    Fantastic place to stay. They have working AC, the reception staff is really nice. There are lots of tasty food options right near by! The breakfast at this place was killer as not many places have breakfast, they even let us take to go for one our early mornings. Not a big common space to hangout but we weren't looking for that. Would definitely recommend. They give you towels and water too!

    The friendly and accommodating staff at hay hostel made our visit to Hanoi really easy - they were really helpful with organising trips to Ninh Binh and Sapa. Good location, decent breakfast and the rooms we stayed in were very spacious.

    I had a lovely time at this hostel! The staff is extraordinarily nice and always tries to help you to the best of their ability. Location is great as well, just right in the middle of old head quarter. Breakfast is nice and gets you immediately used to the early working hours of this town haha. The rooms are clean (not really cozy though, but enough when you just give there to sleep), WiFi works perfectly, just the bathrooms could be a tiny bit cleaner. I definitely recommend staying there!

    Perfect place to stay in Hanoi. I really like the honest and friendly way that this hostel helped us with our stay, organizing tours etc. It’s not a party hostel, I would not particularly recommend this place for meeting new people. But that didn’t matter for us, the atmosphere is still good and we checked out from the hostel with a good feeling about it. Thank you very much!

    Overall, decent stay. Great location. Room was very clean, had cleaning staff daily. Facilities were very well equipped (even with elevator). Breakfast was decent. However, there was no atmosphere and the staff were minimally attentive. Didn't meet anyone during my time at this hostel (not much of a hangout area) and the staff wasn't really friendly/interested in us. Staff was on phone playing games most of the time, only breaking to aid with requests such as calling a taxi.

    Very Good

    This is a good location to explore the city. It is an ideal place to put your head down once you arrive from the airport. Only a 10 minute walk from the 86 bus stop. It’s quiet. The breakfast is good but if you want authentic go out to the streets to find somewhere. It lacked an atmosphere. Other travelers didn’t want to chat and the staff only speak if you speak to them. Hay Hostel staff are always happy to help if you request it. They booked Halong bay for me to save the fuss for £150.

    Fine for a few nights, the double bedroom was spacious and the bed very big. It was not very clean, stains on the pillows and the bathroom was cleaned to the bare minimum. Best thing about this place is the location.

    Really good location. Basic but nothing special. Breakfast is OK. No social scene as there is no communal area. The dorms were OK but the bathroom a bit gross. Staff really nice though.
