Central Backpackers Hostel - Old Quarter is version 2.0 of a firm fave on the Vietnamese travelling scene. It's a little more lively than the original, thanks to our daily parties, pub crawls and happy hours (with free beer!). You can get the lowdown on your next destination from other nomads in the common room or rooftop bar, and the travel desk's always happy to help with tips for exploring Hanoi. They'll also book you onto a free walking tour of the Old Quarter after you wolf down your free breakfast.


From Nội Bài International Airport, get the 17 or 86 bus from Sân Bay Nội Bài just outside the terminal. It'll take about an hour all in all, including a couple of minutes' walking once you get off at Trần Nhật Duật. We have free Wi-Fi, so once you settle in (reception's 24 hours) you can download the Grab app – Vietnam's answer to Uber but with motorbikes! Your ride can take you to cult travel spots like the Hồ Chí Minh Mausoleum in less than 10 minutes.

Extras and activities

If you feel like a change from phở, cook for yourself in the kitchen or order a Western-style dish from our on-site restaurant. Use our elevator to take your meal up to the rooftop and watch the southeast Asian sunset. For a change of scene, we organise tours if you've got your eye on a trek to the rice paddies of Sa Pa or a junk boat cruise through the jade green waters of Hạ Long Bay.

    Great place! Awesome location! Beds were pretty comfortable and there was good ac. It was a little loud at night so if you aren’t okay with being woken up once or twice this might not be your place. Free breakfast too and drinks at happy hour!

    Staff were amazing and the reps are great (especially Tabby). The rooftop bar at night is great for meeting people and getting free booze! Would recommend this for anyone who wants a decent social hostel with with a good atmosphere. They are also really good for giving you info on how to get places and will organise it for you so it’s stress free! Will be returning here when I go back to Hanoi.

    The staff were excellent and very helpful! Loved the free walking tour, it was very helpful having Wren and Jerrel show us around town. Free beer night is awesome and the Halong Bay tour was great with Johnny and the British girl (I forget her name! 😬) as our group leaders.

    Excellent location! Highly recommend eating the street food at Pho Tien around the corner. The walking tour was really interesting and very worth doing. Join the 11pm pub crawl for fun times. Rooms are pretty noisy due to bar/restaurant (we were on the 6th floor) but everyone left at 11pm if you’re wanting a quiet night. We met lots of super lovely backpackers here. Staff were hit and miss - some were so helpful and enthusiastic, others appeared to hate their job haha

    Not a huge fan. Found a bed bug in the bed after already sleeping in the bed. People there have their groups and aren't very open to making new friends. There are other hostels that are much better for the same price. Hideaway tour to haong bay that this hostel organizes is fun, would recommend the tour but not the hostel.
