Nice place, friendly staff, we got fruit right away when we walked into the room. When we left for a two day trip to Ha Long Bay we stored our bags at the hotel, worked perfectly fine. And they arranged a taxi for us to go to the airport, which was convenient and not expensive.

Such a huge disappointment having done all the research online, dropped at hotel and despite the warmest of welcomes from Toni, water, coffee, fruit and assistance on halong bay trips an 'electrics' problem with our room meant we were moved to a far inferior hotel down the road. Although transfer was easy and staff checking we were ok other hotel is not a patch on what I researched and as such we will not go back for the additional 3 nights we had planned. This is not an acceptable practise.

More of a hotel than a hostel, which after a big New Years was exactly what we wanted. Super quiet and in a convenient location. Staff were really friendly and helpful.

The staff were great! Rooms are good but not amazing. Fun place to be.

More of a 3 star hotel than a hostel. We were greeted with a fruit plate and tea/coffee. Large room with private bathroom, wardrobe, safe, TV, AC. Free Tea & Coffee in the lobby. Good fast Wifi throughout the hostel. There are two locations, make sure you have the address for the correct one. Laundry service takes 24 hours and is reasonably priced.

We had a great stay here! We arrived in Hanoi at 5:30 and understandably they weren't open yet but when we came back at 7, we were greeted by Ann with fruit and free tea and coffee. She organized early check in for free even though it was only 8am. The rooms were more like hotel rooms than hostel rooms and clean with a nice hot shower. Brekkie was awesome! Wifi was great and we were on 7th floor. Cons - about a 10 minute walk to some of the shopping areas. No communal hang out area.

Tony is very gently and atencious. He offered coffee and fruits on my arrival and helped on booking a boat tour. When I returned from the boat the hostel was full but he already had set a room in another place for the same price and a free ride to there.

Great location just two minute walk from all the bars and restaurants in the old quarter. Staff were very helpful, they booked onward travel for us and let us use the facilities at no extra cost after returning from a trip (they also stored our bags for free for three days!). We had a free upgrade to the honeymoon suite which had amazing views! There was also a good wifi connection throughout the hotel. Breakfast was great and there was free tea & coffee all day. Would happily stay again.

Really like this Hotell. It's near the lake, and there are a lot of commerce and restaurants arround, quite a nice area. The breakfast was really good! And they served us fruits and tea when we checked in, it was really kind. The girl from the reception, Anh, was adorable! Thanks for such a pleasant stay in Hanoi!

I really appreciated that upon my return from Ha Long Bay they made a room available to me for a few hours until my late night flight at no additional charge. It was nice to be able to take a shower and change in comfort. I really appreciated that.

Ideally located for exploring Hanoi, we walked to most places easily. The hotel staff were very welcoming and ready to help, nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend highly.

We stayed in this hostel for 2 nights but we could have easily stayed longer! A special thank you to the staff Tony and Ann who were so welcoming and probably the friendliest staff we have ever come across! They were always there to offer help and advice, which made things so much easier for us :) The room was spotless, spacious, had beautiful views from the window and was in a superb location. They helped us book our Halong Bay cruise as well as the night bus to our next destination, so we didn't have to l

We had a great time staying in Hanoi, espite our luggage not arriving with us! The staff (especially Ann) were lovely and extremely helpful in getting it back. They got in touch with the airport for us and we didn't have to do a thing. The trip that was recommended to us by Tony at Golden Time to visit Ha Long Bay and Cat Ba island was fantastic (and we heard mixed reviews from other travellers on similar trips from different hostels). Rooms are great and spacious and the location is perfect.

We spent 3 nights here and we have a pleasant time. The location is very near the lake and there're many shops and eating places around the hotel. The room is clean and they make up the room everyday. And the staffs're also very friendly, except they try to sell the tour, but it's ok because they don't give you too much pressure. About the breakfast, you can should only 1 dish. so it's not sufficient for me. I had baguette for 2 days, the 1st is really tasty but the 2nd is hard and cold.
