Operator Information


Vietnam Backpacker Hostels are legendary on the Southeast Asian backpacker trail for one reason. They provide so much more than just a bed. The second a backpacker arrives at one of their hostels or signs up for a trip - they become part of a huge family that looks out for one another - meaning that it's impossible to ever be lonely again!

Their value-for-money trips are designed for backpackers who are wanting to cram in as many activities and meet as many people as possible. Be prepared for non-stop fun when booking a trip with these guys!

We first met the Aussie owners of the hostel chain, Max and Mick, almost 10 years ago when they only had one hostel in Hanoi. They now have several all across the country and their success is a testament to the fact that they understand backpackers and know how to organise some of the best trips in the country! Having been backpackers themselves back in the day, they know what a backpacker wants and how to provide it to them.

With their awesome team, you'll get to visit exclusive and off-the-beaten-track destinations, hang out with like-minded travellers, enjoy incredible activities and feel safe in the hands of a professional tour operator and Vietnam’s best guides!

    Obviously this was very, very nice! My wife and I joined up with Jonno (guide) and one other woman from the Netherlands. The early start was nice as we got to see the beach at it’s quietest, we enjoyed an iced coffee and a little briefing before getting out onto the ocean. I’m a coward and a little overweight so I stayed on my knees (which was allowed) but the other three were drifting about casually. Sunrise was beautiful! Jonno, our guide, was just a really good, lovely, fun guy who was clearly very confident in the water and made us feel safe and cared for. Thank you. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone.

    A truly unforgettable experience and well worth the 4.00am wake up call! I chose to do the Aloha Sunrise Tour along Hoi An Beach in the early hours of the morning. The tour was incredible with breathtaking views and a very knowledgable SUP tour guide who has mastered the art of capturing that perfect instagram shot – allowing you to focus on standing up.. and not falling off! The tour offered great value for money and included a delicious iced coffee and breakfast back at VBH’s Kahuna’s Beach Club! I absolutely loved this tour from start to finish and would highly recommend, definitely one not to be missed!
