The only bad thing - the room had no windows( it's good that you cannot hear the street noise, but if you wanna see the sun in the morning, ask for a room with windows). Great staff. Very good overall.
We really enjoyed our stay at Hanoi city hostel, The staff was very helpful at all times specially Hana":) thanks ". Location was perfect, room and breakfast a very good value for money, Internet at a good speed and tours are a a good price, even better than outside.
Definately good value for money. Staff helpful, but very keen to sell tours, although tour prices seemed good value.
This hostel was a great place to stay in Hanoi - clean rooms, good location (central and next to lots of delicious little Vietnamese restaurants) and cheap! The evening staff didn't seem particularly enthusiastic to be there, but the lady who works in the morning/daytime was so friendly and she had lots of recommendations for food, travel and sights, without trying to push expensive tours on us! Not much atmosphere but would stay here again.
Lovely hostel and lovely staff! Everyone very friendly and helpful! Rooms clean and tidy, and WiFi worked well on each level. We booked a tour to Sapa through the hostel, which we got a better deal than on the tourist desks in the town and a non-pressured sale!
Staff were very nice and helpful. Had some issues with water pressure in the shower, but other than that, the stay was wonderful.
Great hostel with very friendly staff. Breakfast was great and the rooms really clean

The staff were so friendly and ready to help us pick the best excursions tailored to our needs- i.e. not a party boat to Ha Long but not a boat full of old people! Free water, breakfast included, safe box in the room, toiletries provided GREAT! Only problem was extending our stay- when we arrived from our excursion in the evening the room still wasn't ready and the shower electrocuted our friend!!! They gave us a new room straight away. Also worth noting the water pressure drops from time to tim
We stayed in a private triple room with A/C and we liked it so much we stayed there again the second time we were in Hanoi. The staff are very friendly and helpful, speak good English, helped us plan our trip in Hanoi, and answered all our questions. The location is great for exploring the old quarter. The wifi and A/C worked great in the room. It felt very secure with 24/7 front desk staff and safety deposit boxes in the rooms. Nice, clean bathrooms with towels, soap, toothbrushes.
Hannah (and the other staff) were incredibly helpful in booking our tours around halong bay and sapa, including painstakingly finding transport for us over the busy public holiday period. We had a fantastic time on both trips, and the prices we paid seemed to be very reasonable compared to what others had paid for the same thing.
