      Room on the top floor. With garden and outdoor shower”

      Value for money. Air conditioned room with attached bathroom. Very basic. Is great for me. Bring your own towels and toiletries. They don't provide any. Anyway I like to use my own. The little garden is nice!!! Can sit and chat with others. Don't expect the Park Hyatt !!!!! But is great for the price. The problem is climbing up the stairs. Total of about 85/trip🤣🤣🤣

      soooooo.. love this hostel, at the first time. nice living room and nice rooftop garden. even the dorm seems rarely be cleaned and less light. but, well i know i just book it for 1 night, then before i leave in the next day i already said that i want extend my stay there and they said yes. but when i back late night my stuff are packed and away from the place where it should be, my bed being filled. then they said i can't stay there because it's full tonight. OW, WHAT?! but then again i embrace that as my journey to move to a better place. ps. met someone in the next hostel and he's also stayed in Rou Hostel. he said somehow this hostel choose someone who paid more from differet site.

      The best hostel ever”

      Bus was there to pick us up on our arrival. Free welcome dinner was organised so we were given the opportunities to talk to other backpackers and exchange informations. Also tours are provided at reception. Bike rental walking distance, laundry next door. Friendly owner gives you informations what to do where to go around the area. We certainly had great time with Mr.Rou:)

      Địa điểm tốt - ổn so với giá tiền”

      Mình ở phòng có 10 giường. Nằm ở giường tầng 2. Ở đây 5 đêm. Ưu điểm: Hostel gần chợ và khu vực dân sinh, có thể tìm được nhiều nhà hàng bình dân ở ngay gần đó. Khá gần trung tâm, có thể đi bộ ra chợ bến thành và khám phá xung quanh. Vệ sinh phòng ngủ và phòng tắm ổn, nhân viên lịch sự. Điểm trừ: 1 phòng tắm bị tắc cống hôm đầu mình đến nên hơi bị ám ảnh, sau đó thì ko xảy ra nữa. Wifi nhiều khi khá yếu. Giường dễ rung (vì mình nằm tầng trên nên rất ngại với người bên dưới). Tóm lại: chất lượng ổn so với giá bỏ ra. Phù hợp với các bạn đi du lịch chi phí thấp và hầu như chỉ cần tìm chỗ ngủ
