Absolutely great stay here. Room was big and very clean. Amy (the girl on reception) is possibly the most helpful person you will ever meet, constantly giving us free bottles of water and watermelon and helping with directions. You merely ring in the morning and they bring you breakfast to your room which was an omelette and small baguette. The... More

We booked 2 nights here and a tour to ha long bay and were very happy with our decision. The staff was super attentive and really accommodating, they let us split our reservation into two different nights when we decided to go to Sapa, and when we returned they let us check in early at 730am. During our stay, whenever... More

We stayed at Golden Time 3 Hostel and the staff were brilliant. The first room we had had broken air conditioning, but the manager (Tony) came to apologise thoroughly and changed our rooms! For the price, the level of service is incredible :)

The bad: Two of the three nights we stayed here, we weren't as comfortable as we'd expected to be. Their A/C units on the upper floors look like they're a little old and couldn't cool down the rooms (I know because we got to experience 4 rooms in the span of 3 days). Also, breakfast is a little bland. And... More

Staying here for 4 nights, the location is superb, near the lake and supermarket. The staff here especially Amy are amazing, very friendly and helpful. They arranged all our trip started from midnight airport pickup, halong bay and hoalu tam coc tours with reasonable price. We stayed on the room 302. It was big and clean. Everything in the room...

This hostel is well located, near the lake and just some blocks from the old quarter, in an area not so crowded as in the old quarter. Besides the the great cost-benefit, good bedroom size and cleanliness, the staff is really gentle and always want to help in everything! Really recommend it!
