We booked a room online but it wasn't ready for us despite us arriving after the stated time. Ben seemed friendly enough but didn't check our booking and gave us a double instead of twin room. The room was cold, only had a blanket no sheets! Bathroom was soaking wet with hairs everywhere. Sink falling off the wall and water poured all over the floor everytime tap was turned on! We told them about it and one of Ben's friends came in to 'fix' it and just made it worse.
Ben offered us his tour, we found it cheaper in town for a private tour in a car with a great guide. When we didn't book with him he was offish with us for the rest of our stay. Quite immature. Also funny (and annoying) he thinks he's a dj playing really loud dance music in the hall in the late afternoon just for himself?
We booked a bus through the hostel, had to keep nagging him to give us our tickets. He told us the wrong time for pickup and the taxi turned up wile we were having breakfast (no tea!) and started shouting at us. The receptionist who didn't speak English woke Ben up who came downstairs and got really angry with us when we said he'd told us the wrong time. He was shouting and swearing at the top of his voice in his own hotel first thing in the morning - so amateur and embarrassing.
Don't fall for the reviews about a 'secret tour's it's just his lame way of selling it. Our tour (bike or car)was cheaper, longer and included a great lunch.
Overall a bad memory of a great place in Vietnam - stay elsewhere!
