Property Description

The Banana Tree Hostel is functioning as a social hub in the Ninh Binh area we offer travellers, expats and locals great food, drinks, sceneries and memories.

Our garden overlooks the beautiful Tam Coc river where rowing boats pass from morning till night and the famous limestone mountains where the sun sets in the evening. Whether you prefer to sip a cocktail next to our swimming pool, quietly read a book in one of our hammocks, or plan your adventures around the area, we’ve got you covered.

All our dorms and private rooms have thick soft mattresses, en suite bathrooms, AC, Wifi and USB powerpoints. The bunk beds are spacious, offer you complete privacy and your own big locker. The private rooms have balconies overlooking the river and come with complimentary a la carte breakfast.

Hope to see you soon, and please reach out if there’s anything we can help you with!

**Things to note & policies**

- Super Early Check-ins: are not possible for the dorm rooms as we are often fully booked and do not want to disturb other guests. Most of the time we are able to check everyone in between 11 am and 1 pm. Early arrivals are more than welcome to come to the hostel and use one of the many comfy seats, sunbeds and hammocks to rest/nap or showers to freshen up :-)

- Group Bookings: if making a booking for a group of more than three we can almost always ensure you are in the same room. However, during busy season and especially when checking in late this sometimes is not possible due to the sheer fact that the Hostel is full and there are often multiple group bookings.

    One of the best hostels I stayed in during my trip through Vietnam. The staff were friendly and spoke great English. The private rooms are luxurious and boast a view over the river, the dorm rooms are private, clean and comfortable with a very good en-suite. The location could not be better placed in Tam Coc. The bar and pool area allow for great relaxing or partying! The food can be pricey, so I’d recommend eating out. Overall I cannot recommend this enough! It has everything.

    One of my favourite hostels!! Everything was so clean, the rooms were immaculate and the bathrooms were lovely!! The pool area is a great way to spend the day, everyone was friendly and staff were lovely. Would have extended longer just to enjoy the hostel if I can time!

    If I could give more stars I would! This hostel is the cleanest and nicest I’ve stayed in for the amount it costs and the staff is so extremely helpful! I was sick my first day and couldn’t check in so they helped make me comfortable in the reception area with ginger tea pillows and blankets. They were all so great! I highly recommend this hostel

    This is the best hostel we have ever stayed in. It’s beautiful, an amazing pool, could do with more sun lounges. The food is delicious, especially the loaded fries. The drinks are a little expensive. The vibe and atmosphere is great. Very friendly. Close to the main town. Staff are very helpful.

    Great hostel, so clean, friendly people, rooms are great and the food is amazing! Nice location near the river & the pool is a great size. No activities as such for backpackers laid on but this place doesn’t need that. Plenty of music/people around and bars are a very short walk! Staff very helpful when booking buses / bikes so worth asking at reception! Don’t miss the chance to stay here, I only stayed for a night but easily could have been longer!

    Not the friendliest staff, it’s a “party” hostel / resort. Good vibe, but dorms are next to the garden and it’s noisy (not terrible) Beds are a little narrow, and air circulation / temperature wasn’t great. It’s a beautiful hostal/resort with the nicest facilities I have seen, specially for the price. Totally recommended.

    The hostel itself was very good, super clean and comfy beds. Staff was friendly and helpful. Only downside of it was the atmosphere, it’s not the best place to socialise, they don’t do any kind of games or ice breakers to bring travellers together. This place has huge potencial, but nevertheless still a very good hostel, that I would definitely recommend

    Very Good

    Got here with high expectations considering the price you pay with comparison to other hostels in the area and have to say I was disappointed..showers didn’t work , there was no water whatsoever and for two days straight had issues with the showers and plumbing in the toilets + then the WiFi stopped working for about 2 days. When we spoke of this to the manager we had to try really hard to get some sort of compensation with them settling on 50% off at brekkie ... spend your money somewhere else!

    Every interaction with reception was terrible. On check in they forgot to take key deposit and when we went back to pay they didn't record that we had done so, so when we were checking out they didn't want to give the money back. Laundry was lost and took over 24 hours to get back instead of 12 hours as promised. Luggage room key was lost. Was told the wrong information about length of bus trip (was told 7 hours but it is actually a 16 hour bus ride). Could be a amazing place but staff ruined it
