Rooms smell bad, walls are peeling, and the mattress had more broken springs poking at me then I have ribs. Location is ok and the place seems safe enough but these are the only positives. Also this is the only place i stayed at in vietnam that didn't have working internet.

Didnt have time to compare with the other hotels so we booked this one in rush which I was a bit regret. Paid 15usd for double bed with AC bathroom, wifi only works well on the first floor. We stayed in the room on the top floor, its probably the worst one when I traveled in Vietnam. I couldnt sleep... More

The room was dusty and looked dirty. The bed covers also looked dirty and I did not feel comfortable sleeping there. Half of the lights didn't work which added to the overall dinginess of the place. There was no room in the bathroom to have a shower without getting absolutely everything wet. The bathroom walls did not go all the... More

His laundry was drying on my balcony). At least the sheets were clean.  I found much much better for... More

I have room at third floor but stair so small to get up. and bathroom outside (cheapest room). The staff very helpful at night, he helped me to get the food at midnight and so... More

$10 for a standard double. I get to my room and there is no ensuite bathroom, which is fine, but the bathroom toilet doesn't flush and there is no toilet paper. Then I go to dinner and try to lock my door and it doesn't lock, not even the staff to lock the damn door. So I had to take... More

Do NOT stay here. I booked this place because it was in the backpacker area of Hanoi and it was a good price. When we got there the staff were very kind and friendly and the lobby looks fine but when we got to our room it was awful. Everything is covered in a thick layer of dirt, it almost... More

Budget friendly hotel right at the heart of Old Quarters but dont expect too much. The hotel is a four story building without any elevator. Rooms are old and not that comfty (well, just think that you are staying here just in the evening and you are tired strolling around Hanoi). The staffs are great and friendly. They will give...
