comfortable stay”
All in all a good place depending on what you're looking for.There's a happy hour and if you're not part of it, it gets pretty noisy but once people leave for the pub crawl, things settle down. You can hear sound from the hallways quite clearly in the rooms and the doors have a melody that plays every time a door is unlocked. The rooms are clean and have everything you might need including soap, shampoos, tooth brushes and slippers and breakfast is pretty nice.

Very good”
Not bad, but a little disappointed after seeing previous reviews. My standards aren't unrealistic as I've always stayed in hostels on numerous trips for the past 16 years, but Central Backpackers has some work to do on cleanliness. I stayed in a private room which was decently sized and had an ensuite bathroom. It was good, except that there were tiny little bugs all over the bathroom and on my last night a cockroach entered my room from underneath the doorway to the hall. My friend staying in a 6th floor dorm room told me that he could hear rats scampering on the ceiling so if you have a room with a window make sure to close it. The staff are decent and helpful but they tried to charge me after I had already paid through Agoda without checking their system. The person working the night staff a few days ago was awesome and gave my friend a present (shrimp ball chips) to celebrate her birthday. Good common area on the roof with an excellent view of the city and the best thing about this hostel is it's location in the Old Quarter.

Great room, breakfast, and service”
We enjoyed our room with king sized bed (a little on the hard side though), clean bathroom and free breakfast. The staff were incredibly helpful in doing all further travel booking. The area was very convenient for touring the area

Excellent service. Nice and approachable staff. Great people.”
I had to change my reservation for my trip to Sapa, and the staff made the change so easy without any hassle. The tour arranged by the hostel was superb as well. Nice value for the price.

Fine, but not my favorite”
The location is fantastic! Besides that, I wasn't terribly impressed. The beds are rock hard, the walls are thin and it was really noisy at night. The atmosphere is fine if you're a long term traveler and just want to party but for a vacation, it's not the best hostel I've been to. Lots of travelers just camped out sleeping in the lobby, people are crazed over the laughing gas balloons upstairs too... if you're not looking to rage, this might not be your place.
