Great Hostel to meet new friends”

Friendly staff, nice bar and breakfast

Amazing stay at Funky Jungle Hostel, we stayed in a dorm room which was a good opportunity to meet other people. It is a great place to meet people due to the daily pub crawls which start in the bar downstairs with lots of good drinks deals! The staff were fantastic - especially Steve and Hue ( travel desk ) . The tours that you can book at the travel desk are also very nice. You'll probably pay a bit more than across the street, but you certainly get what you pay for. We booked the tour to Sapa, Ha Long Bay with this hostel which was also awesome! Overall, I wouldn't recommend this hostel, as there are many choices that are just as affordable in the area.

Best bed I've slept in, free beer, incredibly social hostel.”

For $5 a night I'm yet to encounter a hostel which represents better value for money than Funky Jungle Hostel. The beds are seriously the best I've slept in whilst travelling, actually better than my bed back home, I never wanted to leave it. The staff are incredibly friendly and the social environment is tip top with free beer, foosball, pool, it really is a great place to socialise and treat as a base to enjoy Hanoi from... they even throw in free breakfast.Wonderful.

We love Funky Jungle hotel, we even stayed again when we stopped in Hanoi for 2 nights before come back home. It''s a great place to meet other travelers. The bar area downstairs has great deals ( Free beer from 6 - 7pm and 8pm until the keg runs out ). The staff was friendly and helpful. The tours were really good. Location is perfect, close to everything! We could definitely recommend this hostel.

Amazing New Hostel”

Great location, Clean dorm , Great breakfast

I stayed in a mixed dorm with my partner which was extremely clean. The western staff is Steve gave me all the advice i needed to travel vietnam and booked me my Halong bay tour 2 days and bus ticket to Sapa and even assisted me in buying a motorbike!...They offer free beer from 6-7pm at the lobby ( Jungle Bar ). The staffs is always ready to assist with any questions or bookings and they even carry your bags up to the room for you .Perfectly located in the Old Quarter also, this is definitely the best value hostel in Hanoi with the most friendly staff!

Great Hostel in Old Quarter”

Great location, Great breakfast, Wifi and friendly staff

NEW, CHEAP...Definitely the best hostel we have ever been to. Very cool atmosphere, really friendly staff. The location is very good - in the old quarter near everything. The beds are very comfy and they change the sheets everyday which is so nice. The bar area downstairs has great deals ( Free Breakfast, Free beer, Free pool table + foosball !) and it was very easy to meet lots of people and make lots of friends. Awesome backpacker community. Stay here, you won't be disappointed.

Awesome hostel”

We stayed here for a couple days, as soon as we entered the building we felt that the staff was very open and inviting, and tried to make our stay as smooth as possible without any hassle. The beds in the dorm room were great, haven't had a bad night's sleep in this hostel, and the breakfast in the morning, although basic, was a welcoming sight in the morning after enjoying all the free beers the previous night. They offer 3 kegs of beer per night, for an hour at 6 o'clock, and again at 8:30pm until the kegs are all empty. The staff speaks very good English, and can assist you from getting your sim card if you're a new arriver, to booking tours all over Vietnam. They are very welcoming and warm towards everybody including each other. At night, everybody is sitting in the common room having fun and chatting with one another. Food can also be ordered here, which they buy from outside and serve to you to make life easy. Excellent stay for backpackers, as every night you get the opportunity to meet new people. And as mentioned before, they offer great assistance in trying to get your itinerary for Vietnam sorted out by the best of their knowledge. In conclusion, I would recommend this hostel to everybody who wants to have a good time, and who wants to make new friends. While still having an excellent stay. Even though the hostel is relatively new, the quality of the service and facilities are up there: pool table, table football, a bar, public bathrooms on the ground floor, and fans everywhere.

Good Vibes”

I've stayed here for a few night to take a break from traveling. The down stairs has pads of sofas for relaxing and meeting me people, the dorm was clean with comfy beds and with on shower and toilet. Breakfast was included which wasn't just eggs and bread for once. In the even there was free beer so people gather down stair for that, which I felt was a really good touch as I'm a solo traveler and find it hard to meet people sometimes this just made it so worth while choosing this hostel. Me and someone I met did the sapa tour together, which was incredible they gave us loads of information, stored our big backpacks for free. The tour bus picked us up from the hostel and dropped us back right out side. Next time I'm in Hanoi I will be coming back here

The best hostel in a 3 month trip.”

Great location, friendly staffs, clean dorms and great bar

New Hostel. Location was great in Ma May Str, close verything, had free beer from 6-7 and complimentary breakfast was awesome. Breakfast is one of the best in a hostel I have stayed in!! A lot of tours you can book on at great prices! Staff are friendly and helpful too! Dorm rooms are clean, the beds are nice comfy with actual duvets and pillows. So so much value for money and the best hostel I've stayed in.

Best choice if you travel on a short budget”

Right in the heart of Old Quarter. Close to bars and clubs, but still very quiet. The mattrasses and service are not mind-blowing but considering the price it is all very good. The breakfast is very good. One of the cheapest Hotels that i have been to ...but by faaaaar NOT one of the worst! I would come again and recommend it to friends who travel on a short budget!

The atmosphere is relaxed but everyone is up to party. With a pool table. Bar . Beds are super comfotable. FREE beer everyday from 6-7pm and again 8:30pm. They have a lot of different tours to Sapa and Halong bay and other places. The staff are very helpful and freindly. ( Charlie is the best ). Highly recommended.

Good but not for me”

I stayed there 3 nights and we did not have any water in my room for 2 of the 3 days I was there. The water was apparently cut off in the whole street for a few hours those days but my room being on the top floor the pressure was not sufficient to get our water flowing when the entire hostel had it back. Also I didn't like the vibe, too much of a party zone. I went to Hanoi to visit the city and was one of the very few that got up in the morning, the rest seemed to be recovering from the previous night. If like me, you're not much of a party goer, better avoid this location.

Amazingly friendly staff, always there to help and meet your needs - don't be scared to ask to change something as if they can they will. The tour to Halong Bay (2 days 1 night) was really good and similar price but Tam Coc was more expensive so just check stuff out first. Breakfast was great everyday! A lot more food than I had expected. Overall, really satisfied and I would recommend this place if you don't mind a bit of noise from the parties downstairs.
