The best hostel Ive been in Vietnam. Truly friendly staff, excellent deals, good breakfast, niece rooms :)
I booked a tour to haling bay (castaway) and sa pa. From your office you told me you could rent proper trekking shoes from sapa, but there was only sneakers and almost all of them were broken in one way or another.. and have people done saps who recommend it? For me you told that its ok to do haling bay first and then saps straight away.. Halong bay is 24 h drinking games and saps trek was quite hard.. almost everyone in my group were having hard times with trekking and i did it after castaway..
Building was nice, nice neighborhood. Room wasn't too big or comfortable, but ok.
Best hostel in Vietnam! Lovely staff, great rooms, great common room, great city, great food. Best thing in Vietnam
