I spent 3 nights here and I'll be happy to stay longer . The rooms are spacious , only the bathroom is a little small but perfectly suitable. The staff is very attentive and takes care to satisfy all requests. Moreover it is ideally located : 5 min walking from the lake and away from the noise of bustling downtown... More

We stayed in this hostel for 6 nights in total, with short break when we took a trip to Halong bay. They had no problem keeping a room for us on our return. The rooms are really spacious although the first room we stayed in the bathroom was really cramped. The beds are comfortable and they bring up breakfast to... More

I had read some good reviews, the price could not be better and as I would find out the location was second to none as well. I am so glad I decided to stay there. I had a single room with its own bathroom (FYI, the shower was just a shower head off of the sink and the bathroom also... More

I've stayed here for 4 days. The hotel is really close to the old quarter. They speak pretty good English and they are really helpful. They've helped me organise all my trips just they way I wanted with very good prices. P.s they bring you breakfast at your room? What else to ask?

Good basic hostel in Hanoi about 10 minutes walk from the old town. The room was spacious and clean, shower and bathroom also good but very small. Staff was friendly and the free breakfast was good and they bring it in your room because there is no common area except the small reception, but it's nice!

We really recommend this hostel because of the great position, large rooms and especially for the friendly personal. Alice and Amy made our stay in Hanoi unforgettable. We recommend to book a "medium" tour to HaLong Bay. They offer taxi pick up for 15 USD, which is safe and easy. Breakfast is served to bed and is quite rich. When... More

Good place to stay in Hanoi! Close to the center (on the east side of the lake), big and clean room, nice staff who helped us to find our train and bus tickets for our next destination. For the price, it's perfect!
