When we arrived in the early morning from Sapa and central backpacker hostel didn't keep their promise to reserve a room for us, this hostel was the next best thing. We were planning to have a shower and crash here until the early afternoon and then go to the airport. Only after all the paperwork the receptionist insisted we still...

A cheap and reasonably clean place to rest your head for a night but not longer. Staff ignore you when walk in - when you ask to look at a room they just chuck you a key. They spend most of the time watching youtube vidoes and playing games online, which massivley slows down the already slow internet. I got...

It is quite a touristic neighbourhood but there is a lot of locals, it seems to be a trendy place for vietnamese as well ! Nice...

The room wasn't that bad, the location was alright as well. Right at Hoan Kiem Lake. Very touristic area. They give you breakfast (bread with butter and coffee or tea). AC was not working and the room was freaking hot. The staff in general was alright. One of the receptionists wasn't really customer service material. And made our stay there...

I stay in this hostel three times because of the price. That is true that this one is the cheapest. But also very dirty, in our room was air conditioning but always not working. We had to ask the staff to turn it on and some times they didnt do this. The main power switch for air conditioning is at...

When we stayed in Hanoi it was January and more than a little cold , there was no heating in the room but we were given plenty of blankets to make up for it. The room was large, with a private bathroom with hot water and a bath. The price was reasonable and for $15 included breakfast and free beer...
