    We really enjoyed our stay here. Perfect for quiet down time away from the crowds and great value for money. My only fault with it is that there is no internet access on the island. I would have appreciated being told beforehand so that I could have made sure I had enough data on my phone (obviously I can live without internet for a few days :D but I did miss out on some important work stuff).

    I went out to the island for one night to relax, it was perfect for this. A little bit far from cat ba but they offer a free boat which is helpful. I also got picked up earlier than the usual 1pm puck up which was great as I got to enjoy the island for a day. Was nice being away from the hustle and bustle. Stayed in the dorm room, was quiet when I was there but relaxing. No lockers or curtains but beds were comfy

    On a complete seperate small island off the coast of cat ba town. The island it self isn’t very developed and there’s nothing much to do other than 1 walking trail. It’s good to chill out and enjoy some drinks, just be careful, they work on a tab system and at the end of my stay there were a few more drinks on my bill than what I had ordered and they put up a lengthy and obnoxious fight for me to pay for it. Other than that it is a comfortable hostel and the staff are friendly - just be aware

    where to begin? Beautiful island but so much work to be done. The staff don't seem to know what they are doing. On hostelworld it said 1 free BBQ dinner & breeky which was un available. no wifi as advertised. We brought this up with the staff that got annoyed at us for booking through hostelworld? Half the menu was missing and the food took over 2 hours to come. No lockers, and all bungalows were unlocked so not very secure. Don't bother staying here unless booked through tour!

    Everything sounds nice on paper and the location and premises has great potential but it was ruined for me by the incessant noise of the large generator powering the islands electricity and loud pop music from a pretty empty bar. The basics are there for a place to sleep and wash etc but there seems to be little thought about making the place truly comfortable and i got a sense that the private island concept is just a way to lure tourists in as part of a tour and not really as a proper hostel.

    Didn't enjoy this stay. Food was over hyped and extremely over priced. We were sold the "BBQ" for 4 people.. We had very small portion, cold prawns and I don't think any of the food had been done on the BBQ. The meal was deceptively bulked out with fries and rice. Very disappointed. There were locals and they had a completely different meal and looked like they had a lot more food and better quality. Tried to sell us a very expensive tour of Ha Long Bay which we heard was awful value for $.
