Whatever you do don’t book a bus to go anywhere with this hostel. They booked us to the wrong place and we still payed the money to get to where we wanted to go (was more expensive than where they booked us too) limited time at the place wanted to go to as well so now our whole plan is ruined basically. Did not really enjoy our stay at the hostel either and some of the staff was quite rude to us.

Ga Hostel Hanoi is a great place to stay. Aside from being budget friendly, the staff are very friendly too. There's breakfast, good internet connection and you can even leave you bags if you decide to go some other places even after your checkout. The cooking class is great too. You can have a chance to eat with the staff for the food that you have just prepared. Definitely would recommend this place and would be back here to stay for my next Hanoi visit.

The hostel is located right at the heart of the capital. Just a minute of walk out you can enjoy the atmosphere at the busiest district.
The room, bed and toilet are clean.
They allowed us to leave the luggage at the reception for whole day to travel around the city while waiting for our trip to Sapa.
Our dissatisfied points:
- We were not informed about the check out time ( which is 11pm - earlier than normal hotels). So we were quite surprised in last minute to plan our trip in the last morning in Hanoi.
- We booked for 3 beds since November 2017. On the check in date, I was the second guest to check in the dorm room of 10. But when i asked to switch the bed, reception said all beds were booked at that night. But during the night, it was noone else except our group of 3 and another guest checked in. Can the reception be more flexible next time so that we have better comfy bed to sleep? Noone actually checked in to use those nice location beds..

Room tip: The hostel is inside a very small alley. To save space, the stair is very small and steep.

In terms of a hostel, it's small, quite with decent rooms. But where it differs is the service. The staff there will show you around, take you food shopping and prepare local meals with you. They even held a Christmas dinner for us while we were there. The tour bookings are reasonably priced and the advice they give you is excellent. Any issues and they seem to be able to fix them. The location is great, close to beer street, the lake and you can spend hours exploring the streets. They also offer local area tours with students looking to improve their English, this must be taken advantage of when staying there.

Room tip: I always prefer bottom bunks away from the windows

Ga Hostel is an amazing place to stay. It is small and intimate with comfortable rooms, clean showers, a great lounge to hang in (with a smart TV), and amazing staff.

This is the only place I've stayed in Vietnam where the staff actually hang out and go out with you on the weekend. The breakfast is DIY and has good variety which is a great change from most places.

It is easy to walk by the little alley that GA is in (just look for the sign on the tree and then follow the colorful houses), but this is what makes it great. Nestled in the energetic and bustling old Quarter, the hostel, deep in it's little alley, is a bubble of relaxing quiet. This is probably the best place in the old quarter to get a good sleep.
