After reading reviews, I thought this would be a nice relaxed hostel, but that wasn't the case. It was dirty (especially the showers), no hot water, uncomfortable bathrooms, and a weird vibe from the staff. I planned to stay a while but cut it after two nights. Just seems like the entire place is neglected and no effort is put...

Warm welcoming friendly hostel. Super close to the beach and restaurants. No hot water for showers but the weather is so hot in phu quoc one does not need the hot water! Local dude at the front desk is really helpful.

We thought it would be a relaxing, small hostel with a great atmosphere but it wasn't. We planned to stay 5 nights but we reduced it to 3 nights. First, it was dirty, second there is no warm water,...

I stayed at Phu Quoc and was recommended to look for Mushroom´s from a friend of mine as it would be the perfect place to enjoy the right spirit of the Phu Quoc island. I have to be honest, the recommendation was very good. I was driven there by a taxi through their porch and was greeted by a smily...

We enjoyed the laid back atmosphere in the hostel and the yard. A really cool place to meet people. Also the staff was very nice. On the yard there are many hammocks and nice chairs to rest and chill out with nice people after exploring the island. The beach is a 5 min walk distance away.
