First place I stayed in Hanoi as wanted somewhere off the plane. Typical Asian style room, had fridge and room service, quite basic for a superior room but again $10 a night. Nice location and very friendly staff. Backpackers this is ideal for, cheap, private, comfortable and clean. Would stay again and definitely recommend.

A friendly hotel with awesome staff! The owner was always looking after my satisfaction by asking me how was my night, if there was anything else they could do to improve my stay, etc. Very polite! The staff members were amazing, young people willing to help in whatever you need, going from booking a taxi to the airport to recommending...

Decided to book a single room her after reading the reviews. The room was basic but clean. The staff was very friendly and always great for joking around. Also booked my trip to Ha Long Bay though the hotel. They told me about the different options and what the prices were for each. And they even booked a room for...

Firstly it isn't a hotel, it is a hostel, which means we were woken up at 3am 4am 5am every night and when you are up at 6am for organised trips, this isn't a great start! Breakfast was terrible, they even said the chef wasn't the best cook, I'm not sure if this was a joke but they were right....

This place was so lovely. The staff went out of there way to welcome us and help us organise our day/taxis to and from the airport. The cost was cheap for what a big private room with a hot water shower, tv, free breakfast, a fridge. Couldn't recommend this place more. It is the perfect place to stay on a...

Stayed here before and after our trip to Halong Bay. Hostel was very helpful organising our 3d/2n boat and very accommodating when we changed our stay to a night either side rather than 2 nights before. I enjoyed the banana pancakes for breakfast. Hostel in a great location for the weekend night markets and lake! Always helpful answering all our...

This hotel really felt like coming back to your home after being in a bustling city all day. It is in a perfect location- only a few minutes walk from the lake- lots of shops around if you want to buy anything-and very easy accessible.

Good, very friendly staff and the location was suberb. Breakfast was also included, which was a nice bonus. Good clean sheets and towels, too. Wish they had had more showers and toilets for the dorm users though. That is, if i remember right, there was 12 of us in the dorm sharing the same facilities.

A warm welcome by Mr Mike Do and other staff when we first arrived Hanoi, a place where initially we were not familiar with. They showed their enthusiasm to tell us what Hanoi is all about instead of providing hotel services merely. They suggested absolutely fantastic local food with reasonable price and tourist attractions. The tours (Halong Bay and Sapa)...
