Me and my partner were heading to Asia for the first time and weren't really sure what to expect - we'd heard stories of both huge 5-star hotels for a dollar a night, and tiny little places charging loads. We were very happy to find this place - they helped us get from the train station to the hostel after sending them an email with our arrival time, and we stayed there for a week. The staff were really friendly, helping us with the next step of our journey (open bus ticket ftw!) and the free beer was a bonus! :D I didn't realise most hostels sold tours either, but the Halong Bay trip they sold us was great, (Check it out if you haven't been there!). Can't really complain about anything, location and service was all really good.
