Very clean rooms and lockers available for large dorm rooms but not the smaller one we were moved to. Staff were friendly and helpful, booked a trip to Halong Bay through them and both price and experience were perfect. Breakfast included was lacking but hey it was free! Would recommend as a good base to explore this part of Hanoi.
Excellent hostel, staff are super friendly and extremely helpful, great breakfast is included and the place is spotless! I would definitely recommend the little Hanoi Diamond Hostel.
There´s no better place to stay at in Hanoi. The location is great and the hostel including the breakfast excellent. But most of all the staff makes the place. They are all so friendly and take care of you whenever they can. They even had a birthday cake for my boyfriend - so there is hardly nothing more to add. Also the tours to the Halong Bay they offer are excellent - trust them, it is well worth!
Hostel/ Hotel was clean. Only one front desk staff member was super friendly and spoke fluent english; had a bit of trouble communicating with the night/early morning staff, but it is to be expected when travelling to another country, so not a huge deal. Front desk staff was more than helpful booking excursions and taxis. Breakfast in the morning was absolutely wonderful and much appreciated! Everything around the hotel closes around 11pm, so be aware of this if arriving late!
Overall a nice and well located Hotel! Compared to other Hotels in the same price range, the breakfast is pretty rich. The staff is very nice and the rooms are clean. We were just a little unlucky with the rooms they gave us: one was without a window and the second one was on the sixth floor (no elevator) and wasn't in the best condition. Still i'm fine with the decision to stay here.
Dorm room was massive the nicest dorm we've stayed in it had tv
Very happy with our stay in this hotel. Very close to a lot of bars/restaurants/street food vendors but still quiet. Staff extremely helpful,we also booked our train ticket to Danang and Halong Bay tour through the hotel and both worked out perfectly.
Before checking out I have left some comments on the provided in the room form and I have received an immediate answer from the manager. The problem was: room located in the basement with no window and next to breakfast area which was terribly loud from 6.20am. Otherwise, very good location in the Old Town and friendly staff.
I cannot say anything bad about this place, except for one of the guys that works there. He usually works the night shift and looks like he was charles mansons asian twin brother. He was alright when it comes to friendliness but always asking me if I want prostitutes and how much money I have. Make sure you hide your money as it might go missing if he knows your coming back late and drunk on your last night. But the hotel was good overall, except no windows in my room.
Excellent hotel right in the middle of the Old Quarter! No real hostel-vibe, so look elsewhere for the party crowd. But if you're looking for a quiet spot to escape from the madness of the Old Quarter this is the place. Squeaky clean, hot water, good beds & breakfast and lots of Hanoi highlights within walking distance. The very friendly staff can help you out with nice tours to Halong Bay and Sapa. Highly recommended for a stay in Hanoi!
it was pretty good. I was offered breakfast on my check in..this was very nice. A wonderful welcome. The chef however didnt kow what vegetarian meant so had to make my VEGEtarian omlette without HAM on three occasions. but he was kind and very patient. I will stay here again.
Centrally located in the Old Quarters about 10 mins walk from the Hoan Kiem Lake. Arrived earlier than the check-in time & was warmly welcomed by Zoom (you truly are awesome) + coffee/tea/fruits! The staff is helpful & great - helped arrange for tours & airport transfer. USD6 for a comfy bed, AC, clean towel, spacious & neat 8-bed hostel room (& bathroom), & decent breakfast - can't ask for anything better than that! Definitely coming back here again. Cheers!
This hotel made me feel like home every single day in Hanoi. Amazing staff specially zun at the front desk :)) who allows me to do an early check in in another room until i have mine ready!! extremely clean, many options of breakfast every morning, good wifi, very safe room, good location and good price!! Also you can book every tour at halong bay and sapa for a reasonable price and good service :)) Thanks for an amazing service!!
What a super place! As the name suggests, it is a "little diamond"! I can't fault this place and the staff are stand out! Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. How they managed to personally remember names so quickly I have no idea! Thoroughly recommend this perfect place!
Stayed twice. First time, the staff were lovely, and it's a really nice hotel (not really the atmosphere for a hostel). The Ha Long Bay tour they booked us on didn't seem to know we'd paid for deluxe rooms, so watch for that. Second time, the staff weren't quite so awesome, and there also seems to be inconsistencies about whether they provide a free transfer from th do airport (they did once out of two stays).
Great hostel. The staff speaks perfect english. The rooms are comfortable and clean. They also serve an amazing free breakfast. I highly recommend this hostel.
friendly and very helpful staff made our stay very comfortable. Reception offers good tours to Halong Bay and SaPa, not to expensive, good value. We would stay there definitely again.

We stayed only one night in a Double bed room before leaving to Sapa. It was very comfortable with bathtub and everything. And it's quite quiet compared to another place we stayed. They offered us the train ticket with good price (74$). The staffs are friendly and speaks sufficient English. We didn't return when we got back to Hanoi but It's good and comfortable so far.
