Dirty and uncomfortable

Didn't enjoy our stay. The room was dirty, smelly and very loud. They never told us when breakfast was served and refused to give us breakfast at 10:30 because it was over. My friend got pink eye from sleeping on the pillow and they didn't have pillow cases. We only stayed one night

Fine 7.50/night

Price, location, English
As a budget travellers I've had some pretty basic hotels. This is NOT the worst by a long shot. For $7.50 I got a private room (dirty walls, door), a bed with linen (clean. enough), private bathroom with hot water, cable TV (CNN,BBC,HBO), and AC. And breakfast inc. Hey, what more can you ask!

Beware of scams!!”
We booked our room through the website, but once we got there the girl of the hostel said that wasn't the price and refused to give us the price. Even though I had the reserservation in my email. Breakfast is included, but not recommended. They also try to screw you over with tours ''making a good price''

Great location but ugly rooms

Location, breakfast, staff
The hotel does not deserve two stars. Room was dingy. Window was 2cm from the hotel next door so no sunlight. The bed sheets were horribly stained ALL OVER! The bathroom stank and there was no window so it was mouldy. However the breakfast was included, they made it to order so was fresh but there is no restaurant or anything. We sat and ate under the stairs. The staff were helpful and friendly but not very knowledgable of the local area. Lastly the location was IDEAL. The street was incredibly at night giving you a real insight into the locals lives. Wouldn't stay here again

Perfect value for small amount of money

Perfectly located inHanoi Old Quarter, good value for money, friendly staff offering good quality information
We didn't spend much time in the hotel - we used it mainly for sleeping. However, we cannot find anything to be angry with. It was clean, quite spacious with big beds. The double room with TV, access to the internet and breakfast included cost less than 10$ but I think it was some kind of bargain.

Notre chambre n'était pas disponible, nous on était déplace en scooter dans une autre hôtel du même nom, dans le même cartier, tout c est bien déroule, par contre pas de fenêtre dans les chambres, ce n est pas terrible
