Private rooms were over priced for a hostel. But then rest of the stay was good. Pretty much a quite place by the rooms, but then downstairs was usually very active. This is a good place to go to get you barrings, and to have a good time with other travelers. Great location and amazing staff. I would deff recommend... More

This is a well organised party hostel for sure. There are events on every night with great guides to help you on your way through the Hanoi night life. The tours are also very well organised. I went on a Halong Bay Castaways tour and again - a party tour for sure. I stayed in a double room which was... More

I spent couple of days here it was ok wasnt cheap for a private room, though dorms were cheap. Breakfast wasnt great. The service time taken by staff to check in & out was terribly long.Lifts were taking too long too.The bar downstairs was fine would attract decent crowd . You can definitely find a better private room elsewhere for... More

The hostel itself is very nice and clean with good amenities and has both a dining room and a rooftop bar. Some of the staff leave a little to be desired but for the price, you can't complain too much. This hostel is a bit of a party hostel though. They have a pub crawl every night so expect to... More

We stayed in a double bed in a mixed dorm room. The bed was big and comfortable. The option to pay a couple bucks less for one large bed instead of two singles as a couple was new to us as budget travellers and we were very pleased. The room was serviced daily and the bathrooms were very clean. Good... More

Good location, near shops and restaurants and down a lane so no traffic. Food was lovely "service" not always as nice. Rooms, we stayed in a dorm, beds comfortable and bathroom clean. Although we had a bath/shower in the room, I used the communal showers once. Best shower during my time in Vietnam! Power shower and hot the whole time!... More

I stayed at this hostel for 2 separate nights during my trip to Hanoi. Overall, the hotel was pretty clean, in a great location, and had a very fun atmosphere. The downstairs is basically just a big bar. There are tons of people here ALL THE TIME, so it's very easy to meet others or just hang out. The 5th... More

Great atmosphere of you want to go on a pub crawl - they organise the places and are in a big group so you feel safe! There are other dorms very close to the area for cheaper though. The area is quite central. Very good for meeting many other backpackers, but you can probably meet them elsewhere too.

I can't say anything bad about Hanoi Backpackers. Rooms were nice, I stayed in a few different rooms because I kept extending my stay and they were all nice enough. Free breakfast was good. Great location. If you stay here, definitely do the castaway tour to Ha Long Bay, it was amazing. Rooftop bar is great with something different going... More
