      comfortable bed,but don't take their tour”

      good location,near to the central, easily catch a bus (no.86) to airport at the bus stop just few steps from the hostel. Everything is basic, old room doors and lockers. overall is fine but we're greatly disappointed by the sapa tour package we booked via the hostel. Make sure you ask for sapa express bus or sapa shuttle bus as these two provide good service. We we're given 3 different packages ()Minimal effort given by the tour. First, when they said they're gonna pick you up from sapa bus station to your hotel, it means the guide will walk you there! (we were not aware of this and luckily we don't have heavy luggage) Secondly, during the tour / tracking, there's NO explanation. It makes no difference to do the track by ourselves than paying for the tour!

      Good value for money, good location to catch Express Bus 86 to airport. ”

      Stayed very briefly in this hostel (checked in 10.30pm and checked out 5.50am the next morning), hence my review is just my personal opinion during my stay here and may not be representative to what this hostel can offer. Very good location to catch the Express bus 86 to the airport (the bus stop is just down the road in south direction to 23 Hang Tre). Very good value for money with booking in Agoda, comes with free breakfast though I didn't get to taste it due to early check-out. Booked and paid in advance (through Agoda) for female dorm but was put into mixed-dorm. Only one bathroom on my floor with a total of 16 beds. Bed is very comfy ( thick mattress, just nice firmness) with comforter. My dorm bed comes with individual light and socket, but no curtain or shelf. Locker is provided in the room. This is the only hostel in my entire 8 days trip that insists to keep my passport even though payment has been made.

      It was fine, except the dorm rooms beds are literally touching so would have been awkward had I not been travelling with my boyfriend. Only one bathroom for like 20 people. Breakfast was fine, toast and eggs and coffee, wifi didn’t work in the room that well which is fine. Location is okay, few things around! Fine for a night in hanoi

      Chaos”

      We booked last minute and were really happy with the location. But the check in was a disaster. First we got the wrong room and then they ask us many times if we want to extend our stay, cause they thought we booked just one night. So we had to repeat many times that we booked two nights, which was really annoying. The facilities are okay, but I saw a cockaroach in my bed, which was really disgusting. Besides that the atmosphere was really welcoming and you had everything you need.

      Male Dormitory Bed Shared Bathroom
      Stayed 1 night in January 2017

      Did the job. Good value for money”

      For the price it was fine. I think it was 5 bucks. Beer was free at 6-7pm ( it was horrible ) but hey beggars can't be choosers . Free breakfast and coffee. Staff were friendly. Definitely served a purpose and that was a cheap bed for the night!

      Happy hour and happy staff”

      Great place to stay if you want to have a good time, socialise and enjoy free drinks from 6-7pm every night. The staff were a great laugh, always smiling and helpful. Just watch out for Hanh she's a crazy one... only joking. She was great. Anyways, go check it out! Peace! x

      Cheap hostel in the Old Quarter ”

      The bunks were not sturdy. The mattress sat on a thin wooden slab. Pros: We had already checked out of our hotel and needed a place to shower and rest before we caught a night bus. So we booked for 1 night a set of bunks for the two of us for AU$9. We did not stay overnight. The communal shower on L2 was spacious. It has a toilet, shower and basin inside. There was also an outside basin. The reception person did mention breakfast. I'm guessing this is included in the bed rate? Cons: It has basic facilities. No real vibe happening here in my observation. Smelly and dirty travellers. After all, this is a cheap hostel and it will attract these types of travellers. There is no elevator.

      A nice place to stay. The 2 receptionists Ninh & Nina made me feel very welcome. This is important when you arrive in a new city.
