They provided a pick up from the airport which was a considerable distance away which was great. The friendly owners gave great advice when it came to local food and both the Halong bay trip and a cycle trip to the countryside where good and well priced. The only downside was the reluctance to change Vietnamese currency back into US... More

Located in the bustling Old Quarter, I really enjoyed my stay at the Little Hanoi Hostel. David and Kim were fantastic, so friendly and helpful with all things. You know the place is special when the staff rushes to hold the door open for you when you arrive (this is a hostel, not the Ritz). I stayed in the dorm... More

The room itself was nice, we stayed in a dorm room, and breakfast was okay. Shower room was not particularly clean but was okay for a few nights. My bed linen however reeked of BO, making me question my hygiene at several stages of the night to later realise it was definitely not me! A mouse ran across the kitchen... More

Our double room was more like a hotel than a hostel, really big and a good en suite. The staff spent a long time with us planning and booking our Halong Bay trip and buses to the next place (Phong Nha). Free tea and coffee all day, and the free breakfast was good!

Little hanoi hostel is a great hostel in a good location in Hanoi. The staff is extremely welcoming from the beginning to the end, and when i came back to the hostel unexpectedly they welcomed me with a hug, made me feel just at home. The hostel offers free tea, coffee and fruit all day and has a decent breakfast... More

We stayed here for 1 night in July and the service provided was fantastic. The room itself is basic enough and relative to the price we paid. Tea, coffee and fruit is always available in reception, free wifi in reception area also. David helped us with all of our queries, including booking an absolutely fantastic trip to Sapa & transport.... More

Loved staying here. It was clean, comfortable and quiet and right in the centre of the action. Couldn't have asked for more of the room. Breakfast was good and fast each day and we really enjoyed our stay. The star of the place though is Kim, the hostess/reception lady. She was so attentive to our needs without being pushy. She...

I cannot thank David enough for his kindness and the quality of the Little Hanoi Hostel. The hostel was clean, the breakfast was good, and the beds were comfortable. The dormitory room on the first floor was a bit tight on space, but the beds were large. The best part of the hostel was the easily the staff. I traveled... More

Great location. Decent rooms at a reasonable price. The breakfast is good and there is fruit and tea available throughout the day. I have to say that a staff member - David (or handsome david as he liked to be called!!) ruined everything else about the hostel. We planned to go in and out of Hanoi to go to Sapa,... More
