They served me breakfast tho I hadn't stayed the night before. The receptionist was willing to help with anything I needed. Great service throughout my stay and my...

My boyfriend and I had a great time in this hotel. The rooms are small and simple, but the reception is great. They are very friendly and we often received free drinks when we came back from discovering the city, and they were interested in hearing our stories. Upon our arrival we even received free breakfast, which was very nice....

It is a very nice hotel close to the center of Hué. It is cheap, they have dorm rooms and private rooms. We had a private room for only $5 per person per night, with breakfast included! Only negative thing is that it's close to the road, so you should wear earplugs sleeping;)

My friend and I rented two bikes from here, they haven't been maintained very well, if at all. Brakes were loose, speedo didn't work on one of them, 2 of 4 helmets were fit to use, one of them cut out any time throttle was released. Not good.

I stayed in a 6 bed dorm at Hong Thien Backpacker Hotel for one night and I can only recommend this place. Small but clean rooms close to many bars and restaurant and the breakfast included was very good as well. There was no real common area to meet other travelers, but the amazingly friendly and helpful staff absolutely makes...

Stayed here for four nights while in Hue. There was certainly no glamor or fluff, but the price was great for a clean room with working air conditioning, and good free breakfast. Additionally, the staff was very helpful! We were always given good food recommendations and they helped us book comfortable, safe, and competitively priced transportation anywhere we wanted to...

Had a pleasant night at the Hong Thien Backpackers Hostel. It's perfectly located (bars, cafes, restaurants, shops and markets all over the place) and yes, no elevator although 5 stories. But the higher the better the view. Loved the balcony! And the staff was friendly, welcoming and helpful at any time. Breakfast was wonderful (get to choose from a list...
