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!


The hostel was good but not brilliant, so if you are looking for a hostel plenty of activities and backpackers atmosphere you will feel very confortable but in our case we were looking just for a place to sleep and the price&quality rate was not the best. We arrived at night from the airport and the staff didn't spoke english and we had to pay at arrival, no credit card and only dongs (that we didn't had because we came from the airport just one hour before...).


Good, clean, basic. Great staff

Staff on the desk are extremely helpful and always cheerful. Dorm rooms are good and clean, with bathroom shower delivering hot water constantly!!. The beds are actually quite comfortable, and the added bonus is every bunk has its own plug socket with reading light. Good effort ☺


Really nice here, great place to meet other travellers and staff are very nice. Free breakfast really good. Dorms slightly cramped but beds comfortable. Trips offered by the hostel very pricey, worth while shopping around elsewhere if planning on taking any trips, would stay here again


The hostel itself is average-there are cheaper ones available on the same road. They oversell it a tad with the whole 'rooftop bar' experience. The bar is tiny, and they shut it down really early. The rooms were quite dirty. I never saw the bathrooms being cleaned.Hot water rarely available, and the manager was extremely rude and sarcastic when I complained about this. All of the other staff were fantastic-it's just the manager who needs to work on her customer service skills, and attitude.


This is a wonderful hostel! Prime location. Very social but not overly so since the party moves their downtown location around 9:30pm. Would definitely stay there again and I'm recommending it to all of my friends who plan on comig to Hanoi!
