I stayed in Golden Time Hostel for 2 nights and everything was great! The rooms were clean and comfortable. Amy helped me a lot about everything, gave some tips about the city, helped me book my tour to Halong Bay, which was fantastic, and let me have a rest in the hostel and use the internet after I return from...

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!

The staff here are amazing, really friendly and helpful, they remember you by name and do everything possible to ensure you have a good stay. We got given little waters and watermelon when we arrived and made sure we had a room for when we got back from our Halong Bay trip. My boyfriend and I stayed here on our... More

Stayed here recently with my boyfriend. From the minute we arrived Amy, the girl on reception, was so so friendly. We had just got off the bus from hell from Hoi An & she let us settle in our room really early and then brought a breakfast up. She was also very helpful showing us on the map where to... More

I had a great experience here. The rooms were nice and the staff was great! The wifi was a little spotty at times and the breakfast was not great, hence 4 stars, but other than that very solid hostel. It's well located, clean, and the staff is friendly, which in my opinion are the most important factors in choosing a... More

Very good place to stay with awesome friendly staff. Its more of a hotel than a hostel but that doesn't matter, the value for money is great. Rooms are spacious: with working A/C, king size bed, clean and tidy, breakfast included, good location close to the lake. The bathroom is a bit small but it does the job, with good... More
