Property Description

At Life's a Beach we welcome people from all over the world with a chilled out attitude and a lust for life! Our guests range from Couples in love discovering the world together, families with kids on their first expedition, Backpackers on a gap year to silver travellers (trust me – they have some great stories to tell and are often the last to go to bed!)
Our style is varied, laid back and rustic – to reflect the needs of our guests. All of our rooms have cooling fans – it’s really all you need at the beach – but we do also have air conditioning in some rooms. Free WiFi, bed linen, fluffy towels, hot showers and unlimited drinking water come as standard for everyone.
Our beach front café and bar sells a variety of affordable meals and snacks throughout the day as well as an optional communal dinner in the evening prepared by local Vietnamese ladies. This is a great opportunity to meet other travellers and share stories and tips for where to go to next. Our beer is served cold and we have a number of happy hour promotions throughout the day to make sure that your budget isn’t hit too hard.

After dinner depends on you - maybe a spontaneous tune on the guitar round the bonfire, perhaps a movie on the big screen or just the opportunity to make new friends for life while you chat beneath the stars with the noise of the ocean in the background.
During your stay, just chill out on the beach, take a trip out to sea with a local fisherman or trek to the nearby waterfall. One thing you are guaranteed is that you will never forget the charming fishing village of Bai Xep and the wonderful people that live here. View House Rules

    Had a brilliant time here, all staff went above and beyond and were very helpful, management and the owner. The dorms don't have air conditioning but you don't need it, your right at the beachfront, you all have your own fan and it's very cool at night. I stayed longer than expected. The food was delicious and I felt very welcome here. I actually didn't venture out of the hostel at all except out for a swim on the beach, I was more than happy to chill out here. Would highly recommend ! :)

    Fantastic hostel sitting on paradise away from the hustle and bustle. Real family feel to the place. Great for a solo traveler as it’s very easy to meet people and have a chat over a beer. Highly recommend.

    Great place to chill. Not too busy but they have the backpackers version of the hostel down the road for that. Beach and hostel were awesome. Clean. Staff aesome and great family meals. Very quiet fishing village. But great for a quiet day or two away from it all.

    This is the most chilled place you'll ever stay. People here have come for one night and ended up staying many more. Nice breakfasts each morning, and in the evening the locals run a fish market on the beach where you can choose from live fish, lobsters and oysters (reccomend the latter) where they'll cook it and bring it to you at your table on the beach. Brittany made things super fun with her nightly games and snorkelling tours, really brings the people together.

    What a gem of a place in a perfect location. Bai Xep is amazing and this place has 100% the right beach shack, chilled vibes I was after. The food and drinks are kindexpensive, except beer and coffee which is reasonable, and the food is fine but not amazing especially considering the price. But it’s totally worth paying a bit more for the location. The owner is around a lot and joined a family style dinner. The staff are friendly and helpful, sorted my onwards bus no problem!

    Life's a Beach is an amazing little hostel right in front of Bai Xep beach. I had the best and chillest time here relaxing for a few days. Highly recommend. Food prices are high but the hostel next door has slightly less pricey menu choices and there are plenty of very affordable seafood restaurants in the little village.

    Life is a Beach is the perfect place for a chill out, soaking up the local fisher village vibe and enjoying that special and beautiful beach. The dorms are basic but a good value for money. The food there is quite expensive for the tase but the village offers great and cheap seafood options. The drinks are really good and around happy hour have a reasonable price! Only thing a bit disappointing was the construction work and that not even a drink was offered to console the ongoing noise.

    This place is ok but I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit. Best thing is that it is located in a little fishing village which was pretty cool but food is overpriced in the hostel so we never ate here. Food in village is ok. Went to Summer restaurant opposite the school which was not too bad. Hostel suited for people wanting to party.
