    Too many positive things to say about this place, but the hospitality really sets this place apart from the rest. The breakfasts alone are worth the stay but other meals were consistently delicious as well. She gave us hand drawn maps so we could go trekking without a guide. Booked taxis and busses for us to our next location. Gave us samples of their homemade rice wine. Taught us about the locals and always had a cheerful attitude with a smile. Really enjoyed our stay here.

    Wow. Probably the perfect homestay. Super caring, excellent breakfast with fresh crepes and honey, great views. Also super easy to arrange for day drip hikes, or busses to any other major cities.

    we enjoyed our stay here. Our private double room had a view of the valley. Spent a lot of time on the decking facing the lovely view. Came here for peace, quiet and fresh air. It was lovely.

    A nice place to recharge the batteries for a few days. Didn't do any trekking but the chilled atmosphere here is great to relax. The girls were all friendly, and always on hand if you want food. The key system on the dorms is strange though, as we were locked out a couple of times.

    We absolutely loved our stay here! We arrived very late at night and the owner offered to make us some food because we had been on such a long journey. She made us feel so welcome and at home. The breakfast is amazing and it was truely a wonderful experience staying here!

    This place is perfect if you're looking to stay near the rice fields and the small village in Sapa. I would highly recommend arrive during the day and not night time. The road are very bad and it's quite pricey to take a taxi from the town of Sapa all the way out there. But other than the host is friendly and speaks good English. The staff are friendly too, although their English is very limited. They make awesome food if you decide to eat lunch or dinner at the homestay.

    Had a lovely stay at this homestay, great breakfast included in the price and the other food available was also great. Lovely views and location, staff were amazing and helpful. Just quite far out from Sapa and the wifi wasn’t the best.
