Dorm room on the ground floor is very cramped. No room between bunks, and nowhere to put your bag. They have lockers but backpacks will not fit in. Breakfast in normal, eggs and baguette. Lots of problems trying to book extra nights. Need to sort out their reservation system. If you want to stay a few days, book all your days in advance. Do your research when it comes to tours to halong bay. Lily is lovely!

Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Dorms had just been refurbished when we arrived. Not too far a walk to the night life, and plenty of food nearby.

A very sweet hostel right in the heart of the Old Quarter, exactly where you need to be. Our double room was very sizeable, clean and the bathroom facilities were excellent, as was the included breakfast. Staff were super helpful and other than a bit of noise on our first night due to builders refitting a room we slept very well.

Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast is free, made to order, and very delicious! We had a 3-bed private, which was perfect for us (group of 3 girls). The sheets were changed daily and everything was very clean. Location is close to the weekend night market as well as the puppet theater in the Old Quarter. The neighborhood was also unexpectedly picturesque with lots of cute boutiques, cafes, food places, and art galleries. Definitely would recommend staying here!

Overall, excellent stay. Hoste is in a good location, without being too busy. Decent breakfast included, but I would like wi-fi in the room please!

All the rooms have damp!!!!! Nothing will dry not even your hair and your beds feel wet! The wifi is only down stairs and it's a big walk to the top floor with ur backpacks! Books all of ours for us which was good and got them cheaper. Airport pick up was also amazing as it's quite a way!!

Fab hostel with brilliant staff. Lily and David arranged all our trips including Halong Bay and Sapa along with open bus tickets to the south. Free breakfast included and good wifi in the communal area. In the Old Quarter just a short walk away from all the bars etc. We came back and stayed another night. Thanks! Jasmyn and David

Main thing about the hostel is the staff - David, Lily and Courage all go above and beyond what you would expect of hostel staff, and are extremely friendly. Dorms are fine but the private twin was the best value for money - if you're travelling in a two definitely go for one of them. The free breakfast is just another extra which makes this a really good hostel to stay in.

Nice recipience, but within the days the staff seemed to us to be too personal, even thought he tried to be friendly and help us in every case. It was nice to have free tea, coffee and fruits every day. The breakfast was ok, but we needn't to pay extra. The room was quite small but enough for 2 nights. Sadly we had no hair dryer in the room, not good at 20 degrees. It was also a little bit loud in the morning because the window was in direction to the room where everybody had breakfast.

Unless u r traveling for luxurious comfort (in which case you won't stay at a hostel anyway),stayin at LITTLE HANOI HOSTEL 1 is not even an option,but a MUST! Always tidy,comfortable,24/7 complimentary coffee/tea/fruits for its guests, as well breakfast in morning. Anything it lacks at all it makes up in SERVICE. Staff is really helpful & will help u arrange anything you need from bus tickets-tours-purchasin advice. DavidLuong Bui at reception is just amazin and now a friend! My Home in Hanoi!

I think, I've never experienced such a lovely welcome in a hostel. Lily is just awesome! I also really enjoyed the free coffee, tea and fruit all day long. People that stayed there were nice, beds comfy, really nothing to complain about.

The best hostel we've stayed at in Vietnam, and right at the end of our trip! The staff are very friendly and helpful, we organised a halong bay tour through them and were able to leave our backpacks at the hostel. We arrived at 8.30am off the night bus from Hue and they gave us breakfast and put us in a family room because the dorm beds we'd booked weren't free yet. Decent breakfast and free tea, coffee and fruit all day. Came back for 2 more nights after our halong bay trip. Highly recommended

We stayed in this place for 2 nights. However, David, the receptionist, organized all our trips including transportation to Halong Bay and Sapa. Both trips were very good value to money and we enjoyed them very much. The service has been absolutely fantastic.

Hot water does not last beyond 10mins. Staff was extremely friendly and approachable. They do not push you to buy tours from them but instead give you tips on how to spot scammers.

Very friendly staff, that don't want to sell you something, but is very helpful. When we returned after 7 days they immediatly remembered our names:) Furthermore all day there are fresh fruits and coffee for free avialable. Large luggage storage and having a shower, even if you checked out already, is no problem.
