Central Homestay is perfectly located in the Old Quarter. Right in the center of it all with plenty of places to shop and eat right around the corner. The owners, Men and Anna, were incredibly helpful and kind when it came to our rooms, things to do around town they even helped us book an overnight tour to Halong Bay....

We spent a couple of nights here before and after we took the Halong bay tour. The dorm was great, strong ac, ok wifi, good hot shower and a very polite and pleasant girl at the reception. The night guy was a cool dude as well. They kindly let us leave our bags there while we were on the tour....
