      This is THE place to stay in Vung Tau. Not that the town has many options for hostels to begin with, but contrary to my expectations, this one turned out to be a rather good hostel by all standards. The staff are helpful and energetic. You can rent out bikes from these guys and there is kitchen if you want to use it. The rooms are nice and clean. There were 3 bunk beds in my room and it was well laid out so that it never felt stuffed. The lockers helped as well to keep the luggage neatly stowed away. The place itself attracts a lot of travellers of all kinds. Definitely the place to be when you go to Vung Tau.

You can either walk or rent a bicycle to explore around. They are also very generous with tips where to go. Keep up with the good work.

      everything you need is there! all facilities that are mentioned in the description are fully available, but what this app can't show is the kindness of the owners. they are simply amazing, they want to know about your trips, always willing to help, we even made and nice dinner bbq together, and they went with us to the market to buy all the stuff we needed. you can always rely on them. being that they are starting their business, place be kind and not very demanding, cause till now it had preserved the real essence of the word HOSTEL.

      The location and staff were top notch. In addition to that, the people you tend to meet here are very friendly and it's just plain beautiful. However, a couple of travelers I met shared the same complaint as there were too many mosquitoes around the hostel. But besides that it's a lovely place.
