I stayed here for the start of my trip in September and again in November and I can safely say this is the best place to stay in Hanoi. So much so that staying at Central Backpacker's was a highlight of my trip!
A variety of people stay at Central and every person I met was friendly and a lot fun to be around. The staff are super kind and helpful and always up for a chat. CONG the bar man is an absolute legend, ask him nicely and he will even come on a bar crawl with you. Another thing I thought was awesome - every morning a really sweet little Vietnamese woman came into the dorm and cleaned up quietly, she even lined my shoes up for me.. I gave her one of my dresses as a present when I left.
Beds are comfortable, rooms/dorms are quiet enough for a good nights sleep (depending on your roommates obviously), there is free beer every night, cheap drinks all night, brilliant atmosphere and the dorm beds are only $5. What more could you want?
Thanks so much to everyone at Central for making my trip so bloody amazing :) xx eliza
