This has got to be one of the best hostels i have stayed at during my time travelling! It is a bit more expensive than the options around Vietnam and Hanoi but it definitely makes up for that in the quality of service and what it offers. At around 12 dollars a night you get a very comfortable, clean bed in a fully air conditioned dorm room. There is a safety box next to your bed that only your key fits into if you want to leave any valuables overnight of when you are out.
The facilities are great, having plenty of clean showers and toilets on every floor and a top floor internet cafe where you can use all the computers for free and even play some snooker at the snooker table. Definitely the cleanest showers and facilities that i have come across on my travels so was a pleasure to stay here.
The location of the hostel is great as its in the heart of busy hanoi where the main aim is to avoid the swerving beeping scooters before they hit you! The main shopping area and bars etc are a decent 10-15 minutes walk away if you want to get some serious shopping done, but there are many bars and clubs nearby if you dont wish to go far.
Without doubt, the best thing this hotel has to offer is its Halong Bay boat trip!! this is a must for you if you will be spending at least 4-5 days here. You have the option of the two-day or three day trip. I did the two-day trip but if i had an extra day would of done the three day as it was one of the best trips of my life so far!!! Just make sure you book the trip through Hanoi Backpackers as i knew some people who thought they would be smart and book with external sources to save some money and their trip was full of 40-50 years old and didnt contain any drinking games, late night parties and nudity!
Overall, wish i had longer in Hanoi but had to book a bus to Hoi An (from reception) as we had to get moving but will definitely be staying at Hanoi Backpackers if i return to Vietnam!
