Good location
The only good things that can be said about the hotel is that their location is really good, right next to the famous old quarter shopping district. Also the staff were pretty helpful, helping us book our train tickets. Unfortunately one of the beds we booked had bedbugs and my friend now carries the bite scars all over his body. The noise from the traffic was pretty bad at night as well.

Cheap backpacker hostel

Near old quarter, friendly staff
Friendly staff and good location. The price is cheap but you can find better place around with good room. Breakfast is just egg and bread.

A Very Dissappointing Trip

Big beds, good location, cheap price
Firstly, when we arrived at the hostel we were moved to a different one a short walk away, yet still inconvienient. Hoan Kiem hostel provided a poor service for our stay. Mainly due to the shower leaking and getting all of our belongings wet and smelling of damp! Additionally, we were advised to book our Halong Bay trip by their staff which turned out to be awful. Definitely opt for the day trip rather than the simply dredfull overnight stay. Finally, as we also booked our buses under the staffs recommendation, when we arrived in Hue it was an absolute nightmare to catch our other bus to Hoi An, appearing to be a fault on the bus companys part.

good experience

nice dorm room . fast internet , helpful staff
This is a very nice small hostel to stay. The rooms were clean, with 6 beds and an own bathroom. Staff was really helpful and friendly. Rooms are quite cheap. Breakfast is included - and you was really fine. Hostel is located near to the town center. Would recommand the Hostel to everyone who's searching for a cheap and comfortable room.

nice staff, good location, cheap price
I guess you get what you paid for, but I know there are some hostel in the same area with a tiny bit more money have much better condition. Room cleanliness is just acceptable, not that kind of hostel where you would hang out and relax, it's more like just get a bed to sleep and shower then go hostel. After all, location is great and staffs are nice.
