Do yourself a favor: do not stay here.
Yes, you can get a $10 room but I have no doubt that you could find a better $10 room elsewhere in Hoi An. The staff were rude and seemed to view guests as an unwelcome irritation rather than welcomed visitors. I was taken to a dark and slightly damp room on the first floor. I was exhausted after a 12hr sleeper bus ride and a cursory glance made me think it would be acceptable. This was a mistake.
On closer inspection (post check-in) I found the linen was stained, the bed seriously uncomfortable, the bathroom only just acceptably clean (and I mean 'only just'), the A/C didn't work and neither did the Wi-fi. The bathroom light made an irritating buzzing noise when turned on, the hot water ran out quickly and the view from my very stiff window was of a concrete wall, one meter away, on the other side of a dark and damp rear access alley. The owner made no attempt to fix the A/C or Wi-fi and became aggressive when I pushed the issue. I agree with the comments of previous reviewers about the female staff having very loud phone conversations late in the evening and would add that the owner has a penchant for watching the football in the lobby with the volume turned up to 11.
Were there any positives to this dump? Only that it reminded me that TripAdvisor should always be consulted before check-in; previous poor reviews were spot on. Without a shadow of a doubt the service specifically, and the hotel generally, was the worst I experienced in Vietnam, a truly wonderful country.
Don't be tempted by the OK looking street facade - walk on by because any other hotel would be an improvement.
