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

    Awesome place! Right on the beach you sleep with the sounds of the waves! Quaint & remote away from touristy area! Love it!

    Fantastic place. Any bad reviews are obviously not taking into account how cheap it is for such an amazing location. You will end up spending a bit more as there isn’t too much else around, but the evening meals are all delicious and well worth it (even a roast dinner!) and drinks weren’t expensive. Can always go to local places as well to save money. It also had a fantastic atmosphere with a quiz night or game on every night. Staff were all amazing, especially Dan and V! Book 3 nights minimum!

    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.

    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.

    Really low key chill beach hostel. Staff is fantastic. The food and drinks are great and affordable. Every evening the people in the village set up make-shift seafood restaurants on the beach.

    A really lovely stay, no option but to relax. Shame breakfast isn’t included but other than that our stay was perfect. Friendly staff and lovely quiet beach.

    Make sure you go to the correct hostel because we booked for this one and the taxi driver took us to the sister hostel with the same name, just 6km further out of the city. Probably best if you change the name so its not confusing to people who've never been there before
