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.

Whether you want a social mixed dorm or a quiet private room (we've got singles, doubles and twins), you'll have a clean and comfy space with an en-suite bathroom. There's air con, hot showers and baths, as well as under-bed lockers and free linen.

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.

    I love this hostel and highly recommend! One of the best I’ve ever stayed at. It’s cheap, the beds are super comfy, and the staff are really helpful with booking tours and stuff. Also a fun bar crawl. I’ll definitely be back someday!

    Really enjoyed this hostel. The guests are super young but everyone was friendly. The beds are comfy, large lockers and nice showers, plus quite cheap. The free beer everyday isn’t the best but free for 1 hour. Booked the 3 day hideaway halong bay tour and it was a very young crowd but really enjoyed it even tho the weather wasn’t the best. A party vibe but we were still active each day.

    Had a great experience and the staff and the service are amazing. Forgot all of my jewelry at the Halong Bay tour but the woman Snow has been a great help and is doing everything she can to get the package to come to Ngai Trang before I’m leaving. She wouldn’t even let me pay for the shipping, she did that! Thank you!

    My only complaint about this place is that the AC unit in our room wasn't working the first 3 nights I was there! It started working just fine on my last night

    Mixed opinion on this place. The staff, food and beds are great. WiFi works really well. However the water stopped twice whilst we stayed there so we couldn’t wash our hands or shower. Also the top bar/restaurant has strobe lights that started suddenly and my friend is epileptic so we had to leave quickly. Met some great people, but it’s definitely a party hostel so don’t stay here if you want a quiet night!

    Very Good

    You get what you pay for. The rooms are okay although they turn air con off during the day which means they can get very warm. Beds aren’t that comfortable and bathrooms are wet rooms which doesn’t make showering very pleasant. The rooftop bar is really nice but a bit spoilt by them blasting d&b music from 6.45pm (until 11.30 which doesn’t make an early night that easy). The pub crawl was fun but they took us to a super expensive and bad bar at the end- drink at the beer corner instead.

    Mixed bag, they have a lot of things to do and the bar was cheap and had a great atmosphere, the beds were super comfy and the showers were great, but if clean is what you’re looking for this isn’t the hostel for you, a few small cockroaches in the bathroom and one night someone had obviously peed in the lift and it was left until morning so you couldn’t use the lift.
