    Amazing place to stay. One of my favourites in Vietnam. Hong and her family are the kindest hosts, their cooking is amazing and they were so helpful with planning the rest of our trip. Very generous breakfast included and lovely meals in the evening for really good prices. This hostel is located outside of Sapa in a small village called Ta Van which meant there were incredible views of the valley and rice fields. Would 100% recommend staying here!

    Very Good

    It's located in the rice terraces so you can go hiking immediately after breakfast. Breakfast was free and really good! Beds have mosquito nets but no sockets or lamps. There are lockers next to the reception but someone has to open that room if you need your stuff. I wanted to cancel my last night because I had to go to a doctor but they said I can't cancel. So I had to pay although they were but fully booked and it was not high season. They could be more helpful there!

    Very Good

    I enjoyed my stay and did a trek myself on the owners advice as there wasn't anyone in the hostel when I arrived so couldn't join a group. I would advise to book a tour beforehand if you want to do one but I had a great day walking. Mosquitos nets were a bonus and you need them as there are lots! Hot showers too! The dorms are about a minutes walk uphill from the main property. Views are amazing from the main property.
