Little Hanoi Hostel
Ranked #12 of 432 Specialty Lodging in Hanoi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

Just a really quick review to echo what most have said before me. This really is an amazing place to stay and the staff are incredible. I had to plan two weeks from Hanoi to HCM and Tony was the one who stopped me from pulling my hair out - he worked out almost everything with/for me! The hostel is more like a hotel and really is at the top of its game. Free airport transfer, free fruit (in room and lobby, every day), breakfast included, daily room cleaning and excellent tour advice (unbiased as far as I can tell) along with travel booking. LHH is an awesome little haven in a hectic town.

l can honestly say that I have never stayed in such a lovely hospitable place. The staff are so friendly and helpful and just could not do enough for us. They picked us up at the airport, gave us a map and marked out all the places of interest in Hanoi, helped us arrange our trip to Ha Long Bay, organised our train to Hue and even paid for our taxi to the station. A big thank you to Tony in particular for such excellent service!

I recommend everyone to stay here! I have always wanted to say this, finally- this is the BEST hostel I have ever stayed in out of my RTW travels. The service they provide is OUTSTANDING, the kindest most sincere people you could ever meet. They each helped me plan my entire Vietnam trip, with extra special efforts made by Tony. I found the information provided to be no too biased in any way, and we compared a whole range of options which included independently booked alternatives. I appreciate all the time and effort the team paid me to my needs, and my stay at the hostel. The breakfast is free, and given that beyond generous, and booking tours to Sapa and HL bay in the end was an absolute breeze. I really feel at home at Little Hanoi Hostel, pouring myself tea and helping myself to fruits all day while chatting to staff in my downtime :-) Ask them where the best places to eat are, it is a great base to explore Hanoi as it is all very much walkable.
Another great thing is the custom wooden bunk beds in the dorm. Nothing worse than those horrible metal low-lying bunks where you have to duck to be at the bottom, and absolutely hurt your feet on those thin metal rod ladders I've experienced far too often.. just a little detail that I in particular appreciated. Also another pet hate is when there are not enough power outlets in the room. Stay in the dorm and there are PLENTY! this never happens for me ha. I will stay here again and again! In fact I'll be coming back tomorrow briefly! Many many thanks- Ashleigh

We used Little Hanoi Hostel as our base for traveling among Hanoi, Sapa, and Halong Bay. They were super helpful booking our trips and were really flexible when our plans changed. And the location is right in the middle of everything.

Extremely friendly staff! The man in charge is amazing! He is super friendly, and he told us all of the best places to get good local food, as well as attractions and must-sees. There was free tea and coffee and fruit daily, and the food there was not all too bad. I would recommend just asking the front desk where to get good food instead though. It is in a very nice location, the rooms were pleasant and decently priced as well. The reason I enjoyed myself so much is really because of the hospitality shown by the staff.

Although my stay at Little Hanoi was short and brief, the service and hospitality I received was very welcoming and comforting. It is one of the better hotels in the city for a decent and affordable price.

Rooms and bathrooms were compact but cosy and clean. Wifi was excellent with good range all around the hotel. Breakfast was included and loved the fresh local fruits offered throughout the day. Location is good and within walking distance to all the major sites and places in Hanoi. There are great eateries not too far from the hotel also – ask Tony for directions to the best noodle houses in Hanoi. After-hour security is very good. There is a storage facility so you can leave your luggage and pack accordingly for the tours such as sapa, halong bay, etc…

Airport pickup to the hotel was not free – cost about $15USD (takes approximately 45 minutes). There is a bus/van airport transfer service for less than $3USD located near Vietnam Airlines office in Hanoi.

Tip: Do not skimp when making a booking for any tours – the prices are cheap for a reason you do not want to find out personally. Tony or any of the staff at the hotel will inform you of this… and they are not trying to upsell the tours. There are anecdotal evidence of bad experiences from the cheaper tours.
