Dirty rooms. We booked as we thought we staying at the "newly renovated" hotel. Instead we were taken to there other hostel on hang vai. Helpful staff though.
A good value budget hostel/hotel within walking distance of the main attractions of Hanoi. If arriving by air avoid the taxis and on leaving arrivals turn right and seek out the Transit shuttle buses. If you have hotel/hostel prebooked (recommended) show detail to driver and he will tell you cost. As a guide to be dropped off at Hanoi Hotel cost me 100,000 dong or just under $5.
The hostel had a great location with easy walking distance to all major attractions. We also booked a nice 3 day trip to Halong bay. The rooms were quite big, although carrying the luggage without elevator in the 3rd floor was a bit exhausting. Also the room we had after our trip, did practically have no daylight, which was however not a problem since we usually spent the day in the city. The free breakfast was also nice with eggs, fruits, yam, coffee...
Stayed for three nights, will return for some more nights after a trip to Halong Bay. 8 Beds, mixed dorm, 5 USD/night. Clean, good shower, toilet a little tight. Free Internet PCs (for non-smartphone travellers). Nice roof garden with free coffee/tea 24/7, free small breakfast (toast + fruit). Lockers, laundry service. Booked a tour with them incl. night on boat, night in beach bungalow, kayaking, feeding monkeys after steep climb, impressive cave. Worth the money, good choice.
Great water pressure in the shower. The egg and fruit for breakfast were nice too. The staff were helpful. I liked that each bunk bed has a pretty big locker where guests can store their things safely. Thanks!
Was a good located hostel but the lady at the reception was a bit rough. Breakfast was really great, a lot of variety and they cook you fresh omelet. The rooms ware in a good condition but you couldn't really lock your bed lockers and the don't really clean the bathroom. As well we found a huge cockroach in the dorm the first night. So over all except the nice breakfast and good location you can find cleaner and cheaper hostels in this area.
good value for money except when you checkout very early in the morning 6.00 am. The man who work there is impolite. and not professional.
