TOP 6 BEST HOSTELS IN DA NANG - Youth Hostel danang
 
 
Hello guys and girls!! How is your trip going?
Today I'll make a list of the 6 best hostels in Da Nang, so, if you are travelling from south or north coming to Danang, I hope it will help you not to make mistakes!!! ahahaha
 
In Danang infact, apparently opening a hostel has become a trend. Hostels are opening quite every where: considering that we opened in January 2016 and there were only 4 hostels in Danang!!
I'm from Italy and I feel really lucky because in my life I travelled a lot, often enjoying hostels, before I opened Barney's. But almost of these new hostels have been opened only because Vietnamese people think they will easily get money from that, but they totally don't know anything about travellers and backpackers. They don't know what travelling means and they don't know what you really need guys! 
It's quite sad I know, but it often happens in Vietnam: as soon as a business works ( and they don't understand that it works because who manages it is making a good job ) they start to copy everything, also if until the day before they didn't know anything about it! 
Considering this, there are still 2-3 nice places in Danang managed by Vietnamese owners which you could contemplate. 
This is the reason guys because coming in Danang you should be careful booking your hostel. Usually guests spend 2-3 nights in town so booking the wrong place will mean losing time but most important it means that you'll not have good memories about Danang, which is an amazing city and needs to be pushed up!!!
 
1) BARNEY'S DANANG BACKPACKERS HOSTEL
 
 
That's obvious: we are the best hostel in Danang!! ahahhaha
Since we opened, people from all over the world love Barney's. In Barney's Hostel in Da Nang each detail is studied to make your stay unforgettable.
It has been designed following the "How I Met Your Mother" theme, the famous american tv series, and the result is incredible!
At the ground floor there's a cozy and conditioned common area where you can eat a meal from the simple and delicious food menu or order a drink from the bar!! 
A smiling and helpful staff will bring you to your room, where you will be surprised about the beauty of the hostel: luxury bathrooms, huge beds, A/C, unique atmosphere....
Anything you'll need you'll find easily with us: bike for rent, bicycle, tours, bus tickets and many others services!
More than 500 guests reviewed us with an impressive 9.5/10 average score!!
We obviously are not perfect but we make a good job and you guys usually appreciate it!!
 
2) 1812 Boutique Hostel in Da Nang
 
 
 
It is usually the first option we suggest when Barney's Hostel is fully booked already!
It's a nice and clean place which offers different kind of accomodation, has a nice chill area and is located on the way to the beach which is 5 minutes walking distance.
The Vietnamese owner is a girl who speaks good English. They have showers located at the ground floor which is sometime not really appreciated but I personally like the concept of the hostel.
The hostel is in a quiet street but really close to many restaurants! 
So if we are fully booked have a look at this place!!! 
 
3) Memory Hostel Da Nang 
 
 
In my personal opinion it isn't really a hostel. It is really appreciated by asian travellers because it's more a hotel than a hostel, but comparing the hotel's rates obviously it's cheaper!
You can call it hostel just because it has dorms, but it is the only one reason and I was surprised when I've been there and I saw that they don't even have any common area.....whaaat?!
Who usually goes to hostels is looking for a nice shared atmosphere and to meet new friends, or simply drink something with new people; but without any common space how can people know each other?
Asian guests, in particular Chinese, often appreciate it because it's a sort of first step: I mean "I'm going in a hostel but I still have my privacy and I don't need to speak with anyone if I don't want to"...
Anyway, it's well designed, quite clean but it has really small spaces.
Location is really good, close to the Dragon Bridge.
 
4) Funtastic Hostel Danang
 
 
This hostel is the oldest in town. It's a classic hostel, easy, not a particular design or comfort. It's the classic hostel which offers you a bed for a good price.
Staff is more a hotel staff than the one you should find in a hostel: I mean, more receptionst than people who love to share experiences or give you good tips!!
It offers a free shuttle service to Hoi An in the morning ( apparently not every morning but because they say that, someone complains..) 
They organize some activities and they have a night club at the basement floor.
It has a good visibility on internet because as I said it is the oldest in town but for my personally opinion you can find better options!!
Ah forgot!!.....it is close to the beach, so if you are coming to Danang only for the beach it could be a good option. 
 
5) Nest Hostel
 
 
It's a new family hostel in Danang. It opened just a couple of months ago and they are making a good job!! The couple who runs the place is really nice and helpful also if their English is quite bad.
Same problem of Memory Hostel : they have a common area but toooo small for the hostel!! It would have been a good idea to make a couple of rooms less and design a common area, especially because during the rainy season you need it!!
A Big and nice rooftop ( without any particular view ), clean and well decorated hostel.
Only one note: the location is totally far from everything. Far from the airport, far from the center, far from the dragon Bridge, far from the beach........
 
6) Meraki Villa Hostel
 
 
This hostel is located inside the city. I couldn't feel a really hostel atmosphere there, but the owners are really helpful and nice. They speak a good English and live there so always ready to give you the right tip! 
They also offer opportunity to Workaway and volunteers who want to teach English or help children! 
Cleanliness is ok but nothing in particular to signal!
 
 
So...
As i said starting this article, there's a long list of hostels in danang, almost of these, trust me, are everything but hostel, some of these are simple places which offer beds for cheap rates but considering the average rates in Danang, i cannot give you any reason to book a different hostel by the ones i recommended you!!
WAIT WAIT.......
A special note guys for DANANG BACKPACKERS HOSTEL.
In 1 year I received many guests who spent 1 night there and ran away!! They have an amazing visibility on internet and the name is seductive but...only the name!
I've been there and I really don't know how they can have such a high rating. It's dirty and stinky. You could share your room with 36 PEOPLE ( whaaaat?? 36?! yes!!), someone riviewing them complained about rats and fleas. I don't know if it's true or not but, there must be a reason...
Anyway, everytime someone complains they answer: " you are a competitor, stop to say falsity" ( but is it possible that many competitors go there?! ahahah ).
Personally I will never recommend it to a friend but if you want to try this experience, they offer you a beer for free every day!!!! Is it seriously enough for you?! ahahaha
 
 
 
 
Guys, Girls.....I hope you will find my suggestions helpful. I obviously run my hostel and I'm really proud of it, so I would like all of you to come here with us, but all these considerations are honest and based on my personal experience in Danang.
I really wish you a great time in an amazing hostel in this beautiful city, and if you'll stay in another hostel, you'll be always welcome to come to Barney's and enjoy it with us!!!
