Fabulous rooms, large storage in under bed lockers, clean bathrooms checked on an hourly basis and 24 hour reception. A great option when returning from the Ha Giang Loop, and the designated travel desk are more than happy to assist with any queries with a variety of excursions and multi-day trips. The bar next door is popular with guests and non-guests with fun nightly events and a free keg every night. I very much recommend staying here but book quickly, it soon sells out!

Mad Monkey Hanoi has been a very good place to stay during my trip in the North of Viêt Nam. The staff is very welcoming and the facilities are really nice. I met incredibly nice people from the Mad Monkey team and noticed a wish to always go further in their ability to satisfy every backpackers. To live the madness spirit of this guesthouse ends up by creating a little family of really cool people. If you decide to joint this guesthouse, trust me you won’t be dissappointed !
