We stayed for over a week. Free breakfast! We were in a private with a clean room, tv, fridge and our own bathroom. The staff are friendly and helpful. Free use of computers is convenient. Wifi worked well for us. Good location in the old quarter, everything is walkable. We would recommend and stay here again!


Staff was helpful with where to go and called a taxi when needed, room was extremely simple, nothing extra but good enough for 2 nights .


Never again!!! NO Travel agency!!! No 24hour reception No check in at 10am as offered at hostelworld No or bad English speaking stuff Lot of trouble because the trip to the halongbay was completely different to the program they told us Good things: In the ancient quarter located Free tee and coffee Breakfast included


The location is about the only good thing about this hostel. We were scammed by the employees who lied about what they sold. Do not book anything with them as it is 1. Too expensive. And moreover 2. Not what you booked!. They show you very nice pictures but its all fake and they know it. And the worst thing is that they act as if other salesman would do it but they wont, and then you buy it from them while they look at you with a dirty smile.. No shame whatsoever!!
