    This is a great hostel with a lot of good events and people to meet, including the staff who are all super friendly and welcoming! Brooke Lyn's city tour was especially good and I'd highly recommend going if you have the chance!

    Located in the old quarter, it was a perfect homebase central to everything. Definitely a loud party hostel if this is what you’re looking for. Facilities were clean, only downside was there was a lack of bathroom facilities for the amount of people staying here. Would stay again :)

    Free beer 7 - 8pm, the kitchen closes at 9pm but is quite cheap. The area is very touristic and quite expensive for Vietnam but still provides a lot to see. Hostel runs walking tours and tours to halong, sapa and ha giang if you're not sure about doing it yourself. Stephen made our halong trip amazing!

    Nice spacious rooms with lockers for luggage, very secure! Great breakfast which changes daily (could be a little later, currently 7-9.30am), great location and plenty of people to meet! The top bunks can be quite far from the wall but the beds were comfy and can be changed daily upon request. Bathrooms and rooms were very clean. There is little room to relax around the pool and there could be more space to socialize considering the size of the hostel but these are minor things overall.

    Beds are comfy, nice keycard entry into dorms, great location, friendly staff, free refills beer hour. Downsides are about 3+ rooms of 8-12 people share 3 toilets, which aren't the cleanest. Also free bfast is okay, but found hair the first day and a piece of metal the second, food in general is not great, but plenty of good restaurants and food stalls nearby.

    Great hostel with a great breakfast. My only input is the Sapa trip booked through the hostel was subpar and they should implement themed nights like pub trivia, beer pong tourney etc...
