Great place in the old town center of Hanoi. The staff is great! They helped us a lot with buying SIM card, looking around the city and helped to book cheap tickets for bus. Thank you!


The staff is very unorganised. It isn't very social either, but the bed is fine.


Serious problem with the cleanness. Good location. Cheap accommodation in heart of the city.


The staff was very friendly and helpful.The beds were really nice. I had such a good sleep. Breakfast was included in the price too. I wanted to stay 2 more nights but they were fully booked. The only think that they can improve is the quality of the sheets, because they were not so clean. But it was still a good hostel to stay in.

One of the best hostels i stay. Personal very friendly, beds are confortable (very god mattres), breakfast is super big and delicious, they clean the room every day, so is super clean. Wifi is not so good, but is ok.


Good for the money. Breakfast is simple but good, provided you wake up in time. Helpful staff. Security is lax with no locking room door and a very small padlock for the locker.


Good Location, staff very friendly and helpful.

Had bed bugs! Be aware to always check sheets and walls for bugs and brown stains. Being from new York we deal with these a lot and they are a HUGE pain, the bugs will live on you after you leave. We saw them walking around when the room was lit which means that the infestation is deep. Heads up fellow travelers
