Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A great way to spend an hour or two. A hidden gem of a visit. Was expecting little due to poor reviews but we loved it. Paid £10 for a return taxi with the driver waiting for two hours. Some reviews say no issue getting a taxi back but it was deserted when we went. 40000VND pp. Have to climb 50ish well maintained steps to entrance. A few models enhance the visit. Fascinating visit.great street cafe opposite with super value drinks.

Not so impressive - looks more like a big bunker with a few neglected props in it. You can surely skip this one.

Interesting place where you can see how the soldiers were hiding and hospitalized during the war against US.

We received a guided tour of the place. The place is really unique. You can learn more about the war and how they were living and try to protect patients from the bombs

A cave,despite what ihas in it,Definitely requires more explanatory sign postage.
Most of the travelers there, were loners like us,not on guided tours.
There could be much more learnt about it.
Medical services provided, how many peiple were in it at a given time, how long were they there.
iIt does not need more items things in it, but being in it with greater commentary provided can lead to a more enlightening experience.If you donot kniw anything about the war.one cannot leaarn much here.It is not self explantory...

Hospital Cave is really interesting to see. But, it would be nice if there was some additional signage or information about the site. Since we were not traveling with a tour guide, we really just observed the cave and tried to imagine what it was all about from the short description in the online guidebook. We were even traveling with Vietnamese friends so the issue was language but lack of a sense of value in telling the story of the cave.

But, even without a great deal of explanation, it's totally worth visiting the cave just to see the scale and the organization of this hospital. It's in three levels and even has a swimming pool! There are some mannequins set up that bring some life to the place even without signage.

Of note, this place is accessible at the top of some very steep steps!

Most the rooms are empty or just have a bed frame in them. Very little to no information about what the rooms housed, what happened here etc. We could only guess it was from the Vietnam America war? Fair few steep slippery steps to climb up too. Bonus that the loo had loo roll. Bazinga.

We visited the cave during our short motorbike trip across the Cat Ba Island.
There are several caves at the island. We just saw only this one. It is quite interesting to see. You going up to the cave entrance and the guy , who is checking the tickets is telling you few words about the history.

Visited with our guide Luu, he explained how the hospital was used during the war with the USA.
They have rooms like wards with beds in, medicine storage, kitchen etc.
Steep stairs to reach
