Overview

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? Our guests love us for our bar, where there's a party every night and TVs so you won't miss out on your favourite sports. There's a free beer up for grabs for everyone, too, every night. We'll even set you up with a free breakfast in the morning after to help you shake off any lingering self-imposed headache (hey, it happens!).

Location

We're just around the corner from busy Hàng Buồm, so take a quick stroll to have your pick of bars and scrumptious street food stalls. 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!).

Rooms and Dorms

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. Log onto our free Wi-Fi once you're settled in and keep your friends back home updated with your juiciest travel gossip. To keep you comfortable on warm nights, we've got air con and we'll keep you topped up with free water refills.

Extras and activities

You'll get a stellar view on our rooftop terrace. Inside, we've got a chill-out floor with a pool table, foosball and comfy seating. You'll also have free access to computers to decide on your next destination. Join us on our free nightly pub crawl to soak up the best of the local nightlife, or get in on one of our other events.

    Another great social hostel, with themed events every night! The staff are all fantastic, making an effort to get everyone involved with different games. VBH as a chain also helps you plan your trip through Vietnam if you’re wanting that stress taken off your hands! Finally, the topper is the great free breakfast with cheap additions to cure your hangover!

    Awesome hostel! Can’t really fault it. Bar atmosphere was a little on and off at times but otherwise super easy to meet people. I did the castaways tour - a lot of fun but there are better tours if you actually want to admire Ha Long Bay (and not just completely lose your mind)

    Great location in centre of all bars. Good atmosphere on most days as it’s a big hostel. Staff were ok. Marek was great. One was bit of a tool (not naming names). And one of the local staff happened to laugh at my misfortune which I was not happy about. Like most VBH’s think dorms are overpriced as is bar and food. There are nicer hostels with pools for better price. They may struggle to be beaten on atmosphere though.

    Fun hostel. Just so so disappointing to find out that they don’t change the sheets in between guests. We asked them for fresh sheets and told them we had discovered this was happening. We now have returned a different night to stay at the sheets are clearly still not being changed. It’s disgusting.

    The cleaning staff and security staff were very rude. The cleanung staff comes in before check out to clean room even if you are still sleeping they close the fans and don’t vhange the sheets to used beds!!! They leave the A/C very high and therefore has no cooling fonction at all they also barge into your room at 9am to shut it off... the parties are not yhat great pub crawls are not organised you have no clue what is going on... overall expensive for the experience would not reccomend
