火车 #SE7 VIP卧铺舱, Vietnam Railways (Đường sắt Việt Nam), 2020年3月14日
No WiFi and no one to help us with the wifi, which is why we booked the 1st class. We got there safe which is why we rated it 3 stars. The beds were more comfortable then the 2nd class. But the ride itself was very bumpy, they have 5 people and a baby in a pod for 4 people, the foot latch to get to the top bunk was broken. The door kept getting stuck so closing our door was very difficult. Honestly next time if we ride with them again we would do the private 2x bed room. I would not want to risk being that uncomfortable again in the 4pod room.

Toilet needs to be cleaner for such a long trip whereby lots of people are using it over several hours.

We were in one of the 1st class sleeper coaches, which is significantly newer than the other coaches. Clean, comfy and the food trolley comes by every couple of hours.. Very good value way to travel.. 12go booking was spot-on!

Night train 2nd class sleeper
Hue to Nha Trang
We had no clue what to expect. There were 3 beds on top of each other! No ladder to get up just foot holds.
The beds had a pillow and blanket. They also gave us free water.
There were 6 beds and 9 people in our coach. A family shared 2 beds below us. It could get pretty noisy.
The staff offered my boyfriend and I a private room at extra cost, but we chose stay to live this local experience as it is something completely different from past experiences.
The staff checked up on our room many times to make sure everything was OK. Which was very nice and they came to announce when our stop was coming.
The staff and passengers were very helpful and supportive.

All in all, the trip from Hue to Nha Trang was okay (May 3, 2019). But there were some inconveniences: 1) the sheets were clearly slept on and we had to ask the trainman to give us new ones; 2) the toilet in our car was clogged, so we had to go to a different carriage; 3) in the last sleeper of the car, you can very distinctly hear the hand dryer work, although, thankfully, people didn't use it much at night; 4) the AC worked fine but it was difficult to understand how to set it up the way you need)
I've read somewhere that the stops aren't announced and so you can possibly miss your station. In our case, that wasn't entirely true as the trainman warned us about our stop 5-10 minutes before we had to step off.

Ich war im VIP Bereich mit 4 Betten pro Kabine. Gute Betten und genügend Platz für Gepäck. Es gibt außerdem Steckdosen und eine kleine Leselampe. Der Zug an sich ist sehr laut und ruckelt oft. Personal manchmal sehr unfreundlich.
