Pros: Many staff were very friendly and often helpful. The dorm and private rooms were very clean and overall very nice. There was hot water in the shower and large locking storage beneath the bunks. The activities seemed well planned - free drinks on the rooftop bar resulted in many new friends and good interactions. They have a DVD player... More

I stayed here for 4 day in January 2015. It was my first hostel experience in Vietnam and the rooms were clean and toilet/shower areas were pretty clean as well. The best thing about this hostel for me was the bar area downstairs - a great place to meet people and they regularly do happy hours or free beer/shots (if... More

This is a typical backpackers hostel, a really good place for meeting people, helpful staff, and some extra goodies like free walking tours and breakfast. The dorms are alright, pretty small and sometimes noisy. They can get messy with all the people staying in them but the sheets are clean. There are some nice common areas but the staff didn't...

Although we didn't stay at Hanoi Backpackers, it was somewhere we regularly visited for the great atmosphere. It had all the amenities you could wish for while travelling, along with a great team eager to help. HOWEVER, we did book our ongoing bus tickets from here ($54 USD pp) for the 4 stops ticket taking us to the South of... More

Let's get one thing straight, you're paying a premium for the atmosphere of Hanoi Backpackers, not the facilities. This is an incredibly busy hostel with plenty of opportunities to meet fellow travellers and have a great party. If you're looking for something a little more comfortable, low-key or age appropriate (over 30 proceed with caution), you can easily find cheaper... More

One of the best experiences from my travels in South East Asia. I stayed alone at the Hanoi Backpacker Hostel in the Old Quarter not knowing anyone and easily met many fun people from around the world. Males and females are comfortably separated and the bedrooms are cool and clean with ample storage for your luggage that is safely locked... More

Hi Jennifer, thanks for taking the time to review our hostel, we appreciate your feedback. We have slightly changed our Castaways Halong Bay tour over the past couple of months which has proven to be an even greater success. We are happy you had a great stay with us. Hope to see you again soon one day. More

I stayed at the original and it was quite boring compared to the downtown hostel. Me and my mates went to the downtown hostel to drink and meet people because the rooftop bar at the original was pretty boring. I would highly recommend doing their castaway and sapa tours two of the best experiences of my travels. I would recommend... More

I stayed in the Hanoi Backpackers Hostel 2 Downtown with my friend. The rooms are fine, the beds too, except for some sand and hairs in the bed that werent ours. Breakfast is 'included' but you have to pay for everything extra. I paid 20.000 dong for 1,5 piece of bacon. They don't fill the hot water tanks for tea... More

Me and my friends stayed at the Downtown Hostel and we really enjoyed ourselves. I'm sure there could be other cheaper hotels to stay at but we didn't just get accommodation, we got an experience. They offer good food at reasonable prices though there are many places around it to consider too if you would like. We stayed in a... More
