    Catba Pod Hostel was truly one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. The beds/pods are very clean & so big you could fit two people per pod. The staff were truly the gem of the place-very kind and helpful with everything you could possibly need. They are also very accommodating and helped us reschedule our transportation when we decided to explore more of the island the morning we were supposed to leave. They also provide endless recommendations on things to do & provide a discount of 10%!

    Great stay at the pod hostel. The beds are bigger than other pod hostels- feels like you have your own room! Hot water and a great free breakfast. We also booked a day cruise through them which was super fun! Would recommend!

    Så fornøyd med servicen her! Jeg kom til hostellet 0745 og fikk sjekke inn med en gang. Da jeg sa jeg var interessert i å dra på båttur samme dag, fikk jeg masse hjelp av jenta i resepsjonen. Båtturen var 08:30, så jeg hadde ganske dårlig tid. Mens jeg sjekket inn, skiftet og gjorde meg klar, ordnet hun frokost til meg fra restauranten ved siden av sånn at jeg kunne spise på veien

    Great very central location. Getting there from Hai Phong was difficult and I wish there was more information about it on the site, but once you are there it is a lovely hostel with a great deal of privacy and excellent tours that you can book from the concierge.

    Place is a little expensive for what you get. Rooms are extremely hot even with the A/C on, would recommend getting a pod near the ground. The signature full day tour to Lan Ha Bay was amazing, you meet lots of people and was a highlight of our trip. You also get 10 percent discounts on trips and restaurants nearby. Cons: didn’t change toilet paper on time, only one shower and bathroom per pod section (room), which were in the same bathroom. Room was also not cleaned for the days we were there.

    Unfortunately (maybe because of the time of year) the room was usually damp, unless you had the cooperation of your roomates to leave the windows closed and dehumidifier on. Although the capsule beds are good and spacious (6-person room), the rest of the room is pretty small, if more than one person is standing up doing stuff it's a little cramped. The rooftop bar is great with very friendly staff, but we didn't find the desk staff quite as friendly. Not bad, but I wouldn't rush back!
