Amy 2 Hostel

Smart, clean downs in a sleepy locale

More on Hue

Hue is awash in affordable hostel dorms, but Amy 2 Hostel is our pick of the bunch—primarily due to their sparkling dorms, friendly staff, super quiet yet central location and convivial bar cafe area—this is an all-round winner.

Any 2 (the original is over on Tran Van Cao near Hung Vuong) is set on a quiet, but reasonably well lit alley running off Vo Thi Sau. This puts you within spitting distance of the heart of Hue’s tourist district, with Bar Street a mere five minute walk (ten minute stumble) away, and plenty of tourist–focussed restaurants and travel agencies literally just around the corner. Despite the central location, because it is set down the alley, the locale is quiet and, save a snoring dorm mate, you’ll sleep well.

Amy 2 Hostel offers female–only and mixed dorms along with private rooms all spread across three floors. We were not able to see any private rooms, but the dorm was modern and well fitted out and extremely clean. Bunks are metal framed, with medium–sized lockers for each, privacy curtains, light, towel and linen. Each dorm has its own bathroom, meaning if business is slow, you’ve scored a private room for just a few bucks.

The ground floor spills out into a cafe cum bar area with plenty of bench seating and lounges and would be a good spot for single travellers to meet up with others. Staff were friendly and professional, happy to show us through.

This isn’t a party hostel—if that is more your thing look into one of the hostels on Pham Ngu Lao—Hue Backpackers Hostel remains a perennial favourite for the beer and bonding scene. We far preferred here for the lower key sleepy vibe. If you’d prefer a private room in a bigger property, Poetic Hue Hotel is just around the corner and is excellent value.
