I stayed on St. Patrick's Day and had pre-booked. Check in was efficient enough but on my way to my room I saw a sign prompting guests to "drink the hostel dry". It didn't bode well. And sure enough the rooftop party ensured noise into the night, the music in the club next door thumped through the walls till late. The girls in my dorm came back at 3am drunk and talked at the top of their voices and switched the light on! (Not that this is the hostel's fault but perhaps indicative of the idiots staying there!).
The breakfast was really lame so I paid for something which was pretty ordinary. But the worst was when I enquired about booking a train ticket to Ninh Binh. I had researched so knew roughly the cost ought to be 70,000dong ($3.20) and though I expected a service charge I was pretty unimpressed at being told $10!!! Rip off!!!
