    I really enjoyed my time at Hanoi Buffalo Hostel! I was only there for a few nights, but it seemed like a really cool place to hang out if I was in Hanoi for longer. The staff was friendly and helpful and the entire check-in and out procedure was easy. The facilities are basic (and the hostel can be a little loud/lively at night) but they were kept clean.

    My only comment would be there is not really a common area to mingle and meet people. There is a pool which is great, but no seats around it or anything so you can't really hang by the pool. Great location though!

    The staff here are awesome. I accidentally left my AirPods on the bed and when I came back the next day, they had saved them for me. Amazing!!! We were booked for 3 nights but checked out the next day because the bed was super hard. The free beer during happy hour was gross. Everything else was great. I can’t grade how social it is because it was during the Corona virus so I’m assuming there are usually more people.

    I was supposed to stay here for 5 days but they closed the hostel the next day and asked me to find a new hotel. They said its a management decision and was very inconvenient for me. They should think about customers as well and atleast honor their existing bookings. All this happened due to corona virus scare

    On arrival of my 1st night I was told that the hostel would be closing due to concerns of COVID-19, was supposed to stay 4 could only stay 1. While I understand the safety concerns - I had not been notified prior to arriving (8pm). Staff refused to assist with finding alternative arrangements. I was told that this decision had only been made that morning, but looking on reviews here I see it happened days before. O Quan Chuong Homestay and Coffee took us in that night - great hostel to stay in!
