“so helpful and pleasant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2011

Stayed here with family of 5. The hostel is through the convenience shop so it was very handy for drinks and snacks. Brilliant position for food, markets museums. The owner could not have been more helpful. Rooms are basic but spotlessly clean and with 2 pillows each!!

Great communication beforehand, we arrived very late. She booked our onward journey to Dalat, booked cheap hotel for us. WOuld not hesitate to recommend.

Stayed July 2011, travelled with family
Thank thesusangeorge
