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

    Our host was VERY flexible, helpful and forthcoming, the place is nice and cosy and has a degree of pleasant familiarity. She gave us very good recommendations regarding food and activities in Ha Long. It was a complete privilege staying there.

    Lovely family! Hien and her husband were wonderful hosts. The hostel was very clean and the breakfasts were lovely. Hien helped me with my bookings, including a great massage with her friend and a bus to Hanoi. Bicycles are included, and Hien helped me with an itinerary for solo biking that day. It’s not a very touristy area, which I really enjoyed, just seeing the local way of life and enjoying a nice meal with Hien and her family!

    Stayed here as a solo traveller and the host was so sweet! She organised everything, the boat tour, my night bus to Sapa & all my washing. Even the taxi’s to and from she wanted to make sure we didn’t get charged too much so ordered them through a friend. It was so warm and welcoming being at the homestay with her and her husband! Super comfy beds, simple but great breakfast & generally a great vibe. Would recommend staying here !

    The hosts at Halo Bay Homestay are exceptionally kind and helpful. They invited us to join them for a family dinner of home cooked Vietnamese food which was delicious and the breakfast was also very tasty. The room was very comfortable and clean with a safe to lock valuables and good A/C. The hosts were very responsive and helped us book a cruise and a bus back to Hanoi. Definitely stay here!

    Lovely day for 2 nights! Hosts keen to tell you about the history of Halong bay and less touristy points of interest in the bay. They are very helpful with booking buses and cruises to other destinations. Beds and towels clean and comfy. Would stay here again 😊

    Great hostel, clean and everything works! Staff are friendly & can arrange buses/tours for you! Curtains are a little thin meaning the rooms are bright in the mornings - other than that can’t fault it

    Loved this hostel. Was decorated so nicely and the host was so welcoming and friendly. Ideal if you’re looking for somewhere to stay in the Halong bay area although there isn’t much going on in the surrounding area (tricky to find somewhere to eat). Would highly recommend.
