This was the best hostel I have been in Vietnam so far. The atmosphere is great. The bar helps you contacting new people, they offer good food and the staff is very helpful. A small drawback may be, for some people, the noise downstairs, but it really pays back as it is The Place to hang in Hue!
The best of this hostel is, without a doubt, its location, in the middle of the Old Quarter. It's not the cleanest place on the Earth, but is worth the price. The owner is a cool guy, full of knowledge, nice to have a chat with. Even though there is not common place it was quite easy to meet people in there and it really helped have a nice time in Hanoi.
I spent there two nights and I can tell it's an awesome hostel. We stayed in the 12 people dorm and in spite of that we felt secure and comfortable. The atmosphere is excellent and you can get great meal deals in the zone. Definitely a must-go when you visit Beijing!
Far away from the center, but what isn't in London? The bar is cool, but the rooms and the showers aren't really clean. Average hostel, the cheapest in town.
