We stayed here for 6 nights whilst in Hanoi and it has easily been our favourite place to stay in south east Asia. We have been travelling 6 months so stayed in lots of places but this was the best for us! The room we had was big with a huge bed, wardrobe, desk, tv, sofa, fridge&kettle. The ensuite bathroom...

The room was fine, but there was no light so I felt like in a box. Since there was no place to hang out in my room I expected to have so space at the reception, but everything there is very tiny. The staff was extremely helpful and kind. The trips offered by the hostel are much too expensive (the...

The staff here are incredible! I felt so welcome, they helped with taxis travel plans, recommendations, tours and shuttles. The rooms at the front have lots of windows but very loud. I also stayed at the back with a small view of the Lake that was much quieter. The hotel is centrally located and if you go to Sapa or...

The reason I chose this hotel is because of it's location. Practically next to Sapa Express office, which is extremely convenient as I have to report to the office at 6.45am. Staff is friendly. Prepared a takeaway strawberry jam baguette for me when I have to leave at 6.45am and breakfast is only serve after 7am. Am extremely touched by...

We are a family with three children (17, 16, 13) and this hotel was our last hotel in Vietnam. There was no pressure in selling tours unlike we heard how most hotels operate in Hanoi. Free coffee, tea and bananas all day long. Rooms were spacious, high ceilings and kingsize double bed with comfortable matresses. There was even a bath...

Best value for the money and centrally located in Old town. Neat and clean rooms. All the bars to local restaurants are in walking distance.

Cannot fault the staff. Amenities very functional - I felt safe here. Only downside is after talking with other travellers we were in the most hectic part of town which was a bit confronting for our first destination into Vietnam. The other side (west) of the lake is classier and North is less hectic but if you want to dive...

Lots of bars and street food just around the corner - the hostel is in the backpacker area next to everything you need. Breakfast was nice (self-catering), staff very friendly and helpful, and as it's a very small hostel awesome familial atmosphere. Definitely my first choice for my next visit to Hanoi
