Because here, sleeping space will be divided into bunk beds, like beds in student dormitories. The rooms are also divided into different types, 4 beds, 6 beds, or 10 beds. A special thing only in this type is that visitors to the hostel usually do not discriminate between genders, both men and women can live together in the same room and if privacy is needed, there will be curtains to cover that bed. However, this is only suitable for countries in Europe, and in Vietnam to ensure cultural suitability, hostels still divide rooms by gender, men and women will stay in separate rooms.

Specific features of this type are:

Each motel only has about 10 - 20 rooms with room rates from 13 USD/night/room. The staff at the motels are also not many, one person can take on many different jobs, so the quality of customer service is not as good as other types.

Type of homestay

Homestay is a type of tourism that is very "hot" today. With this type, tourists instead of staying at hotels will choose to stay at local homestays. Here, they will discover, experience as well as learn all the unique customs and cultural life of the regions.

Homestays are often built in residential areas with diverse cultural resources, areas with preserved wild resources, places with ethnic cultural characteristics, or areas where there are insufficient conditions. conditions to build hotels or motels.

The scale of the homestay is quite small, each family can only welcome from 10 to 30 guests at a very cheap price, only from a few dozen to a few hundred thousand per room. The services here are also average, but still, ensure all the necessary facilities for visitors to visit and rest.
