                The greatest hostel”

                That is the best hostel I've ever stayed in Hanoi. Everything is perfect. It is on foreiner street. And have a small sitting room outside, u can communicate with all people there. Because it is small so u're easy to know everone in hostel. Manager girl and staffs are so nice, friendly and helpful. If u are in Hanoi, u should stay here and enjoy.

                Great location, staffs were really helpful and friendly. Bathrooms were clean, wifi was strong and good air conditioner in rooms. The beds were clean and comfortable. The hostel is on bar street but it's quite peace and quiet. There is the nice area for communicating. it is small so you get to know all other guests quickly. Even they have a kettle and you can drink hot water all day. For sure I will come back. Love this hostel a lot.

                So it’s dawn this ally next to all the busiest clubs in Hanoi but weirdly a really chill solo traveler sort of place. U can hear the music a little bit but it’s not an issue. The staff are really friendly and will tell u were all the best egg coffee and matcha is. It’s so cheap don’t expect the Ritz, saying that it is a very nice place.

                It's either good or bad. The hostel is in a small alley that it's a bit difficult to find. I booked a bed in an all female room but ended up staying with 3 guys. The place is convenient with hot water, mirrors, comb, and even hair dryer The owner isn't talkative or friendly but she was actually helpful

                Near the clubs, can still hear a bit of acceptable noise, clean and spacious washroom for toilet and shower. The bed looks clean, but I soon had a bad skin allergy on my face and body while sleeping. Some will come back after mid-night (maybe after clubbing), so the noise of opening and closing doors keeps waking you up.

                This place is a total mess, dirty inside and outside the building. since they only accept "payment at hotel", nobody can check if the guests actually checked in or not, so their friends and family from anywhere can book and leave them reviews with score of 10 at no cost.

I told her about the bedbugs and showed her and she said you can just sleep on the ground. Would not recommend this at all.
