Told to move as we were tourists even though we chose our beds and paid extra fir them. Lady walked off not showing us where to go so after having a look and not finding any tourists we stayed put.

Train was super bumpy and the operators were smoking outside our door which was kinda gross. Our door fell off the hinges and our light would not turn off. Beds were ok.

The cabin and bed was comfortable and well decorated. At first they didn’t have one of the passengers details but then they found her booking and brought her water, coffee, beer etc. The train manager was nice but didn’t speak much English which was surprising as this was supposed to be a special coach just for international travelers. The toilet was not super clean but usable. They mentioned free milk in the welcome letter but we couldn’t get any which was disappointing and fresh fruits just meant 1 banana. But the views on the journey were beautiful so all in all a much better experience than expected:) would recommend for a well rested journey.

Tickets were easy to purchase and really good to not have to print off. It’s an overnight train in Vietnam so trip was actually better than expected ????

Everything great, apart from the toilets and train’s bar which are very dirty...

Everything was clean in our cabins, but sheets obviously used. Slept in our sleeper bags, was fine. Toilets stink and are always wet. REMEMBER TO SWITCH OFF THE SPEAKERS ABOVE THE DOOR, IT'LL HELP ;) !!

Good journey. Bunks were quite comfortable. Great views.

We were in a 6-bed carriage which was extremely cramped. We had a small child in the room too sleeping with her mum, who was loud in the morning - there's no way of knowing in advance if you would have a screaming baby in your room. No room to sit up in bed, only lie down which was awkward to get into in the first place especially the top bunks (if you have limited range of movement and cannot bend in all sorts of ways, it's extremely awkward). There were bugs in the carriage and people smoking in the halls. The toilets were grim with not enough toilet paper half the time. The guard on our coach was also very rude and didn't help us lift our luggage onto a top rack when we asked (he motioned that he was too weak...). The train was 14 hours long so didn't sleep the whole time, yet not room to sit up in bed so had to stand in the hallway and later sit on a children's plastic chair in the way of a food cart. All in all, it did the job of getting us to our next destination and it was on time, but it wasn't comfortable. Next time I'd definitely get a first class carriage.

A bit scary as a woman travelling solo, though actually no problems. Also, train toilets...euw!

Surprisingly comfortable. Very clean, thoughtful amenities. Loud, but that can't be helped!
