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
