I don't really understand the ratings there. I stayed there 3 nights and everything was perfect. Nice friendly and helpful staff, cheap good food, nice dorms with huge lockers and power plugs for each bed, clean showers/toilets/dorms, seems well soundproofed, was in the dorm just over the bar and had absolutely no problem sleeping at any time. The overall atmosphere... More

I stayed here for three nights and didn't want to leave! The staff were so friendly and helpful! I booked my tour to Sapa and Halong Bay with them and had a great time. The rooms were clean and spacious! There is free beer during happy hour! What more can you ask for! Highly recommended!

This hostel is one of my favourite in Vietnam. Great staff to help you out with anything. Came back after my stay 3 years ago. Beds are comfy, ensuite bathroom is clean and modern and the bar downstairs is great to meet people when traveling alone. With free beer from 7:30 to 8:30!

The hostel was in a great location, but the rooms were not very clean and had many BED BUGS!! They were crawling on the beds, and I unfortunately carried them with me the rest of my trip, NOT FUN! The happy hour was fun and met lots of cool people. The free breakfast was 1 egg, banana and bread. Can... More

This hostel is one of the best we have stayed in across SE Asia. The staff are exceptionally friendly, nice clean rooms and showers. They have a bar area where beer is free between 7.30 and 8.30pm.

The location is also very good. Walking distance to night market and beer corner. We booked the Halong Party Cruise for 3 days/2nights through... More

At first staff are nice until they encounter a problem and rather want to get rid off you. During the night I got bitten by bedbugs and immediately wanted to change rooms but this wasn't possible. In the morning I kindly asked again but they refused because than I would spread the problem. Basically saying I should leave in stead... More

What sets this hostel apart from many others is the wide range of free offerings and services, including Internet access, WiFi, AC, lockers, towel service, green tea, beer, and travel consulting. You must also like the cleanliness throughout all areas with really hot showers. The staff was always very friendly, honest and helpful. They let me use their business phone... More

Awesome backpacker hotel, super friendly and helpful staff members, good facilities and all of that right in the old quarter. We had a private room which was lovely and huge. It's also a great place to meet other travellers and have a good time. Recommended!
