    The women here are always doing their best to be accommodating! The living room was a bit chilly, but the bedrooms were perfectly warm once you had the duvet over you. Breakfast was delicious, as were the free snacks at night when the lobby was filled with guests! The dogs were a nice little addition, but the puppy, Bông, could be whiny at 2 in the morning. I'm sure that'll stop as she gets older. Booking events from the hostel was quite easy, as well as the taxi back up to Sapa Village. 9.4

    Lan was a great hostess. She was very nice and was always willing to answer any questions. The location is nice and laid back, there is a nice terrace with some hammocks to hangout on. Since it's in a relatively rural location there aren't many restaurants around, however Lan has dinner options available and they are nice large portions. If you think money may be a concern I advise to get money out while in Sapa, you won't find any ATMs here.

    I had a great stay - the rooms are warm and the beds are really comfortable, the terrace is sociable even in winter with a fire, blankets, and the most incredible view. The breakfast is one of the best I’ve had with loads of fresh fruit, egg and pancakes, and their other food is cheap and tasty. The owners are lovely and welcoming and their niece was great and really helpful, with amaxing English and a hilarious sense of humour! Also the recommended waterfall hike was great.Definitely recommend.

    We walked from Sapa to Ta Van and stayed in a 4 bunk room but on our own. Clean room and linen. Large lockers for bags. Cool deck area with chairs and hammocks and nice view. Bathroom and toilet clean, good hot water. Did not have dinner there but menu looked good and included breakfast was amazing for the price. Friendly staff directed us on a self guided walk to waterfall the next day and phoned taxi for us back to Sapa. Overall a nice place to stay out of the way.

    Great location outside of Sapa for a quieter experience. We stayed for 3 nights and found it very relaxing. The owner was wonderful and had plenty of advice on treks for self guided adventures. Booked our bus to Ha Giang through hostel for a very reasonable price too. Only one shower and toilet to share between all guests, so would rate higher if more. Would stay again if in Sapa area.

    We expected a bit more from this place. The place was empty except for us(maybe because it was off season). The room was very damp but the beds were okay and clean. The floor in the room and in the whole house were not clean at all. The owner was not there, only two sweet girls who run the place, one of them spoke English very well, and ate dinner with us one night, which was so nice. But everything else was worn down, and I think there are better hostels in the area to stay at.
