Only stayed for one night, but loved it :) Had some good chats and got lots of tips on what to do in the area, where to go next etc from the sweetheart at the bar(so sorry I don't remember your name!!), and just generally a great place to stay in Hanoi!

Very nice relaxed hostel in the crazy old quarter of hanoi. Good service and Tong, the manager, is a legend he'll help you out with anything you need. There's a great coffee shop accross the road as well as a nice rooftop for breakfast or drinks!
