We stayed here for 3 nights in August 2013. The staff are so friendly and make you feel really welcome. We booked our tour of Halong Bay through the reception staff, we literally told them we wanted to go and they sorted everything out for us, we were picked up and dropped off right at the door, all for $20,...

We have very much enjoyed our stay here. The rooms are in good condition but a little humid. The staff has been very helpful and friendly. Five stars to the staff!!! Breakfast was okay but not great. We would recommend this place to other backpackers!

We had a great time in the Golden Time Hostel. The staff is friendly and greatly motivated to help you out, they make you breakfast every day before you leave the hostel. We booked a nice Ha Long Bay Trip with Golden Time and they also booked our train tickets to Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park. Beds are comfortable... More

We stayed in Golden Time Hostel for 3 nights spread over a 5 night period with a 2 night trip to Ha Long Bay in between in February. Firstly, the hostel is more like a hotel in terms of the quality of rooms and the way it is decorated. The hot water lasted long enough for both of us to... More

I had stayed in the Old Quarter before and paid more for less. Golden Time is like a family run Hotel, speaks good English, was most helpful in booking us for Halong Bay and the breakfast was a cut above the rest. Great Deal. Great Digs. Don and Dave :)

Probably one of the best quality/price ratio you can find. Lovely clean furnished rooms, cheap price with nice breakfast, perfect location (500m from the legendary Hoan Kiem lake) and above all: a friendly-family helping staff. Traveling is about the people, always, and you can't be disappointed in Golden Time :)

When we get to Golden Time Hostel, we have been welcomed by receptionist May. She offered us drink, which was really great after long journey.
