Vietnam Backpacker Hostels

It was back in 2004 that two Australian friends living in Hanoi decided to convert a former Diplomat's house into Vietnam's first and only backpacker-style hostel. Since then, the chain has expanded across major destinations in the country, including:

Hanoi, Hue, Hoi An, Nha Trang, Mui Ne, Ho Chi Minh, Cat Ba National Park and the northern rural countryside.

On Hostelz.com you can find every single property of VBH.

Let's hear what the VBH team has to say:

"The idea was simple, "Let’s make a place where we’d want to stay". So the hostel is kept laidback, safe, clean and social."

Let's take a look at the perks of staying at one of these hostels:

  • Daily Happy Hour
  • Nightly drink specials for nearby bars & restaurants
  • Traveller-designed multi-day trips
  • Opportunities to work at the hostel
  • Free breakfast

Other perks such as a swimming pool, onsite bar and bicycle hire are available at selected hostels.

Who stays at Vietnam Backpacker Hostels?

The question here really should be who doesn't stay at VBH.

Honestly, we would find it difficult to answer that question, too! See for yourself...

"At VBH, our hostels range in size and style: from the buzzing bar scene at Downtown; the laidback, chilled out atmosphere of The Original's rooftop bar and Hue Hostel's sports bar, the open, airy common spaces and pool bar and terrace in Hoi An; to our secluded, beachside action-packed paradise in Ninhvana; to views to last a lifetime in Saigon. You're guaranteed to always feel at home at any of our locations."

From backpackers and female solo travellers, to party animals, cute couples and the odd older traveller - you're bound to meet every type here.

Female only dorms, mixed dorms and double privates are always on offer at these hostels.
