Staff were so helpful and friendly. Free breakfast was a good start to the day. Would stay here again.
Good hostel in a good location. Helpful and funny staff, yet they seem to forget who you are because "foreigners all look alike". The dorm I stayed in was a bit cramped but beds are excellent. Booked a tour with them to Sapa, which was a bit disappointing but, after hearing my review, the hostel immediately called the tour operator for an explanation and apologized.
The staff are amazing here...especially Lily! It's a good hostel with some good points and some bad points. Sadly the dorm is on the ground floor at the back so no natural light and not much space. There is no communal area other than the dinning area/reception area. Free breakfast is good, free fresh fruit all day is awesome. Wifi is pretty good. Once again staff are awesome and if it wasn't for them I would have probably gone elsewhere just cause of the lack of space. Also only two toilets.
On my 5am arrival, I was offered a shower and breakfast at 7am free of charge. I left my bags with them as I had booked the Halong Bay tour and wasn't staying here until the following night. Yet I was still treated well, as if I was! My laundry was done by the time I got back. Rooms a little squashed ie not much floor space but beds good and spacious. Would stay again.

David and Lily are very helpful receptionists! David invited me to his wedding and I went with the hostel staff. It was a very great surprise. They are very helpful to book for you. They also will help to fetch you a cab and negotiate a price with the driver.
Little Hanoi Hostel tries to (and succeeds at) making your stay in Hanoi enjoyable and smooth. It's quieter than some of the other party atmosphere Hanoi hostels - not saying that in a negative way - just FYI. It's a great value.
We had a lovely stay at Little Hanoi Hostel, the staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and at home and helped us with rearraning our trip last minute. We would definitely recommend staying here!
Extremely friendly staff. Very helpful and informative. Coffee and tea is a nice touch as well as free breakfast! Great stay. Highly recommended.
Great Hotel, very cheerful and very helpful english-speaking staff. Located in the core of Hanoi, most sites can be reached by foot.

I'm Korean staying in Little Hanoi Hostel 1. Every staff is so friendly and kind. Good location, Good speaking english guys. reasonable price. You don't worry about travel with Little Hanoi. I strongly recommend you.
Loved this hostel! The staff were so friendly and helpful. I stayed for a week and half, and booked a Sapa trip through the front desk. Everyone was so helpful. It was walking distance to the lake, museums, etc, and there was free breakfast every morning. My favourite part...unlimited free coffee! I'd avoid the dorm (a bit noisy, not a nice bathroom) and get a private room (very nice and very cheap). Overall: highly recommended, mostly due to the wonderful staff.
I stayed in the dorm and in a private room. The private room are very good. The place is very clean. But as everywhere in vietnam you find some cockroach who snake into the rooms lol. But nothing bad. The breakfast is good. And the staff is lovely. They make everything to make your life easier and to make you feel at home. I really enjoyed staying at Little Hanoi. I would definitly recommand this hostel. And we did the Sapa and the Halong Bay tour with them and it was great.
Great hostel in the heart of Hanoi. Hostel crew is very friendly and so helpful, they will do the maximum to facilitate your stay.
Staff are so friendly, couldn't ask for nicer people to introduce you and will do the most they can to help you!
nothing to complain about, good location, fair price, pleasant staff. Breakfast was basic but nice, and the free coffee and fruit was a nice touch. We ended up staying in a twin room rather than a double as we arrived super early (5am) and it was available. Were offered the chance to swap back after the first night but decided it was easier to stay where we were.
One of the best hostels wev stayed in Vietnam staff are so friendly and helpful the location is brilliant only a 5 minute walk from the Main Street for bars. The fantasea halong bay tour we booked through the hostel was superb. Would highly recommend 3 days 2 nights, the food on board was incredible and the whole tour brilliant. The hostel let us leave our rucksacks with them while we went on the tour, very safe place and highly recommend.
I can't recommend Little Hanoi Hostel enough really friendly helpful staff happy to help and point me in the right direction for nice friendly food and beer! they helped me arrange an awesome trip to Ha long bay and even though I had checked out a few days earlier the gave me a towel and shower whilst waiting for my overnight train! Thank you so much!!
This is a really good hostel if you want a social and laid back atmosphere, but not a party place. The staff was INCREDIBLY friendly and helpful. The front desk staff speak very good English. I really enjoyed by stay here.
A bit rundown, in our room cockroaches and no window. But Lilli was very nice, we could change our room to a room with window but a bit smelly. The tour to halong bay with elation cruise was very nice, good boat and room on the boat, nice food, mainly seafood, highly recommendable! We did two days one night.
Great place. The stuff is so friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again...
