I did not stay at this hostel I only had breakfast at their Cafe, called Jade cafe. I ordered a toast and an iced coffee and both were terrible. The coffee I explicitly ordered with "fresh milk" meaning no condensed milk they agreed and nevertheless brought me a coffee with condesned milk which I could not drink. The waiting time...

Lobby is pretty tiny - there's nowhere to hang out. The rooms themselves were pleasantly spacious, we were two friends and had a double bed each. Everything was clean and they provided some soapy things. Breakfast was scrambled eggs, nice enough. They are also happy to book tours for you.

I stayed in a mixed dorm room, which was clean and had pretty decent beds. Free breakfast is included, but its nothing special. If you're looking for a quiet backpackers hostel, this is probably the place to stay, Hideout definitely has a much more party sort of vibe. Can't complain about this place though. Cheap as well.

I stayed at PP for 2 nights, when I arrived they had already closed 1 dorm room because of bedbugs. But they had moved 1 guest to the other dorm with all his stuff, so of course also with the bedbugs! Worst thing is that they didn't tell me and let me sleep one more night in there!!! Besides this...

Rooms are clean but a little dated, staff friendly the location is good and just off the main road so not so much traffic not to expensive ok if you fancy a night out all pubs and bars just round the corner. But no so close if you fancy an early night you can't here them.

The hostel is clean and tidy, i always felt as though it was very safe and the staff are kind and have helped me sort out many aspects to my trip. The rooms are large, I had the best shower experience so far in vietnam, and the beds were really comfortable too! The other guests were also super friendly, which...

Where do I begin?? My dorm had no lock on the door, just a small locker inside. The things I left on my bed (a book, a camera charger and my pyjamas) we taken by the staff. First the book had been placed in their library downstairs. He seemed genuinely apologetic. Then later that day I realised more had gone...

Great hostel in nice part of town, the main attraction of this friendly, little hostel is the hospitality! The manager was incredibly helpful and made sure that we were safe and aware of relevant scams and gave us lots of helpful tips. The room was very comfortable and clean with AC!

First of all the attention was crap. The guy at the desk seems to not care about providing a service, I don't know what he is doing there. The room was very smelly of feet and humidity. The AC was leaking and there was a bucket on the floor beneath it, and that was their solution. Would not recommend this...

“The least expensive rooms will allow you to stay with other nice people. If you pay a little bit more, you can get a private room. Either way, all of the rooms are clean, nice, and quiet. Have fun!”
