This was my first stay in a hostel so I don't have anything to compare it to. The room and cleanliness etc seemed pretty standard for a hostel, I certainly wasn't expecting too much. It is the friendly and helpful staff that truly make it the place to stay in Hanoi. If you are planning travel through Vietnam the staff... More

We had a terrific stay at this hostel in hanoi, the stuff were absolutely FANTASTIC! We only had one night in Hanoi, so we were rushed and unsure of what we wanted to do there, they recommended beautiful places to eat and what to see during our short time there they helped us book flights/accommodation for the remainder of our...

Literally I have no idea who is leaving all of these fantastic ratings about this place, everyone who has left a review must have pretty low standards. I stayed here for a couple of nights with my girlfriend at the start of February and it was OK, at best. Maybe a 6/10 simply because it ticked most of the boxes... More

Haven't had too many amazing hostel experiences in my life, they're usually as efficient around as functional as the prices indicate, but this hostel was different. Didn't really know what to expect on our first trip to Vietnam, but we were immediately really warmly welcomed by the receptionist who supplied us with maps, information on taxis, and recommended some really...

I was there for two nights and it was great. The rooms are clean and decent, and the breakfast is served on a terrace upstairs (no elevator!). It is pretty much within walking distance of everything, and only 2 blocks away from the local bus station. There is a great place for egg coffee right across the street! The staff... More

There is a lack of hygiene in this hostel. They do not change the sheets when the cliente changes. For the price is not that bad and the people are friendly, just becarfull before you buy a train/bus ticket, their commission can be very high, i paid 8 dolares for a train ticket that just cost 4$.

Good location and cheap one. Distance from here to the lake takes about 10-20 minutes walk only. While we walk to the lake there are so many things to see and buy so I don't feel tired. I don't ask for much on the stay because at very first hand me and my friend already decided to go for a... More
