According to other reviews for Cat Ba Hostels this was my best choice”

The place is very basic, 3 bunk beds, 3 electric plugs, but only for the lower beds, a hatrack a broken fan and an AC (without remove control), which was not much cooling and the bathroom was filthy. But the bedsheets and the towel were clean (and even smelled nice) and at least there were no bedbugs! The staff was unfriendly, disinterested and only self concerned (maybe if you book a tour then they will be more open) They meanwhile have WiFi in the rooms other than stated on the Agoda page. It is located on a main street, so its very loud until late and the day starts outside at 5:30 - 6 am... Bring your earplugs!

The reviews led me to believe that this would be really good, but our stay was average. Comfortable room, poor AC. Didn't meet Mr Zoom though, met an unnamed man who showed me my room but didn't speak a word to me. Tried to stay another night and the woman there took about 5 minutes before saying to me no.

I ended up staying 6 days at Mr Zoom's. The private room with bathroom for $5 was one of the best deals I got in Vietnam. If you're looking for a budget place, in great location, and you're not too picky, this is ideal for you. By the way, the best Pho Bo I had in Vietnam was just a few steps downhill from Mr Zoom. Don't miss it!
