The staff is very friendly and helpful but: The room was damp and moly, that's probably why it didn't smell nice. We had small red bugs and slightly bigger black bugs in our beds and not just 3 or 4... when we told the staff he didn't even bother looking, he must have known about that and we wish we...

We was in Hanoi first time. And we needed simple cheap hostel for 2 days. But... We found bed bugs on the bed and quickly left this place... Owner returned money. But only for room, where were bed bugs (we booked two rooms).

By far the cheapest, single, private room I found in Hanoi. For the price, this place is great: comfy bed, hot shower, and just far enough away from the madness of beer street to get a good night's sleep. Would definitely recommend to bargain hunters.

We were in this room for 5 hours resting and we were attacked by bed bugs, when we tell the guy we cannot stay here cause your place was infested, he started laughing and charged us half price for the room even though we didn't stay here for the night. Our bodies were full of bites, and we actually killed...

The ensuite room was basic but clean. The bed was actually quite large, which we liked. Internet was good, breakfast is Vietnamese bread with different choices like jam, sausage or egg and coffee, tea or lemon juice. The owner is friendly and willing to help with everything. They can organize tours and tickets too.

I spent 5 months travelling Asia and this was by far the worst experience. My friend and I needed to book a private room each for 1 month and we were delighted when management said that they had availability and even promised us a small reduction for staying for this extended period. 2 men working at reception confirmed this. After...

If your looking for a quick stop over this place is ok. It's cheap, very central. We had air con what works fine and the room was fairly big. However the bed covers had old mould stains on them, and the place needs a very good revamp it is falling to bits but in general they clean the rooms. If...

This was definitely the worst hostel experience I have ever had in my life. Booked a private room way in advance because I had a late flight and would be arriving in Hanoi in the early hours of the morning. They claim a 24 hour front desk but when I arrived I had to bang on the door for about...

This was by far the most horrible experience we had on our entire two month trip to Vietnam. I hope that this review may keep everyone that read it away, and thereby put Hoan Kiem Hostel out of business. They are NOT capable of running a hostel - this much is certain. Our horrid experience started with us calling from...
