Very good service, good room, nice staff but we got missunderstanding with their cs staff. He offering us traveling package to Tam Coc and 2D1N in Halong (90 USD). Both of this package dissapointed us specially in Halong. I know this is not their fault but this staff not tell us the truth.

Thank you very much for your precious comment and as our previous explanation that, you and my staffs had some small misunderstandings in English communication and our hotel specialized in organizing the medium trips at least and above, we have never booked a cheapest trip for our guests, but your case was exception, due to you insisted to want to go to Halong bay and Hoa Lu Tam Coc trips with cheapest price in Hanoi and that was reason why our staffs recommended you to this trip. Thanks

The valeu for money os good because it's cheap and there's breakfast. The staff also is nice, but the internet in the dormitory does not work which sucks. Also do some search before booking tours with them, usually if you book in an tour agency is cheaper.

Your average budget stay - stayed in the dorm, not the rooms at the hotel. AC didn't work and it was excruciatingly hot in Vietnam during the summer; they thankfully moved us across the street to the KOTO Hotel which is a sister hotel. Towel broke as I was wiping my back...you really get what you pay for. Breakfast was decent. Don't book the tours, be sure to walk around and find travel agents who will do it for cheaper.

Staff are very friendly and helpful, location is close to all the main sights in the city with options for food nearby, the dorm room was fairly big with good lockers for valuables. The en suite was also a good size but had a bad smell to it and the water didn't drain away very well. Breakfast is included but is basic. Very good option to stay while in Hanoi.

Loved staying there! The staff were so helpful. We booked a dorm and they had overbooked so we got upgraded to a private room with no additional cost

I was offered a ride from the Airport for $18 USD and told by e-mail that it was the cheapest possible for a taxi. This may be truth for a private car (not sure), but I got to the hostel for $3 USD on a van from the airport. That's big money in Vietnam (2-3 nights of a hostel stay) HOSTEL: Good hostel; clean, with friendly staff and very decent breakfast. They do try to push you their tours in a not very seaming less way.

The staff here were so friendly and helpful I couldn't believe it! They also offered the market rate of exchange which is much appreciated after others trying to rip you off. There's a water dispenser in the lobby which is free to refill your bottles, and free wifi in the lobby too. We also stayed across the road at Koto hotel, their sister company, which had a very good air conditioned private room! Thank you to the staff for all their help.

I stayed here with 5 friends and we had the most pleasant stay! First of all the staff were very kind to us and always greeted us with glasses of filter water and huge smiles. They were always eager to help us and plan our days. They helped us organize our trip to halong bay for 3 days and gave us a great deal. We rented 3 large double family rooms which were big and spacious with a wide variety of tv channels. The bathrooms were quite small and dated but we got a lot For our money. Good hostel

The staff are really rude to you unless you book the trips to sapa/ halong bay through them ( which you shouldn't as they over charge you hugely compared to the travel agent) Dorm was ok, but really dirty on the floor, so much noise including a rooster that started at 5:30am! Location was good, other wise pretty average.

We stayed here for three nights at the start of our tour of Vietnam.It was a great hotel, very centrally located and a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of the main city. The breakfast buffet was excellent each morning and the service was very prompt and friendly. We organised out trip to halong bay through the hotel's tour office and they couldn't have been more helpful. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Hanoi in the future!
