Wondering where to stay in Hoi An? The good news is, there are hundreds of hotels and hostels in Hoi An. The bad news? It’s so hard to choose! Here are our picks of the best hotels in Hoi An, Vietnam for all budgets.
Hoi An, Vietnam may just be the most charming city in South East Asia. The narrow streets and buildings of the ancient city provide endless diversions for the traveller who likes to walk and wander, while the restaurants and bars are varied and delicious.
In fact, we like it so much that we are currently staying in Hoi An for two months to catch up on work and enjoy the wonderfully laid-back way of life.
There are so many places to stay in Hoi An that figuring out which hotel to choose can take hours. Lucky for you, we’ve already spent ages doing the research and staying in lots of different places in the city. These are the places we would recommend for every budget.

Best Hostels in Hoi An
Rating 8.8, $9 single bed in dorm, $18 double room, breakfast included
We stayed here and liked it. This friendly hostel is in a great location just steps from Minh Hien, our favourite vegetarian restaurant in town. This hostel is a great place for meeting backpackers and other travellers and is my pick for one of the best hostels in Hoi An.
My only complaint was the lack of privacy in the dorm room, which just had three single beds squeezed in side-by-side. I would have preferred a little more space or a few curtains to divide the room a bit!
Co Hoa Homestay
Rating 8.8, $9 single bed in dorm, $18 double room, breakfast included
Co Hoa Homestay is located in the beautiful countryside, alongside picturesque rice fields. It’s only 2 km outside of the main tourist area of Hoi An and only 1 km away from the beach. The hostel provides free bicycles so you can reach everything you need around you with ease.
The owners at Co How are very warm, friendly and welcoming and go to their extra effort to put you at ease during your stay. The hostel is very clean and has a beautiful garden and a lovely terrace where you can enjoy a huge fresh breakfast each morning.
Bougain Villeas Homestay
Rating 9.1, $11 double room, breakfast included

At Bougain Villeas, you can expect to be greeted with fresh smoothies and wake up to a delicious daily home cooked breakfast including a variety of fresh fruits.

Best Budget Hotels in Hoi An
Rating 9.7, $17 double room, great breakfast included
We stayed here and loved it! We discovered the Vinstar because it was in the same neighbourhood as The Volar, where we stayed for almost a week. I knew immediately that I wanted to stay at the Vinstar for a night, just to try it out. I’m so glad we did!
This is one of the best places I’ve ever stayed in Vietnam. Spotlessly clean, super quiet, comfy beds in friendly rooms, and with the best rental bicycles in town, the Vinstar is a notch above other places in this price range.
The family who owns the Vinstar are exceptionally warm, friendly, and helpful, too. Oh, and breakfast was delicious!
Rating 9.3, $21 double room, good breakfast included
We stayed here and really liked it! On our most recent trip to Hoi An, where I’m currently writing this, we decided to rent an apartment and stay for two months. While searching for our home, we stayed at the Volar for a week – it started to feel a little like home.
The staff here are super-friendly and fluent in English, so we always felt really welcome when we returned. It’s not really a homestay, but after a few days it did feel like home! They also went above and beyond, receiving some packages for us, even after we’d already checked out!
Our room had a balcony overlooking the pool, was extra-large, very clean, and with a nice comfy bed. It’s on a quiet street, so there wasn’t even any need for earplugs at night!
Rating 9.1, $25-30 for a double, breakfast included, swimming pool
If you’re in town during a heat wave, then grab a room at this Hoi An boutique hotel where you can cool off in the outdoor pool or just enjoy a poolside cocktail.
