    I highly recommend this hotel, had a great stay there! Location is great, very close to the center, but not to close do you avoid all the noise. Rooms are very spacious and cosy, beds are a bit hard, but it’s everywhere like that. They also have great food there! Staff was very helpful and friendly, thry advices me with everything I needed. They also have yours there for very good prices. Thanks for a great stay! ☺️👍👍👍

    Can’t beat a $5 private room. Prices for tours were fairly priced. Food was decent as well. Clean and secure.

    A lovely family run hotel, the staff were so lovely, friendly and helpful. The location is a winner, right on the sea front with stunning views from the rooms at the front!! Only slight draw back is that the beds are rather hard. But a lovely hotel, we would definitely recommend :-)

    Really enjoyed it here, very cheap and relatively central on the seafront in Cat Ba. Beds are quite hard so be prepared for this. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. I had my own room for about $5 a night, so roughly the same price as a lot of hostel dorms in the area. Room was Ensuite, with a TV and 2 wall fans. I would stay again for sure.

    This place is a great value with a great view. They organized a nice cruise in Halong bay at a decent price. As mentioned, make sure to store your valuables at reception as your room gets cleaned everyday.

    Great value for the room. Spacious, clean Private room for 5$ is hard to beat. The couple that runs the hostel are very nice and will know all the information. The boat ride tour from the hostel was only $14 for a quality all day tour. Only things to note is house keeping cleans everyday so be careful with leaving money in room and there isn't atmosphere because it's basically a hotel.

    While we were there, the property was actually run as 'Homie's Hostel'. Homie is a great host, super helpful and always willing to go the extra mile for his guests. We couldn't find the 1-day-cruise, motorbike or bus tickets anywhere cheaper then booking directly with him. The rooms are huge, nice & clean and all of them have excellent view over the bay. Location is perfect - a few minutes to the center on the one side, and 20mins to a beautiful quiet beach on the other. Great value for money!!!

    Really good staff that runs this place. I had fun hanging out with one of the guys who works there. The room had a beautiful view of the waterside. Unfortunately there wound up being a bunch of ants on one of the beds, but the guy I was hanging out with got some insect repellant. You honestly get what you pay was nice to have a private room regardless of its state. I hope they wind up doing a thorough cleaning of the room at some point.

    The stay in Trang Anh was wonderful especially to stay in a private room for such a price. Therefore this place is no-frills and you get what you pay for. The only thing is, that the guy was so frugal about hot water and electricity that you constantly have to ask for hot water or light. I understand this is costing money but I found this a bit annoying. Maybe charge $1 per room more and get the costs covered?

    You get what you pay for. This is a family restaurant with rooms spiralling up stairs. Rooms smell mouldy, signs of water damage, feel old and dusty. Beds are usually hard in Vietnam which is fine but these were like cement. If you super need your own room, are on a tight buget and don't care much, this is fine. But spend a few dollars more and you'll be in comparitable heaven in any other dorm room. The views are nice but who spends time sitting in a sad hostel room. Air con did not work.
