Had booked 2 nights but only stayed 1. Booked a double bed for my boyfriend and I, the locker provided only fitted 1 of our bags. Easy check in, the staff at reception had some English. The bathroom is located inside the dormitory room and the door is a little noisy so was conscious about using it at night, throughout the night and early morning. We were woken up by a person chatting on a loud phone call and then a couple packing up there stuff at 6:30am. The couple had no respect for others sleeping. This is not the fault of the hostel but it might be an idea to put up a sign asking people to be mindful at certain times. I'm pretty sure staff were changing the rubbish bag in the bathroom around 7am as when I got up later it was an empty bin..this could have waited untill a little later in the morning. The room got warm at night, we turned on the fan but it was very loud and we were conscious of others. Location is an hour walk outside the main district so prepare to walk or else spend some money on Grabs. Nice enough budget Hostel, provided tootbrushes and shampoo.

Had een Double Room geboekt via hotels.com voor 4 nachten voor €35. Hotel ligt in gebied 5 oftewel Chinatown. Als je niet de geluidsoverlast van bars & verkeer wilt zoals in het centrum (1), is deze wijk zeker een aanrader. Nadeel was dat ik per nachtbus uit Nha Trang kwam, en dus om 6:30 ging inchecken. En dan had ik toch al zo'n 2 uur in de bus terminal gezeten. Hierdoor moest ik van 7:00 tot 12:00 voor 5 uur extra betalen, oftewel VND150.000. (beetje overdreven, want heb de afgelopen dagen gezien dat het hotel voor het merendeel leeg staat) Kamer (#211) zelf zijn netjes, met WiFi, kabel tv, koelkast, airco & (lauwe) douche. Wat ik wel mis is een kluis of safety deposit bij de receptie. Had een paar keer dat ik terugkwam eind van de middag en m'n kamer was nog niet schoongemaakt. Lift hebben ze niet, dus je zal moeten traplopen (kijk hierbij uit met je hoofd van de 1e naar de 2e verdieping, achterste deel van het plafond is een stuk lager). En nog een opmerking, ze verhuren (volgens mij op de 1e verdieping) ook kamers per 1 of 2 uur! Dus ze zijn in ieder geval "guest friendly".
