    Good Value for Money. Good Location. Nice Staff”

    The value for this hostel is good with this very good price. First, the location is good. It is close to the lake and the puppet theatre. There are many restaurants around, too. So I could still find food at 10:30pm-11pm. The breakfast was nice, with egg, bread, a hot dish, coffee and tea. I only stayed there for one night but I felt that there was enough bathrooms and toilets. So far I stayed there for one night. So I did not meet all the staff members. But this staff member (Rosy, aka Autumn Water => Vietnamese name translated directly to Chinese) was very friendly. She helped me get to the water puppet theatre, recommended me where to find Vietnamese food nearby (and in Hai Phong, where I went to next). I particularly thanked her for telling me the nearest bus station to Hai Phong was Giap Bat Bus station and for telling me that there were some bad people trying to sell me bus tickets outside the bus station with a higher price or another buses.

    Friendly staff (especially Thien), bus ticket is cheaper than sapa express. Good location. But Do not choose 20 dorm. You'd better 10dorm. Just 1dollor but there is a huge gap between them. 20dorm is literary hell

    Was planning to stay for just 1 night at Chien hostel but ended up staying for 3 nights as it was awesome, very clean , beds were comfy, location was right in the center of Hanoi old town and the staff were super friendly and very helpful (especially Thiên who worked on the bar, the smiliest person ever, I’m convinced he even smiles in his sleep!) would 100% recommend this place to anyone who is looking to stay in Hanoi.

    Nice social hostel ”

    The hostel is in an excellent location near the old part of Hanoi. The dorms are clean and each bed has a curtain and a decent locker. The staff were really friendly and all the shared facilities were kept well. The rooftop bar is a great place to meet people and has a nice view out onto the cathedral.

    Avarage”

    The hostel had a nice rooftop bar and was great to meet people. But the staff was rude. I asked to change beds because I was sleeping next to a very creepy person who i found touching himself at night but reception seemed to not care. In general i think staff was careless about pretty much everything the whole stay.

    No hairdryer! Nice location & staff”

    Pros: location and staffs are helpful. Helped us book a 2day1night tour at ya long bay $85 per pax and refund us the second night fee. (Price is as average for the 2star level, not cheaper or more expensive) Bar is nice as well, happy hour is cool! Cons: no hairdryer ..... asked about the reason ( they used to have , but broken soon...) can still provide the one with deposit??? No hair dryer is not acceptable....

    I would never book somewhere else. ”

    The dorm and all other facilities were clean and the staff was pretty helpful, friendly and welcoming. There was a breakfast buffet included in the price with fried egg, toast, noodles or fried rice but also some veggies as well as watermelon and banana. There was water, tea and coffee with fresh milk for serving. It is great. There is a lot of space for sitting, relaxing, reading or working. There is an elevator and you can order drinks and warm dishes all day long. The hostel also works as a tour agency offering tours to Halong Bay, Sapa and other destinations. The location is nice. The hostel is located opposite to the St.-Joseph’s Cathedral and close to Hoan Kiem Lake. The environment may be busy but I didn’t even hear the Cathedral’s clock or the traffic inside the dorm that is obviously well isolated. On the rooftop there is some space to hang up laundry. I stayed in 4 different hostels in Hanoi, Chien Hostel fit best for me.

    Staff are really nice and great, he helped to book a tour to Ha Long Bay in a great price. But I couldn’t really sleep at night, as the room had too many ppl, over 10 I guess, they were walking in and out and talking which was very hard to get sleep and the church bell rang in the morning too. Overall, it’s nice place to stay, bed and bathroom are clean, and they have two rounds of free beer in their rooftop bar which is cool!
