had a fantastic stay at blues hostel. Very friendly and accomodating staff who will do anything to help. I stayed in the dorm and met many happy travellers. Great location with easy walk to everything.
highly recommend this hostel in Hanoi!
Blue and his wife and their friends who helping running the hostel are the nicest people!
I accidentally picked the wrong backpack at the airport and just realised that at the hostel! Lan Anh (Blues wife) organised everything and called the airline that I get my bag back! Both of them are always helping you out if you need any help!
The hostel price is 5 dollars for dorm and 12$ for private room, including breakfast! There is a nice bar where you can have some beer/ cider/ chats with the other guests. The beds are very comfy and it's very clean!
If you want to buy or rent a motorbike - you can talk to Blue, he also owns a motorbike shop and gives you good advices! He never gave me this 'I'm just a customer-feeling' . More than that he wants you to be safe on the road and he's known for his quality! I didn't know how to ride motorbike so he took me a little out of town on calmer roads giving me drivers lessons for free!
I spent around two weeks there in total and I loved it! Coming definitely back here in my next trip!
The staff in this hostel are the best! They remember your name from the start. They are always willing to help you in the best possible ways. Besides that it is also fun to hang out with them. The showers, toilets and bedroom are clean. There are lockers in the bedroom where you can secure your most important belongings. The location is also perfect. The hostel is near the nightmarket, in the old quarter. And it is in the backpackers area, so you can easily meet up with other travellers. Definitely recommend this place!
Take your time to talk to Blue, your trip might change considerably. Free beer and breakfast makes it very interesting for the lowest price dorms in Hanoi.
