“Clean rooms, comfy beds and helpful staff”
Reviewed 25 May 2012

Really liked the staff, they were extremely helpful and fun. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. With big lockers in the dorms. Breakfast was ok for the price.

Reviewed 3 May 2012

For US$6 per night for a clean dorm room, this place fits any backpacker budget. The staff was really helpful to show explain all the places to visit in the Old Quarters of Hanoi. When I come back, will stay here or their US$12 private rooms at their sister property across the street --- it is called Elizabeth Hotel.

Reviewed 9 March 2012

This hostel is on the east side of the Old Quarter, 10 minutes walk from Long Bien bus station. I stayed in a dormitory that sleeps 4 people. The room was clean, although luggage had to be carried 3 floors up a narrow staircase. This was not a hassle for me but may put off those with lots of heavy luggage. Breakfast was a nice surprise - a choice of noodles, fried eggs, fruit, sweet breads and baguettes.
The free wifi had a tendancy to drop out but there where 2 PC's with free internet for guests in the lobby. They also minded my luggage for free after check out.

Room Tip: Just watch your head on the staircase!
