    Such a beautiful hostel. We had a room facing the river and it was absolutely amazing and clean! The staff was friendly and helpful setting up everything we wanted to do! A bit far from town center, but there are bikes and motor bikes to rent which wasn’t far at all.

    Peaceful location next to river. 6 bungalows, offer food and drinks and help you book transport and tours and gave advise to get around. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Free bicycles to use. On lunar new year and he invited us to have dinner with him and his friends in the garden, so we joined, he didn’t even charge us for the food or drinks. Also got driven to the town to get our bus at 4am. However the bus never came and Ha came back to pick us up and booked us other transport.

    Great homestay. The owners were incredibly helpful, picking us up from our night bus at 4am and allowing us to check in early. Free bicycles and use of kayaks meant we could get around everywhere when we weren't doing cave tours. Micky the dog was an excellent host too!

    LOVED it!! Beautiful location right on the river, very relaxing place to spend the evening after exploring caves all day. Staff were so friendly and helpful with booking tours and transportation. They even had a shower to use after we did a cave trip but had a few hours to kill before our night bus. Highly recommend!

    We had a really fantastic stay. Our bungalow was overlooking the river, has great air con and complimentary water. The staff were so fantastic and went above and beyond with their friendliness and service. It’s about a 30 min walk to the centre of town, but there are free bikes and lots of kids to high five on the way. Would definitely stay again.

    We had a great stay at carambola! Ha and the rest of the staff were so lovely and helped us organise everything from an overnight train to scooters in Hue. We had food poisoning upon arrival (was not fun) and the staff were very attentive and even brought us ginger tea. Ha even drove us into the town and back as we were not feeling up to cycling and even dropped us off to our bus at 4am and stayed to make sure we boarded ok. Lovely people great atmosphere and right on the water!

    Lovely place, beautiful views, cheap food and the family that owns it are extremely helpful and generous and will organise everything for you. We really appreciated the pick up from the bus stop too. Would have given it a 10 if the bicycles and scooters for rent were better quality. Make sure to swim in the river!

    Brilliant one night stay in the bungalows. Perhaps more suited for couples/friends than solo travellers as it can be quiet in the evening. Maybe the staff could organise family meals or things for guests to do in evening. But other than that could not fault the staff or the accommodation. The views are spectacular and the breakfast is very nice. Take adv of the free bicycles to ride into town - it's only 15 min and a lovely ride. Mickey the dog is very inquisitive, but so cute :)

    This is a lovely place to stay on the river. It is a very relaxed quiet atmosphere, and the staff keep the place incredibly clean. The bungalows are comfortable with good beds and air con. The location is a bit out of the way but they have bicycles you can use for free! The highlight was the staff they were so friendly and gave us a lift to our next hostel for free which was very kind. We also enjoyed swimming in the river.
