Average price for a bed: Cheap! Hostels in Da Nang start from 5€ per night up to 10€ per nights for a bed in a dorm. A private room starts from 12€ up to 25€. This is a rough average just to give you an idea.
Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.
Dragon Bridge on Weekend: The Dragon Bridge is one of the coolest sights in Da Nang. Every Saturday and Sunday night the Dragon even spits fire. Try to stay over the weekend in Da Nang, it’s worth it.
The hostel building itself is super cool. There’s a beautiful mix of wood, tiles and unique architecture that will surely make your jaw drop.
Feel that natural sea-breeze flow through the hostel as you marvel at the skylight.
The owner’s inspiration for design was based on a tranquil waterfall in a jungle setting.

At Rom Casa Hostel you can stay in following rooms:
6 Bed Dorms
4 Bed Dorms
Deluxe Double Room
3, 4 or 6 Bed Private Room
The weakest point of the hostel might be the size of the rooms. They are actually quite small, too small really. But if you are okay with only spending time here to sleep, that’s fine.
Location: Want to stay near party places and the beach? Then it is perfect! The beach is just a 5 minute walk away, you can walk with your surf board there – like many people do. Some great bars to go out for a drink are the nightmarket, The Simple Man, and The Surf Shack.
For exploring Da Nang and the area like Son Tra Peninsula you will need to rent a scooter.

The Memory Hostel is a remarkable budget accommodation, perfect for every traveler looking for a unique hostel with character.
And yes, it’s the sister hostel to our NEW 5 star hostel The Memory – Danang.
From the reception desk, make your way to the rooftop terrace with a really special view of the river and panaramic view.
Psst! From up there you can see an actual dragon.
The best way to enjoy the view is to grab a drink from the rooftop bar first. Ask the staff about joining one of their fun tours. We recommend riding a motorbike around and fishing with the locals!
We can’t sign off without mentioning the wonderful bunk beds – they have privacy curtains, a shelf, light & linen included.
Room choices includes:
4, 8 and 12-bed mixed dorms
6-bed female dorm
Location: Perfect! You are in the heart of the city, just a 1 minute walk from the market, 5 minutes to the Dragon Bridge. Around the corner you find a great Sushi place, the best pizza in town, great burger places, and even fantastic vegetarian food.
Obviously, you also find the great Vietnamese food. Ask the staff – they have the best tips every single time. They also offer their staff-food tour; recommended to join!
Good to know: Fancy a Banh Mi? Just across the corner you find a great Banh Mi.
We are talking about 4-5€ a night for a fantastic hostel in Da Nang.
There is really no need to go below that since the quality will drop dramatically.
The difference is usually 1€ ($1) per night, and a lot of amenities are not included. This can be breakfast or linen. Also important, every single super-cheap in Vietnam we stayed in came with bed-bugs, cockroaches and other surprises. This is really based on my own experience.
Stay away from the absolute cheapest places in Vietnam – and invest that extra 50 cents or 1$.
Again, hostels are anyway super cheap, starting from 5€ per night. You will see the difference.
However, if you are traveling on a shoe-string budget and you wanna save every penny, there are ways to find the cheapest places in Da Nang.

Best Hostels in Da Nang for Solo Travellers?
What is the coolest, best hostel in Da Nang for solo-travellers?
The staff organizes small walking tours to the local night market, and to the Dragon Bridge on weekends. There’s also occasionally meet-ups where locals and travelers mingle. It is really a great place to connect.
There’s only one private room, the rest are dorms with bunk beds. This means lots of friends, and solo-travelers are staying here.
Also not to miss: The roof top terrace! We had great nights here, listening to music, enjoying a drink and watching the dragon bridge at night. Go for it!
Need a visa to Vietnam? Yes, you most likely do. Yet, this is always changing. Seriously! In 3 years it changed now 3-4 times. So better be up to date.
Da Nang is also a hub to and from Hong Kong and Taiwan. So this city can be easily your entering city to Vietnam.
Read our full review on iVisa, the shortcut for your visa around the world.
We got our visa with iVisa, it was super fast and cheap. Certainly much cheaper than other travellers we met. Unfortunately this German guy did not tell us his online company he got the visa from, but he paid 80€ while we paid 25€.
After spending some time here, we thought it is also helpful for you to understand some basic safety rules, such as riding a motorbike.
Anywhere in Vietnam you will say: The traffic is crazy! Yep, and that is certainly true. And believe it or not, there’s simple rules you can follow to stay safe 99% of the time.
Forget a good 50% your traffic rules you learned at home. The absolute basic rule for participating in traffic in Vietnam is: The bigger you are, the more priority you have.
The bigger you are, the more priority you have.
You cannot ride a little motorbike and think you will go before that truck because the law says so. Nope, nope, nope! Do yourself a favor, and drive patiently and slow – and give priority to anything that is bigger than you. That is anything from cars, taxis, trucks etc.
The second rule is pretty simple too: You almost never break. You always drive around obstacles in the way. Since traffic is in general slow, you simply drive around the car, other motorbikes etc.
The same applies to pedestrians.
No need to wait for your turn to cross the street (unless it’s a traffic light). Keep an eye out, look at the drivers, and walk slowly crossing the street. Do not run – anything that moves super fast in traffic here could cause an accident.
Last but not least, we are not your mommy, but please do yourself a favor and drive 1st with a helmet and 2nd slow. We have seen many many expats and travelers with broken legs and other severe injuries.
Renting a Motorbike:
Renting a motorbike is super simple. You can find rental services on every corner.
We recommend asking Memory Hostel or whatever accommodation you choose. The price is usually around 120.000 Dong for 24 hours.
You will notice many people leave their helmet on their bike – without locking it. If you only own a low-quality, simple helmet, you can do this too. And nobody will take it.
However, if your helmet looks even remotely cool or good quality, someone could take it. It happened to us…
Da Nang is super safe, actually all of Vietnam is very safe.
Of course there is the occasional pick-pocketing. Yet, we don’t think there is any special trick you need to know to avoid being pick-pocketed. Cities like Barcelona and Rome are much worse in that sense.
That being said, Ho Chi Minh City is a hot spot too for pickpockets. It’s common to steal from travelers, so pay attention in HCMC.
