        Amazing location great service ”

        Tam helped us with several options for airport transfer before we arrived and after we left she even helped us book a tour and bus transfer. The breakfast was included and you could choose between scrambled or fried eggs, tea or coffee. The location is very good, very central, walking distance to Ho Hoan Kiem lake. And it is situated right across from the 2nd best Pho place in Vietnam.

        Great location, friendly staff”

        Location of the hostel is great. Staff helpful and friendly. Curtains for privacy in the dorm rooms. Beds were fine; mine was separated by a curtain with the neighbor next door. One shower drain was slow, the other one was fine. Toilet situation was okay. Overall, can't beat the value but I haven't stayed in other Hanoi hostels. I would stay again just for location and staff.

        Bring your own SOAP/ Shampoo and Toothbrush and Toothpaste because the Hostel does not provide it. Even soap after you use the toilet. AC in our Room is not working well and need to use electric fan. The staff are very accommodating and good english.

        Stayed here, as I wasn't able to book the OFFICIAL PARTY HOSTEL in Hanoi. Nonetheless, I'm quite happy with my stay. The hostel is quite literally in the middle of the old quarter so the street markets and cafes are just around the corner. If you decide to stay here, the Pho Stall right opposite the hostel offers amazing Pho for dirt cheap. I only had the chance to eat it once, and I wish I had eaten there more. Otherwise the staff are very accommodating and friendly. They will provide you with recommendations and tips based on your preferences.

        You get what you paid for”

        Pros: Free breakfast Convenient location Friendly receptionist I booked the mixed room since it is the cheapest option for travellers like me who arrive in Hanoi at around 1AM and just need someplace to stay prior to checking in to a nice BNB without a 24hr reception. I would say it is ok except that there are people getting it on on the lower bed bunk. I was on the top bunk and I didn't sleep well because the bed frame is shaking. So inconsiderate. FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO FCK, BOOK A MOTEL NOT A DORM. The bathroom and shower are not that clean. But tolerable.

        It has comfortable beds and queit atmosphere. Good place to take a rest. Staffs are kind. They also have some tour programs so you can book a tour, or transportation at reasonable price just from the hostel. It is located at central area : 5min to Hoan kiem lake, 1min to beer street. Also you can find a great rice noodle restaurant right across the hostel.
