    very good hostel!”

    The hostel is very backpackers oriented (happy hour for drinks, tours, etc.). Comfortable beds, good wifi, delicious breakfast, AC worked well and you can relax in the room and hide from that heat and sweat. In the evenings is quite a party downstairs, but the rooms are quiet.

    Really well equiped, they have nice and beautiful bungalows near the river. We stayed 4 days and really loved the place and the staff, it's run by a super friendly family that makes you feel like home! The place is clean and bathrooms are modern, you can eat there and the food is good (we even had a common dinner with them!)

    The hostel is clean, in the perfect location, comfortable beds, free beer on the afternoon, and the best breakfast you can get. But by far what makes the difference is how friendly the staff were. Specially Lee, Minh and Quin made me feel at home and we laughed a lot! All the best for everyone!

    Good Hostel, but some minor problems”

    The hostel is great - the atmosphere is good, location is nice and we slept well in the rooms. However, we had some problems during the booking since our Agoda booking stated we had to pay less than what they wanted to charge us - they said, the reason is that the exchange rate from dollar to dong is not as good on the street as Agoda, but I don't really care about that since we already had the price shown in dong. Apart from that the staff is helpful and nice and the breakfast is decent.

    The place is great. I accidentally left something back here and was gone for a day. When I came back the staff were very helpful in finding it for me, to the extent of digging through a rubbish bag - apparently house cleaning thought my belongings were trash and threw it on the trash bag.

    Had an awesome time here. Staff are super playful and helped us organise our Vietnam trip from Hanoi to Cat Ba to Tam Coc which was a huge weight off our shoulders. Sim cards are also available at reception for half the price of one you would get at the airport (8$ instead of 16$). Airport transfer was also organised for us (18$) which was awesome in a country we just arrived in. Free beer between 6 and 7pm also made our time great as we could socialise with other travellers and make friends really quickly. It was awesome.

    It is a nice hostel in the middle of old city. The staff is really nice and I was a bit impressed that they remembered my name. I got help with booking a train ticket and it worked like a charm. The room was clean and had a locker under the bed. There was only one thing I didn't like about the place and that was that you didn't get a key to your room. As a woman I don't feel comfortable sleeping alone in a room with a door that is not locked. I had two nights when I was alone in the room. I locked the door and got a wake up call at 5.30 AM when somebody wanted to get in the room. In the end I stayed here on two different occasions during my trip.

    Cheapest dorm in Hanoi”

    Very good hostel with friendly staff. The dorm can host up to 12 people. You have curtains to keep some privacy. Prices for hotels in Hanoi are much more expensive than the rest of the country. For the same price we had double rooms in all the north of Vietnam. Their tour packaging are quite expensive.

    All basic things only, room a bit dark, no lift, welcome drink is plain water, no towel provided, bathroom leftover previous tenant towel, no sound proof. However, location is convenient. many foreigner tourist gather in ground floor for a cup of drink. if you are tight on your budget, this hotel can be consider. If you are in a family, i would recommend some place else.
