Last year I was traveling on a bicycle through South-East Asia. At the end of my trip I ended up in the Hanoi Gecko 3 Hostel. I ended up working in Hanoi for about 9 months, and never thought of leaving the hostel. It always felt like getting home after a day at work. Everything is being cleaned daily and... More

The bunk beds are huge... More

Caution to anyone traveling from the airport into the old quarter: this hotel has a deal with taxi drivers to take you to this hostel instead of the other, better respected Backpackers Hostel. You will be driven there, where the host, who goes by Picachu (ridiculous, I know) opens the door, grabs your bags before you can object, then lies... More
