Located in the city of Dong Hoi, Quang Binh province, a hostel named “Why Not Hostel” which is built from shipping containers has attracted many locals and tourists.

Why Not Hostel’s rooms and constructions are all made from shipping containers which were bought from Da Nang city and then renovated and designed to form convenient rooms. This is also the first container hostel in Vietnam, bringing fun to every vacationer.

This new style hostel has 20 rooms put in colourful painted containers. The rooms are connected with spacious corridors. The heatproof-designed containers with leaves roofs are cool and airy. The hostel is also surrounded with green trees, which make visitors feel cool all the time. The rooms are well-equipped with fridges and air-conditioners, to accommodate visitors with the best experience.

Anh Dung, a visitor staying at the container hostel, expressed his surprise at the convenience of the service. “I always associate container with simplicity, yet this container hostel is different. The bright, fun colours really catch the eyes and rooms are fully-furbished as well,” Dung said.

Another visitor, My Linh, was curious how containers can be reused and turned into hostels in such a creative way.

Making use of the abundant amount of containers, Hoang Nha Trang, the hostel owner, has spent a year trying to turn his dream into reality. He also uses discarded items to turn them into decorations.
