It was an amazing time of 4 nights and you get to know more of Vietnam's culture because you stay close with Amica's family. Her sons and she are just lovely people, who speak English well. They offer you an authentic experience close to rice fields and villages. It's getting warm in the rooms around 7 to 8 am in the morning but that is no problem if you go hiking anyways and is also compensated by the stunning view. The beds are very comfy and the shower is okay but not overwhelming good (pressure, temperature sometimes). Btw I stayed in the 5 beds room. I enjoyed the view every morning next to the delicious breakfast. They served pancakes with honey, one fried egg and different fruits. Its also very cool that they offer filtered water for free. 👌 Amica helped with so many things like taxi, motorbike rental, tours and tips. Her son Ming speaks perfect English and showed us hidden gems on the free trekking tour that is included. We also spend funny times at playing Uno cards together at evening and had a lot to laugh. 😁 Big thanks again for helping me out, when I made the mistake of wrong booking and for the awesome homemade family dinner. It felt a little bit like a second family for me. 🥰

We backpacked through Vietnam for 40 days and Amica House was one of the highlights. Incredibly beautiful location with sweeping views (some tours would stop outside the window just to take a picture, it's that beautiful). The family dinners are nice too, very tasty and lots of variety. We befriended several other travelers who we met up with in future cities. They have a helpful website and the family speaks great English, very friendly and eager to assist in planning if desired. They also lead a trek through the rice fields that was quite nice.

This is one of the best places we've stayed in Vietnam so far! The family is super warm and friendly and they really contributed to our lovely time here. Enjoy the trekking tour hosted by the oldest son Mingh or participate in the cooking class. It's a very quiet and relaxing place and we would love to come back!
This is the best homestay I have stayed in! They were so sweet and took care of everything. Always wanting to help. Amazing food and conversation

I'd give 6 stars if I could! Hong and her family are the nicest people I've ever met. The location is stunning. Hong adapted the breakfast for my dietary requirements and it was delicious. The family dinners were a great way to meet the other people staying in the hostel, and the food was varied and very tasty. I especially liked the hot pot. The bed was very comfy. The free guided trek was really really good! We loved the dog & cat

I wouldn’t think twice about booking to stay at Amica House. Located in a small village just outside of Sapa it’s quiet but absolutely perfect. The family are extremely friendly, helpful and the teenage son Ming is one of the most bubbly, vibrant, polite human beings I have ever met. You get a lovely breakfast included, and as part of your stay you can do a free 3 hour trek and opt in to paying for a cooking class+family dinner. Our room was spotless and had large windows overlooking rice fields and water buffalo every morning. This is genuinely one of the best home stays we have been to. Thank you so much for everything.

Foncez n’hésitez pas ! Nous sommes restés 5 jours à Amica hostel avec mon copain et c’était une super expérience ! La vue de la chambre double est incroyable ! (Sur les rizières) La chambre est grande et fonctionnelle. La famille qui tient cette hostel est juste adorable et au petit soin. Nous avions chaque matin une petit déjeuner très copieux. La famille propose chaque soir un dîner pour 100 000d /p et je vous assure que ça en vaut le coup ! Un repas varié avec viande, légume, riz et dans une ambiance conviviale ! On a eu l’occasion de faire un trekking dans les rizières avec un des membres de la famille et c’était génial ! Merci pour votre accueil ! Emma & Basil
Nous avons passé 5 nuits dans cette magnifique auberge, si vous recherchez l'authenticité, cette endroit est fait pour vous ! La vue depuis les chambres est juste splendide, la nourriture qu'on vous propose que ça soit le petit déjeuner ou le dîner, est juste un délice ! Pour 2 nuits réservés, on vous propose un trek pour découvrir le village et les paysages qui vont avec ! Mais le plus gros point fort et celui qui va nous manquer le plus, c'est l'accueil de la famille et leurs joie de vivre ! On vous propose des lieux à visiter, on vous réserve un taxi si vous en avez besoin, et donne aussi des conseils sur vos futurs destinations. Merci encore ce séjour passé chez vous, vous allez nous manquer ! Basil et Emma
