Decent Hostel. Friendly staff. Nice rooms, they have dorm just 6$ for the larger bed and breakfast. The staff always smiles. The hostel offers excursions to the emperor's tombs and the pagoda in the surrounding of Hue. Verdict: The "Why Not?" Hostel is a clear recommendation!

Stayed there for two nights, the room was amazing and at a really great price. They included a breakfast that was delicious and filling. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The bar was a lot of fun to!

I walked in off the nightbus at 7am not having booked and was made very welcome and shown straight to my dorm. The beds are comfy with curtains and the shower is nice and hot, just what I needed after a night spent on a bus. Downstairs there is a great bar immitating a Westetn Saloon and playing country music...

Liked it here a lot! Food was great! Excellent staff, convenient location (close to the city centre and the citadel), and nice comfortable beds and rooms! We rented some motor bikes for the day at a very reasonable rate. However we were given the bikes with pretty much bone dry empty tanks.

Went out for dinner on my own and while browsing tripadvisor I came to this restaurant. Was warmly welcomed by two ladies and their menu had some really interesting food on it. Ended up ordering a chicken with bacon pizza and a fruit juice. All were very good and the fruits were really fresh. While waiting for your food the...
