Good location, very clean, buffet breakfast included. Only thing, dormitory very small, room looks like a corridor... But still a nice place to stay.


Mostly very good, poor exchange rate on my Aussie $.. And a very damp room..Mold and smelly..


5 $/night for dorm + good breakfat sounds great. Yes, it's quite cheap place to stay comparing to what you get - good bed, clean room with ac, travel desk, good location etc. But! The toilet & bath-rooms are weird!!! I mean it's not smart to do the toilet/bathroom doors without lockers and the wall made of glass is not good as well. You should change these 2 weaknesses. Everything else is good :)


Great hostel! Only minus was that the room was so narrow.


Loved this place, arrived after spending a few more uncomfortable nights in Laos hostels and stayed in the private room. Couldn't have asked for more, the bathroom was lovely, nice strong hot shower and the bed was massive in our room. Booked a Halong bay tour through the hotel and stayed in the dorms when we got back. Internet is a bit choppy but fast when it is working. Would definitely recommend to anyone traveling in Hanoi.


I ww looking for a chilled-out hostel and intending to do my partying elsewhere, and that's what I got. The lounge area is great for chilling in and staff are helpful with booking onward travel. The place is quiet when you want to sleep. Beds are flimsy though, so a restless bunkmate means little sleep...


All in all great location, very clean, helpful staff, enough computers for a change and nice breakfast. It is not really Backpackers-like though; moroever a hotel with bunkbeds. Or a hostel with marble floor and no socializing. If you want a clean bed in a good location- that's your place!


Great location for the old town, lake, museum, etc... Very helpful staff (although shop around for Halong Bay trips, hotels and hostels will be more expensive as they need to get a cut of the profits too) Very clean rooms. The ensuite bathroom in the dorms don't have locks though, which is a bit weird. Not a very social hostel and despite having a pool table and movie room, people don't seem to socialise here. But very clean and comfortable and safe and great location!


Really clean and comfortable place in a great location. Staff were friendly and helpful. Showers were amazing. Would definitely recommend!


For $5 a night (for 7 nights in a month), this hostel is amazing. The dorms are a little narrow but beds are good. There's a games and movie room on the 2nd floor which is nice to hang out in. Free breakfast in the morning is pretty good too.


Cheap dormitory but don't expect more than the price. Good location, good people. I was just surprised by the atmosphere. This is not at an hostel. The dorm where I was was small and not very adapted for backpackers... anyway. good place.
