  • Decent hostel, clean and well located, good for someone looking for an international and impersonal ambiance. Could improve in customer service, staff seems to be always very busy with little time to answer general questions about the city. Also didn't like the "free breakfast" system, where you have to pay extra to have a banana with your pancakes...
    Owner Comment

    Hey, Thank you for taking the time to leaves us a review, we really appreciate the feedback as we always want to improve. I will be sure to continue to work with whole team to improve customer service as we recognise that every question, big or small, is important. The free breakfast we offer has 3 options; eggs with toast, fruit salad or pancakes with honey all have options to add extras that some people may want. Thanks again for staying with us, safe travels. Regards Alex Gelling General Manager VBH Original Hostel

  • If you're looking for a frat-party style experience, with loud reps and a culture revolved around getting wasted with other travellers then this is your place. Felt very disconnected to Hanoi, its locals and the culture. There was a pressure from some to join in with everything and not much respect for those not wanting to. The Vietnamese staff were really helpful though and would recommend the walking tour. Disappointed the dorm room toilet was blocked and unusable but otherwise okay if basic.
