Really good location in the centre of Old Quarter. We stayed in a triple room which was luxurious in comparison to the usual! Good breakfast and happy hour - made it v easy to meet people. The staff were very helpful when it came to booking our coaches and Halong Bay tour. The tour itself was really fun and a... More

Location perfect as it's only a short walk to all the sites! We were given a really big and helpful map, and "cuong" was really... More

PROS: - Free beer hour - Free breakfast - Air conditioning - power outlet next to beds - helpful and friendly staff CONS: - Hard beds - Not quiet - depends the scene you're looking for. Can't say anything bad about this place, but it's nothing over-the-top amazing. Good, not great. It's has everything you'd need and is priced well.... More

Great stay. The from room was clean, comfy-ish beds and bathroom was really nice. Staff very friendly and even knew everyone's names before you arrived. Breakfast was a bread roll with a banana and some jam so not bad. Really recommended for travellers as a great location.

This hostel was great for us. It was centrally located, clean, and had very friendly staff. We got the double room, not the dorm rooms so we had more than enough space and big bathroom, perfect for us after traveling for a month in India. The room had AC which worked perfectly and wifi was spotty at times but good... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and booked the ha long bay tour through them. The tour was incredible, and the hostel was a great place to meet other travelers. Staff super friendly and helpful, free beer at night, clean rooms and a good spot all together. Highly recommended

Could not have asked for a better trip through the Ha Long bay. 2nights, 3 days and was an exceptional time. The food was brilliant and there was a lot of it, the accommodation was perfect, the boat was even better and the itinerary was great. Overall, we had a really good trip with great company! I highly recommend this... More
