I stayed in the Original Hanoi Backpackers in Hanoi, it is a fantastic hostel full of other backpackers that are out here to socialise and make friends. The atmosphere is amazing. I unfortunately got food poisoning when I was there (street food) and had a few days just in bed which was pretty terrible but the beds are comfy and the room is well air-conned. The staff are all very helpful and accommodating. The food is pretty good too, and free breakfast!
If you're going to be booking trips, don't do it through the hostel, do it at the Travel Agent just next door on the right as you leave the reception, the lady there is lovely and so helpful and a LOT cheaper than booking it through the hostel.
The place seems very secure with 24 hour security and they have lockers as well in the room.
They have lots of computers in the lobby which are free to use.
They also have a rooftop bar which is pretty cool with bbq's and a different thing on every day, (the keg days are the best - FREE BEER). They also have an awesome pub crawl every night so you can experience some very touristy hanoi nightlife. And finally a morning walk where you can see some cool sights and try some food.
All in all a really good hostel, definitely recommend going there.
