I loved the super relaxing and very friendly atmosphare here! Its away from the busyness of old town but still near enough to enjoy the beautiful views after sunset. I felt like Im at a friend's place in one of the most beautiful part of Hoi An and having a proper cold drink. Absolute must after a long day of... More

Exellent and Cosy place, Nice and friendly service. Very recommendable. Good atmosphere. Cheap beer and drinks. We had a lot of fun at their pool table and chatting to some of the Hoi An expats that seems to be hanging around there every evening. A place that we'll defently visit again.

This review should be read bearing in mind that the Sleepy Gecko has only been re-opened a couple of weeks now, after the previous host Steve decided to retire. It's run by a couple of great guys who backpackers will find it easy to relate to and the atmosphere is like dropping round to a mate's house for a beer.... More

My brother and I stayed here for 3 nights while in Hoi An. We were in a private room and it was fine. The staff was friendly and helpful. I remember that maybe the hot water was broken, but this was not a big deal because it's Vietnam in the summer and it was hot out! The bar was chill... More

We came to this place kind of randomly but it was a very nice idea. The bar is really chill in a nice way. We came two days in a row, having pizzas and a few beers. If you're near the place, you should definitely see by yourself how nice it is (and you also have very good music) and... More

Called to check if it was still there after visiting 3 years previously. Ended up joining a religious debate with the owner and his friends , always nice to have a good intelligent conversation with strangers. The owner will always make you welcome and speaks to everyone - hope this place is still there next time we visit but with... More

Cant really say that I would trust much from their kitchen, but the place is run by a very nice expat and his family and is a nice place to go grab a few beers, go for a swim, and generally just relax. There are also a couple of very basic rooms upstairs for rent that can be ideal for... More

As they say, chat with Steve, enjoy a few drinks and some conversation. Prices are cheap, the vibe is chill. Fun guy to have a chat with!

Close to everything on offer in Hoi An and Steve the owner is a great bloke to enjoy a quiet beer with. (Even though he is a Pom) ;-) Worth checking out there accommodation as the few stayers I met loved it. Not the Ritz but Chill Out Hotel and Bar for Sure!

The Hideout Hostel Hoi An's bar serving really ice cold beer and bar snacks. Escape from the crowd in Hoi An yet still manage to enjoy the town. Our views back across the water to Hoi An are awesome - a photographers dream. Chillout on our open balcony and enjoy the magnificent sunsets with your favourite food and cocktails. Listen to great music until late. We are an easy 10 minute walk across the Cam Nam bridge and directly opposite the Hoi An market.
