best place for computer access?

Hi daughter is volunteering in Hanoi in july. She has to do an assignment whilst there and needs use of a computer for a long time and decent internet. Where would be the best place to get this? She is staying in a hostal but wont have her laptop, would she be better checking in to one of the better hotels for a couple of nights (maybe with a buisness centre) or would an internet cafe be o.k? Thanks in advance.

Just about all hotels and hostels in Hanoi have computers in their lobbies for guests to use. However your daughter would be highly unpopular if she hogged one for hours.

There will no doubt be free wifi where she's staying so the obvious solution would be to take some sort of device with her. If necessary she can ask the hostel staff to keep it in the hostel's safe when she's out.

Whoever she's going to send files to better have good anti virus software if she is going to use public computers.

Too true Jim - so not only unpopular with fellow guests but also unpopular with the recipient(s) of files.

I cant speak for the UK but I can tell you Vietnam has better mobile phone and internet coverage and speed than Australia at a very very cheap rate.

Free wifi is every where but local computrrs in both hotels and internet cafes are riddled with virus infections. So if she can take a small travel laptop it would be better.
