Mui Ne Backpacker Village is a flashpacker hostel at a backpacker price, and it lives up to its name as they have created an entire village for all a backpacker needs.

It instantly reminded us of Melrose Place (a 1990s TV soap opera reference which, yes, dates us) but it does look more like an LA apartment courtyard complex (complete with the central pool) than a hostel.

The place is a constant hive of activity, with backpackers coming, going, lounging around the pool or crowding the bar though when we visited, it was eerily quiet as almost everyone was glued to their phones.

The air-con four-bed or six-bed dorms are no-nonsense and well thought out. The beds are a concrete and tile frame (not bunks), each bed nook has its own shelf, electric outlet and locker. The shared bathroom for the four-bed dorm is ensuite. They also have private rooms, perhaps worth it if you’re a travelling pair. A few dollars more per person and you have a spartan but functional room with air-con, hot water shower and the added frills of a TV and mini patio.

The joint is a well-oiled backpacker machine: bus and train tickets, sand dune tour for 70,000 dong, breakfast for 35,000 dong, day storage room for backpacks and even a drying area for clothes. It’s all very tidy and organised. There’s no direct beach or ocean access, and we’re still scratching our head at the sight of 30 people Church-silent intensely playing with their phones, but the hostel is good value and an overall more welcoming atmosphere than Mui Ne Hills Budget Hotel.
