The original hostel of the 2 central backpackers hostel in Hanoi is a great place for travellers. Cheap and amazing! The slightly older building has newly renovated rooms and facilities. Very clean dorm rooms and newly tiled bathrooms. I stayed in an 8 person mixed room and found it to be very cozy and secure - with big lockers for bags, large rainfall shower, new A/C unit and comfortable bunk beds. The one elevator takes about 3 people with backpacks and is kind of slow.
There is a FREE BEER HOUR (yes a whole hour of as many beers as you can drink) which is great to meet fellow travellers and get a nice start for a night out in Hanoi. The atmoshpere is fun, the small drinking room at the back of the hostel is dingey and pub-like. They also have free breakfast in this room which was really good actually.
The friendly staff are always there to help with local info, bike rental and training, as well as tour group deals.
This newly renovated hostel is perfect for backpackers of course and a great place to party. We had such a good time here! More
