    The best hostel in Hanoi! The staff are beyond great and superhelpful! Really nice place for solo travelers! Excellent breakfast buffet, really enjoyed my stay. I rang them when I came to the airport and told them that I forgot my charger at their hostel. What they did? They ordered a grab bike, and paies him to drive to the airport and give it to me. They really deserve a rating 12/10!!!

    Amazing location, very helpful staff, great atmosphere and brilliant facilities. I stayed in a private room and it was like a hotel with a hostel atmosphere (the best of both worlds). I had so much fun here and met a lot of great people. My only regret is that I had to leave!

    This hostel is truly great. Amazing free breakfast. Free beer for an hour free pub crawl and free tour. If you stay in a 6 bed you also have awesome ensuite bathroom with a super nice shower. I really recommend

    Really great hostel best place I stayed on my whole tour of south East Asia, beds are really comfortable and there's a free bar crawl that joins up with another hostel each night at 10:30, also free beer for an hour between 7-8 each night, they don't play music too loud so you can actually talk to other guests and make a good few friends, also a fantastic base to work from if you want to do the ha long bay or sapa tours. Special shout-out to Steve and Tabby for being great hosts

    Such a great place to stay! I have stayed here twice in my time in Vietnam and wouldn’t think to stay anywhere else! All the reception staff are so lovely and friendly. There is a lift to help with heavy luggage and the staff always make sure that you are happy! The swimming pool is lovely and breakfast there are lots of options! :)

    As a solo traveler, I had a great time at Hanoi Buffalo! I'm typically very introverted but was able to easily meet people during the free walking tour and happy hour. Most of the travelers I met were very social and enjoy having a good time. The rooms had comfy beds and AC. The bathroom in the all female room was clean, and the water pressure was strong. The staff was friendly and helpful. The daily breakfast buffet was always high quality and delicious! I would highly recommend this hostel.

    Hostel was amazing, really good for socialising with other travellers. The location is perfect with beer street and street food on your door step. We did the free walking tour and pub crawl, both were excellent. The staff were really helpful and helped sort us out with sim cards and the free beer is always a bonus. Pool and bar area were really handy when the hot air got too much. We slept in 2 different dorms and both were really clean alongside the bathrooms.

    Great breakfast - staff is very friendly and helpful - they have a wonderful room that’s blocked off from the main sitting area in case you want more of a quiet space. Loved it especially for a hostel in the city!

    Generally, that's a good hostel with great facilities - the beds were very comfortable, the shower was great and everything was super clean. The only problem is miscommunications we had a few times with the team. It was hard to explain our needs and I mostly felt like I'm not being understood.
