    Nice and professional staff, clean and comfortable beds, breakfast was also nice. Basically everything that you can ask for from a hostel. Free walking tour was okay. I also booked Hideaway island tour (Halong bay) organized by the hostel. Great place with unreal view. Had a great time with the group. Kayaking was awesome too :)
