Good value& excellent service my trip
The staff were so welcoming and kind! Free tea all day!s value for money. They helped with airport transfers and were the most honest with finding tours (I recommend them for Halong and Open Bus To Sai Gon as they have the time and are not as pushy and dishonest as with other tour companies I have dealt with) the breakfast is divine! One of mine and my partner's favourite places to stay in Hanoi!

Lovely people!!
Staff were so friendly and wanted to do everything they could to help - had lots of advice and were able to book tours and travel for us! Also let you shower etc for free when you come back from a trip. Lots of choice on free breakfast. Would definitely stay again.

Very Friendly and Cheap Ha long bay
The staffs were really friendly and helpful, it's cheap, clean, my dorm mates were really nice, I met Corinne who immediately became my friend and travelmate during my stay there and had tons of fun. I like the atmosphere there. Especially the people.And whoever wants to book a trip to Halong, and wants the cheapest, book the 85USD there at the hostel. Some people in the boat during my trip book it for 105USD and got the same service as ours, same food, same activities, same itineraries.

Great location, great price”
The location of the hostel was superb, walking distance from many shops and restaurants. Their staff are very accommodating. Tips: - I recommend you avail their airport pickup service to save yourself from trouble. Airport taxi service will rip you off. - Also, you can book your tours for Halong Bay, Sapa, etc through them as they are also a travel agency. It'as cheaper than most of the tours offered around.

Exceptionally Good Staff
The moment I arrived from the hostel's airport transfer I was greeted with a welcome drink. They then explained everything about the hostel and the Hanoi old town. The rooms were clean, the breakfast was great and the service was expetional. I would like to thank the two hostel reception girls for their outstanding service. I highly recommend this hostel.

Budget hostel but with A+ customer service”
The team at Winter Hostel made every effort to make me feel welcome. Before arriving they were attentive to my questions about Halong bay tours. They also made my birthday very special by surprising me with a birthday cake ...which was delicious! All of the staff had a good sense of humour and had a high regard for customer service. The freebies in the room were greatly appreciated. The hot water was good and the bathroom was clean and of a good standard. On a rainy day in Hanoi the movie channel was very good also. The location of the hostel is very central in the old quarter. Last but not least the porters were legends! Without hesitation they lifted my 21kg bag up and down 4 flights of stairs.
