Hoi An Backpackers Hostel
Hoi An is laid back and has endless charm. The atmosphere is chill and will probably entice you to stay longer than planned. Our Hoi An Hostel is on the cusp of the UNESCO historical old town and just a few minutes walk from the vibrant local market and the picture perfect riverside. We are also a short bike ride away from An Bang Beach (rated in the top ten beaches in the world).
Hoi An is famous for getting tailor made clothing at a very low cost. You will also find funky art galleries, locally made handicrafts and amazing cooking classes where you get to pick the freshest ingredients at the local market or the Tra Que eco-farm. If shopping and cooking aren’t your thing we offer rock climbing, abseiling, kayaking and short trips to MySon (ancient Cham city which is over a thousand years old) as well Standup paddle boarding from An Bang beach and day trips to the beautiful Cham Islands!
Now let’s talk free stuff!! We offer a complimentary breakfast every morning starting at 7am until 10am. We have bicycles for rent for 30,000VND ($1.30) and we’ll give you a map and point out some of our favourite spots! This is a great way to discover the magic of the old quarter, ride through rice paddies, and end up on the Beach for sun and fun. We have nightly events, themed parties and loads of food and drink deals happening every day. Not convinced yet? We have a massive pool and an awesome new deck area overlooking rice paddies. Perfect place to relax with a few afternoon beverages and watch the sunset.
After dark the old quarter is beautifully lit up by locally made lanterns and on full moons all other lights are turned off leaving only an array of colourful lanterns which light up the riverside. You can also make a wish and cast a candle out on the river. Be careful what you wish for!!!
Most of the tourist buses coming from the North or South drop off within 2km of the hostel. A taxi from any of the bus drop offs should cost no more than 50,000VND ($2.50).
The nearest train station is in Da Nang around 30km away. A Taxis to Hoi An will set you back $20-$25US.
Da Nang International Airport is about a 45 minute drive from the centre of Hoi An. Taxis ($20-$25US) are available from the arrivals terminal. A hassle free airport transfer can be arranged by us from as little as $17US for a 4 seat car or $20US for a larger 7 seat people mover. To have us arrange a driver to meet you when you arrive at Da Nang Airport use the contact form to the right to send your flight details.
Be aware: some shuttle and taxi drivers operating from the airport, train and bus stations accept commissions for taking unsuspecting travellers to budget hotels that claim to work with us. If the shuttle bus or taxi stops directly outside a hotel that doesn’t have staff in our t-shirts, you have been taken to the wrong address. If you find yourself in this situation decline politely and make your way to another taxi or local travel agent to book another taxi.
Our hostel has a clear sign stating we are Vietnam Backpacker Hostels.
