The receptionist asked us if we were ok with sleeping in a dorm instead. We denied this and suddenly our room was available again (strange?!). In additon we were informed,... More

We booked a night online in the dorm beds via booking.com. We sent the hotel an email beforehand telling them we would arrive late, at 22h, after a 6h bus trip from Sapa. They answered we were very welcome and confirmed the booking. When we arrived after our trip, looking forward to a nice bed, we had to wait 10min... More

$6/night, six bed dorm: One toilet & shower for the room. Didn't seem to be a problem. Lockers, good air con and a pretty good breakfast till 10am Great location! The only downside was the mattress. Hard as a rock.

The selling point is its location. It is slightly off the main road thus minus the noise of the heavily congested main road. It is just 1 or 2 mins walk to the popular" beer corner" of Ta Hien and Luong Ngoc area. Sevice is good though they may make mistakes like allotting different types of rooms and booking day... More

Good place to stay in Hanoi, specifically in the Old Quarter. I loved the location. If you want to know and live the "madness" of the Old Quarter is a right place to stay. Friendly staff. Small but nice room. Good breakfast. Good value for money.
