    Easy Tiger is great. Daily Info sessions help give you a run down of everything to do and the staff makes booking very easy. Nice facilities and comfortable beds, would highly recommend visiting Phong Nha & Easy Tiger

    Extremely well run hostel. Everything is like clockwork. Free water refills saves on plastic pollution. Regular bar events to get the vibe pumping. Dinner was a bit hit and miss so go out and support the locals. Could do with a small washing line.

    Great hostel with a party, lively vibe. The owner gives an information talk about the caves at 9am and it was really useful for us to help plan our time there. All the staff were helpful and the hostel food was really good but it isn’t Vietnamese cuisine. The WiFi didn’t quite reach the rooms and the beds were a bit shaky. Would love to stay here again and would recommend it to anyone!

    easily the best place to stay in Phong Nha! There’s a great atmosphere and it’s so easy to meet other people, also the party scene is pretty chilled so you if you don’t want to party you can still enjoy a few drinks and go to bed when everyone goes out. Great food and drink menu and the staff are really helpful and give a great talk in the morning about all of the things to do in Phong Nha.

    Best hostel in Phong Nha! You can meet a lot of fellow travelers with its huge common area, and the staff does a great job of planning group trips, and even helping you plan your own trip (if you ask). There’s a wide range on the menu to choose from, a mix of local and western food. Live music most nights too! A good atmosphere for the type of outdoorsy location that it’s in. Make sure to visit Phong Nha + Paradise cave!

    Great pool tables and atmosphere, but lack of room keys and grim bathroom let it down slightly

    The social space is incredible! However the air con in the room wasn’t great, the shower wasn’t very good. The door for the bathroom kept getting stuck. The staff weren’t overly impressive. Breakfast is not included which it had been in every other hostel we’d stayed in. Anyone can walk into the hostel and there are no locks on the doors but there are lockers inside the room. It had been recommended to us and would I would recommend it again.

    Very Good

    Okay hostel. Staff friendly enough. I was impressed with the free drinking water and the mosquito net was a nice touch. I really don’t understand why they take your passport from you? No other hostel I have stayed in has done this. They normally scan it or take a photocopy. I was a bit concerned to see that the passports of all guests were just in a box on the desk and not in a safe. The hostel is taking a big risk doing this.
