Cat Ba Mountain View Guesthouse

One step removed from the hustle of town, this collection of gaily decorated bungalows (both private and dorm options) is backed by a cliff. The spacious, thatch-roofed restaurant area is a great social spot for hanging out and meeting fellow travellers. It's on the main road, 3km from Cat Ba town.

All with air conditioning, fully equipped bathrooms, lockers and free WiFi for our guests these rooms also have the charm of being much more immersed in nature than any other hostel in Cat Ba.

There are a total of 8 self-contained rooms and there are regular events hosted with a barbeque and drinks. Being just 3km from the center of Cat Ba, it is easily reachable, yet far enough away to avoid the noise of town. There are also special walks which go directly from our Guesthouse due to our location.

We have an in-house restaurant serving traditional Vietnamese cuisine such as vegetable spring rolls, fresh noodle soup with beef or seafood, as well as other foods such as burgers, spaghetti etc.

Lan Homestay

This pretty compound wasn't quite finished when we stopped by, but if the existing rooms are anything to go by, it will be a clever budget choice. Expect 10 spacious, if somewhat dark, brick bungalows, all with ensuite bathrooms, in a quiet corner of Viet Hai village.
