Da Lat Family Hostel: Vietnam's Hidden Treasure

Tucked away on a small street in Vietnam, Da Lat Family Hostel is a hidden treasure for young backpackers. Mama will make you feel right at home the second that you walk through the doors. While the rooms are not top notch, for only $5 a night this family-run hostel offers the perfect atmosphere for meeting other travelers! It is definitely worth a visit just to try a bite of Mama's delicious cooking, with the hostel offering a buffet-style family dinner each night for only $2. Also, make sure to order a jug of Mama's mojitos (lime or passion fruit) for an unbeatable price of $2/jug. 

Da Lat offers a unique full day "canyoning" experience of repelling down waterfalls, water sliding down rapids, and cliff jumping for $25. I'm not going to lie, it was definitely one of the scariest things that I've ever done (but I was being a scaredy cat about the whole ordeal)! That being said, it was definitely worth it and I'm glad that I gave it a try!
