A social getaway
Phong Nha Town T: (052) 367 7844
This refurbed old hotel in the heart of town, right opposite the harbour departure point for the Phong Nha cave tours is now a brilliant 52-bed backpacker joint.
It houses a series of four-bed backpacker dorms (each with feline names -- we saw cougar). The dorm rooms are well laid out, with large (almost double) bunks. Communal areas include a pool, alongside the Jungle Bar, which serves a mean burger and pretty happy happy hours making it a great place to meet other backpackers.
