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

    Our whole time at life's a beach was heaven! Great atmosphere, quirky and fun staff. And the beach was beautiful! Felt so happy and free there with no wifi. Just the beautiful sea and great company! Would highly recommend anyone to go there

    Could stay at this hostel forever. Wherever you are in the hostel you can hear the sound of waves. I was never bored, there's always a hammock to relax on or a board game to play. Food and drink is very reasonably priced. At night there's a party atmosphere but not too forced. All around would highly recommend to stay here!

    Great hostel! Right on the beach so had a very relaxing vibe if you want to relax, but also had a party vibe at night to meet people. I don't usually like party hostels, and I really enjoyed myself here. It's quite far from the city, which is fine if you're okay with hanging out by the beach all day. So nice to have the A/C in the private rooms!

    Chill hostel with an amazing location with its own private beach. Good getaway for a couple nights. Unfortunately very little security and I think one of the cleaning staff may have taken my earphones. Be sure to lock everything up since anyone can go in the rooms.

    This place was great for getting away from everything and soaking up the sun on the beach. Very minimal place, nice to escape the hustle and bustle of northern and southern cities. No WiFi and bed bugs though, which would make me not return. Great staff! Fritz was awesome.

    The hostel is loaded with bed bugs. Myself and 2 other travelers got them. I understand that hostels get bed bugs, they can’t help it. But this hostel takes no preventative measures. They don’t even have mattress covers on the mattresses. It is simply and old mattress with a top sheet. If a hostel doesn’t have a mattress cover, they are asking for bed bugs. there is no way for them to get rid of them once they enter the mattress. It’s a shame since the location is great and the staff is lovely.
