    Nice enough hostel- stayed in a twin room (both beds were small doubles). Did the one day boat trip to the islands which was really good and easy to book from the hotel reception. Staff were really helpful and friendly, food was good and cheap (we bought breakfast there one morning). Beach was only a short walk away and a very quiet beach too. Everything you needed right on the door step.

    A really nice, simple hotel. Food in the restaurant has tasty food, good portions and id cheap, the trips on offer have good prices as well (I took the 1 day Lan Ha/Halong bay and it was nice), plus the staff is very nice. It's no Hilton standard, but for this price it's a really good deal :)

    Lovely family, amazing value, perfect location! Dorm is light, big, airy, up several flights of stairs (I needed the exercise!). Can book onward transport at competitive price, dorm WiFi good, unsure AC worked but each bed had own fan. Only improvements = couldn’t get the shower hot! I’m sure it works but maybe written instructions?! I should have asked.... Also if I remember rightly lockers weren’t big enough for packs, but plenty for valuables. Common room’d be great! Fab stay, thanks!

    Great stay here, highly recommend. This family is fantastic! They take care of their guests so well and the place was so great we kept extending our stay:) rooms were clean and spacious, location was perfect, right across from the water and many lovely restaurants nearby. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and care for all our needs. The owner even retrieved for us our passports we had left behind and brought them to our bus which was about to leave!! He saved the day:)

    Has the potential to be a great place with big rooms and in the middle of Cat Ba town, but the rooms are quite dirty and old and the whole place has a weird atmosphere. The tour of Lan Ha and Ha Long bay booked with the hostel is brill and great value for money. Staff tried to be helpful but we paid for air con and they kept switching it off, they wouldn’t let us keep our bags anywhere when we were waiting for our bus and some of the people who work there played loud music late at night.

    You get what you pay for, at $2 a night we couldn’t really turn it down. Good location. Good views from the windows.

    The cheap hotel room it is not specified you must pay and extra $6 for AC which is frustrating. Room is ok for what you pay though and the woman that works here is very nice however the man is an absolute w*nker. After buying the AC he walked into the room (nosing around all of our stuff) to turn it on and tell us we can’t leave it on if we aren’t there. I’m paying $6 a day I’ll have it on when I want. One night we went out and when we got back he had let himself in our room and turned it off.
