Friendly hostel, central location
Tribee is a refreshingly friendly spot with a chilled out vibe, without sacrificing on cleanliness.
It also has a location in the heart of the backpacker street Ba Trieu, close to the old town.
The air-con dorm rooms are simply converted hotel rooms, which means it fits just three beds (not bunks), has windows and the shared wetroom-style bathroom is ensuite. The mattress looks a bit thin, but each bed gets a plug and there are hooks on the wall for drying your towel (towel not included). An enormous locker lies underneath each, large enough for your backpack and then some. The dorm we saw smelled strongly of feet, but that’s just the luck of the draw with your dorm mates because all shoes are left at the front entrance. Routers placed throughout the hallway means there’s WiFi for whatever dorm you’re in.
The private rooms are less stellar value. They are functional charmless tile boxes with air-con, a bed, bedside table and plug, box TV, a small window and a fridge. Maybe that’s all a hardcore backpacker needs in their private room.
The rate includes breakfast and there’s a good feeling in the small, colourful lobby with smiley staff. Suggested itineraries are posted on the wall as well as all the usual bus and tour bookings available. Tribee is one of the better hostels in town, a place where there are very few recommendable ones.
