    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 backpackers ”

    Perfect little backpackers in the centre of Hanoi. It’s just down a quiet backstreet which has loads of personality. We stayed in a private room and it was great value for money. The breakfast was good and even made it as a takeaway the morning we left for Sapa. They have proper bia Hoi (local beer) which is fantastic and so cheep at 15p a glass!

    We had a great time there!”

    The room was clean and very comfortable. Aircon was strong and quiet! Wifi connection was very good and fast! The toilet was very clean and well-maintained. The staffs were all friendly and helpful!! We have enjoyed our stay there! The only issue is there is no lift and we stayed at 5th floor. However, the staff offered to carry our luggage at check-in/out which was fantastic!

    Good choice in old quarter”

    Friendly & helpful staffs to welcome & support me anytime. Despite hostel, the accommodation space is comfortable and has its own style. On the other hand, it is inconvenient when only 2 bathrooms (toilet & shower per bathroom) for 10 beds in a dorm room. And, i don't like the moment I hear some awkward sound from bathroom while i'm in my bed :D

    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.

    I like the location as it is quiet and relaxing. The staff were friendly and attentive. And the breakfast was really tasty. The only issue I had was the climbing up to the sixth floor without elevator.

    Located just nearby to St. Joseph's Cathedral, coffee shops, cafes and restaurants. I would like to say, "JUST PERFECT LOCATION" The hotel itself is clean and provides you great hospitality. Good service and friendly staff especially Ms. Nguyen, she was extremely friendly. One more thing, the breakfast is superb you can even order from the menu.

    Clean & Easy”

    I booked to stay here for a couple nights & then it actually ended up being my main point in Hanoi when coming back from Sapa so stayed an extra 2nights. Perfect location within the Old Quater, everything is walking distance. I loved it because it was close enough to all the street food and bars but far enough that it wasn’t too noisey. staff friendly too.

    Nice clean dorm room. It is in Old Quarters close to the Cathedral and Kiem Lake. People were fairly respectful and quiet though because it is a dorm, you should get earplugs if you are a light sleeper. Nice breakfast options in the morning.

    Good but not the best”

    Everything is good except the social life at this Hostel. I mean that a lot of hostels in this area offer free alcool from 6 to 6:30 and it really help to connect with people especially when you travel by yourself. Unfortunately i had difficulties to meet people in this hostels. If you want to meet people while staying in this part of the city, i would recommend Old Quarter View Hostel. If you don’t want to meet people and talk a lot, i would recommend this one.

    Great air conditioner and bunks”

    The best part about this place is that the beds are super private and the room is cold. The breakfast is also really good! If you're looking to meet people though, this is not the place. Plus, their staff is rather pushy on tours and they are more expensive through them than Lilly's down the block (as I found out from other people who booked the same tour as me). Overall for the price though, Id highly recommend!

    Very clean hostel, the nicest that I have stayed in in Vietnam. Well worth the price!”

    The only downside is that there is no elevator and the balcony to the outside is locked at all times so smokers will have to go all the way down to the front. It’s not a problem if your a non-smoker or if your on a lower floor but I was placed on the sixth floor and it was a bit of a hassle.
