I'm basing this review on the purpose we booked it for, which was for a short overnight stay and I'm not comparing it to five star hotels. We arrived late in Hanoi and were leaving early the following day, therefore we wanted somewhere cheap and basic to get some sleep and freshen up. North Hostel N.2 did the job, the...

Stayed here for half a night before we left for halong bay, it's a compact hostel with very narrow staircase for going up with a backpack. It served the purpose needed some where to catch up with sleep and got this hostel booked for £10 for the night. We requested for a taxi service which they arranged.

We stayed here one night, instantly wished we had booked for longer but due to a tight schedule on our travels through Vietnam we were unable to! From the moment we booked the hostel we were in constant contact with the owner via email! He even arranged our transfer from the airport and we paid for them both when we...

If you're a budget traveller looking for a cheap and nice place, look no further than here! The bed was comfy, the shower was nice and even though you have the option to add air con as a bonus, the fan was very strong so we probably didn't need the air con! The staff were very friendly and helpful and...

Construction work was going on in the 4th floor as we were in the hotel (July 2016). We were awoken every morning at 7:00 by drills and hammer and loud noises. It is impossible to sleep in the morning or to take a nap in the afternoon. Which is something you really may want to do in Hanoi! And yet...

Great little hostel not far from the lake Ho Hoan Kiem. Many of the breakfast serving cafes are just walking distance from North Hostel No.2. You can organize your daytours just from the reception. Our room was nicely decorated and had also balcony. Bed was comfortable. Very fast Wi-Fi! Easy to organize your doings or plans consulting with the owners...

We first came here from Phong Nah after the bus droped us at 6 am. We took a taxi to get here, and all we wanted was to buy tickets to Sapa. This amazing man opened his hotel for us, let us use the toilets, the wi fi and even made us coffee. He offered us a good deal to...
