Photo of Phong Le Villa Hostel
Backpackers will feel close enough to the action but also get a slice of Hoi An island life in this pocket.

Compared to some of the lacklustre hostels and dorms we saw, Phong Le has a more civilised approach, where beds (not bunks) aren’t crammed in. The four-bed dorm is of a decent size, while the five-bed dorms have oodles of space. We’d actually prefer the latter. Guests get a backpack-sized lockers, air-con as well as fan, ensuite shared bathroom and WiFi, all in a clean modern building. Beds have individual reading lights and electrical outlet. The room rate also includes breakfast and one free drink. Should you need your own space, there are private rooms as well.

Phong Le Villa has set up a great social space to hang out in their front-of-house pavilion that acts as their lobby/bar/chill out area. There’s chairs, tables, picnic tables, bean bags, hammocks: clearly they really want you to hangout, which you can do after a tour or before one of their pub crawls.

Phong Le Villa is located on the river, on the north side of An Hoi Islet near the western tip. A taxi will be able to take you directly there, Thoai Ngoc Hau Street is accessible to cars. It’s just west of the 18 Thang 8 Street bridge.
