  1. Hey guys, such a lovely post! I loved the Buddhist style hotel, definitely on my check list now!
    I have a question for you actually, where from do you take the pictures you use? Are they your own or taken with agreement from booking.com/ hostelworld ? Thanks in advance, feel free to respond to my email if you don’t want to make it public.

  2. Pingback: 7 AWESOME THINGS TO DO IN HUE, VIETNAM - Hue Golden Star Hotel

  3. Its a good information about hostels and it’s really helpful for travelers. Vietnam is one of the best places one could make their travels plans for. You can enjoy delicious street food in the old quarter to the beautiful architecture throughout the country.

  4. Hi Guys,

    I would like to make a correction if possible. Dorm beds at Mui Ne Backpacker Village start at $4/night during low season and $5/night during high season. Great value!!!

  5. Super chouette article ! Les photos sont subimes avec une très bonne qualité d’image ! On apprend beaucoup de chose plus qu’utile pour un séjour au Vietnam avec des “bons plans” à ne pas oublier !
    Merci beaucoup pour ce partage et toutes ses informations précieuses !

  6. Thank you guys for the info.i will be traveling alone to Vietnam on August 8 2016 staying in district 1 area I never been to Vietnam before so I need info on how to get around and what to do there?:)

  7. Thank you for this informative post ! Will travel to Vietnam on November and we were planning on taking backpacker’s accomodation , not booking on a hotel .
    Will check on the named list above .

  8. This is an extensive list, with a price bet $ 5-10, the hostels are very affordable. The photos you shared are inviting too. Will revert back to this list when I visit Vietnam soon

  9. I am happy to see Vietnam emerge as a travel destination considering the fact that it is overshadowed by some of the more popular travel destinations. Are the prices in US Dollars? And, would you guys be interested in tying up with me here in India?

  10. I believe these are the cheapest amongst the hostels around but all of them looks so clean, beautiful and serene i thought yiu were just kidding. This is a much needed list for travellers!

  11. So many hotels you’ve reviewed! It’s so nice to compare a lot of different hotels. This mist be helpful for people that would like to stay over ther.le. I have never been there before but surely will check this post if I need a hotel 🙂

  12. Thank you for this post. I am planning to travel to Vietnam later this year and I really needed a list like this. I will definitely refer this post to decide on my accommodations there

  13. Wow! Some of the hostels looks more of a hotel rather than a hostel which is both amazing and scary. Amazing since traveling on a budget doesn’t mean sacrificing a comfortable sleep at night. Meanwhile, it’s scary since you may think that you’re paying less but you end up paying more. I do think that most hostels these days have a friendly atmosphere, so aside from what you’ve mentioned, what else makes See You at Lily’s hostel be included at the best hostels in Vietnam?

  14. Hi Two Monkeys Travel Group! I’ve been following your site ever since and thank you again for sharing this post. I’ll definitely save this page for my future trip in Vietnam! More power to your group!

  15. Bookmarked! This is an awesome list that you’ve put together. I have not been to Vietnam but am planning to visit real soon. I started doing my research a couple of weeks ago so all of these will be very helpful. I always stay in a hotel whenever I travel but seeing The Common Room Project – I might just want to experience hostels in one of my future trips.

  16. Thank you for sharing this. This list consists of nice hostels with cheaper rates. Will definitely take this in mind when I plan to go to vietnam

  17. This post is such a great help. Youve even included the price and what the place ia famous for. I will bookmark this as my friend and i have plans of visiting Vietnam soon. Thanks!

  18. I’ve never been to Vietnam! Really useful advice for anyone looking to travel there. The Riverside Palace Hostel looks so lovely – can’t believe the price! Like the sound of the curtains round beds at the Go Sapa Hostel. The ones with the beach views all look amazing for scenery. (Lucy/R is for Hoppit)

  19. The garden at Homestay Hostel Hoi An looks stunning. It seems the location is very good too, close to a temple and a public beach. Lovely selection of hostels.

  20. The prices made my mouth drop to the floor! And how much is my rent?? haha The pictures are amazing!! loved it! xoxo

  21. Oh wow what some absolutely amazing looking hotels – I love the look of the VIP area at: Hoi An Backpackers Hostel absolutely beautiful. x

  22. Oh wow – what a great list of hostels – my daughter and her boyfriend want to travel, I will pass list on. Kaz x

  23. I’d never considered staying in hostels before and didn’t realise it was so cheap. It might be the way to go if I ever find myself in that part of the world! 🙂

  24. This could be a very useful list for someone travelling to Vietnam and save time trying to find good accommodation.

  25. Good guide of hostels for Vietnam. It is an amazingly cheap place to travel. Accommodation is very reasonable. (as is everything else!)

  34. I was with my college friends celebrating the victory of our department during our University Intramurals. We all went at this local bar to celebrate. I happen to chance upon a guy seated in the bar and then we were introduced by the bartender.

    To make the long story short, I ended up having one of the most interesting conversations in my life with an utter stranger who was in town for a business engagement (if I recall correctly, it was with a local mall).

    I asked him what was his most favorite country that he visited. I was thinking he might have answered Italy, France or anywhere in Europe but he answered: “Vietnam, because not everybody goes there and everything’s almost cheap there.”

    I couldn’t forget that answer. And that’s the reason why I want to visit Vietnam, to see for myself if it’s really cheap there since I’m a proud cheapskate. Haha.

    If given the luck I will win, I plan to travel there by December 2015. I have a full-time day job and December means long holidays (no need for VLs! Hopefully). ☺

    I haven’t been to Vietnam or even outside the Philippines for that matter and I hope that’s enough reason for you to pick me! Hihihi.

    What I like most about the Two Monkeys Travel Forum is the sense of connectedness with fellow wanderlusters. I rarely join forums or even if I do, I rarely comment.

    But with Two Monkeys Travel Forum, I recently posted an article and I’m so glad to have initiated an online conversation with strangers but all share the same love for travel. The sense of community is just contagious and I eventually got over my fear or shyness of posting (what if nobody will respond?). Thank good I did! That was a first for me.

    Thanks to Two Monkeys Travel Forum for providing a little nook in the online space for us wanderlusters. To connect, discuss, share and meet new people. ☺

  35. Xin Chao TMT!

    Thank you for giving me the chance to be part of this community, looking forward to inspire others about how beautiful life can be.

    1.Why would you like to visit Vietnam? When are you planning to go to Vietnam? Have you been to Vietnam before? Why should we pick you?
    I would really love to visit Vietnam because of its breathtaking views,to try their amazing food and meet the friendly Vietnamese. No, I haven’t been to Vietnam and any other places as a matter of fact I have my passport since 2013 but never got the chance to use it and I think this is the right time to get it stamped ( *wink* ) . I never got the chance to travel local or international but that doesn’t mean that I am not enjoying my life for every breath that I take is the greatest journey of my life. Why should you pick me, well I am a positive person who always look at the brighter side of life and if you choose me you’ll give me the opportunity to create memories for a lifetime and experience travelling for the first time.

    2. What do you like about the Two Monkeys Travel Forum and any suggestions on how we can improve our community?

    What I really like about the Two Monkeys Travel Forum is how it can amazingly inspire others including me, by reading your articles it feels like I already been to that specific place. feels like I already know that place. How we can improve our community? You can have a page in your website where members can upload photos of their most amazing views of their hometown then every week you will choose a photo and feature them in your blog with this members will participate more and be really active on the forum.

    SALAMAT PO. 🙂

  36. Hello Two Monkeys! 🙂

    Please bear with me. I’m not good in writing, I swear.

    1.Why would you like to visit Vietnam?? When are you planning to go to Vietnam? Have you been to Vietnam before? Why should we pick you?

    We are all aware that Vietnam is known for the North Face bags. And to be honest, that is one of my reasons why I chose to visit there. Lame, right? 🙂 But yes, I have been to Vietnam; on June 2014, with my sisters and my two favorite travel buddies. We also chose Vietnam as our entry point for our SEA trip and Bangkok in the last leg. We did the half day Cu Chi Tunnels tour. I know that this is a must when you go to Ho Chi Minh (Saigon). I can say that was a very educational experience. We were also able to spend a day in Mekong Delta. The cruise was amazing; the guides we had were so nice and I think, this is a great way to experience Vietnam.

    So, why would I like to revisit Vietnam? I have been following several travel blogs and there’s one entry that caught my attention. This blogger experienced snow in Sapa, Vietnam, when he arrived there middle of December 2013. My reaction was: what?!?!?! Like seriously?! Snow in Vietnam?! I immediately read it; then, I told myself that this is another destination that should be ticked off my bucket list and I should be there this December, to also experience snow.

    However, my reason of revisiting Vietnam has become deeper when I learned about MyTEFL through the Two Monkeys Travel Forum. Yes, I am planning to take the 120 hour course this September and I am very thankful because of the 40% discount. *grab it while it’s hot!* It is one of my dreams to teach English abroad and Vietnam is actually on top of my list.

    Why should you pick me, then? Well, who doesn’t want a free? Hello! It’s free! Haha! I would love to learn more about Vietnamese culture. I like Vietnamese Pho and would like to try Bun Bo Hue. 🙂 But whether to be picked or not, I am still willing to share every details of our Vietnam trip. I will still pursue my dream to teach English there. And, I won’t let anything stop me from fulfilling that dream.

    Two Monkeys Travel Forum – YAABH!

    Yes, you are a big help! It’s true. Here, every member can share their travel experiences, in and out of the Philippines. You can also meet fellow travelers who share same passion for travel. You are making sure that every member will learn things about travel that we never could anywhere else. Nevertheless, this community is really comforting.

    What can I suggest? Well, please have more events, parties or get togethers where everyone can participate. I believe it is a great way that we can come close to one another.

    That’s all folks! Thank you for reading. ^^

  37. 1.Why would you like to visit Vietnam?? When are you planning to go to Vietnam? Have you been to Vietnam before? Why should we pick you?

    I have been to Vietnam, in Hanoi specifically because I heard it is one of the most nice places to come to. I’m a budget traveler and I’ve always wanted to visit Vietnam since I heard it’s cheap in there. Last July when I visited Vietnam, it was such a sight. I took a leave from work for 4 days (without pay!) but it didn’t matter because I am fulfilling my dream of travelling the world. I’m taking it one step at a time.

    Why should you pick me? That’s a tough question. For one, it is my birthday last August 6, yes, this one is true – my birthday was 2 days ago. Winning this would make me so happy on my birthday and I’ll consider this a post birthday treat from my fellow monkeys! Hahaha. Second, I really really love to travel. Time is a problem and budget. But budgets I can always make it work. What I really want is to travel and learn new things and share it to everyone. When I came back from my vacation, people asked me how Vietnam is and I shared to them my happy experience learning the Vietnamese culture and of course shopping!

    I remember when I was at the airport, I was so sad and I was crying because I don’t wanna leave Ho Chi Minh and Vietnam anymore!! Too bad I can’t stay long as I have work.

    I told my friend in Vietnam that if ever another opportunity comes, I WILL COME BACK. I hope this is it!! I really really wanna come back to Vietnam and try Hanoi!! Wuhoooo!

    This time, I hope I get inspired to travel independently!!

    I hope I get this chance and I’m willing to write for this blog – either I win this or not. I love to take photos but my camera isn’t the best one 🙁

    So there it is. Hipe I get picked!! *fingers crossed*

    2. What do you like about the Two Monkeys Travel Forum and any suggestions on how we can improve our community.

    What I love about Two Monkeys Travel Forum? First, the suggestions and the photo adventures of our fellow monkeys! Hahaha! They have awesome travel suggestions, itineraries, cheap places to stay in and of course the photos which make you really want to travel A LOT. Second, the people – the monkeys are so nice and welcoming to new monkeys like me. They invite us for travels, get togethers and of course they suggest the best places!! I love it there – whenever I have the urge to travel and don’t know what to do, I can just ask the other monkeys for suggestions and they will give lots and lots of options!! #besttravelforum

    You guys are much better than other travel blogs in Google!!

    How can WE improve this community? Simple. Hope we feature a travel adventure of a fellow monkey to other. A complete and detailed blog of how her travel adventure began and the places he/she visited. That would be an interesting read!!

    That would be all. THANK YOU GUYSSS!!! #TravelMonkeys

  38. Hi, Two Monkeys! ^_^

    This is in response to the awesome group’s Vietnam giveaway trip!

    Questions :
    1.Why would you like to visit Vietnam?? When are you planning to go to Vietnam? Have you been to Vietnam before? Why should we pick you?
    First, of all, I’ve heard so much about Vietnam from bloggers and travelers and how each one has never failed to mention the exotic charm of the country. I’ve seen the photos and I can not argue about their claim. I could have easily gone to this country, if I wanted to, but, the weakness of my travel spirit has always hindered me from leaving the comforts of my routine and the security of my own country.
    After being inspired by Kach through her relentless pursuit of freedom through travels, I’m finally willing to let go of my reservations and take hold of the chance to experience an independent travel, for the first time. I’ve traveled some parts of Japan, but, all with the close assistance of so many willing friends. It was my first time to leave the country and the overwhelming feeling choked me that I wasn’t able to enjoy the places in all their glory. As I look back and stare dreamily at my photos, I could only feel regret at how I didn’t really look and breathe and take all the sceneries in.
    I would like to visit Vietnam, because, I’d love to be able to open myself to the possibility of a “real” travel, the kind which allows me to finally leave my comfort zone, to be independent, to fill me with the heart of the place, to breathe and really feel the spirit of traveling.
    As to why I need to join a contest to visit this country and why you should pick me, well, the Two Monkeys has started really humbly. I believe it’s one of the essences of traveling. To be able to enjoy places, without ripping your pockets. To show and inspire others, as Kach has inspired me, that traveling is not about boasting and being flashy, but, about being responsible and wise to be able to live a sustainable life of traveling. And if that means, I grab every chance I have for a free travel and wake up at 4am to write a 4-paragraph answer to one question, then I happily would. Haha!
    As I’ve never been to Vietnam, I plan to go on my birthday in November. A day that special would make the experience extra-special. It’s another reason why you should pick me. It will be a nice birthday present. ^^

    2. What do you like about the Two Monkeys Travel Forum and any suggestions on how we can improve our community.
    What I like about the Two Monkeys Travel Forum is the positive outlook that has become a culture of the group, which, allows every new member to feel all kinds of possibilities. It makes people aspire for what they think is unattainable. It gives them courage and inspires them to take chances and to take risks.
    I can only suggest that each day, a member is handpicked by the Admins to talk about how traveling makes them a better person or how they think traveling would shape them as an individual. With the number of members the forum has, it’s so easy to get drowned by overwhelming posts of others. Some would just prefer to hide behind these experienced travelers, reading, liking, and staying quiet. I hope each one is given the chance to be heard and “seen”. Each voice counts, anyway. Encouraging others to speak out and “show” themselves could also be one way to give them courage to go out there and experience the world more, to be brave and to take risks and chances.
    Of course, this is merely a suggestion and an opinion. Some may have better ones than mine. I only hope for the forum to get better, and hope that others would speak about this part, too. Their opinions, I’m positive, do count, after all.

      Hi Roxanne. Apologies for the late response, super late response 🙂 🙂 We appreciate you taking time to share your answers with us, though the contest has ended. And we hope that today, you have found the time to go beyond your comfort zone and able to travel (even if not outside the country, that’s totally fine). 🙂 🙂 Glad to know that we inspire people like you and by the way, we now have this “Traveling Monkeys Around the WORLD!” album on Facebook where we feature fellow monkeys…to serve as travel inspirations for the others! Please do check out our FB page. Thank you ❤❤

  39. I’m planning to surprise my boyfriend on his birthday this coming January, this will be our first backpacking trip abroad “together”. Probably this could really help me a lot in choosing a good and affordable place to stay for a memorable trip. ^^
