I had heard incredible things about this hostel. Many even dubbed it, the "best hostel in the world". But I was pretty disappointed. I stayed here for a relatively long time (9 days all up) in an female dorm. During the course of my stay, I saw at least 4 boys come and stay in the room, completely contracting the... More

Gorgeous private rooms, but unnecessary and expensive considering quality options just down the road for less than half the price. Too many people and they're all on a booze cruise asking 'how many countries you done' rubbish. Some of the staff are rude, probably frustrated by ignorant, drunken Westerners! It's just too hectic....don't stay here if you want good conversation,... More

We enjoyed the experience but feel that we didn't get enough value for our money and there was false advertising in the hostel and flyers. We were promissed a western guide and got a vietnamese that had very basic english and was difficult to understand. On the motorbike day, there was supposed to be a hippie van to ride in... More

Hanoi backpackers is just amazing. Free beer, bar crawls, unreal chill out area with a load of films and such a friendly vibe. We found it amazing that we could get a double bed and still be involved in meeting people along our travels. It was a massive concern that we wouldn't be able to do this if we had... More

This place is a great place to meet people. The rooms are ok for a basic hostel but there are cheaper places in the same street. The food is good and the bar is a great place to meet fellow backpackers. The bar has a daily bar crawl and the staff are extremely helpful. Overall a decent place to stay,... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. My room was clean, comfortable and had lockers and aircon. The bar is a really great place to hang out and meet all fellow travellers. All the staff was so friendly and helpful to me. I booked a tour to Ha Long Bay and it was just perfect. Highly recommend it when you visit... More

So you know what you are getting right! A cheap room filled with very young very drunk travelers, and an STI if you sleep with any of the staff! But that is the point! The bar is good the staff are friendly, rooms are clean. You have to do there trip to Har Long Bay. And go out on there... More

I stayed in the Downtown Backpackers location, and it was perfect. It was the first place I stayed on arriving in Vietnam, my first time in the country and the staff did a wonderful job of welcoming me and helping me get my bearings. Friendly, lively atmosphere with a good chill out lounge and bar. The rooms are pretty clean... More
