9.3 Excellent
Pros: Good location in central phong nha. Good restaurant choices nearby. They were kind enough to let us check in early (around 0500) for a small fee. The breakfast was nice, particularly the banana pancake. The A/C was slow to cool the room, and the room was not cleaned/bed was not made during the day which was slightly disappointing. Overall a good experience and good location. The staff were lovely and arranged a driver for us to visit the botanic gardens + paradise cave (he waited for us between stops). Would recommend
Cons: Room was not cleaned in the day time. A/C worked, but was slow to cool a room (not too much of a problem)

Very pleasantly surprised

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Cannot imagine there being better accomodation in Phong Nha for the price. Excellent, helpful hosts. Immaculately clean, comfortable and peaceful. Fantastic breakfast included. Enjoyed being five minutes walk from the main street, with a balcony view of rice paddies and beyond. Would recommend Tien's Cosy Homestay without reservation. Wonderful. Thank you!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Big, clean room, bed super comfy! The staff was lovely and helped us where they could. Great breakfast! They offer a cheap scooter rental. The homestay is located 10 minutes by foot from the city center, so you have to walk a little but it’s wonderfully quiet at night.
Cons: Nothing, would come back :)

10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very good price, free bicycles, cheap moto rental, and delicious breakfast. We took a night bus out of town and they allowed us to leave our luggage, use the bicycles, take a shower, and the mother even made us dinner. We stayed at home stays throughout Vietnam and this one was the best.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: * The staff were so unbelievably nice to us. The receptionist picked us up after the sleeper bus and let us check in at 4:30AM, the staff really cared for us, cleaned the room each day and were very welcoming. Not in my 6 months of travelling asia have I seen such service at such rate. * Breakfast was basic yet good. Good portions and good taste. The lady who made it changed the fruits she served Each day, and was just adorable. * The room is just sparkling clean. Comfortable bed, not too soft but not too hard either. Shower is pouring strong with hot water. There's aircon and fan above. * The place has good laundry service and bike/bicycle rental. * Each floor of rooms has this two balconies opposing each other. One overlooks the mountains, and the other rice fields. Really nice view too look. *The location is good, 1 km from the center, and other than the resturants there there's not much else. * After booking a night bus on our last day ,they offered us to take a shower in one of the rooms. One of the best places I stayed in East-Asia. Hotel quality rooms, homestay vibe and hospitality. Definitely recommended!
Cons: Absolutely nothing that I didn't like
9.5 Excellent
Pros: I was looking for a nice quiet hostel just 10 minutes walk from the main street. This home stay did not have a pool table, swimming pool, loud music, a restaurant hammocks or well equip bar. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm, it was the cleanest dorm (or hotel for that matter) that I have stayed in for 7 months travelling. The bed was a propper soft new mattress, the blanket was thick soft white and snugly, and the pillow the same. The quality you expect in a 4 star hotel. Best sleep I had in months. Being off the main street I had the dorm to myself for 2 days (as most people get off the night bus, straight into the main busy backpacker hostels on the main street). Bathroom was spotless, not a single hair found. I had access to two separate balcony's, one with the mountain view, the other overlooking a nice open green field (felt secluded). Tien the owner and her staff are very accommodating. My bed was proactively changed, and bathroom cleaned on the second morning (without me asking), I was still offered breakfast at 10:30am when I slept in and 10:00am is the cut off. I was even told if I like I can hand wash my clothes on the top balcony, and leave them to dry. Even thought they have a laundry service at a cost. They also were very knowledgeable helping with tours, bus tickets, scooter/bike hire etc. This small homestay is not in it for the money, they are genuinely friendly and very helpful. If you want a personal service (but not over the top), and after a quiet, clean and comfortable sleep. This is your homestay. I don't recommend this place for people who want to socialise, party and drink.
Cons: It's not that I did not like this, it was fine with me but I feel I should mention. It mentions on booking.com that a buffet breakfast is provided, I went in the quiet season, and it was not a buffet breakfast. Although I was still satisfied, worth a mention if you decide to book this home stay only for the buffet lol. This had no impact on my stay, as this was the first time I have truly felt at home in months. I wish i could check out with the mattress.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The owner picked us up at the bus station at 5 a.m. and also brought us to the bus at 4 a.m., with which we countinued our journey, and even waited there with us until we were on the bus. And didn‘t even charged us for that! When our A.C. broke he repaired it immediately.

Pros: The pool, our room, the countryside location, the staff, proximity to town, nice food.

7.0 Good
Pros: The swimming pool and the free bikes. The bathrooms are big and very Nice, with stones on the walls
Cons: The people are very kind, nothing to complain about that. BUT they ask you 3 times a day about what you plan to do today and tomorrow. In fact they push to sell tours of the caves, the cheapest starting at 1650000 d per person and per day. Also the airconditionning is not strong enough to cool the room at night.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: We stayed two days there and everything was very good. Sy and his wife are lovely and very helpful to have informations about what to do around. rooms are big, super clean and beautiful. The food at there restaurant is awesome as well. Our best place in Vietnam so far, highly recommended for a stay in Phong Na!

Pros: We had a great stay at Sy’s homestay and would highly recommend staying here. It’s a little bit further out of town but there are bikes available at the property for guests to use and it only took us less than 10 minutes to cycle in along the scenic roads which was quite fun. Huyen was so helpful and accommodating and helped us organise our transfer to and from the airport/train station and our tour of the caves which was amazing! The breakfast in the morning was delicious and everyone we encountered at the homestay were so smiley, friendly and helpful. Such great value too and the pool and views were beautiful. Highly recommend!
Cons: No complaints.

We arrived by nightbus at 4 am and Sy picked us up with her motorbike (which is super nice), when we got to the homestay our room was ready and we could directly go to bed. We absolutely enjoyed our stay here and would love to revisit one day. I higly recommend Sy's homestay.

Pros: This place is the best! The rooms are like 5 star hotel rooms, huge, with huge comfy beds, air conditioning, TV, some with terrace, all absolutely spotlessly clean. The best yet is the POOL, so perfect for just relaxing in and refreshing yourself after a day exploring on one of their well maintained scooters you can rent. And to top it all off there is also a pool table! And cheap beers! So much fun! The staff were also 5 stars, the lovely guy who takes care of reception spoke impeccable English and was so nice and helpful. All the other staff on site too were all so lovely, everyone really took care of us and looked after us from the moment they picked us up from the bus station in town to the moment they dropped us off again at no extra charge! The menu seemed to cater for Westerners only and lacked Vietnamese options, but these guys were so awesome, every time we saw them eating their Vietnamese meal we pointed and asked if we could have the same and they so kindly obliged us every time letting us try their delicious dishes we wouldn't otherwise have had. Oh and did I mention they have two adorable puppies on site all you need for your daily puppy petting needs! :) Don't hesitate, book this place before it gets booked up!

6.8 Good
Pros: The place was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was nice, Zu who worked on reception was very nice and helpful. They also offer free pickup from buses or trains etc.
Cons: The property is located quite far out of Phong nha. You are able to rent motorbikes from them but if not you must get a private car or motorbike driver from the homestay This can become quite expensive and varied from 120-140d each way. There is no grab in the area so this is your only option. There was also no atmosphere while we were there.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice pool, clean rooms, good working air condition and very helpful staff?
7.0 Good
Pros: Nice hotel but not good location. Swimming pool much smaller than it looks like in the pictures but open 24/7.
Cons: Transfer to homestay from Phong Nha for free, transfer back for 100k VND. Breakfast ok but meals for lunch the worst in Vietnam so far. Rented motorbike for 120k VND in bad conditions.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: From our arrival at 3am, the owner picked us up and took us to the property where we checked in with Du and he let us have a much needed rest. Upon waking up and having a fabulous breakfast, Du helped us plan our stay and gave us great recommendations. We booked the Roc Mon tour through him and highly recommend it. The poll was a great escape after days in caves, and the family dinner was spectacular. We're rented scooters as well through them and traveled the town and some caves at our leisure. The location is a little farther out of the city meaning it was quiet at night but a short drive away to the main town. Definitely recommend it.
Cons: Nothing!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Decent pool and you can rent bikes really cheap. They let us check in at 6am for no extra cost which was great after an over night train.

Delicious Vietnamese coffee! The hotel staff very nice and helpful. We were picked up from the bus station. You can rent cheap scooters on the spot, which was a great help :)

Pros: The room I asked with the view on mountain was clean, big and comfortable. Nice location next to the pier.
Cons: Where we arrived the presure on us asking for tours and already our way of leaving (to book with them). It was not really a warm welcoming.

7.0 Good
Pros: The room was pretty nice. It’s next door to the noisiest backpackers hostel in town so I would suggest if you like to party & stay in centre town you go to Tiger Tiger, it’s good
Cons: There was really just one member staff. She was working day & night. She did her very best. She needs a break & some support. I haven’t stayed at any other hotel with so few staff. She sleeps in reception. The only other ‘staff member’ who gave me a warm greeting turned out to be a travel agent & they were really trying to hard sell the packages which I think are both unnecessary & over priced. If you can ride a scooter everything is accessible.
8.8 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was incredibly friendly! I took the night bus and arrived at 4 in the morning, and the concierge was sleeping on her bed behind the front desk, so I woke her up (they told me to do this upon booking) and she checked me in and took me up to my room. I basically had the whole floor to myself, it was lovely and the wifi worked well. The breakfast that was included was also great! I had a delicious banana pancake and tea.
Cons: The only problem I ran into was that I booked a bus from the front desk for the following night. The bus was supposed to pick me up at 4:00 am, so I ready and waiting outside at 3:40 am. Unfortunately, my bus didn't stop to pick me up, so I had to pay for a different bus ticket. I am not sure if this was a miscommunication on the hotels part or if it was an error of the bus driver.

Pros: The most amazing place we’ve stayed during the whole of Vietnam and possibly out of our 10 months in Asia. The hospitality we received was incredible, the lady who owns this place really goes above and beyond to make you happy and she has a very cute child! Great banana pancakes for breakfast and lovely ginger tea, the lady cooked us breakfast even before the official breakfast times! Cheap motorbike rental for a good quality bike. Only charge laundry when it is dry rather than when it all wet and dirty. She helped to arrange our bus. Always greeted with friendly smiles every time we were here, just a lovely homestay. Great view from the room of the mountains and in the centre of town. Amazing place, can’t say enough good things about here.

She speaks english and helped us getting a taxi for the day to visit the Paradise Cave. She also recommended us a great place to eat. I commented her if we could have the breakfast the day of our arrival instead of the day of our departure (because we had to leave reaaaally soon), and there was no problem at all! She cooks the best banana pancakes of all the places we stayed at in Vietnam (and I mean real pancakes, not crepes). The room was clean and had A/C and fan working perfectly. Great views to the mountains from my room. Location is perfect, just next to an ATM. I would go back there without a doubt!

Pros: Linh is such a lovely host! She welcomed us even we arriving at 4am. They picked us at the bus stop at at such early hour and helped us choosing the best cave tour. She is a former cave guide so she knows all about them. The tour was private for us and definitely the best experience in our 3 week trip. The guesthouse is lovely, very comfortable and spacious. Gotta thank Linh and her lovely family.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We were impressed by the cleanliness of the house. Ruc Mon Cave 2D1N exploring tour recommended by Linh the host was the most amazing experience we had when traveling in Vietnam. Linh and her family members are very kind and accommodating, willing to help us with nitty gritty requests without demanding any return for extra charge.
Cons: None
7.5 Good
Pros: the location is why i chose this homestay as it's on the river. the main contact Linh was very helpful. Her english and willingness to help were faultless Also it is just outside the main Phong Nha township and easy bike distance. nice spot
Cons: Sometimes a little to much "home" and too little "stay" being a family place. As of early July 2019 Linh is 8+ months pregnant with baby #2 and was understandably at times unavailable. The family were friendly but not really helpful with normal everyday needs of guests when Linh was not around.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Linh was an excellent host, she made us feel very welcome and was really useful for information about the area. Having been a tour guide herself she was able to recommend us cave experiences and the one we chose was fantastic and not a well known one so there was nobody else there. Also she sorted our washing and gave us a lift for free into the town centre for our departure. Free bicycles to borrow and food was excellent. Overall great stay and would definitely recommend!
Cons: Bit of a walk from the centre of town with our heavy bags (thought it close on the map but a far walk in reality). Also the ants :/
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Cozy home is how it felt, almost like I was a visiting friend, right from being picked up at the bus station at 4:30am. It was close enough to the town center, just a short ride on one of their free bikes, but just far enough away so it was quiet, & right across the street from the river. There may have been the odd cosmetic flaw, but the rooms were clean, & beds comfortable. On more than 1 occasion I was asked to join the family to eat, it really made me feel at home. Breakfasts were good, one morning maybe the best pho I had the whole month I was in Vietnam. WiFi worked fine. I chose this place after reading comments about My Linh's knowledge of the caves in the national park. After speaking I took her advice & did Ruc Mon cave, & there was no problem with me modifying my booking. The trip was one of the most challenging & amazing experiences I've had in my life, thanks for steering me that way:-) One of these days I'll make it back to Vietnam, & Green Riverside Cosy Home will be my first choice for Phong Nha.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Perfect location, quiet and clean rooms. Ling and her family are really friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a nice family dinner and spend a really good time on a perfect organised tour :)

They make up for any minor shortcomings. They even waited outside with us the day we left to flag down our bus to Dong Hoi.
Cons: There was a limited amount of choices for breakfast, which was fine, but there was no beverage included. We had to pay for our coffee or juice in the mornings. Also over 3 nights we never got our rooms cleaned, including the overflowing wastepaper basket in the bathroom. When I asked to exchange our towels they were very quick to help, and so kind. Maybe we were supposed to empty our own wastepaper baskets? These are all minor problems though.

Pros: The staff at Chay Lap are incredibly professional. The atmosphere is casual and friendly, and the facilities were excellent. Staff helped me to rent a motor scooter and gave me directions to some excellent local sights including Phong Nha Cave, Paradise Cave, and the gorgeous views on top of U Bo Mountain. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. The menu was varied and one of the managers even prepared a special Crème Brûlée! Another manager guided us across the river on a boat taxi for our motor scooters, and across two hanging bridges into town where we enjoyed amazing coffee and Phong Nha Coffee Station. Best coffee in town!! The location was perfect and it was so easy to use Chay Lap as my home base for exploring the famous Phong Nha-Kebang National Park. I enjoyed many conversations with the staff and fellow guests and was sad to say goodbye. I highly recommend Chay Lap Farmstay!!
Cons: Nothing

Pros: I was injured while riding a motorbike. The second I got back to Chay lap, they transported me to hospital with 4 of their staff including the managers who stayed with me the whole time including being transported to a hospital further away. I write this as the head manager is in the same room as me at 3AM after I had to spend the night at the hospital. I never write reviews for anything, but this was different. Never have I ever felt so welcomed and grateful for people I just met. Amazing service and amazing people. Traveling alone could be scary especially after the accident I had, but they made me feel like family. If You are traveling to Phong Nha, there isn’t a thought in my mind on staying somewhere else.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location with beautiful surroundings! Staff was very friendly and helpful!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: My buddy and I stayed here for three days and I have to say it was the best homestay I have ever stayed at hands down. It is located on a small farm in a beautiful area in great proximity to all of the caves and sites in the area. They did an awesome job of making sure my friend and I enjoyed our time. We had zero plans when we got there and they arranged for us to do a day tour with Jungle Boss (awesome way to explore caves) and helped us rent motor bikes to explore the area. The food was also great, most items came directly from the farm….. try the Hot Pot However what made the farmstay so enjoyable was the staff! I honestly do not know if I have met nicer people who were very grateful to have us and went out of their way to ensure we had a good time. Special shout out to Moon and Nhu (sorry if I spelled the names wrong) who were awesome! I highly recommend staying at this homestay. It is in a great area and will allow you to experience an area of Vietnam outside of the city/ocean environment.
Cons: no complaints.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The bungalow was super nice and clean. The hotel spot is wonderful, in the middle of the jungle. A dock when you can get a kayak is 5 mins walking.
Cons: Breakfast is limited after 9 am.
7.5 Good
Pros: Our caban was very nice. The tour that was organised was great!
Cons: The boiler for the hot water was not turned on before we arrived so our first showers were cold ones. When we took bikes out no one gave us any tips to out route we should take. I felt that information and organisation was lacking for the price that we paid.

Pros: Room was spacious and spotless. (The rooms in the new build are huge and with good view). The family are really friendly. Good location.
Cons: Essentially our main complaint is about construction noise. They're building an Applebee2 next door (50cm from our window) and the building work starts just after 7am and finishes around 6.30pm. I'm sure that once this had finished it'll be a perfect location to stay. Our bathroom shared a wall and light with the bathroom next door. The wall did not reach the ceiling. We could hear, smell everything from next door and all night the light would go on and off from the next door bathroom. Again, this won't be a problem in the new build. The breakfast is a little boring.... Fried egg, bread and banana.

Pros: We had a great time at Applebee’s Homestay. It is slightly out of town, but still very doable by foot or (motor)bike. The location next to the river is lovely. The room was clean and comfy. The owners are very friendly and helpful. They also arranged a bus ticket to Hoi An for us (we had a stopover in Hué for two hours, which made the journey much longer, so keep that in mind if you’re heading in the same direction). Thang was so kind to bring us to the bus pick-up at 6.45 in the morning. Thank you!

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Everything is very clean and new! The family is very nice and helpful if you want to rent a bike and explore the area by yourself (which I totally recommend!). The views are spectacular and there's not a best spot to have breakfast than in front of the beautiful river!
Cons: Everything was great! Only thing is, it would be great to have a small fridge and a little table or shelf on the bedroom to keep things cold and have some space to storage.
