    Easily one of the best hostel environments I’ve ever had the pleasure of staying in. The food is fantastic, the hammocks are amazing, and the music they play is an enormous upgrade from the bad pop/EDM that plagues so many backpacker spots. They hooked me up with an amazing Jungle Boss tour as well. This is THE place to stay while visiting Phong Nha.

    I was recommended easy tiger by a few people I met on my trip. I get it now. The hostel facilities are lovely and open- it’s not hard to be social here. The menu is incredible. As awful as it is there’s only so many times p/w I can eat fried noodles and pho before I crave a comfort meal and ET have all of them. Ideal location, I extended a night to get everything seen and chill out. Thank you :)

    Banging value, banging live music man, good happy hours and lovely vibes all round. One word of advice: do not go to Andy's night club, he refused to let me leave until I became the party

    Really cool hostel! The staff were so helpful and friendly, the pool area is great for a lounge, and the rooms get aired out during the day so they aren’t so stuffy. Upon seeing the menu at the cafe, my eyes widen, my stomach growled, and my brain thought that I didn’t have enough time to eat all the food! Someone has put a lot of thought into this hostel, from the extra wall plugs to the colored towels, and it’s awesome! Oh plus it’s right where the bus drops you off in town.

    This hostel was awesome and so massive! The room itself was alright. The bunk bed was a little high but it was fine. It's comfy! The bathroom was huge. It had a very small smell but it was okay! They open all the doors during the day to ventilate but give you a massive locker for your all yor stuff. Their food is a little pricey but soo good!! The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. I loved it here!!! And such a great place to meet people. Would stay again!

    Had a very good time at Easy tiger. Loved the staff, so helpful with organizing tours and tips on what to do and not around the area. Food was great, really try their nachos sooo good! Rooms was clean and bed were good. Best part is the pool, mid April is baking and the pool was a nice break to cool off after a day off caves and amazing nature.

    Amazing place food is really good. It’s a huge hostel with many places to chill and relax. If you arrive really early in the morning there are a lot of places to sleep while waiting to check in. Only issue I had was at 8am in the morning a staff member came into our room yelling “hello who does the tour” When the girl who booked it had already left so we were all rudely woken up. Other then that really good place.
