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!

I purchased my long-distance train tickets from Ms Kelly Nguyen several weeks before my arrival in Vietnam. She got it done in a most helpful, efficient manner. My tickets were ready for me as soon as I arrived in Hanoi. The tickets were exactly the lower bunk beds in the soft-sleeper carriage that I wanted. I highly recommend her travel... More

The hostel itself is very simple, as well the room, but I had a very good time here. Sometimes can be a little bit noisy because of some places in the street where they play music but it wasn't that bad. The main point for me was the location and staff. Very good location, a lot of restaurantes and local... More

located in the centre of old quarter, and walkable distance to the nearby attractions. the staffs at the hostel always be there to provide us better services, tour infos and great sharing session of Hanoi culture and lifestyle. Staying in the crowded, noisy area could be a new experience for you...but why not live in the way Hanoi people live.

We arrived in Hanoi, our first stop in Vietnam. The hostel was lovely and brand new as well as cheap drinks and good wifi!!! The couple who own the place helped us plan our trip down Vietnam and spoke very good English. I would recommend this place to all!
