We spent a couple night here while in hanoi. The place is simple and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. Call to book first to get a better price. The dooms are nice and all beds have own light and plugs, shower etc all clean. The location is slightly away from the older part of the city but it's... More

The hostel is a very basic hostel with standard Asian bathroom facilities. The air con only operates during night time (staff keeps remote so you cannot turn it on). They offer airport transfer for $12 which is cheaper than at the other two hostel in Hanoi that I've stayed at ($15).

Stayed here for 2 nights after visiting Sapa. Arrived at 4am and have to wake the staff up as the gate was closed (for security reason I guess). Though still buzzed with sleepiness, he was very helpful and careful so not to interrupt other guests, while directing and helping me. Other day staff were also being very friendly (At times... More

Great accomodation for back-packers, particularly the dormatories in which I stayed. It was nice to to walk in and have instant english conversation with the staff at reception (Friendly and professional girls). Candy was a really helpful girl; she even showed me a great place for food popular to the locals. I reccommend back-packers to check this accomodation out as... More

For $5 you would really struggle to do better than this. Friendly staff, free beer and breakfast on the roof terrace and comfortable, clean beds. I ended up booking a Halong bay, monkey island cruise with them which I would recommend (do the 3 day!). All in all I had a great stay.

I was skeptical about this hostel in Hanoi but it ended up being the best hostel in Hanoi, possibly all of Vietnam. What made the hostel great was the free breakfast (eggs on toast, fruit, coffee and tea) as well as the free beer hour in the afternoon. There's nothing like free beer to bring a bunch of people together... More

This hostel was great. Free beer in happy hour. Secure place to keep your belongings. Relaxed atmosphere. Friendly staff. Easy to meet people (I felt included straight away). No problems at all. I was also the only girl in the mixed dorm for a night or 2, and I still felt safe. It was my favourite place to stay in... More

I stayed in this hostel for 4 nights. I paid only $5 per night. This includes breakfast (egg, toast and fruit), free coffee and tea all day and one hour of free beer. Also, the staff is very friendly and helpful here. And they love to have a chat with you. The location is quite good, it's in the old... More

We paid 18 dollars for a tripple room with aircon, fridge and private bath with hot shower. Breakfast with fruit,toast, tea and coffee inclusive. They also sell water for the usual price. I would stay here again when I am in Hanoi
