The best chain of hostels around!”

This was the third location of Central Backpackers I have stayed in in Vietnam and they are all as great as each other. Fantastic value for money as they have great breakfast and happy hour each day, the most comfortable dorms I have ever stayed in and the staff are always there to help you with anything you need, I honestly couldn’t be more impressed by them. A great hostel if you are looking to make some friends also! Finally the hideaway tour which is ran by these guys, WOW. The best part of my entire trip. Thanks so much guys!

We absolutely recommend this place!”

Like many we arrived at the hostel in the early hours of the morning. They made us feel comfortable as possible form the start and allowed us to enjoy their free breakfast prior to checking in. All the staff are incredibly helpful! Booking tours and onwards travel with them is very convenient. Great place to stay and met some great people whilst there.
Nothing keep up the high standards!

Our stay at the hostel was great! just what we needed :)”

This place felt like more than a hostel it felt like a hotel ! the rooms were immaculate, good air conditioning, and the shower was very good! The staff at the hostel were really friendly and helpful booking a trip for us whilst we stayed there :) This place was also good for meeting new people, and was a very sociable place ! The breakfast at the hostel was also good, and it also served food on an evening which was a bonus as it was so hot we didn’t feel like walking too far ..
nothing!

Best Short Stay”

It was a very nice short stay for me, they have a place to waiting and chill for the check in also during the time check out waiting for my bus at night. The manager is really welcoming and speaks english very well, the location is perfect in the town but not that crowded. And they have a great ice coffee

Best place to make friends”

Staff was amazing. They&#39;ve been closed for 2y after Covid, so we&#39;re happy to have stayed with them. Everyone was friendly and attentive, the bar, the foosball and billiard and the pool were great. They have different events planned (ping pong, free beers,...). It&#39;s the ideal place to meet other people&#47;backpackers. Would surely stay here again.
Everything was really good. The pillows were a bit too hard for me, but if that&#39; the only thing than it was a lovely hotel ;) ;)

Great hostel”

Very friendly staff, good location, place was spacious and clean. First hostel I&#39;ve stayed where they clean the rooms, make beds and clean the pool daily. Enough guest that you are sure to make friends. Staff was also great at advising on other potential areas to visit next on my trip. Also an amazing view. All in all great place.

Phong Nha stay”

We had the triple room which was super spacious and very comfortable. Excellent value for money. The hostel was super clean and staff super helpful. Free BBQ on Sunday night was delicious.
There currently (March 2020) is construction of villas to the back of the hostel near the pool area so there was construction noise during the day. Also this is a party hostel... which isn’t necessarily a negative, but definitely useful to know. We happily got on it the first night but most people where on it every night. Night times around the pool&#47; bar are not super chilled. In saying that the bar closes at 11 so doesn’t affect your sleep.

We had a really large triple room and massive bathroom for 2 of us, with a terrace as well. The atmosphere in the hostel is grest; very sociable in the evening aided by the free drinks at different times throughout the evening but it was still quiet enough to get a good night&#39;s sleep! Restaurant serves good quality food at very reasonable prices and an excellent breakfast ss well. Nice pool area when weather suitable. Staff really helpful. Overall great place to stsy for the money!
No fridge. No chairs on terrace.
