I stayed here for 3 nights in total with my boyfriend. This was our first time to Hanoi - we stayed for 2 nights then did a 2 night tour through the hostel and then stayed an extra night on the way back from our boat trip. The hostel is walking distance to all the main attractions in Hanoi. Amy... More

The private rooms are nice. They provide a Great breakfast of an omelette and bread. They also provide a fair Price for booking tours and train tickets. Even if you are not staying here I highly recommend booking things through them. The staff are very nice and helpful. They even took the time to remember our names.

The room was a good size with a massive and very soft bed which was well received after a difficult trip here. It was 6C here and the AC worked as a heater making for a for a very... More

Very tired on arrival at hostel 1 and before putting down backpack we were bombarded with information and felt pressured to agree to book tours (we resisted somehow)! We did book one tour with them the following day and booked one ourselves - this went down like 'a lead baloon')!! and the attitude of the 2 main staff changed dramatically... More

This place is just ok. The pictures make it look much nicer than it is. The first night I couldn't shake the feeling that my room smelled like urine, and thankfully the second night the smell was gone - so it would seem it wasn't totally my imagination. Still the rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. The building has definitely... More

The hostel is in a good location near the old quarter. Amy and King are really helpful and friendly, offered me tea and coffee and bananas - i was also allowed to rest in a room for a hour whilst waiting for my bus to Sapa. I also arranged tours to Halong Bay and Sapa through the hostel and they... More

The hotel was as you'd expect for the price, the rooms were quite basic but very clean and spacious. The staff are what make this hotel a 5 star for me. When we arrived Ms Ammy was very friendly, gave us some bottles of water and had our bags delivered to our room. The included breakfast each morning was also... More

We stayed here 10 nights believe or not and we did not regret it! The room were stayed in (101) was clean with a king/sized very comfortable bed and all the facilities we needed for our stay. We enjoyed good nights sleep despite the room being above the reception and the hotel being next to a busy road. The staff... More

It's a nice hotel for a very good price! Rooms are clean and the staff was always friendly and helpful. Of cause they try to sell you some tours (but the one we did was awesome) but everything to fair prices. The included breakfast was ok for one day, but boring, for no variety on the other days... The hotel... More
