I was lucky enough to get a room half price rates through hostel world. Great place to stay if you want to easy away from the backpack scene for awhile.
Very old and tired in our room and tv did not work however it was cheap so hey ho!
The room was covered in flies when we arrived, they tried to help but couldn't move us to another room because they were apparently full. They offered us a free night stay which we took, the staff were very understanding.
Hanoi has been warned by many hustlers always trying to scam you for money. Best is to avoid any tourist interaction: Transportation and accommodation. It is hard to find people who can tour you around without even getting ripped off from simplest boat ride to an island. You will get ripped off everywhere. Advice: stick with finding locals, expacts, transplants that will show you around, host you, even travel with you. I stay away from taxi's, boat tours, and last, boat tours.
everything is great except for clogged sink and unstable wifi.

Definitely one of the best places to stay in all of hanoi. Best service from excellent staff and many higher end hotels won't even be able to compare. Highly recommended to everyone.
We've got the Hostelworld deal so it was excellent value for money. Nice average hotel (it is a bit old nothing fancy), staff is really friendly and helpful, well located.
Very good & clean. Facilities in working order. Better than what I was expecting for the price I paid. New Vision Hostel was converted from old building, but floors, walls, toilet, water heater, bed all fully clean & working well. Location was excellent. Near to the Ho Guom Lake and also to the main shopping streets and also near (walk) to most of the museums, water puppet theatre, etc. I took a public bus (No 17) from the airport to the Hanoi bus station, and walked to the hostel (follow GPS).
Pretty cheap trough the special offer, but the normal price is to high for the qualaty of the hostel.

This was a very hostel rirght in the centre of things Only thing that was down side was the tour to halong bay not good value for money try around outside
The staff here are very friendly and helpful. We arrived super early on the train and practically woke up the staff but they made us comfortable in the lobby until the room was ready. Kept bringing us hottled water to drink which was nice. Booked a halong bay cruise through the hotel and they also helped arrange our flight to laos and were very helpful and informative. Booked back in after halong bay. 2 different rooms and both very nice, good shower too. Fresh fruit is placed in the room too
The breakfast contains only of food, and if you don't want salad for breakfast you're left with only having eggs. The atmosphere is not very nice, but the staff is helpful. The rooms are very damp and dark.
I cannot fault the staff they are so helpful and cannot do enough for you. To the staff keep up the brilliant work that you do as you make everyones stay a wonderful experience.
Cannot fault this hotel. Staff in particular very attentive & helpful. Stored are luggage several nights while we were away. Arranged all our trips.
I have found that the staff are amazing and cannot do enough for you, they have been so nice that we have extended our stay here
Awesome staff here! I booked trips to sapa and halong bay with them at a very good price and everything was as I had hoped for . . . .free breakfast and the hotel is spotlessly clean, would highly recommend! !!!
The staff was very attentive and great. The breakfast could use improvement, more fruit and Western choices. I was there during Tet New Year, and the staff gave us dinner since everything would be closed. Very informative of what was and was not possible during this time. Booked a Halong Bay cruise through them which was also very good. You would never know from the attentiveness of the staff that they were largely missing the holiday. Fresh fruit delivered every day.
Nice location and very friendly staff. Breakfast is a bit iffy- we have had better at hostels as it was quite old here in our opinions, but it's not the end of the worlds Smells of cigarettes, but most places do in south East Asia, so don't let that put you off. Great value for money and would stay again
Staff were very attentive and kind. The tour desk was great and it was very quick and easy for us to plan our time in Vietnam. The hotel room was clean, no problems at all. It is a quiet hotel and perfect to use as a base for when exploring Hanoi.
