This hostel is like an institution in Tam Coc and it's definitely worth the price for the great location, super friendly staff, comfortable beds and really cosy outside area. They even have a place where guests can sleep/relax before checking in, which is SUPER useful since many people arriving in Tam Coc come on sleeper buses that arrive super early in the morning. I was so thankful for having a place to sleep (for free, even) when I arrived at 4.30 in the morning! The food they sell there is also good and not terribly overpriced, even though you can see it's definitely a bit of tourist prices. The only thing that let me down a bit was the bathroom. It was kind of old fashioned and not super clean. Plus the water heater was so small that you could barely get a full shower with hot water and it took 15 minutes until it heated up again so the next person could have a shower.

Very, very social. Lovely and helpful staff! Great location and the hostel is clean. Nothing really, but if anything, I guess I personally prefer when a big dorm has the shower and toilet separated but it was a big and clean bathroom so can’t really complain after all.

The beds were very comfy & cozy & felt very private. There is a large social area with a pool & restaurant which was such a nice place to hangout. Nice view of the lake & close to many many activities you would want to do in the area. The staff is friendly & helpful in helping to rent scooters, bikes, or organize taxi pick up.

Beds were so comfy!! Good sized rooms too and the social area at the hostel was great. Created a nice atmosphere. Good location and lots of tours etc available to book at reception. Bathroom was outside the room and was a little cold at times. Showers could have been a little cleaner but the toilets etc were cleaned regularly.

This spot is a TikTok gem - super social, in such a great location, beautiful views! We hired motorbikes from reception & had so much fun with them. The karaoke buses were lots of fun also. Stayed in a 6 dorm, beds were spacious and comfy. Big shout out to Sarah she was just fantastic and such a hard worker! Lots of good advice about what to do. We miss her already! Shower took ages to warm up, wait 15-20 between use. Lots of construction while we were there

The location is very good, right next to the tam coc river. The bar inside the hostel is beautiful, and you can met a lot of people there. The staff is good. The room is very little, and didn't had hot water.
