After a muderously long train trip from southern China, then a crazy taxi ride to the hostel we were prepared for the worst. luckily when we arrived the staff were bubbly, helpful and more than ready to assist with making the most out of Hanoi.
We were only staying the one night before heading out to Ha Long Bay for a boat cruise. The rooms were clean and without Air Con during the day which for us is awesome! I never understand why people love coming to hot countries and then stuff themselves into a sub zero room even though they are walking back out into the heat again at a later stage. Sadly the Air Con comes on during the night but i slept next to the window and opened it so didn't freeze.
We stayed at the old hostel for this one night and got to meet people upstairs in the hostel bar. Super cheap drinks (well not as cheap as roadside stalls but still cheap) and great staff all ready to party their arses off any time.
After our Ha Long Bay cruise we came back and stayed at the new Hostel which was even better, new big rooms (we got a private suite), huge common area and large tv room with balcony as well as so many cool things to do such as beer pong comps, free walking tours, sports matches on the big screens and again everyone here was super friendly.
If you are going to stay in Hanoi you can't get any better backpackers than Hanoi Backpackers Hostel!!
Can't wait to go back.
