Hanoi Brother Inn & Travel, Hanoi, Vietnam

20th Oct 2016

This place is great. Clean, comfortable and air-conditioned the rooms will not disappoint. The highlight of the place is the free breakfast served up by one of the excellent members or staff. These guys will do everything they can to make your stay a memorable one. Not a complaint but a heads up to solo travellers-the atmosphere isn't ideal for meeting people but not impossible. Still worth staying I'd say. Happy travels!

Place was good, good location, clean rooms with spacious beds. The staff were great and really accommodating. My only complaint is the place smelt of smoke throughout. They have plastic curtains to partition the smoking area from the non smoking but it serves no purpose and the result is stale smoke throughout. If you're not a smoker, prepare to be for your time here!

As per usual the staff see you as a walking ATM machine desite then nonchalant approach to getting around Luxor and dealng with its locals. they have a direct line to your pockets and a perceived trust by staying at their establishmentestablishment. Dont let this fool you. Other than that that itis comfortable and accessible.

Very well locaed, cool on hot Caro days and friendly staff. My only complaint one staff member (with glasses) tried discouraging me from taking metro to Pyramid. He told me I couldn't do it because I didnt speak Arabic. One of the many unscrupulous attempts to take my money however what bothered me was his unwillingness to help when I insisted I would take the metro despite his (misleading) advice.

This place is a dump in every sense of the word. It is old, rundown, cramped and very unclean. The staff are all Spanish immigrants who don't care about you or your stay, just socialsing amongst themselves and smoking. The place attracts some very creepy people who you must sleep with in very close, smelly quarters. Stay away from this place. It is more like a halfway house than a hostel.

Clean, family run place that has a barely average location. Nothing happening before or after dark in the area. Rooms are average with dated future. No atmosphere as this is a pension rather than a hostel. Good for a quiet stay.

I was given a sheet with a big yellow stain in the middle and although the staff member changed it he did so with a sour look on his face, as if it were my fault. The rest of the staff are all very rude and disinterested, save for a couple. One bathroom per 8 bed is very limited. The tours and activities that are offered are ridiculously overpriced as are the beds themselves. Not a bad place overral but if you want friendlier staff and better value then look elsewhere.

Was a hotel. Dorm rooms are a converted hotel room with bunk beds that offer none of the individual luxuries of other better equipped hostels. ie. Lights, outlets, lockers. Beds are tiny too and more for children. Would recommend if staying for use of the airport for the free shuttle and relative comfort.

Staff were very rude and unhelpful. Young girl with the glasses needs an attitude adjustment I also asked for a fan to be fixed in the room as it was unbearably hot and the night attendee really couldn't have cared less. Needless to ssay the fan wasn't fixed. Average location and clean so not all bad. Stay somewhere else for a better experience of the city.

Charging cards prior to arrival is deceiving and probably crosses a legal line. Siginging a list of rules is confontational and not in tune with the kind of traveler/hostel atmosphere.
