Looking for the perfect location in Hanoi? Vietnam Backpacker Downtown Hostel is right in the heart of the Old Quarter. Did we mention we're the biggest hostel in Vietnam?

The Ngọc Sơn Temple and Hàng Đậu Water Tank, both must-sees, are a 10-minute walk away. If you're coming from Nội Bài airport, the airport shuttle bus will only set you back a couple of dollars. Get off at the Vietnam Airlines office on Quang Trung Street, then it's a quick taxi to us (hang on to your valuables!).

We have mixed and female-only dorms as well as private rooms, and you can get to them all by elevator. Oh, and bed linen's on us, so you can save packing space for cool souvenirs.

    Started off my trip to Vietnam in Hanoi with a pretty brutal cold so didn’t see as much as I’d like, but the beds were comfy and clean. (Part of the cleanliness is because housekeeping comes in pretty early and often and makes a lot of noise- so if your are hungover don’t forget your mask/earplugs!) Good social vibe, right near beer street and the hangout room is super chill. I would stay here again if in Hanoi!

    The hostel was well located and had top notch cleanliness, security and atmosphere. The only downside for me was that there was no community kitchen. Would have preferred this facility

    great location, it’s right where all the action is. It’s also a great choice if you wanna party. Facilities were great, i also like the choices for their free breakfast. The staff were a mixed bag. Most of them were really helpful but some clearly prioritized other guests. It’s also a huge hostel so it does get cliquey. Might not be a good choice for solo travelers who are shy. It’s also not the cheapest option in hanoi. Not saying it’s overpriced. Just that some cheaper places are just as good.

    Large party hostel for people with non existing standards. Beds are good, music will stay on full volume until midnight though. Nothing for the light sleeper.

    Good hostel if you like a party. Perfect location and staff were quite helpful overall. Only issue was the noise and a drunk man walking into our room at night which was pretty terrifying
