The Hanoi Backpackers' Hostels now has a 2nd great locations! The Hanoi Backpackers' Hostel on Ma May is our newly opened, purpose built hostel located in the middle of Hanoi's Old Quarter.

We have designed the whole building with comfort, cleanliness and security in mind with out forgetting that it should look cool as well.

All of our rooms are air-conditioned and the hot water never gets turned off.

The private boudoirs are definitely Flashpacker and they all have great views of the city, funky bathrooms, flat screen TV with cable.

The Chillout Lounge takes up the entire 5th floor and is decked out with a pool table, 10 PCs connected to the internet, a TV corner with bean-bags, sofa and a 55 inch TV with a hard disk full of movies and an out door terrace to chill on.

The Restaurant & Bar on the ground floor serves great comfort foods at reasonable prices and the regular happy hours get the party started and keep it going.

Our knowledgeable, friendly staff with help you with any travel request and advice you need to help you make the most of your time in Vietnam.

So see you for the Happiest Hour (half price beer and pizza) from 5 to 6 pm everyday.

The HBH Crew.

All our rooms are non smoking.
Prices are per person per night.

If you are arriving via Noi Bai International Airport we highly recommend pre-arranging an airport pick up. If you wish to make you way in on the airport shuttle get off at the Vietnam Airlines office in Quang Trung ST. Ask the nearest taxi to take you to 9 Ma May, it should cost no more than a couple of dollars.

From the train station make your way to the Red Bridge Pagoda on Hoan Kiem Lake, walk up Hang Be St, turn left on to Hang Bac and right into Ma May St. Continue up Ma May and we are just on the curve in the road. We will send you a map and more detailed instructions when you book.
