Most of the accommodation is in Dong Hoi proper, clustered within a few city blocks of one another. For those looking for more of a seabreeze than a breeze of traffic, Nhat Le beach, four kilometres north of town, would be the preferred option.

Dong Hoi

Accommodation in town is clustered within a few city blocks around Nguyen Du (the road along the Nhat Le River), north of Tran Hung Dao bridge.

Nam Long
Backpacker - Under US$10
22 Ho Xuan Huong, Dong Hoi
T: (052) 3821 851

Though Nam Long Hotel is older than sister property Nam Long Plus, it is just as spic and span, friendly and well run. Frugal backpackers will be just as happy here, while saving a couple of dollars. In fact, perhaps Nam Long Plus will be too flashpacker for some who would prefer the livelier atmosphere here. We’d give rooms on the first floor a skip, as they don’t have windows and are...

Nam Long Plus
Backpacker - Under US$10
28A Phan Chu Trinh, Dong Hoi
T: (052) 3826 926

It wouldn’t be a stretch to declare this one of the best budget hotels we’ve stayed at in Vietnam. Backpackers will feel like they are in the lap of luxury. Clean dorms and rooms have all the well thought out little extras at a price that is a steal. On top of all that, a lovely and caring family runs this joint. Those on a tight budget will love their clean and spacious dorm room with six... Read our full review of Nam Long Plus.

Muong Thanh Luxury Nhat Le Hotel
Toprange - US$50 to 100
121 Truong Phap Street, Hai Thanh Ward, Dong Hoi
T: (052) 3779 888

Muong Thanh Luxury Nhat Le isn’t normally the type of hotel we would feature but it has a few things going for it relative to what else is on offer in town. If you require comfort and more frills in your accommodation, this is currently Dong Hoi’s best upscale offering. Opened in 2015, the hotel, part of a nationwide chain, is located at the northern edge of the town centre, across the road... Read our full review of Muong Thanh Luxury Nhat Le Hotel.

Buffalo Pub Hostel
Backpacker - Under US$10
4 Nguyen Du, Dong Hoi
T: (052) 381 5599

Pub downstairs, hostel upstairs – you know what you are getting into as soon as you step into the bar which has the obligatory homage to Bob Marley, billiard table and hangout spots. Buffalo Pub Hostel is a social place and the forgettable and small dorm rooms are almost an afterthought. The bunks crammed in are solid wood and you do get WiFi and air-con. There are also private rooms, also... Read our full review of Buffalo Pub Hostel.

Nhat Le Beach

You can find a couple of chilled out beachside budget spots to stay at Nhat Le; and, with some time on your hands, you’ll probably find yourself staying longer than you planned.

Beachside Backpackers
Backpacker - Under US$10
Truong Phap St, Quang Phu village, Dong Hoi (4 km north of centre)
T: (091) 8921 015

Located directly on Nhat Le Beach, less than four kilometres north of Dong Hoi city centre, Beachside Backpackers is exactly as advertised: beachside + backpackers. We visited during the off-season (November to March) so our photo really does not do the accommodation justice but travellers can expect a great beach hangout spot and backpacker haven: tables and chairs just metres from the ocean,...

Ocean View Homestay
Backpacker - Under US$10
Truong Phap St, Quang Phu village, Dong Hoi (4 km north of centre)
T: (052) 3810 686

Just 100 metres from Nhat Le Beach and four kilometres north of the town centre along the coast, Ocean View Homestay is a mini getaway for those who want some water, sand and friendly, welcoming service. The owner, who speaks excellent English, is very kind. With the help of a friendly dog, she goes out of her way to ensure guests have a comfortable stay. The private rooms are clean and cosy,...
