    Staff is amazing. Free breakfast basically covers the price of the bed. Each bed has privacy with its own outlets and lamp. Chang is great. Very knowledgeable and knows everything there is to do. Recommended spots off the beaten path.

    Amazing hostel. Clean, spacious, big locker, perfect location, privacy in the bunks, free beer, staff is friendly and helpful, amazing spot to meet people. It a great mixture of people who want to party and people who just want a good nights sleep so whatever you're in the mood for this is the place to be. Shout out to Marie who hung out with a bunch of us solo travelers before a pub crawl one night and got the party going. I don't think you'll find a better place to stay in Hanoi.

    This hostel was so fun and everyone was so welcoming. There is free beer every night during happy hour (7-8) before a bar crawl at 10:30, where i met some amazing travelers to spend time with while in Hanoi. Also the free breakfast is scrumptious. Jack Bingham was especially kind, and took me on a tour of the Old Quarter when i had no idea how to spend my day, and told me some history of the area and where best local spots were. Buffalo has vibrant people and a stellar vibe (~:

    My boyfriend William and I had the best time at Buffalo, 10/10. The staff played a huge role in our Hanoi experience! Marie took us on a fun walking tour, Alex from Central was with us in Ha Long Bay and made the trip so much fun, and Jack and Selma were awesome as well. They all ended up being our friends! Best hostel ever.

    Location is amazing and easy to find. The dorm rooms are spacious with secure lockers and good curtains for a good nights sleep. Breakfast had all you needed. There was a good social feel too. The Hideaway excursion is booked through the main desk.. it was fantastic, well run and lots of fun even for a married couple travelling.
