The Hideout Hostel Hoi An's bar serving really ice cold beer and bar snacks. Escape from the crowd in Hoi An yet still manage to enjoy the town. Our views back across the water to Hoi An are awesome - a photographers dream. Chillout on our open balcony and enjoy the magnificent sunsets with your favourite food and cocktails. Listen to great music until late. We are an easy 10 minute walk across the Cam Nam bridge and directly opposite the Hoi An market.
