My Story:
I am Hien, I am a Ha Long citizen. I used to be a fishman to catch oyster and crab at Ha Long bay, I used to be a hotel employee in Ha Long city as well. When i worked for the hotels, I love to talk with tourists. There was a question I often to ask them 'what is the reason make you to come here Ha Long to visit?'. 100% peoples answer was 'Ha Long bay'. View House Rules

    We had an absolutely lovely stay at Halo Bay Homestay, ended up staying for an extra night because it was brilliant. Great central location, really nice room with great AC and heater unit. Also felt very secure and covid-safe. Hien was a wonderful host and went above and beyond to help us and organise things for us! Really good value for money and they offer breakfast too- could not recommend more! Thank you!

    The Halo Bay homestay is a lovely place where to stay and enjoy the city. The family is extremely welcoming and friendly. Absolutely loved the food. They’ll help you to organise and book for you everything, the boat trip in Ha Long bay is a MUST! Recommended to everyone!

    Lovely people and great homestay. Family is friendly and does everything they can to serve you. The tour of ha Long bay they offered was good and cheap relative to others. They hosted a family dinner while I was there and the food was AMAZING, best I've had in Vietnam. Facilities were clean and comfy. 10 / 10 I would stay here again!

    Absolutely wonderful stay here, and all of the family are so inviting and welcoming, which is easily the best quality of here. On our first night we were invited to a family dinner party with traditional dishes with the extended family, complete with homemade wine, party food and guitar. I can really recommend the boat trip here to see halong bay, and with the trip, you’re given a free walking tour. My favourite home stay so far, would definitely recommend!

    We got to Ha long not knowing what we wanted to do and Hien helped us book a cruise, offered us a cheap taxi service and booked our buses to the next place. We were only supposed to stay one night and ended up staying two. It is not a party hostel but instead we spent a great time with Hien and her husband. She is very good at music and she played us Vietnamese songs. I could not recommend this place any more! It was delightful.

    A very welcoming place. The owner invited all guests to dine with her and her friends as part of New Year which brought all guests together. The host is very passionate and knowledgeable of the area and gave a tour also with lots of helpful advice on travel ideas. 10/10 for making us feel at home.

    The hosts were so helpful for my entire stay! Helping me arrange my trip, organise transport and because Ha Long doesn’t have Grab they even drove me to the Ferry port after I checked out! Such friendly and nice people! The home stay itself was clean and there were a few people to meet there, breakfast was included too!
