Property Description

Our goal is to offer a relaxing, chilled out and comfortable home from which you can explore Phong Nha.

Sister hostel of Easy Tiger Phong Nha. While staying at Shambalaa Hostel you can use all of the facilities at Easy Tiger including their swimming pool

We offer dorm beds (no private rooms) with brand new comfy mattresses and bedding topped with fluffy, snuggly blankets. Our hostel is wonderfully clean, and our Angkor Wat / Indochine inspired bathrooms and powerful hot showers will make you sing with joy!

We employ good English speaking, welcoming staff who can give you lots of advice and talk you through our large range of tours. At Shambalaa Hostel, we want you to have an epic time but we also want you to feel at home because we know how traveling makes you crave the comforts of home. So, we offer free tea & coffee all day for our guests (tea is the cure for everything!), and free water refills.

We have a large lounge area downstairs with lots of pillows, so you can take a nap, chill out and write your journals, for those quiet times you might need amongst all the adventure and fun!

PLEASE NOTE - WE CAN ONLY CHECK IN GUESTS FROM 12:00 (NOON) TO 23:00. We don't offer early morning check-in's. Also please do not book for the previous day as we won't wake up sleeping guests to show new arrivals into the dorm. View House Rules

    One of the best hostels in Vietnam. Arrived at 4am and were given a place to sleep before check in. Stu was amazing in helping us settle in and telling us about the history of the area and things to do. The hostel is not a party hostel but s very social hostel and has a perfect balance. Met some amazing people here and the nearby late bar is only 2 minutes away. Can't recommend this place enough

    We had an excellent stay at Easy Tiger! A great atmosphere and we particularly enjoyed the free bicycle hire, free water refills, lovely pool and a super helpful daily information talk! The talk gave us some great itinerary ideas. No free breakfast but an extensive menu with cheap options and the added bonus of having it whenever you like. We arrived on a 4am bus and were happy to find lots of places for a nap as well as free water, toilets and showers that we could use.

    Good hostel, lots of space to hang out with a pool, ping pong tables, pool tables, hammocks! A social vibe with lots of travellers around, Plus they do an info session at 9am every morning. Food from the hostel is quite expensive though and the bathrooms really smelt terrible. Other than that, great!

    Dead sociable hostel with great bar and seating areas, however, let down by poor security- especially considering doors don’t have locks! (reception completely closes at 23:00 and my friend said the security guard barely noticed her walk in that night) Recommend staying here for one or two nights just to see Phong Nha and visit the caves or to use their free bike rental to go to the duck stop (a lot of fun!) but apart from that you really are in the middle of nowhere and places close early!
