Photo of Thien Phu Hostel
It would be a way for travellers to stay close to the action (the action being Easy Tiger’s popular Jungle Bar) while saving a few dollars. The central location also means you are a hop to a number of restaurants and the boat landing.

Thien Phu Hostel had just recently opened when we visited in January 2016, which would explain the completely empty ground floor yet to be filled with anything. The dorms house two rather rickety looking metal bunks with four beds. The rooms are unfortunately windowless though the ensuite shared hot water bathroom was of course brand new when we saw it. Rooms come with air-con and WiFi. Add US$1 for breakfast. Thien Phu doesn’t have much charm but it is cheap. If you’re in need of charm and cheer, just hop across the road to the pub.
