    stayed there for 4 nights. easy and comfortable stay. it s not in the main tourist district of bui vien but not close enough to walk there, would recommend if you want a bit of quiet away from the tourist-filled areas.

    Made the booking and was told it was full. Minh moved me to Hotel Cao thang which was in an alley 1 min away. Overrall it was fairly fine but smelled heavily like smoke. Minh was great and the lobby area in Language exchange hostel 1 was pretty decent and quaint.

    So I booked for hostel 1 and the lady that worked there put me in the second hostel because they gave my room to someone else for the first night. Wasn’t fussed coz I checked in at like 1am. She said I could switch but I stayed at 2 because the room seemed nicer. Common area for number 2 didn’t exist so kicked it at number 1 and meet some pretty good folks. Location is pretty good. probably better hostels but if you want one with a good crowd that isn’t into parting but like a chat would recomme

    This hostel is not terrible but I did not find it very clean and the room and bathroom stank. Didn’t really like the overall atmosphere. It’s fine if you’re looking for something cheap for a few nights but it was not for me.

    Got moved to Language Hostel 2 when I got there which was a different vibe, not as big of a lobby or as many people hanging out, not as well lit. One employee said that I would be charged less for the inconvenience, since the room I booked in Language Hostel 1 was not available. There was a miscommunication because the owner didn’t honor that, and when I went in the room the bathroom was covered in water, there was no bedsheet or pillowcases, and the refrigerator was molded inside. I didn’t end up staying the night and we got a room at The Like Hostel instead which was a wonderful experience all around.

    We booked through Hostel world. The booking was accepted and when I arrived they told me that they did not have a room for me. This is of cours very unprofessional and should not happen. But the woman behind the counter was the real problem. Instead of apologizing for the inconvenience and searching for a solution together she acted very indifferent, not helpful at all. Communication was really difficult, the woman spoke deliberately very quitte and was very apathetic!

    We booked via hostel world for one night. However when we turned up, we were told they were full. Very poor. Would not recommend. They refused to give us the deposit back as well
