6-Bed Dormitory -- Female Only
Stayed 2 nights in June 2017
quite good, staff not nice”
The hostel is CLEAN (and that's not common in Cat Ba), cozy and in a good position. The staff tho is quite awful. They don't help you with anything, they barely speak English and they're not very nice. Also, they start cleaning the rooms as soon as someone checks out, even at 6.30 am, with 0 respect for people sleeping, shouting on their walkie talkie and slamming doors. Also, internet doesn't get to the 3rd floor and they don't turn on the a/c in the common area (the only one where internet works properly). So you have to choose a/c or internet.

Change the staff”
the hostel in general was good, a bit expensive tours, but I booked in another hostel. But the staff should be better. When I came they didn't have my reservation, even it was paid. OK, not staff's fault, but then I had a feeling like they don't want me there. I didn't get voucher for breakfast, for my second day like others, I had to ask...They made my bed and took the key from locker before my checkout...when I asked the guy about the trip with trekking+cruise, he told me that I shouldn't go there, I can rent motorbike and go on my own, but I wanted trekking and also cruise, because the weather wasn't so.nice to spend all day on the boat...I found it weird behavior

Crowded ”
I paid $6.59 Canadian dollar for first night I thought there will be 8bed dorm max I got there and i was with some 30bed dorm room! :s I wasn't too impressed! It was crowded, messy and the staff is not keen on letting anyone use the kitchen! The view is great beds are comfertabel but I needed a space to feel at home and this place feels too much of a hotel / restaurant to me! The same night i walked down to find another hostel more chill And I found Catba hostel for only 50 000 dong just 5min away ! I liked it way better than here!
