“Awesome place and good fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

Home away from home is a very true description of this place! Ben is a lovely guy who speaks good english and the rest of his team of staff are good fun. The atmosphere is very relaxed, you can help yourself to tea or coffee whenever, use the internet and chill with some beers with the guys in the evening.
We stayed in the dorm room, great and practical but not ideal if you hope to get to bed early (well not the nights we were there anyway, music and fun happening downstairs which you can hear clearly, but much better to just get involved!).
Dalat is beautiful and Ben and friends have lots of tour options available for you to do to explore this incredible area. We did a day canyoning which was amazing! And then a motorbike day tour which was stunning....also if you're not confident riding a motorbike they'll sort guides to go with you for the day.
Breakfast (eggs and toast) included in the price!

Initially I booked Villa Cam Ly for one week and ended staying for 3 weeks!! I loved my time here!! Ben and all his staff are magnificent in every way, they make you feel at home, very welcoming, polite, will do anything for you and get you involved in most activities to introduce you to new people staying at the accommodation!!

The accommodation was clean with a great vibe! Breakfast was included! The tours were also amazing! I did a tour with Ben of Dalat which I would definitely recommend to anyone! For me the tour was all about experiencing new things! I also did the Waterfall Abseil which again was amazing!

Dalat is a beautiful place and anyone who visits should definitely stay with Ben etc, you'll have the most amazing time, you'll meet great people and you'll always be well looked after!!

Ben is great, if your looking for a chill place with music then come here. A little bit away from the town but the staff is extremely friendly, the coffee is free and delicious, and they are laid back. If you are looking for a relaxing place to sleep, especially early book a hotel. Cool place for cool people

Arrived at villa can ly without a booking and sadly they were full. We were greeted by ben who was doing his best to try and find us somewhere to stay. After some phone calls he told us everywhere was full, but if we wanted we could stay in his attic, it's usually not a room he rents out but it had it's own bathroom and he did us an amazing deal! While we were there he was so great!! Nothing was too much trouble and he even gave us a couple of bottles of vodka on the house so we could all party together! On our second day we did his secret bike tour which was amazing and great value for money. We went to a tone of places and got to get a really good feel for the local town. THANKS SO MUCH BEN, we had the best time ever!

We arrived to villa cam ly with little expectations, due to the lack of reviews online about it. But were definitely glad we went. Our traveling party of 5 were immediately greeted with complementary iced coffees and tea (which you can receive throughout the duration of your stay) and also to Ben (the hosts) beautiful pet Alaskan malamute, Lion (who is always up for a pat). The rooms are spacious with great amenities. the town is also only an easy 10 minute walk away. The price is definitely reasonable for the traveller on a budget (which we were). We were also invited to dine with Ben and his staff at night for dinner, where we were served traditional foods and a few beers were shared. I would also recommend doing Bens easyrider tour throughout Da Lat. At first we were a bit apprehensive about paying the price, but after doing the tour we found the price to be justified (and it was still cheaper than other competitors). Ben is very passionate and knowledgeable about Da Lat, and is more than welcome to share his lovely home and culture with anyone. One of the best places we stayed in Vietnam!

As soon as we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and offered free vietnamese tea and coffee for the duration of our stay. The room is very clean and comfortable with all reasonable amenities provided. To top it off we were invited as guests to Ben's (manager) birthday meal with amazing local food and beer. His whole family made us feel so welcome and it was a joy to be with them. It is an easy 10 minute walk to the centre and 20 minutes to crazy house and we were given very helpful clear advise in very good english. This is a man clearly very passionate about De Lat and making his guests feel at home no matter how far away home may be. Would recommend to anyone.
