Fantastic hostel, clean and quiet and centrally located. Much quieter than Downtown, a bit of a party hostel but not a bad thing! Literally a twenty minute walk away from the Old Quarter or the Citadel, didn't even need to take a taxi anywhere. The free walking tour was a nice touch too.


The hostel itself is clean and good but I didn't see a helpful staff there. From the receptionist to the expats who work there, I had the impression they were more interested in their own fun than actually help the guests


This hostel is good if you fancy a party atmosphere. If not, I would avoid! I was here for the week of my birthday so it was perfect but there do tend to be a lot of disturbed nights. Otherwise everything was good!


Nice place with helpful staff and good beds.


The rooms are standard and clean but there was no toilet on our floor, so we had to go done in the lobby area. That wasn't pretty nice to do in the middle of the night wearing your sleeping cloth. The personal was very friendly. They didn't adviced us very well about the tours they offered. It was a bit annoying that we've paid to much for tours they weren't really worth it.

Nice hot showers, and clean rooms. Luggage storage if you need it. Fun bar upstairs that can be loud, but the party moves on at 9:30-10, so it's not a problem.


Loved this hostel! Party starts here but leaves at 9:30, so you can join or enjoy a nice quiet night. Huge lockers for all your stuff and the staff is pretty helpful with booking tickets. We also stayed at their brand new hostel in Sapa, Mountain View, which is even better! Definitely recommended these hostels!! Best in Vietnam!
