Above & beyond”
This was our second stay in the old quarter and for only one night as we passed through on a journey south. On arrival the staff were welcoming and spoke fluent English. The room was large, comfortable and was served with good wifi. On the whole a perfect stay but the following day we didn't leave until 10pm. I had a FaceTime interview set up at 4pm and wanted to use the lobby wifi as it had proved to be good on the previous night. Unfortunately there was a staff meeting at the time my call was due so I asked if there was anywhere I might be able to sit quietly. The girl on reception checked and let me use a room that wasn't booked for the night. And I got the job ;) I haven't seen this level of service anywhere in Asia. The staff make the place and are beyond perfect.

Runned down facilities!”
The location of the hotel is good and the staff very attentive. But the facility's look runned down and the room is noting special. The hotel is overrated by far!!!

Must Helpful Staff Ever”
We went in to 3 Stones because they were advertising heavy discounts off tour packages. The staff person helped us select a tour for Halong Bay without trying to push us into higher brackets. We then decided to stay at 3 Stones on our return. Staff were once again amazing at helping us sort out problems we had with our tour to Sapa which we had purchased elsewhere. The room was large, but quite basic. They were about to start major renovations as we were leaving, so rooms should be in great condition shortly.

Lovely stay”
After going to two previous hostels that I had to leave due to loud drilling, I was so happy to arrive at Three Stones. Well located, super friendly staff, and above all, quiet. They even held my luggage for several days while I visited Saps. I really enjoyed my stay here.

Good location and nice staff”
But the rooms where not as clean as you would expect from a hostel. In the night we had insects sleeping with us and the air con was struggling to keep the room at a decent temperature. Other than the hostel was good.

Great Hostel with nicest staff!”
Stayed for 3 nights in the girls dorm which seemed to be newly furnished. From all the hostels I stayed in so far this one was by far the cleanest (room+bathroom were cleaned everyday)! As a backpacker, the pancakes for breakfast were quite luxurious for me and kept me full for a long time. There are also other choices for breakfast but I always stuck to my pancakes. The best thing about the hostel is by far the staff, which was always extremely welcoming and friendly! One of the girls working there approached me an talked to me for a while when I was waiting in the lobby and I found our conversation really interesting. I had the feeling that all the staff is really putting an effort in making the guests feel comfortable - and it worked!

Great location”
Location, breakfast and staff
This hostel was priced very well however I found the bathroom was very dirty. My room had a leaky toilet so the floor was always wet. The bathtub looked very old no unclean. Although, it is in a great location (old quarter) and lots of great restaurants around. The staff was extremely kind and helpful!

Okay for a few nights”
Good wifi, free breakfast, good location
Ok stay, we were out both days so didn't really stay in the room for long. The shower didn't reach the hook so we had to kneel down in the bath tub to shower. The bed was very uncomfortable and we usually sleep in very low price hotels, but very uncomfortable. We had a private room on the top floor. There isn't a lift, but that didn't bother us. Was ok for money.

I DO NOT recommend this hotel at this price!”
Staff carried our bags to the top floor, scrambled eggs for breakfast
Old lumpy mattress, dirty room, carpets threadbare and very stained, patchy walls, bathroom ceiling falling down, sketchy door in our room leading to outside roof w/graffiti etc. Meager breakfast w/watered down oj. I was super glad I only booked one night and would not return. it was the worst place I've stayed in all of Asia.

Decent place with kind staff”
Location was good. Price was very good. Helpful staff giving advice on how to get to different places in Hanoi and where we headed to next.
Our stay was good. Only criticism would be that in the dorm we were in their was only one bathroom for 8 people with shower and toilet in the same room. However if that bothers you there are private rooms in the hostel too :) met some nice people there too!
