Horribly rude staff. To busy playing on there smart phones or computers to give a damn about being helpful. Don't book tours or train tickets with them as the mark up is pretty substantial. Go to the train station and buy your ticket there and save yourself 15-20 bucks. Bed sheets are stained from God knows what and there is mold in the bathrooms. The location is the only thing this place has going for it.

Dear all reader in the world. Thanks for wrote a review on hostel. Totally, the guest do not come to check-in & stay at May De Ville Backpackers Hostel. That`s mean the guest can not wrote review on hostel.com. The review from some other hostel book our hostel and try to wrote bad review for May De Ville Hostel. Hope all reader know this information. This is not review from guest stay with us. Manager of May De Ville Backpackers Hostel.


Not a Backpackers, it's a hotel. Not good for meeting people.


The best thing about this hostel is its location. It's right in the middle of the Old Quarter, which is convenient if you're looking to shop at markets, find both touristy and street food, and go to bars. Its downside is that it doesn't really have a common area where backpackers can gather, even though it advertises a game room. No one was in there when we stayed. The dorm rooms are really awkwardly shaped--long


The staff was way too pushy on what I should do in Hanoi. They basically were about to book all these trips for me without even asking if that was what I wanted to do. I can't stand when staff are trying to sell trips left and right without even asking the customer what they want.


Great hotel in small Hanoi Ally. Very impressive for dorm room hostel. Breakfast included and good wifi. Close to everything in old quarter.
