I ww looking for a chilled-out hostel and intending to do my partying elsewhere, and that's what I got. The lounge area is great for chilling in and staff are helpful with booking onward travel. The place is quiet when you want to sleep. Beds are flimsy though, so a restless bunkmate means little sleep...

I stayed at the Superior Room in May De Ville for three nights while in Hanoi.

My vietnamese friend recommended this hostel to us and we ended up staying here 1 week before heading to the south. The hostel has a great location in old quarter but at the same time it's very quiet at the night time. Also simple breakfast is included. The staff is very friendly and always ready to help you.

Nice backpackers and very cheap. The rooms were clean and have an on suite. The buffet breakfast was stale bread, instant noodles and dry fried rice but it's free. It's not a party hostel.
