North Hostel No. 2
Ranked #88 of 437 Speciality Lodging in Hanoi
Reviewed 4 March 2016

This is a small family run hotel in a quite side road. The owner is super friendly and helpful. The room is small but clean and the shower is hot and has good pressure. The bed was soft but not to soft - great! The rooms are small but you only sleep there so it is ok. There was a closet, table, fridge and TV as well. A big surprise for that price.
I will be back on the way out from Hanoi!

Room Tip: All the room windows go out to the same side. The higher you are the better

We booked a night here a few months ago and hoped to book a few more nights once we had arrived, but unfortunately they were full.. This time we booked way in advance to save the disappointment, lovely little place at an excellent price, perfect location and lovely owners.

We stayed 4 nights at this hotel. The room was tiny and quite outdated, walls paper thin and it smelled of the things to repel bugs from the blankets. However the bed was very comfortable, it was fairly clean, was very well located in the old quarter and the staff was super friendly and helpful. It is not a luxurious place in any way, but I would stay again. Just too bad they close the door at 23h, and people arriving late keep on ringing the door to get in, which can be heard throughout the building.

Super friendly staff. Clean rooms with fans and a comfy bed. It's located in a narrow side street so it's quiet at night. Pay extra for A/C. Cheap and in the old quarter a couple of minutes walk to everywhere you want to be. It's also close to Phungs motorbike shop so it's convenient if you are looking for bikes. Enjoyed our 3 night stay a lot.

So-so. Room was dusty and very small. A/C usage and breakfast is not included in room rate package subscribed. Don't expect much with the price of 10 USD per night for a twin room per person. To get to this place, make sure you stop at Hang Gai street, where Haspro food mart is located. Tam Thuong street is in between and is located in the small alley inside. Location wise-extremely near to Old Quarter within walking distance.
