Nice family with a nice house. Zizi cooks very good food too! They can give you a tour guide for trekking and recommend good spots to see around Sapa. They also can hire a taxi or motorbike as well to get around. Gorgeous sunsets to see from the deck area.
Charming place with big open accommodation dorm style, but also individual rooms. Zizi speaks English and hires front of house who speak even better English. Delicious dinner always offered for a little extra. The house is up a very steep narrow track from the 'main road'
Zizis is a nice place to stay if you're looking for the rustic experience. The family dinners are good, the rest of the food on offer is not as great. The staff/management are always around and very helpful in organizing activities and making travel arrangements etc.
Be prepared for a bit of a hike right off the bat since your taxi will drop you off at the bottom of a very steep entryway (about a 5 min hike uphill), which can be daunting if you haven't adjusted well to the altitude.
The only major problem we faced was the lack of toilet facilities in the lower house, since the toilets are in the main house which is locked post 12am till 5.30am.
This place was absolutely fantastic. Just what we were looking for. The sleep set up is actually about 15 beds all in one room, upstairs. Mosquito nets around every bed. No A/C but plenty of fans and the air was cooler anyway in the mountains. Great food. They also guide tours to Fansipan and another high mountain cabin for better prices than you will find in SaPa
The most amazing homestay where I stayed in Vietnam! Zizi and her children were so kind and made me feel like I was part of their family. The view on the mountains and the ricefield is breathtaking. The food is delicious (especially the spring rolls). Good place to start a trek! If you want to experience the real and traditional Sapa in the heart of a Hmong village, you should definitely go there! Special thanks for Maria and Zizi ! Hope I will be able to come back
