    The atmosphere was great as we were constantly meeting new friendly people from around the world. They offer a nice free breakfast and tons of guidance on what to do in the city and what to do in other parts of Vietnam. For anyone who wants a relaxed atmosphere, this isn’t the place as it is quite loud. We also found people were quite messy in the rooms with leaving their belongs out everywhere. However, the rest of facility was kept clean. Overall VBH was a great and convenient place to stay.

    The staff were great, so helpful. They made me love me stay there. I met a ton of cool people there. Location is ideal, at most a 20 minute walk from everything. The only thing that could be better is the prices at the bar. No one stays inside when you can get 5,000VND beers outside. Also the airport pickup isn’t worth it, a grab car is 2/3 the price for the same service.

    Okay hostel, very much for partying. If that’s your thing, then you’ll be happy here. I felt that the staff at the travel desk were more interested on selling you their tours rather than giving you advice on what to do during your time in Vietnam.

    Aircon was out in our dorm when we arrived we asked for a different room the staff acted like it was not there problem. The lockers were worn out and barely would lock. The wrist bands to pay were convent. Location was good if you want to party.
