Best Agoda deal in Hanoi, absolute steal! ”
Hadn’t used Agoda since in Australia, thought I’d give it a punt after a very hot and busy room in the VBH two doors down. On offer for $6 AUD a night which is a fantastic deal. Stayed in the ten bed mixed, each bunk has its own privacy curtain, with power points and reading light next to the bed. The room is constantly air conditioned, with two fans to circulate it round the room - a great addition after the 40c Hanoi heat. My mate who is 6ft 4 had no issue with the length of his bed. WiFi available in the dorm rooms, a little intermittent at times but nothing that caused an issue. As with many places in Vietnam, shower and toilet in the same room but not a problem as very clean and good locks. 2 “wet rooms” in the 10 bed share. We’d already booked on to a Ha Long Bay tour, enjoyed it so much came straight back after the tour. Bar (fridge) is reasonably priced, big Dasani water @10k, Hanoi bottled beer @30k. Free breakfast, as with other hostels in Vietnam, some form of eggs and a baguette. (Bacon/sausage available for meat eaters) Tea, Coffee and fresh fruit on offer as well as cooked. Vietnamese breakfast option available too but didn’t have it. Reasonably priced food available on full menu throughout the day too. 10 minute walk from beer corner. Cannot recommend this hostel enough, good on you Luxury Backpacker Hanoi
Short story: book this place. Some more detail... You'll find all the essential facilities provided, and at a higher standard than I've found at any other backpackers. These include: comfy, spacious beds, huge under-bed lockers (free of charge), two bathrooms per dorm, complimentary breakfast (7:00 - 9:30), fast laundry, and a wealth of tour and transport services. Cleanliness: couldn't be better, really. The rooms/bathrooms are cleaned daily, around 10am, and the lobby/dining room is always clean and tidy. Note: you can have your bedding and towels changed daily, you need only ask. Service: among the exceptional few, in my experience; warm, welcoming, friendly, attentive but not overbearing - happy to help. There are plenty of staff around during the day, so it's never difficult getting info, advice, or making bookings. Sam, Hien, James, and Amy will be your main points of contact. They're lovely people, and have have helped me alot with good, honest advice and flexibility to my plans. Location: great for travellers - Hoan Kiem/Old Quarter, close to everything. I walk everywhere I need to go in the area, Grab-bikes are cheap for further journeys. Far too many great places for your food/drinks in the area, I won't even attempt a list, but special mention goes to the Bun Cha vendor on the same street (more on a side street) as the backpackers - right next to a hair salon. Probably the best Bun Cha I've had, certainly the cheapest (30,000đ), they're only open from morning til midday/1 - a local favourite. So, top spot - you won't be disappointed.
Good location, nice beds”
The hostel has a good location in Hoan Kiem district not far from the lake, in a nice cosy street. The beds are good. A large space between the mattress and the wall allows to put some personal belongins. There are big lockers under the beds. The negative point is the bathroom. Doesn't correspond to the pictures. The sink is not in the bathroom. And there is a heavy plastic curtain just behind the door which is unoleasant to touch and complicates the access to the bathroom. The guy on the reception proposes only tours but they also have bus tickets and even sim cards. I wouldn't say that it is luxury but it is allright
Great Service from Devoted Staff”
I used Luxury Backpackers as my "base" in Hanoi and I'm so glad I did. The location is ideal, facilities are clean, the beds comfortable, the free breakfast tasty and filling. But what really stands out is the staff - they go above and beyond to make your stay great. They always offered to carry my bag to my room when I arrived (it's a little heavy), always asked what my plans are and where I'm traveling, and were happy to help whenever I needed it. For example, a few days before arriving at the hotel I had to book a bus online to Sapa to make sure I would have space. Even though I didn't book through the hotel, one of the staff, Liam, insisted on calling the company and made sure they confirmed my booking. They also gave me breakfast early because my bus left before they opened the breakfast buffet! Thank you Luxury Backpackers!
Best performance per price”
Lone travelers will find the place wondrous and convenient. The hostel find itself in the heart of Hanoi and it take no more than 8 mins to reach Hoan Kiem Lake and streets of the Old Quarter on foot. Around the hostel there is all kinds of convenient stores, inexpensive food stalls as well as expensive restaurants. The staffs are helpful, professional and responsive. The beds are large and comfortable with hooks for clothes, locker and boxes on the wall to put your things on. You are supplied a large towel and can it freely renew for each day. In the dorm room there is two large air-conditioners, large sidewalk, two toilets with warm water and shampoo. Breakfast is also plentiful with selective main dish, soup, noodle, fruit, orange / lemon juice, tea and coffee. I stayed in the hostel for 2 weeks and have nothing to complain about.
Thank you so much for your staying with us. We hope to have another chance to welcoming and serving you and your friend to our hostel again.
The best privacy dorm room ever. ”
It's a great hostel, Everything was excellent. Well maintained, Great location and Very clean. I stayed in a dorm room but I was feeling like I was using a private room. There was plenty of space to put personal stuff, each bed has curtains, You can get 100% Privacy!!! Which was just great! The room was big itself has windows (balcony). Breakfast also good enough, nice selection. I stayed few days in the other hostel (a bit more $ though) there wasn't as nice as here. When I moved to this place, at the first I only booked for 3night, and I extended another 3 nights and 4 more nights again! hahahaha Room is perfectly clean, House keeping every day, They provided a big fresh body towel every day (Best body towel ever!) and I really appreciated to James, Hien, Eric and Huong. They were lovely, really friendly also helpful. Thanks Overall, It was a fantastic experience in Vietnam. stayed at Luxury Backpackers hostel just made my days in Hanoi
Very NIce Place for Treveler”
It was great experience in "luxury backpackers" I arrived at very late night and stayed domitory room for 2 days. Despite late check-in, Staffs helped me to escort to check-in. And all days I have stay are perfect about their kind favor. They smiled to all guest and explained nice place for traveler. also especially the man called "James" is very nice staff. he was asked some information abou HANOI from many guest, at that time he courteously answered. I appreciate that guy so much. and If you want to hang out with staff, Do not hesitate. they will join with you, I also went to "Ta hien" beer street wit "James and Erick", What a Nice guys haha If I come again in HANOI, I will stay this hostel, there is no reason. haha
Great quality hostel !”
I had a great stay at Luxury Backpackers. It is very well located in the Old Quarter, close to the lake, to nice restaurants, etc. The dormitory is very nice and clean, you really have your own space in your bed, there are 2 bathrooms, and individual lockers to leave your things during the day. Breakfast was good and staff was nice. I would choose Luxury Backpackers again, but would not book a day-trip (to Tam Coc) with them again as it was a bit diappointing (compared to a day trip the day before that was with a different organisation and better quality). Would recommend to stay there for your nights in Hanoi !
Luxury Backpackers is the chillest spot in town!”
Stayed here for nearly two weeks over the course of my month in Vietnam and enjoyed every moment of it. I tried to stay somewhere else in Hanoi to get an experience on the other side of the Old Quarter, but came back to Luxury Backpackers only a couple days later. This is practically my second home. The AC blasts, the rooms smell delightful (like essential oils), the showers and facilities are always clean, the guys working here are awesome, breakfast is yummy, you can exchange your towel every day at the front desk, the list goes on... But really here's the standout feature — the beds are comfy AF and the linens are really soft cotton and make for a really easy sleeping experience. Top or bottom bunk doesn't really matter because there are stairs up to the top bunks (rather than a ladder). Each bed is super private and cozy with a light and power outlet. Would recommend taking your laundry down the street for washing though because they charge quite a bit more here.
Great value ”
I visited in November 2019 - I stayed in a 10 person dorm. The privacy curtains made all the difference! The beds were big and each bunk had shelving, hanging hooks, and a night light with power point. It was really quiet and I was never kept awake. They served awesome coffee with breakfast. The staff was so helpful- I couldn't find a power adapter for my camera charger and one of the staff members went and bought one for me! This hostel is right around the corner from Hoan Kiem Lake and st Joseph's Cathedral (and pretty much every attraction to see in Hanoi). restaraunts everywhere. Highly recommend!
This is my first solo travel in Hanoi and this hotel (Luxury Backpacker Hotel) provided me the ease access to everywhere and transportation. The staffs are very friendly and assistive. Dormitory facilities and room are excellent and provides enough space and privacy. Will definitely be back here for more hanoi travel experiences.
We were only in luxury backpackers for a night but we wish it were for longer! We were a group of three and loved our private room. The room was spacious, the bathroom was well-equipped and the location was awesome! We went to a local bar a couple of doors down from the hostel and stayed there for a couple of hours which made our last night in Hanoi memorable. The hostel also arranged airport pick up and drop off for us which we really appreciated. The breakfast was also awesome and we were surprised it was even included! Overall - an awesome stay!
Really great stay!”
Had an amazing stay at the Luxury Backpackers in Hanoi!! The staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful, and I loved having chats with them about Hanoi and their recommendations were perfect! The rooms was a great size, very nice bathroom and so quiet, I slept so well all three nights! Definitely recommend and will stay again next time I visit this amazing city!

1st time in Hanoi”
Great place to stay. Near to Hoan Kiem lake and the old quarter. We just walked around exploring. Checking in took quite a while though as the previous guest checked out late. Breakfast is free the first night. You can book many tours from the desk too. You can refill your water bottle downstairs in the kitchen anytime. The family suite room was gorgeous - we had a peep even though ours was the double room. If you're getting a tour to Halong Bay the next day, you might be the last one picked up - we were. The room was small but comfortable and clean. The bathroom was spacious. Facilities in the room are more than expected for a budget hotel - kettle, hairdryer, towels. We got the highest floor and it was pretty quiet at night.
Wonderful staffs (thanks to Mr.Xinh and James :)*)”
The Staff were amazing, thanks for your kind reception and it was very comfortable to stay this hostel during my vacation. Always doing their best to make your stay as good as it can be. Actually I went to this place to stay again yesterday. The wifi was really good here. Clean, extremely quiet :) The location was great - There are many nice restaurants and hole in the wall near this hostel. (pho 10, Bunbonambo, beer streets, cafe22, Pizza 4Ps, Quan An Ngon, cong cafe, cafe Giang etc.), and club as well. The St Joseph Cathedral and the Hoan Kiem Lake are both nearby. Don't hesitate to stay here :) Everything was perfect.

Great Location, Best Staff”
Luxury Backpackers is a fantastic hotel. It’s in a great central location for tourists on a bustling side street that is closed off to cars. The staff are incredibly helpful and assisted us with setting up some great tours of Ninh Binh and Halong Bay at reasonable prices. Breakfast is superb with local and western options. There is also a banh mi stand which is super cheap and delicious. Beers and drinks are also very cheap. Thank you James and Hien for such a great stay!
Brilliant backpackers ”
It really is. Basically, Luxury Backpackers provide all the necessary services and facilities - just at a higher standard. If you've been travelling a while, accustomed to the ups and downs of hosteldom, you'll be pleased to find this place. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped, the bathrooms are clean, the breakfast is great value (try the egg fried rice and/or noodle soup), the staff are so friendly and exceedingly helpful - they'll help you with bookings and advice for just about everything in the way of tours, transport and activities, just ask. I took the 12-bed dorm, which has to be the best dormitory I've ever stayed in, but I hear their private rooms are deluxe! What's left to say...
It was super nice hostel!!”
From Korea, I have been several hostel and here is one of the best hostel I've ever visited. Just near downtown hoan kiem and not noisy James who works here is really kind So,If you guys have a chance to come hanoi, Just stay here!
