Defenitly worth to visit; big beds (even in dorms), hot shower, clean,breakfast/coffee/thee and fruit for free. A good place to stay for people who travel alone/in small groups and would like to meet other people. The staff (David and Lilly) are both very kind and helpfull. You can ask them anything, they will always try to answer your questions.

I was so pleased with the accommodation and helpfulness of the staff at the hostel that I decided to book and stay an extra nights. It is clean, in a great location… just a short walk to the old city and the lake. Free breakfast. They can help you book tours.

The staff does everything in their power to please you. We we're to late to send an email to book our room again a few days later but they remembered that we were coming back on that date and they kept two beds free in the dorm. The breakfast is perfect for the money you pay, you have a lot of choice. And it's really clean, they clean the floor like twice / three times a day or something. You can easily meet people here! One of the best hostels I stayed in during my 7months of travelling!

Awesome hostel, really nice facilities and really nice people. The receptionist was a great joker but sorry for forgetting his name. I will definitely stay here when I return to Hanoi.

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.
