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!).

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.

    The hostel is very open, clean and lively. A lot of solo travellers come here so very easy to meet people. There is something going on every night. Wilma and Elliot were my favs! They were always making sure everyone was having a good time and so friendly. I went on the castaway tour, so so fun and totally worth the money. But just some feedback- the food could have been a little better, after a booze cruise all day you want to come back to chips and pizza, not rice and veg! Also label the food

    Amazing staff great atmosphere they do warn you that this is a party hostel though so people coming in drunk at 2 am is a thing. They have so many cheap things you can book with the hostel itself save yourself the time and energy and book with them. Just wish I would have know that before I booked my cruise elsewhere

    A super fun party hostel right in the hustle and bustle of Hanoi. The hostel has great game nights and tours to do each day. It’s a party hostel but you can easily go to bed early if you wanted as the rooms are upstairs. Very clean as well. Would highly recommend!

    28 Nov 2019
    We were spoken to particularly rudely by one older Arrogant bald rep, who seemed to be focusing a light hearted evening of karaoke upon his own whims, rather than the will of his customers. Instead of telling us that he had crossed our request off the list, he allowed us to continue buying overpriced drinks before getting angry at us when we enquired about our request. The arbitrary manner in which he determined which songs were deemed acceptable even outdoes the pettiness of this review.
