I've traveled in Vietnam for a month now and at the end of my trip I have to say ROU has been the best hostel so far. In the middle of the backpacker area but not on one of the busy streets so easy to get a good nights sleep if you wanted to. There only seemed to be one dorm room but the beds were huge and comfortable. The best thing about this place was most certainly the staff. They made extra care to remember everyone's names and story, making sure everybody was always happy at the same time as running the restaurant downstairs! When my friend had his Iphone stolen from a bar nearby the ROU staff took him to the local police station the next day, when the police were unco-operative the manager wrote a letter to the travel insurance company explaining the situation.
I am yet to find another place so welcoming and comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone.
