    The hostel was everything you’d expect for a cheap price. Staff were very friendly and helped me to book a bus back to Hanoi. Mien was particularly wonderful, she cake and sat down with me to have a chat and we got on really well. The breakfast was great, rooms safe and clean, you even got a towel on arrival. Cannot fault the place.

    Happy hostel no longer exists. However upon arrival, they have moved to a new place called fancy hostel, 300m around the corner. We were upgraded for free by the nice staff. Feel free to book happy hostel but you won't be staying there.

    Overall a good stay for one night, we stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm with a bathroom attached... the bathroom left a lot to be desired! Felt dirty underfoot and the shower-head was broken. Beds were ok but bottom bunks seemed to have nice thick mattresses and top bunks had thin ones? Not enough plug sockets in the room. Staff however are AMAZING, really helped us out with getting there and were quick to respond on email. They offer free breakfast which is a nice perk. First beer free! Nice!

    The free breakfast is nice. You are basically paying for a bed, the breakfast, and shotty wifi. The walls and windows are paper thin and you can hear almost everything. Nighttime can get loud. But it's basically what we paid for.

    The staff here were lovely but the hostel itself wasn't the best. The bathroom wasn't too great and the bedroom had hardly any plugs... something which is an absolute must in 2018. But it was okay just for a night's stay.

    The hostel was good but the room didn't have any electricity when we arrived. The aircon was filthy and you almost didn't want to use it, despite the heat. Other than that, the staff were very friendly and the shops were near by. They were also very helpful in organizing trips and busses.

    This place is in serious need of work. Many of the lights dont work so it is really dark to walk around. The place is dirty and needs serious redecoration. Curtains around the beds would be nice. More plug sockets are needed near the beds. The bathrooms are in a dreadful condition, water randomly dripping. The glass in the door does not provide much privacy. The staff are mostly friendly however i arrived at dinner time so had a guy keep shout "passport" at me as i was unloading my bike.

    Bed bugs were welcoming us, stinky bathroom and ignorant staff. We would never recommend this place, not even to our enemy. We thought of the good reviews that it is a good place to stay - but not at all. We didn't feel comfortable from the first second. We changed the hostel in the middle of the night (provided by the hostel) - a cockroach paradise. At least we didn't have to spend a single penny. I hope we get the deposit back as well. Never ever again!
