We have 9 places to stay in and around Qui Nhon.
Accommodation in town is spread along four kilometres of beachfront, which is only divided from the city by a leafy, wide promenade and road. Even for those simply using Qui Nhon as a pit stop, a short, inexpensive taxi ride can deliver you to a more charming location than the bus station – the little bit of extra travel and money is well worth it. If you really don’t care, then the bus station is surrounded by a fortress of cheap local motels. The city receives more visitors on weekends and summer holidays, and prices can jump during that time.
Previously we gave a glowing review to Barbara’s Kiwi Connection. The hostel and restaurant was once the place in Qui Nhon for backpackers. The namesake Barbara has moved on but the current owners still bank on its former reputation. It’s gone downhill. Avoid.
The coast south of Qui Nhon city is dotted with beaches and buzz is growing about Bai Xep, a charming spot 10 km south of the city once solely home to a simple fishing village. Flash-forward and there are now four accommodation options which cover all budgets including two backpacker hubs and a luxury resort. Expect more to be built soon.
Qui Nhon taxis are becoming more familiar with Bai Xep and the entrance to the village off of QL1D is well marked with signage. Cars can only go halfway down the village road. Simply get out and walk to the end and it spits you out onto the beach between Haven, Big Tree Backpackers and Life’s a Beach. Several local homes offer paid parking—note, they can be quite pushy in getting you to choose their place.
