    Lovely quiet little hostel in a nice part of town. The staff are great and despite being quiet theres a good social area to meet people. I would highly recommend if you're not looking for a party!

    We absolutely LOVED our stay at backpackers. The original location was quiet enough to get a good nights sleep but within 15 minutes walk to the downtown location to party. Staff were super helpful and friendly. They do a stand up job with keeping the rooms and bathrooms clean. Comfortable beds and pillows. Great travel advice and helped us book the next leg of our Vietnam trip (thanks Declan!). Chill laid back feel with great people. We were sad to leave! Thanks for an awesome stay!

    This hostel is really great, even if you're not that much of a party type. The toilets and showers are constantly being cleaned, the location is really convenient. They have free walking tours which I found was an easy way to meet other travelers, especially if you're a solo traveler. One thing I found was that the information given by different staff members was not consistent. That was a bit weird. But overall, awesome place.

    Didn’t actually stay at this one, staff at the central location changed my reservation for me when I saw my friends were staying at the central one. So they get a positive review for being so accommodating! The chain hostel is a really good one and a must for first time backpackers or newcomers to Vietnam. Really helpful staff, guaranteed entertainment, good facilities, good location and all this applies for both hostel locations! Dropped in a few times here- it’s good too just not as social!

    Staff super welcoming, there are a lot of activities you can join in with in their other hostel- is really recommend their free tour. The area is quiet enough in the evenings but has loads of stuff going on close by during the day.

    Unlike many of its other hostels, this one is not a party place. It's old fashioned in a pleasant way.

    The hostel is very clean, reception staff are great. The hostel is very secure but the security “guard” at night was rude and kept telling us to be quiet outside the hostel when we weren’t disturbing any guests other than the security guard. The original hostel location seems to be old news. The downtown location is where the party is at. The original is chill though, good if you want to escape the party hostels. You can always join the pub crawl from the downtown hostel if you want to party.
