Nha Trang is a luxury escape for travelers, but, to cater to the growing backpacker scene, low-cost options have come about. If you are a budget-conscious traveler wanting to save as much money on accommodation as possible, yet still want to sleep comfortably, give one of these hostels a try.
Tabalo Hostel is a rather trendy and modern hostel. The design is derived from the concept of a cabin on a luxury train, and each cabin is fully equipped with the essential amenities, while at the same time giving you a homely feel. The 24-hour reception is extremely helpful and will help you arrange aspects of your trip, from transport in and out of the city and tours within the city, to motorbike rentals. Tabalo’s location is a bit tricky for those who are not familiar with the alley system in Vietnam.

Tabana Hostel is another hostel with a very central location, surrounded by a plethora of local food shops and stalls. The property is less than a mile from Long Son Pagoda and a nine-minute walk from Dam Market, so it is a perfect starting point for a day of exploration. The common area is designed like a small café, and the ca phe sua da (Vietnamese iced coffee) served here is fantastic. It is also a great place to bring your laptop and catch your friends up on what you have been up to on your travel blog.

Vitamin Sea Hostel
Vitamin Sea Hostel is a rather new addition to the sea of hostels in Nha Trang, yet it quickly garnered a great reputation and has been doing well. Clean, comfortable, and with a friendly staff, this hostel checks off everything necessary to be a good place to crash at. Because it is new, you can expect the walls to be without cracks and the facilities to be spotlessly clean. In addition to the staff that go beyond their way to help you out, the location is a favorite thing among guests. It may not be close to the typical tourist attractions, however the hostel is in a very local area so you are guaranteed a more authentic experience.
