibles discussions and the new testament for free. was a big suprise when i got there, especially not being able to drink alcohol in or even outside the hostel. no security at all but i felt safe leaving my stuff on the bed. good kitchen with free food shelf. no wireless is a major downer. staff very nice but not much help with knowing where to go out etc. stay here for peace and quiet i guess

the 'dorm' was disgusting, a mouldy smelly basement with dirty matresses and pillow. the staff didn't know where the toilet was, and only had one key for a 10 person dorm (luckily i was the only one in there, except some guy who unlocked the door at 2am and slept in an unmade bed to disappear in the morning...) complete lack of security unless you count the lock on the door. expensive as hell! nice breakfast. the rooms were actually good, ONLY go here for a room!!!

stuggled to see the "retro" aspect besides the posters, dont expect to see any 45s or turntables... nice hostel but would NOT recommend for people looking for fun, drinking, meeting other travellers, especially young ones. we were the only under 30s, maybe even under 40s and it was slightly awkward drinking and socialising in the common room. seemed to be a cheap place for older people. staff were good, the buzzer concept is strange but works i guess.. close enough to the old town and big mall
