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... More

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.

Amy, the girl on reception was so helpful and friendly. She made us feel very welcome. The room was very clean and had a huge bed and tv. Bathroom was very small but spotless. Perfect base for exploring the city.

Lovely little hostel in a good location. We felt very looked after by the Golden Time team, they gave us water and fruits when we arrived and organised a Halong Bay trip as well as a bus down to south Vietnam. Very helpful staff and nice rooms as well!

This hostel is a gem. Great location, within 5 minute walk to the old quarter, making it both convenient and quiet enough to get a good nights sleep! The beds were the MOST comfortable beds we have slept in thus far (currently been traveling for 2 months) and the staff is what made this place special. From the gentlemen (didn't... More

We stayed here our 2nd time in Hanoi and it made a world of a difference. Right away we were welcomed by the staff with big smiles and warm greetings.
