This hostel is in such a great location, within the Hanoi Old Quarter. It's a great spot for backpackers, as it's very close to the nightlife. It's on a small side street, just off a main corner in the Old Quarter, but it's well marked with signs. The check-in process was fine, but we were a little annoyed that we had to leave our passports there for 30 minutes, while we went up to our rooms. Luckily, there is an elevator, so we didn't have to climb any stairs after our long day of traveling.
The rooms were fine, although a little dark, and the beds were nice. The bathrooms are all updated.
There is a restaurant on the top floor for breakfast, and we thought the buffet was a little tired. By the time I got up there, around 9:30 AM, most things were picked over. They came out about 15 minutes later with fresh eggs and fruit, but I had already eaten.
