      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!

      Not really a party hostel”

      Which is a good thing, imo. Stayed on the fourth floor, which was quiet at night. The ground lobby and bar is more of a place to hang out than to party. The free beer during certain periods is nice. The breakfast is great, with plenty of options to choose from. I had to print quite a lot of documents for my Chinese visa. Some of the staff were willing to help, some less so. All in all, recommended.

      Beware of bed bugs!”

      We stayed in a private room on the fourth floor for two night right before flying back home. On the second night we found huge bedbugs in our bed. They did immediately give us some beds in a dorm room and apologized, but as I can understand from the other reviews, this is a general problem in this hostel. Definitely not okay! We have them in all our clothes and now have to freeze or hot wash everything from our bags, just to not infest our home with them. Such a bad experience.

      It's a party hostel, location is good their common area is always full, you have free beer and a pool table and staff is friendly too, dorm are quiet small with beds almost next to each other so if you are looking even for a little privacy it's not there, but rooms are quiet with no noice from outside, overall good experience

      Perfect for Backpackers on budget!”

      Took around 9minutes to walk to the giant river and around 5-6 minutes with a skateboard, plenty of places to eat I also saw some market stand where they would sell clothes and food. The bad part is there's no AC but at that pricepoint it was a nobrainer for me.

      Worst hostel I've been in sea”

      Pro: location Cons: if you're looking bedbugs infested private rooms and rooms that are broken in that's your best choice in town. Staff was rude and unhelpful. Didn't care that there was bedbugs at all in the first room or that while I was visiting the second room someone was actually breaking in the bathroom window!!!

      Impolite Staff”

      Staff at lobby should review their attitude. Travelling is the antidote to ignorance, if cannot travel then meeting up so many foreigners stopping should also be an opportunity to open up minds and learn to become a better person.

      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

      Really great!”

      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.

      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.

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.

      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.

      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.

      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.
