    It would have been nice if there was a jacuzzi or deck chairs on the roof terrace as that was missing. Staff are friendly however I found it odd that male reps were entering female dorms at random times of the day. One girl said that they walked in on her getting changed... not appropriate considering there are female reps. All in all my stay was pleasant.

    If you want a party hostel in the best location, this is the one to stay at. Super great bar staff and fun atmosphere. Had a great relationship with the aircon in my room, it’s legend. Even though it is a party hostel if you do want to be boring and have an early night the staff kicks everyone out for a awesome bar crawl around midnight so you oldies can get some shut eye. Also fifth floor chill area, super awesome.

    Absolutely massive hostel! The bar crawls were fun (even if there was only really one bar) very social atmosphere and the party got very loud after about 9/10ish which is great for all the party lovers! Rooms were also really social and the location was right near loads of bars and shops! Would definitely say that the ages are generally a lot younger than in a lot of other places around generally 18 to 22.

    Love this hostel and would stay again. Great atmosphere for meeting people and partying. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Trang B on the tourist desk was amazing, super friendly and helpful in sorting out all our travels. Can’t thank her enough.

    My rating is based off my friends stay here. I was actually unable to stay due to communication difficulties. I needed to change something about my booking but after three days of emailing and not receiving a response I had to bail and make other arrangements. I would like to say though I spent time here with a friend and it was a lot of fun! Also when I finally did get hold of someone she was super lovely and helpful and even managed to waiver the cancellation fee which I really appreciated!

    Also a great Vietnam Backpackers hostel. Just a little more crowded and dirty than the ones in Hoi An or Ho Chi Minh, but nowhere enough to complain. The staff was helpful, the location and food was excellent, and they had a great atmosphere and group of people in the lobby every night ready to meet, mingle, and party. Would definitely stay again.

    Standard party hostel, the vibe can be a bit forced fun. Good tours on offer Mai Châu was great! Our biggest issue was booked transport for the rest of our trip, we were told conflicting info serval times which made it very confusing. Furthermore we checked our tickets with the staff and they said it was fine, but when we check at the actual bus stop they had to change, luckily we checked as we wouldn’t have been able to get the right bus! Sometime the staff don’t seem to know what’s happening

    Great hostel for meeting people and drinking. It’s pretty packed in though so not the choice if you want something more relaxed. For going out though it’s on point.
