It’s easy to forgive Paddy’s Hostel’s out of town location because they have lots of flashy extras at backpacker prices.

If the large pool and hangout Irish pub on the ground floor doesn’t entice you, then perhaps the tidy and clean rooms will. When we visited in 2016, the recently refurbished hostel sported air-con dorms and private rooms that are more comfortable and cool than the majority of Hoi An hostels in town.

The shared rooms are very civilised and spacious -- there are no bunks and the beds aren’t crammed in. Double beds are also available in the dorms, which sport some cool touches like exposed brick walls, individual reading light, electric outlet and storage, and an ensuite bathroom with shower and another separate shower room. Along with the extra shared toilets and showers in the hallway, no need to worry about long waits for the facilities. All looked clean.

Private bathrooms are equally fresh and clean: white walls, white linens, air-con, WiFi, big bathroom with modern fixtures and windows with thick curtains.

There’s plenty of space to hang out downstairs, whether guests want to quietly catch up on emails or to meet others. The ground floor pub has a billiard table, indoor and outdoor seating, picnic tables, pavilions and sun beds around the pool to laze around. Breakfast and five-hour bicycle rental is included in the room rate, sweetening the already good deal and making it easier to get on with the day.

Paddy’s Hostel is located three kilometres from the old town and less than a kilometre from Cua Dai Beach, just before the bridge. While Cua Dai Beach main hub is severely eroded, journey up the coast towards An Bang and you’ll find lots of undeveloped white sand to lie down on. An Bang itself is only four kilometres via the road along the coast.
