If you get the heat-box room with no ventilation - break the fan in your room so they bring another one, then fix the first one so you have 2 fans, then you only need 1 more.... There is a bar downstairs with friendly staff and travelers to talk to, but I don't like other people so I ninja'd past them and went upstairs to play with my fan's.
ooo I liked this one. Great location , good breakfast, free beach towels, wifi and air-con that worked and staff that were polite and helpful without being up in your business too much. Side note: $15 snorkeling trip is good value.
There seems to be boat loads of small hotel/hostel set ups in Hanoi old quarter. But this place separates itself with the staff and service, yet to be matched. What's that? don't have time for breakfast - slam take-away jam and bread in your hand . Side note: take them up on the free airport pick-up if flying in. Taxi will set you back $15-$20 and if on metre will probably take the scenic route...
Place is a bit run down but its got what you need and can't beat the location. Walls were so thin I could hear when the guy next door coughed or took a wizz, but that sought of added to the character.
location makes this place, walk to the station is fine. Confortable beds, friendly staff too. great stay.
good place this, right on the lake. Only thing to watch out for is missing the last bus to Iseltwald.
nicest dorm i've stayed in (clean, fridge, air con). breakfast worth the money.
LOCATION! perfect location, the rest is decent.
Good hostel. Staff are great, but the back dorms swelter ~ watch out for well spoken British chicks who steal the fan.
Nice Staff, great room (fridge, good wifi), awesome breakfast, deserves more than 100%.
This is a good value hotel. It's a fair way out(Zone 3) but close to the station (150m up the hill). Neighbourhood was fine; river close by, near Supermarket + good bakery, better cheap eats across the river. Staff excellent, not big talkers but friendly and saved us after we missed our train out.
