Hostel Locations

  • Hanoi Hostels

    Choose from either of our Hanoi hostels - or do a night in each - they’re both so different!

    Downtown: Right in the heart of Hanoi’s Old Quarter, our Downtown Hostel is the biggest hostel in Vietnam and is known for its legendary bar, nightly parties and is a constant hive of activity. It’s close to delicious street food, cheap Bia Hoi spots (local fresh beer) and pumping bars. If it’s a party you’re after, you won’t be disappointed.

    Original: Situated down a small, quiet lane just one block north of the famous St Joseph's Cathedral, the Original Hostel is where it all began! The hostel is a short walk to Hoan Kiem Lake, the centre of town and is perfectly located to explore and get lost in Hanoi’s historic Old Quarter. Our guests love staying here for the chilled out atmosphere, and use it as a base to absorb everything Hanoi has to offer.

  • Castaways

    The most infamous of all our trips and locations, Castaways is a must-do! This 2-night, 3-day trip sees you on a remote island in Ha Long Bay, staying in our architecturally designed beachfront digs. Known as the Party Island, Castaways means letting loose! Fill your days with adventure sports and adrenalin, chill on the beach or explore the surrounding bays on our party boat. At night? What happens on Castaways, stays on Castaways! This trip departs from, and returns to, our Hanoi Hostel.

  • Hue Hostel

    Backpacking means getting in touch with the real Vietnam. Hue Hostel offers you the chance to see the former Imperial Capital. The city has its own incredible lifestyle and history unmatched anywhere else in the country, dating back to the days of Emperors. The hostel is centrally located so you can explore the many sights that Hue has to offer, such as the Imperial Citadel, an abandoned waterpark, cooking classes and dragon boat rides along the Perfume River. If you’re a foodie, Hue is unmissable, showcasing “Royal Food” from a bygone era.

  • Hoi An Hostel

    The Hoi An Hostel is located between the historical UNESCO town of Hoi An and some awesome beaches. Opened in January 2017, this is our first purpose built hostel equipped with stylishly chic dorms and private rooms, a stunning pool, deck area overlooking lush rice paddies and a large alfresco style bar and restaurant. Hoi An offers a huge range of tours and experiences, just ask at the hostel reception when you arrive.

  • Ninhvana Backpacker Resort

    Ninhvana is our brand new, all-inclusive backpacker resort on a private beach in beautiful Ninh Van Bay, near Nha Trang city. The “pay once” policy means you won't have to reach into your pocket again during your stay. What's included – accommodation, transfers from Nha Trang, ALL meals, ALL drinks, massages, stand up paddle boarding, yoga classes, guided treks, an outdoor cinema, even your laundry and much much more! Ninhvana is the perfect spot to really treat yourself in Vietnam. Couple this with our awesome hostel nightlife, and you can’t really go wrong.

  • Dalat

    Lonely Planet says Dalat is “Vietnam's alter-ago”. Here, the weather is a little cooler and the city tends more towards the French - think villas, eiffel tower souvenirs, horse-drawn carriages and fields of strawberries.

    Ask our booking staff to recommend a hostel in Dalat.

  • Mui Ne

    Welcome to coastal Vietnam. Mui Ne is an upmarket beach strip in the south, offering a big kite surfing culture, awesome restaurants and a resort town vibe. Think sand dunes and surf.

    Ask our booking staff to recommend a hostel in Mui Ne.

  • Ho Chi Minh City: Drop off/pick up only

    Ask our booking staff to recommend a hostel in Ho Chi Minh City.
