We were just passing by and dropped in for a happy hour beer, which were 2 for 1. We had a couple of beers and some free roasted peanuts. Had a great seat watching the world go by. The owner said that she had just started the business. She was very friendly. We can't comment on the accommodation.

This is not a good hostel. First of all there are no real doors. Downstairs is a pub which never closes I think, there is always loud music. You don't have a key or anything since the door is a plastic sliding door. They do offer lockers, however they are small. The rooms are really small, as is the bathroom... More

Stayed for 3 nights. The prices are as cheap as it gets in Hanoi, but the facilities are pretty basic. You get a bed and a towel and a locker. That was enough for me, though. Upsides: owners are nice, try to help and not really after that one extra dollar that everyone in Hanoi dreams to snatch from you.... More

On the first night, I came back to the hostel around 10pm. Once I came, I put my things on the bed and went to take shower. It took me around 3-4 minutes. While I was in a bathroom I heard door sliding but I thought that someone was on the wrong floor by mistake. Anyway I didn’t think much,... More

Money went missing here! To prove we weren't mistaken, we photographed locker contents, upon getting back from city everything in locker was different. Proof that someone there is abusing trust. Don't let cheap prices fool you! Bad image for Hanoi, which is an otherwise amazing place with much better hostels than this!

This hostel is very average, the service is terrible and everyone in our dorm had money stolen out of their lockers. We also had clothes lost when they did our laundry. The showers/bathroom did not get cleaned during our entire stay and the linen and towels were not changed between guests.

In a good location in the old quarter. the room we hadwas dirty, the free beer on sunday on the roof was excellent. We ate out as we could get much better value elsewhere. The place was busy and the internet difficult to access, overall not bad but we experienced better value in the 7 hotels we stayed in on... More
