I only stayed here one night (the one on Ma May), because I couldn't stand it. There is no air conditioning during the day, so the whole place is stinking hot. The computers barely work, you have to look around forever to find one even to just get on facebook. The common area downstairs is ridiculously loud at all hours of the day or night, and not just because of the obnoxious drunkards, but also because they crank their music up louder than I ever would (and I love loud music) even during the daytime! It just makes the whole place come across as super unchill.
To top it off the place is very expensive for Vietnam. They offer a couple of options for Ha Long Bay tours but if you go just down the street you can get better offerings for literally a quarter of the price.
I can't recommend this place, I left and went to stay in a beautiful private room just down the street with two double beds, AC, my own hot shower, and a TV for a half the price of a dorm at Hanoi Backpacker's Hostel. Avoid.
