Property Description

Welcome to Life’s a Beach Backpackers - Quy Nhon’s original backpackers! This is Quy Nhon’s most sociable hostel where our team work hard to make sure you have a good time and make new friends. The beer and cocktails are cheap and we attract the friendliest people from all over the world. Most people book for one night then end up staying for the week! The days are super chilled – relaxing in a hammock whilst reading a book, sunbathing or swimming on our secluded beach or joining a tour around the local area.
But it’s at night when the fun happens. Everyone gathers in the bar to play games, have fun and enjoy themselves. We always have something to celebrate and we know how to throw a party!

Now for the practical information . . .

* Accommodation is basic – you’ll probably be staying in a bamboo hut on the hill side overlooking the stunning beach.
* The beds are comfortable with their own power point, lamp and mosquito net.
* The toilets and showers are not en suite but they are close by.
* We have no WiFi – this means you have to make new friends and once you get over it and start talking to people you won’t need Tinder anyway!
*We do not have the facility to accept credit card payments - remember to bring enough cash and your essentials with you – it’s 15KM to the city, but we have a small shop with everything you need - no embarrassing late night runs to the pharmacy!
* As we are in a remote location, there may be power cuts and water shortages from time to time. We do our best to ensure that the impact to guests is limited but your patience, understanding and help is appreciated during these times.
* Free secure parking is available for motorbikes.
* Check out time is 12:00 noon, check in time is from 2pm
* Reception is not 24 hours – it is open from 7am. You can arrive anytime but facilities may be limited. If arriving between 23:00 - 07:00 please let us know in advance so that we can make preparations for you.
* We only accept bookings from adult groups and individuals.
* Outside food or drink may not be consumed on the premises.
* You must provide a passport with a valid visa to stay – local police dictate that we must retain this during your stay. View House Rules

    We loved our stay at this hostel! During the day you can enjoy their beautiful private beach and during the night they know how to host a good party. I would definitely go back again. The staff was so nice and welcoming, they make us feel part of their family!

    Great place to chill out during the day and party in the evenings. The location is a bit out of the city and right on the beach, situated in a way where it's almost like the hostel has the beach to itself. The size and location, along with the drinking activities in the evening mean that you get to know everyone staying at the hostel and have a real community feel. Great owner, great staff!

    This hostel was amazing. It was recommended to us through a friend, and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere was fun, the staff were welcoming and would get you involved. Games every night. It has its own private beach so you dont need to leave if you dont want to. The ONLY downside is the AC, Unfortunately its just fans and it gets VERY hot the huts. The town is a bit of a trek 20mins in a car which is expensive. Get your cash out beforehand as they dont take card and the ATM is in town.

    This hostel is in a good spot on the water. It has a great bar with friendly staff & good food and comfy beds. This is primarily a party styled hostel at night. Tang who works in the bar is a really nice guy & was always ready to help me as well as Hue who also works there. It’s about a 10-15 minute bike ride into the city, but the ride is really beautiful, overlooking the ocean and cliffs. Thanks again for the stay guys, had a blast. Adam

    A very unique experience in a fantastic place with great people and an enchantingly wild atmosphere. We would have stayed one additional night, however the hostel was already fully booked. Definitely recommended both for solo and group travelers, especially if you wanna have a very authentic experience in Vietnam's nature.

    Just be warned that there are bed bugs, after the first night resulted in around 40 bites we had our sheets replaced... This didn't help. You are getting what you are paying for in that respect.

    Nice place but what beach? The place we stayed at had no beach, only rocks which was quite disappointing. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The food is pretty bad and the smell of fried food stays all day in the toilets and showers.

    Easy to find the hostel, right at the nice beach, feel more content if the staff is more friendly, when she brought us food, we expected a smile from her face but we received nothing, even no words. The food quite expensive with not good quality. Stayed in private room without towels. And we lost our dried fruits when the room was clock, that is so weird. The hostel is nice in general and good atmosphere but we don't feel like to come back .
