    Had the most amazing stay here, booked an extra night because it was the first hostel we’d stayed at that we’d genuinely loved. The lady who runs it is so friendly (as is her husband who gave us ample complimentary rice wine); she gave us recommendations for where to go in tavan and also booked out travel to other places in Vietnam. Did not have a single complaint! The free breakfast is amazing :)

    This was one of my favourite places i stayed in vietnam. Far away from the city centre in real nature, 10 walk to a viewpoint. They have the best breakfast here!!!. I loved their lounge area with hammocks and plenty of tables to socialize. The view from the lounge is absolutely breathtaking. The only down side is because its run by a local family, they stop serving food around 7, but there are restaurants near by! Otherwise I will definitely come back to stay here!

    Amazing hostel, located just outside of the main part of sapa - amazing area so worth the 40 min taxi. The hosts were very accommodating and give amazing free breakfast everyday. Lovely place to chill out and enjoy the view as well as do one of the different hiking options to get an even more incredible view of the fields. Overall definitely worth your money, provides all facilities necessary and would definitely stay again!

    Really nice, cosy homestay! Very clean and comfortable, met really nice people and enjoyed some trekking (no guide, host was really nice and showed us everything). It would have been nice to have a window that opened as it was quite stuffy at times, but overall we had a wonderful time!

    We arrived at 9pm to find the place deserted, luckily another traveller told us there were two parts to the hostel so we ventured up the road in the dark and did find a staff member. They quickly sorted us out room and made us welcome. Despite a unsure arrival feeling alone and lost, the rest of the stay was worth it. Incredible views from the hostel and the staff very informative about the hikes. Even provided us with free Wellington boots. Thank you

    Out of the city centre so be sure to have cash on you before heading out otherwise you'll be spending quite a bit to travel between. Otherwise it was a great location, quiet and scenic. Plenty of hiking which you can either hire a guide for or just do it yourself. Staff were lovely and the atmosphere was great.

    Very basic homestay but ok for the price you pay. The fan in the room didn’t always work and the bathroom flooded every time we showered. Owner seemed annoyed when we didn’t book the $15 trek through her as we thought it was quite overpriced and wasn’t very forthcoming about information regarding an embroidery class we could do separately. Delicious breakfast though and the views from the terrace are very nice.

    We were shocked to see this was the highest rated hostel in Sa pa. The host speaks good English and will help if you ask... when she’s around. She was rarely there and the workers there didn’t speak much English so it was hard to ask anything from them. Rooms only have 1 key, The bathroom didn’t have toilet paper or AC, and lots of insects since the windows are open. The breakfast was the best part! The lounge area has a beautiful view and hammocs, location is ok its not too far from things.
