They proviced us a lot of useful imformation about trips, the best things to do on the is land as Halong Bay one day tour, Trekking to catch up some view points of National Park. Our trip through Halong Bay was amazing, we had a great tour guide and we enjoyed a lot. A big thank to the tour guide who made us an amazing day.

    I had such an amazing time that I booked an extra night! The staff was always friendly and helpful, the rooms were nice and clean, and having Langur adventures right downstairs made booking everything I wanted to so easy and convenient. Also, they had refillable drinking water in the lobby, which I did not see in many places in SE Asia, and appreciated greatly so I didn't have to waste more plastic.

    I stayed 6 nights in this hostel and this is the best place I’ve stayed in a long time. The staffs is superb, they care about you and are more than happy to help with anything you may need. I also like the environmental friendly manner that they run the hostel. You can borrow a bottle and refill your water for free. Breakfast is simple but more than enough. Also got 10% discount on 2 days 1 night trip to Halong bay and Lanha bay which was absolutely stunning. Thank you to the Pod family!

    I loved my stay here! It’s right on the main road, so many restaurants and bars are walking distance. I love the pod style beds, it allows for more privacy. The room is accessible by key card and you get a locker in next to the bed as well as a bigger locker for your bag. The rooftop bar is great, stylishly decorated and they have delicious smoothies. Watching the sunset from here was beautiful. I highly recommend staying here.

    I really enjoyed my stay here! The pods for sleeping were much bigger than other pod hostels I’ve stayed in. The location was perfect and surrounded by anything you could need. The free breakfast and discounts around town were super nice! They had their own travel agency that was incredibly helpful with finding the right activities to participate in. The only issue I had, needing to check out right at 7 am when they open but no one showed up until around 7:15. Luckily I still caught my bus!

    Great little hostel on cat ba and literally opposite where the bus drops you off. We did the half day kayaking tour which wasn’t great but everything else they provided was great. The transport they sorted back to Hanoi was amazing and so cheap and all staff were really helpful.

    Not a bad hostel at all. Beds were comfy and the hostel was nice and clean. There is no restaurant though and they do have a bar on the rooftop which is really nice to watch the sunset from however, one evening I bought a beer for 20000VND and then an hour later I went to get another & was charged 25000VND. When I asked how can the price go up in just an hour they said they have put all the prices up. The prices are now high so I would recommend heading next door for buy 1 get 3 spirits free
