There are dorms and private rooms which are all different and it does get confusing determining which one to book and finding a match for your specific dates. But after that initial stress, life is a beach and full of B’s as another Bai Xep beachfront backpacker budget basecamp.

There are two types of dorms: fan cooled in a rustic bamboo hut or superior air-con dorms. The fan dorms have wooden bunks and mosquito net. The superior dorms are a definite upgrade as there is air-con, the building faces the ocean and if you are lucky to snag the lower bunk, it has a much wider mattress than the top one. Lockers are available and linens and a towel is provided.

There are four private rooms on the beach. Three are rustic affairs of bamboo and thatch, two of them have ensuite bathroom. The most comfortable is the beach view bungalow which boasts solid walls, air-con, king size bed, private bathroom and veranda.

Solid rooms.

As for the atmosphere, it’s the typical budget beach haunt with loungey areas, a menu of backpacker fare and standard cocktails, bar, barbecues and other events depending on the crowd and the mood. If you want to get away from the crowds, head to their other property Life’s a Beach Backpackers 3 km down the coast. It’s the only accommodation on that beach—expect more basic, spread out dorms and rooms on a wilder piece of land.
