  • A really fun place to stay! Staff were really friendly and facilities were very good. A bit noisy at times but when you're in the mood to party at adds to the atmosphere.

  • A bustling party hostel with top notch facilities and staff. I rented a private room, and although it was expensive for Vietnam, the room was nicer than most regular hotel rooms I've stayed in, and had a hell of a lot more character. The hostel offers a wide variety of tours, also. This place is definitely aimed at the 20-something crowd, so if you're looking for a quiet hostel this is might not be your place.

  • This is a party hostel. If that is what you are looking for, it is one of the best. There is a party almost every night in the lobby area. If you are looking for something quieter, maybe take a room higher up. It is a brilliant place to meet new people and have a good time. Their tours however are all party tours and full of drinking. I'd recommend going somewhere else for booking tours.

  • The hostel was clean, strategically located and most importantly affordable. The staff, both local and foreign were very friendly and helpful. Whenever I had something to ask, they were quick to help and offered very useful advise. Dorms were clean and neat, toilets were also clean and the included breakfast was also a great bonus. If I fancied a local breakfast, there are plenty of food around like Banh Cuon, phos, xoi xeo or other local food to whet my appettite. All in all, excellent!

  • The Vietnamese staff were incredible, especially Snow! Go on a tour with her. It's perfectly located, but definitely a bro-packers scene. It's a good place to crash and meet people. They do a surprisingly good job of separating the rooms from the chaotic noise on the first level.

  • Well placed hostel in the absolute center of Hanoi. This is a party hostel and this means that every day at 16:00 the party kicks in; loud music gets turned on, cold beers are handed over from the bar and everybody enjoys themselfs.
