Great Hostel, Excellent and very Helpful staff!
The staff here is mostly one person, Lily, and she manages to be 3 top-notch people in a busy environment. My room was a huge double, a real bargain. Breakfast was basic, but adequate. AC controls were in rough shape, and in Chinese. Wifi was a problem, many of us often not able to log on---they are aware of it, and say they are on it. For me, it became an issue, so they graciously transferred me to their sister place--Little Diamond, with equally nice and caring staff.
It had what every traveller needed 😊 One niggling thing, the wifi was temperamental so if that's a huge thing for anyone then look somewhere else but other than that it was pretty decent 😊
Pobably the most friendliest staff ever. Alsways happy to chat and help! Good breakfast for free. Room was ok but clean. Would def recommend it!
Stayed 3 nights in a 6 mixed dorm ensuite. Good location, clean, well organized, smart & friendly staff. Would stay here again.
Great hostel! The staff are really good, they organised a tour and our train tickets for our next destination with no hassle at all. I would recommend this hostel for your stay in Hanoi.
I first stayed here and it was great. Only complaint is the shower in the dorm bathroom downstairs isn't separate so everything gets wet. Staff is super helpful and nice but I recommend shopping around for better tour prices at any of the shops nearby. Wifi works in lobby only. Got switched to the Diamond hotel after a few days which was also good but had to go up six floors of stairs with no lift!
My stay at the hostel was great! The staff, especially Dave, are all amazing and very helpful. There is only one dorm but I had no trouble meeting people. The rooms were clean and the free breakfast was delicious! The only thing I could suggest is a door on the dorm room itself (although large lockers are provided). Thanks! :)
I`ve been in many hostels, but here is the most helpfull staff of all over the world!!! David and Lilly are just fantastic - if you need info about anything just ask them. All the hostel is in good condition, clean and there is also nice breakfast in the morning. Coming to Hanoi there is no. 1 choice not only for the backpackers.
We loved Little Hanoi. Excellent location in the old town meant we were in walking distance of everything. The hostel is very comfortable and clean, and offers a good breakfast and best of all ,tea and coffee available till the late hours. The staff are great,very friendly and extremely helpful. Thank you to Lily and David for making us feel so welcome,we would definitely stay again.

the staff was very welcoming and helpful in any kind concerns. booking trips was very easy and good value. everything was well organised and worked out well! thanks Lilly and Dave :-) the athmosphere at the little hanoi hostel was also very nice and it's easy to get to know new people.
The staff was really helpful and did everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Helped to find excursions that would fit what you were looking for and were very friendly. Rooms are clean, look nice (esp. the doubles at the front) and there are spacious closets for your luggage. Minibar, bathtub and A/C in rooms.
Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed our stay in Little Hanoi! The staff are very helpful and knowledgeagble especially Dave who always has a smile on his face and made us feel very welcome! Location is excellent where you are right in the heart of the city yet still quiet when in the room! Free Internet/Free Fruit/Free Breakfast and Free Tea as well!!
Great start in Vietnam. Was greeted super friendly by the staff and felt at home right away. Especially receptionist David is a hero with so much info on Hanoi and Vietnam. Always had a good advice at hand and probably the most knowledgable and honest guy in tourism in Hanoi. Clean hostel, breakfast and right in the Old Quarter - and the price is right. Will stay again.
The place is perfect to rest and sleep with great size room and nice facilities. But the wifi doesn't go to your room not even in the dining room which is near the lobby room (where the wifi works). The staff is charming and the food is delicious. The only downside is the high price of the trips they offer you. We booked Sappa and Halong bay in another place for 100$USD less. Except that, great place to go!
This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! The staff are beyond helpful, booking me day trips, train tickets etc. the room is so cheap and nice and you get a massive free breakfast everyday! I've based myself there as there are a lot of places near by to visit and spend 1-2 days at and they hold your luggage for free so all I have to do is take a day bag with them! Love them!

Thanks to Lilly and David for being so accommodating! Though we were transferred to the Little Diamond Hotel on our last night in Hanoi, I would have preferred to stay on the hostel. But it's ok though. They've arranged everything. We also enjoyed the Bai Linh Pagoda (though it is unfinished yet and just quite new) and the eco-tourism tour.
Great value for money. The hostel is clean enough for Hanoi and the breakfast is nice. Also cool that you can have a beverage anytime through the day. Staff is helpful and willingfull and always looking after you. I messed my check-in and they did not charge me for the night.
