AMAZING hostel!”

Stay here in tam coc, the rooms are clean and you have your own bunk space with curtain and light (very private). The common area outside is wonderful with the pool and loungers available. The food is awesome (tacos, burritos, snacks, desserts) and good music playing!

Backpackers resort ”

A very well equipped hostel that ticks all the boxes.. Nice pool area great for relaxing, beds are individually boxed for privacy and comfort and bathrooms are clean and tidy. Only serves Mexican food and is quite expensive, but it is by far the best Mexican restaurant in Vietnam that I have tried.

This is one hostel I would recommend to everyone. The rooms and beds are good. It is a bit more pricey, but the things they provide and location are really good. Only stayed one night, but if we had more time we would definitely stayed here longer.

Club Hostel”

This is not your average hostel where people wondered what to do with their house and decided to add some bunk beds and charge people for staying the night. Around the pool you will find plenty oportunities to sit and meet people, a bar, an open restaurant, and the buildings with the rooms. The dorms are equipped with beds in capsule hotel style and pretty well thought-out in general. It shows that this was purpose-built. They have a tabletennis-table and swings. Nice. The bathrooms are spacious, clean, and equipped with plenty hangers and a bench to put your stuff. However, they do not have a single power outlet so you cannot use the hairdryer that is provided (or other electrical appliances)...unless you want to be an annoying roommate and use the outlets in the dorm or use one outside by the pool in front of a bemused audience. When I asked at the bar whether or not they have milkshakes, they looked at me as if I had asked for a particularly exclusive French red wine from the 1740s.

Good to party”

This hostel has everything you need to live in there and never get out, nice swimmingpool and bar, sofas, etc. The restaurant is more expensive than the usual in Vietnam. Views and location are amazing! Also shared rooms are nice and beds offer privacy. I would only say that if you’re not into drinking until late maybe this is not the best hostel. Staff is really nice!

Cool hostel”

L'hostel est super bien situé. On peut louer un vélo et aller au Mua Caves ou à la Bich Dong Pagoda facilement. La piscine est bien et il y a un restaurant, mais c'est un peu cher. Les installations sont très bien et on est à côté de la rivière pour faire une balade en bateau. La salle de bain est super et spacieuse, très propre. Le seul point négatif est l'air conditionné. Elle part automatiquement de 17h à 10h le lendemain matin, seulement, et ça prend beaucoup de temps avant que ça se rafraichisse donc on se croirait dans un sauna, ce qui n'est pas très plaisant pour dormir. À part ce point, je recommanderais à 100%.

Hipster Hostel zu überteuerten Preisen”

Die Lage ist perfekt, direkt am See, das Hostel schick mit Pool im Zentrum. Mir wurde das Hostel empfohlen, ich kann den Hype aber nicht ganz nachvollziehen. Die Preise für ein Bett im Dorm sind eher hoch, Frühstück ist nicht enthalten und vor Ort sehr teuer! Ein Tee (Teebeutel) kostet schlappe 40K, fast wie in Deutschland. Auch werden Fahrräder und Motorbikes teuer als im Ort vermietet. Insgesamt fehlt mir die gemütliche Atmosphäre und die persönliche Note. Das Hostel ist eher ein Hotel für mich... Zum Kennenlernen von anderen Backpackern nicht die schlechteste Wahl, aber für den Preis gibt es in der Umgebung traumhafte Homestays inkl. liebevollem Frühstück.
