Chilled nice place ”
I ended up staying 6 days at Mr Zoom's. The private room with bathroom for $5 was one of the best deals I got in Vietnam. If you're looking for a budget place, in great location, and you're not too picky, this is ideal for you. By the way, the best Pho Bo I had in Vietnam was just a few steps downhill from Mr Zoom. Don't miss it!

Cheap, clean, convenient, easy.”
Price, location, staff
From the second we arrived, the staff all seemed keen to make us feel welcome. They asked about tours etc saying they can help arrange them, But put us under no pressure to do so. After extensive looking around, we booked with him because it was the cheapest comparable tour we found. Excellent staff, clean modern rooms, 1 minute walk to the waterfront.

cheap stay at mr. zoom ”
cheap prize, good location, mr. zoom was friendly and helpful
Room was nice but at the second morning we discovered some bed bug looking bites. We could change the room quickly but didn't have the feeling that the problem was taken seriously (i.e. room cleaned properly). Good location near the riverside. Feels actually more like a hotel than a hostel, e.g. no real common area. Only Mr. Zoom speaks english but he can arrange really lots of activities. Was ok.

Noisy, acceptable and tours”
Clean rooms, close to town, free wifi
The room was adequate, not the best we've had for the price. Very noisy though. Right next to the the road so woken up at dawn by the many tooting a of horns. No air con but fan was sufficient. Breakfast was actually decent. They arranged good tours for us with no problems. Mr zoom wasn't present and other staff struggled with English and weren't the most helpful, but when Mr zoom was there he was great!
