    Amazing! ”

    Our stay here was awesome! The room was incredibly spacious and the bathroom was really big(not super common from our experience in Vietnam) Comfortable bed, super clean room and delicious breakfast- you could chose anything off the restaurants menu which was lovely! The hostel is very close to Easy Tiger which is a popular spot for travellers to party in the evenings- but far enough away that the dance music doesn’t keep you up at night! We only stayed one night as we were gearing up to leave Phong Nha however we would have loved to stay longer! Highly recommend

    Highly recommend! ”

    We went for two days and stayed for 5. Had a private double. The breakfast that is included is great! You can pick from the full restaurant breakfast menu, and coffee/tea you fill yourself. The road is noisy, and you will hear all the bikes in the morning, but the lounging area is nice and the girls that work there are friendly. We got offered late checkout at 2pm as we were going on the night bus, for a late nap and shower. New towels are given almost daily, which really isn’t necessary, fast WiFi, and nice balcony views to the back (a limestone karst is right in your face). -NO water refills was a bummer. Great value for money!

    Perfect for short stay in Phong Nha”

    Nice hostel located right in the center of Phong Nha (in front of bus stop). They offer a lot of services: free breakfast, tour booking, motorbike rentals, information about town’s points of interest, and food & drinks. Social hostel with very nice staff. Room was clean and big, with nice bathroom. Would recommend this hostel, perfect for a layover in Phong Nha!

    Just a place to rest your head. Cafe has a nice ambience, but very mellow. Breakfast is skimpy, when it includes sausage or bacon expect a half piece of mediocre quality each.

    Comfy Hostel in a Great Location”

    Arrived right in the centre of Phong Nha at 4.30am and we were able to check in and get into our room very quickly. We had a double room with a private bathroom and it was more than enough room for myself and my partner. The staff were always helpful and friendly, the included breakfasts were always delicious and a good way to start the day. Unlike some, the Gecko Hostel didn’t have that typical “hostel” vibe, more like a chilled out hotel for solo travelers or couples, without the hefty price tag. The only con was that in the bathroom, the shower didn’t have a shower curtain, so the entire bathroom and bathroom floor ended up covered in water.

    This hotel is amazing! The bedroom was big, nice and clean. The food at the restaurant downstairs is very good!! You should try the tuna panini!!! The breakfast are good too. The only con is that the hot water did not last long the first night and did not work the second. They also offer tours for the caves, but honestly, rent a bike and do it on your own (you’ll save at least 700k) :)

    Comfortable, friendly, good value”

    So arriving at 4:30am from Tam Coc, I was more than happy to be given an early check-in, allowing a bit more sleep before going to caves.. comfortable thick foam mattress, spacious female dorm with ensuite bathroom..excellent breakfast with various choices, and tea or coffee with refills..lovely big reception hang out area, with industrial themed decor(mostly), I loved the round table tops made from recycled bicycle chains! The lady on reception( didnt catch her name) was very helpful and has good english if you listen carefully..free beer at happy hour in the evening ( I discovered this too late)..it's just across the road from where the sleeper bus let's people off .

    The room i book is a female dorm. They give me the mix dorm first and i ask them to change. So i was put in a room with girls only at the first night, but they still put guys in my room at the second night. SOME staff is not friendly but most of them are okay. Good location and very good price for dorm and brackfast. If you don't mind they don't change the bed sheet.

    Too big and not really nice”

    It's a really big hostel but I think there are no small ones in Phong Nha. Due to the inside bathroom and the rain outside it was very damp in the room. Some of the blankets smelled very, very badly - the covers don't seem to get changed. It's really gros. But at least we were always just 4 girls in a 6-bed female dorm.
