To make a trip to the Central Highlands city of Da Lat more interesting, tourists can consider choosing a homestay or hostel room, instead of a luxury hotel one in town.
For a two-day trip to Da Lat at weekend, tourists can stay at The Circle Viet Nam Hostel on Dang Thai Than Street, around three kilometers from the city’s downtown.
At a cost of VND200,000 per person per night, the hostel attracts tourists by its colorful tubes where customers stay. Inside each circle room is a bed for two people and a toilet.
The area at the yard in front of those rooms is for cooking and other community activities. There, tourists can cook food or gather in groups for chatting and singing.
Another feature of The Circle Viet Nam Hostel is the beautiful natural landscape with green valleys, hills of pine trees and villas hidden behind the mist.
For another homestay option in Da Lat, tourists can go to La Nha Homestay on Hoang Dieu Street.
The space of La Nha gives guests a nostalgic feeling with old tables, chairs, wardrobes, and black and white TVs.
Almost all items used for decoration are secondhand flower vases, pieces of glass, umbrellas, doors but each room is equipped with modern furniture such as air-conditioners and water heaters.
La Nha has some shared rooms with single beds and tents put around its yard. La Nha also has an area for people to get together for cooking or warming up.
