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

Amazing hostel located along the street where I was able to see alot of shops selling nice Christmas decorations this time. The room is always clean with the bedsheet regularly changed! I came across some really awful hostels before with dirty bedsheets, but this hostel totally stands out from the rest! With such an inexpensive dorm rate, I was also... 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

stayed here for a couple of nights. You should walk more than 20 mins to the lake. If you are like me, you can explore local hanoi streets whlie staying here. I liked staying here with cheap price and kind staff.

Good location in the cosy old-quarter. Rooms are small but nice. Bathroom could have been a bit cleaner. The roof terrace (where a decent breakfast is also served) is nice. Young staff, they speak quite good English.

The rooms here were really clean and comfortable beds. Able to walk in and book a dorm bed for that night, Able to sort out all transport and get good advice from the staff at the hotel. The price was great as well for a dorm room.
