The Golden Time Hostel was a nice and clean place not to far away from the city center. The staff is really nice and try to help you with whatever you need. When you wake up you can call the staff and they will bring your breakfast on your room!! A good place to go!

We stayed here for 3 nights visiting Hanoi and Ha Long Bay. To be honest my first night wasn't good sleep. The room we had wasn't that clean my bed sheet was dusty. The toilet/bathroom door lock doesn't work. But the positive side here is that, staff are super helpful.

Fantastic, friendly service! Yes, this is a budget place, but you get a good sized, clean room, daily servicing and a decent breakfast. Yes, the bathroom is an all in one open shower space so everything get wet, but this isn't uncommon in Asia. Staff are extremely helpful and help book us for our Sapa and Halong Bay trips for...

First of all, it is important to mention that this hotel is a budget hotel. If you are looking for excellent facilities and services, it is not going to cover your expectations. However, within the budget hotel, Golden Time Hostel is an excellent choice. We were looking for a place cosy, clean and well located for a good price and...

Visiting Hanoi by foot while staying at the hostel was very good. Near the lake, the old town and the french quarter. Very nice service personal. Clean rooms. Funny vietnamese shower construction! Breakfast is no big deal.
