Best hostel for your Ha Giang Loop”

Don’t hesitate a second, this place is made for backpackers ready for the Ha Giang loop. You’ll meet your fellow traveler here, rent your bike, book your bus for your next destination and the staff will help you plan the rest! They have a talk at 9pm giving recom for the loop, will teach you how to drive a semi-auto motorbike (almost brand new and cheap!). Huge toilet and shower, comfy bed for a good rest before starting. You’ll be able to leave your bag in the storage room for free. They provide protective gears, helmet, hook for water bottle, and most important lots of love for you to enjoy your experience :) I left some of my clothes, and gloves and others do the same so that backpackers can use them and then return it to the hostel for the next ones. All about sharing guys! Definitely recommend minimum 4 days for the loop as you will regret if you do it in less (as it’s amaaaazing - best of all Vietnam) because otherwise you’ll need to rush. Have fun! #BenOnTrack

I enjoyed my stay here. The staff is amazing! Most people who come to Ha Giang, come with the intention of doing the Ha Giang Loop. The staff members are willing to teach you or give you the basics of driving a motorbike, in order to help you feel more confident. They can help you plan your loop as well. The hostel is social but not a party hostel. The beds have curtains and the rooms are quite spacious.

Perfect if you want to do the Ha Giang Loop. They have a meeting in the evening at 9pm where they tell you EVERYTHING xou need to know. You can rent perfect bikes directly in the hostel and they will bring you to a good starting point the next morning. Big backpacks you can leave there of course and they show you how to tie down your small one. They also provide you with helmets and protection.

All around awesome ”

I stayed at Bong as a starting point for the loop! After reading other reviews I was excited to meet Liam, Debbie and the well maintained motorbikes. My expectations were all met, the staff is amazing and super helpful throughout the entire loop! They really care about travelers having a good trip, being safe and having good company. I met other people at the family dinner to head off together the next day. One of us asked for an easy rider as she felt more safe not driving herself. If you feel the same, ask for Tho. He is a lovely guy, safe driver and good group leader. He knew all the spots and honestly wanted us to have a good time. Highly recommend him! Just don’t expect much of an English conversation, rather get google translate ready :) Enjoy the loop and Bong hostel!

Great hostel for visiting the Ha Giang district”

The staff at Bong are very helpful and friendly. They even let me in very early in the morning, and let me sleep in the café free of charge. There were many people going in and out of the hostel, but the staff was very organized and efficient and kept things running smoothly. I rented a bike from the hostel with no issues, and when I returned from my three day trip was able to relax and take part in a family-style group dinner at the hostel. Bong also creates a very social atmosphere without resorting to being a "party hostel." I highly recommend Bong

The hostel is in a great location, near many shops and restaurants, and only a 30 minute walk from the bus station. The rooms are clean and spacious, and each bed has a privacy curtain, light, and outlet. The owner (Liam) and the staff are great! They gave lots of advice for the loop. The breakfast is either noodle soup or eggs and bread. I booked an easy rider through the hostel. My driver was Tho, and he was amazing! I would absolutely recommend staying here.

Honestly no complaints whatsoever from this hostel. Everything from the staff to the facilities were amazing. Free breakfast was one of the best I’ve had on my travels. Stayed here for one night before I did the loop, rented an awesome bike from them, and had a group of about 12 people that were leaving the same day as us so the hostel included a free tour guide for us! Showed us good home stays to sleep at each night which included lots of partying with the group. Would definitely recommend if you want to meet fun people to do the loop with
