I stayed at Sapa Backpackers because I liked the idea that my money was going towards helping kids. When you first get off the bus in Sapa (drops you near the lake), it's about a 10-15min walk. Usually on of the Hmong women who are clamouring for you to byu a tour off them will show you where to go and walk you there (in the hopes that you'll then book a trip with them).
Sapa Backpackers is EXCELLENTLY located near everything while still being on a quiet street. The little girls who help out are adorable, the tea and breakfast is fantastic, and the owner even helped me rent a motorbike on my own so I could drive around on my own (definitely a must-do).
If I had more time on my trip, I would have definitely stayed a week longer to help out with the Hope Centre, which most of the people in my dorm were there for. STAY HERE, you won't regret it!!
