Solid backpacker place - great place for chilling
What we say:
Hai Yen has basic bungalows and is truly a backpacker haven being very intimate -- in other words a good place to meet people. It's also cheap, helping lighten the load on the wallet. A selection of rates are available, and you can choose from fan and air-con, single or double -- the rooms don't have hot water. The bungalow interiors are as you would expect for what you pay -- functional. The hotel is situated at the northern end of the beach and the frontage down here is deserted compared to the kite surfing clutter down the coast. Overlooking the ocean is a concrete terrace with parasols and deckchairs, a fantastic place to read a book or sip an evening drink, although it's a shame about the ugly wire fence just in front. Free Internet is provided, and the main strip of restaurants and bars is a five minute drive along the beach road.

Best budget option in Mui Ne
I moved here after a horrible experiment with the violent owners of the bedbug infested Hiep Hoa Resort and could not have been happier with the change! A hotel with a pool is definitely key in Mui Ne as it gets really windy and he ocean is full of kite surfers. The hotel is located in the backpacker center, which is about 20 minutes from the busy Russian Center (city center) of Mui Ne so there are a lot of great restaurants nearby. For $20 my room had an ocean view, AC, cable tv and was clean and comfortable.

Great pool, rooms ok
We stayed here for a couple of nights and really enjoyed it. The rooms are nothing special and the shower in ours hardly worked. That being said, they were kept clean and more than adequate. The pool is really nice with lounges to sit on. There is a restaurant attached which sells good food at cheap prices. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay. Paid $20 per night for private hot water bathroom with air con.

We stayed here for three nights in November 2007. Rooms were spotless and new. We had two double beds, fan and private shower for US$8. And we were a stone's throw from the water which was nice. The restaurant was great (cheap Beer Saigon) and the staff and owners were so sweet. The owner even scolded a xe om driver for overcharging us. I would definitely stay at Hai Yen again.
