Exeptional location with all the facilities you need”
This has been one of the best locations to stay during our trip. + wonderful location, walk away from town with stuning views + best place for a sunset view, honestly + friendly staff + great place to get a tour, rent a bike, get a transfer - spent a night not in a bangalow, but normal double room and unfortunately it’s quite sad comparing to a bangalow.
Perfect place to recharge”
I ended up spending two weeks on Cat Ba Island and a huge reason why is because this hostel was the ideal place to stay for a while and recharge before resuming my travels. Delicious breakfast buffets every morning, waking up to the ocean waves lapping over the rocks, several decks and balconies for reading or relaxing, stunning beaches a few minutes walk up the road and town and all the restaurants a few minutes the other way. Easy to meet other travelers in the dorm room. Lovely, professional staff. Rooms were cleaned extensively around the same time each day. Would 10/10 recommend!
The dorm is very clean and there are 2 bathrooms for only 6 people which is very nice. It's located a bit outside tge town, so you have to walk for 10 minutes. You have a nice view from the restaurant, tge breakfast is average. If you want to grab some drinks, you have to go into the city, because the histel bar closes at 10pm, but I think that's normal on this island. I would book this hostel again.
Cool Bamboo Shack”
This was the coolest place you can stay on Cat Ba. The private bamboo shacks are really cool, yes, they aren’t fancy and the windows are really think. So you might need to sleep with ear plugs, but this view is breathtaking! For this price it’s really good, in my opinion! Breakfast was good, too.
Cold shower and average food”
Little bit out the way, rocked up and was happy with what we saw. Stuffed up booking by a day but they managed to accommodate. Showers had barely any pressure, and hot water was barely a drip. Awesome views, but bed was a rock (harder than normal Asia beds). Decent juices, but food was pretty meh. Pizza was more like a biscuit, and the mixed veggies didn't taste like anything. Workmen starting at 730 with grinders, but even with that the place felt a bit neglected. Wifi was crap. Had full strength on it but it just wouldn't load with any speed.
Beautiful View! Overall great stay.”
What a lovely getaway after leaving HCMC. All around great vibe. It was quiet but lively with people enjoying themselves (though it was not crowded while we were there. The free breakfast was good. Wifi speed was good - 18 mbps while we were there! There are so many levels and viewpoints at this place and you could walk down to the shoreside to watch the boats in the harbor which you can also see directly from many areas in the hotel. Get a room with an ocean view... its so worth it. Staff were nice and booking a tour is cheap from the hostel. In town the full day Ha Long cruise was $29 and up where we asked but only $15 from the hotel. Overall great experience and I would definitely come back!
We had the private room with balcony and it was great. The view from the balcony was amazing. You can rent a scooter, do laundry, and book halong bay tours from here. The sunset views from the restaurant is also spectacular. There is a beach waling distance from here that is nice to swim and chill at during the day. I would definitely recommend staying here. The only complaint is that the walls are super thin so it can be noisy at times. But we didn't come here to sleep so it was fine!
We really like this place, we are regular clients. The hostel is located near the sea and has a spectacular sea view, you can observe it from your room. Everything is clean, they have really nice stuff. Very good choice for everyone!
awesome location sind most stunning views ”
we stayed in a bungalow for three nights with amazing views over the ocean from our window. couldn't find a better place on cat ba island. breakfast was a great choice of local and western food buffet with fresh fruit and salad. bungalows are nice, clean and cozy. bathrooms super clean, also public ones. very good location, just five minutes by foot to central passing beautiful floating fish restaurants. !!!The best though was the food at the sister hotel “le pont“ in town. my highest recommendation to go for dinner. freshest and most delicious seafood we have tasted in a long time!
Best Location on the Island”
I traveled alone in Vietnam by motorbike for over 2 months & this was one of the nicest hostels I stayed in. I actually stayed at another hostel my first night on Cat Ba but didn't like it so spent a few hours driving around looking at hostels & this one is BY FAR the best. The location was perfect: it'a about 1 km away from the city - close enough to walk in for food, but far enough away to not be bothered by all the busloads of tourists. The view from Le Pont was incredible: it's situated on the tip of a peninsula with spectacular views of both the bay & the town. I stayed in the dorm room for 96,000 dong (less than $5), which included a HUGE buffet breakfast, cooked to order eggs & more food than you can imagine. I've recommended this place to a bunch of other travelers i met along the way & you should stay here too.
Good hostel, bad restaurant”
+ The hostel was perfect! amazing view, nice and clean room, very good facilities, happy hour beer and great buffet breakfast! Really recommende it! - we found the restaurant totally overpriced and the portions are really small. Also the independent kayak tour was really expensive 40usd for 2 people for just a couple of hours
The view is worth it ”
Best thing of this accomodation is the location, not in the middle of town but close enough! View from restaurant/ bar and rooms is amazing. The staff is nice and helpful especially Phoung who is a truly legend! She sorted everything out
Ok, it was raining always, not the fault of the guesthouse. But a damaged roof made me not sleep at all, as it was smashing against the wall all the time. It was dropping inside the room and after I told staff about it I just got a lough. Neighbour's room got rats so I didn't want to change room.
Best times are over”
I stayed there for 3 days and changed rooms twice. But it didn't get better. My roof has been damaged so the bambus roof smashed all the time on my hut which was very annoying. Like somebody knockes on your roof the whole time. When I told the staff they didn't care. Watching the movie was more interesting for them. Same happened when I told them that lot of rain comes through the window. I got a smile but that's it. They offered me to change the room but as some guests told me they had rats I preferred to stay in the wet room instead of the rat room. I never have seen so much non interest from the staff as here. Worst stay so far.
Very low ceiling in the room, very humid, no window or fan in the bathroom, full of ants in the bed, very shabby room. Good view and OK breakfast, that's it. We left a night early, couldn't bear to stay another night.
Sleeping with a view”
Close to town, but just fra enough away to feel alone. This was the Best stay of our Vietnam trip 😎 good breakfast too
Just far enough away from the 'action' of Cat Ba town but an easy walk (~10 minutes) if you feel the need to wander that way. Therefore, convenient, easy to get to, very affordable, delightfully pleasant & helpful staff, nice views of the harbor, especially the stunning sunset, & everything you could need right on sight. Highly recommend.
Relaxed and well located”
Located waterside and perched on rocky slopes, you have a great view from the rooms and restaurant area. A 5min walk to the nearest swimming beach, 10/15min walk to the main town area, you have convenient proximity and distance to suit all moods. Unless you're looking for a party hostel, this place will surely tick the boxes. Staff are helpful, friendly but a bit shy - more among those who have limited English abilities. This isn't an obstacle, however, as all necessary requests and enquiries were met. Oh, and they put on a good breakfast spread - complimentary. I'd stay again - have already booked three nights in addition to my oroginal two.
Stunning view from the room. Room was just nice and clean. Only down side is, you can hear clearly when people walk by. It makes me can't really sleep well. It is very loud and you can even feel the shaking on bed from the foot steps. I guess it is due to flooring issue. Overall it was fine.
The views and the value!”
when we booked this Hostel we had no idea how great it would be. When the bus from the ferry was dropping off other travelers, we were not impressed with most of the hotels and hostels we had seen. We were with another couple being the last to be dropped off and just past the busyness of the city we saw our destination on the hill looking over the bay. Close enough to the city but far enough away from the noise. It is a 5 minute walk to the bustling center of the city or a 5 minute walk to other direction to a gorgeous beach! The Hostel can organize tours and will rent motorbikes to explore the island. As a guest you do not have to surrender your passport for the privilege, which is a nice bonus. The rooms were clean and services daily. Plenty of wet bathrooms if you end up in a room with a shared bathroom. The ONLY complaint is that the staff could be a bit more attentive. Service on the terrace is slow and you have to actually call staff over even if it is to replace an empty beer.
