    Great hostel, who doesn't like free beer! The pub crawl is great fun too and ideal for meeting the rest of the hostel. Definitely recommend the walking tour, Ruby and Rel were both awesome! The tours from reception are also very well priced and great fun. We did Sapa and Halong bay and would definitely recommend!

    Had the best stay at Central Backpackers. The staff are all so welcoming and really go out of their way to help you! We booked their ‘Hideaway’ Halong Bay tour and it was the best experience! I really recommend this tour as it has the perfect balance of fun and stunning views! Such a good price for what you get. 👌🏼 After hideaway, we booked to go to their sister hostel in Phong Nha and they organised everything (even with a discount for the savvy travellers!) All in all, worth every penny!

    A bit above average. 4bd dorm is kinda small but the ac does run pretty cold. I was on the 7th floor and it is kinda noisy in the morning due to the close proximity to the kitchen and just below the bar above. Atmosphere is alright, more of a bigger hostel vibe and that they encourage you to go on our crawl with them. But people are social.

    Stayed at central backpackers after booking the hideaway tour. The staff were so friendly and helpful, they explained all the different tours and options and helped us book transfers, the sister hostel and tours. They really couldn’t have done any more to help us. The hideaway tour was great fun. A good balance of drinking and partying whilst seeing great scenery. Kayaking and swimming around Halong Bay was an incredible experience. Thank you!

    Fantastic location in the Old Quarter, close to a lot of amenities and restaurants. Excellent staff, super helpful and keen. Free breakfast sounds good but the food is pretty simple and not that tasty, better off getting some street food instead. Fun atmosphere. Free beer every day is a nice bonus as is paid laundry service with next day turnaround. Beds are very comfortable and rooms are pretty nice with good AC & fans. Showers are a little grotty, spotted a couple roaches in there. Good value.

    Very Good

    11 Aug 2019
    The rooms were clean and had good privacy curtains. Storage lockers were big and room had good AC. The restaurant food is AWFUL. The Western, European and Viet-Thai food was neither authentic or as advertised. The staff upstairs will take forever to get your food/drink and are very lazy. We witnessed the tour booking manager argue with a customer that was left astray on the Ha Long Bay trip. TLDR; This place has poor customer service but the rooms are good.

    Went here because we wanted a good party vibe - the bar was pretty good (doubles £3, cheap beer) and each night the hostel ran bar crawls to the local bars. As far as the rooms go, you get what you pay for! Showers were weak, no bath maths etc, rooms dark and dingy and not enough space to put your stuff. The bathrooms were cleaned every day though which was good. Wouldn’t advise staying in Hanoi any more than 3 days, we made the mistake of staying for 10 days and couldn’t get away fast enough!
