    Great location and very clean dorm with lock on door. This is definitely a party hostel so beware if you are not into that! Our room was still fairly quiet though (with earplugs). The staff are very enthusiastic about partying but not very helpful with local information; they are constantly trying to sell you the VBH packages which are very expensive. Good breakfast. Great free walking tour in the mornings!

    Very social hostel, great location. We did the Castaways Halong Bay tour and it was great. Awesome facilities, fun activities and met some awesome people. Would definitely recommend this tour if you like drinking/partying.

    Only stay here if you are ready for a Sunny Beach kind of experience. People dancing on tables, drunk all day and with very little covering up of bodies. If this is what you’re looking for, then this massively party hostel is perfect.

    hostel was well located and facilities were nice but that was it. Supposed to be a social hostel but the music was horribly loud at all times of the day, meaning that having a conversation with anyone required screeching. Hostel lobby was not a place to chat or chill, but becomes a nightclub at 7pm. Staff pressurise you into buying drinks and overpriced tours. Bar was dominated by drunk lads looking to get with people which made us feel uncomfortable. Only stay here if you want to get drunk.
