We had airport pick up which was amazing, arrived at the hostel and greeted by the most friendly staff and given the keys to our room! Like no hostel I've ever seen a amazing tiled wetroom with all new fixtures and amazing shower! Clean room with big comfy pillows and marshmallowy duvets. Lockers with keys provided that corresponded to the... More

Booked us multiple train tickets, booked our excursion to Ha Long Bay and offered great advice on what to explore in the city. So friendly and excellent English! Great resource to have in the first city of our trip. Clean rooms, free breakfast and great location.

Hostel is very clean and in walking distance to many attractions in hanoi. Hostel offers free breakfest, beer, and is in a quite location, so getting some sleep wont be a prob. Best part about the hostel is the very friendly and helpful staff especially Candy shes cute.

Super location. Backpacker vibe with a common area and free beer between 7 and 8. Also, free breakfast. Rooms had a good vibe to them, hot water. The lady on front desk is so,so ffriendly and helpful. She learns your name. It's so welcoming!

Great place, a lot of help with booking halong bay trips and general hanoi sightseeing. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived so got a luxury double room at no extra charge which was great. AND finding free beer aanywhere is always good (even if it's only for an hour)

Stayed in a shared dorm for 3 nights. Rooms and bathrooms are nice, beds are VERY hard, but that is common for S.E. Asia. In a great backpacker location with lots of restaurants, shops, and Saint Joseph's Cathedral right down the road. Free beer hour every night, and a free basic breakfast of a baguette, eggs, and tea or coffee.... More

Safety deposit boxes in the room for each bunk that have there own locks so you don't need to have one with you. Great location and awesome balcony's. TV playing good shows and... More

I've stayed for four nights in this hostel and the staff made my stay even more comfortable especially when I was sick for couple days. They clean the rooms every day and support a laundry service as well. The hostel is very well located in the central and all the shops and restaurants are just a short walking distance away....
