I picked this place based on good feedback from guests and am happy to confirm that it lives up to those. The only problems, annoyance, etc you are likely to face are from other guests - and that's luck of the draw.

Your enjoyment of this place will depend greatly on what you value. If you want top-notch facilities or even a new coat of paint, for the same price you can find better-appointed hotels in the same area. If you want a personal experience with a a family that lives in the hotel, are overly friendly and welcoming, and bend over backwards to accommodate, then you will likely enjoy your stay.
Chien, the owner, is the kindest guy we've met, he helped us in any way possible, his service cannot be beat, the hostel is very clean, the breakfast is great, the service is just exaggerated, that's how much he tries to keep you happy, he even gave us food for the road when we left, price of rooms for what you get cannot be beat in hanoi, he can get you tours or bus tickets at the lowest price, and we had shopped around. Location is amazing right in old quarter, this hostel is a must stay!
