We stayed here when we first arrived in Vietnam and were so pleasantly suprised when we were greeted with such warm and friendly staff.
Unfortunately my fiance was quite sick with tonsilitis for 3 days so we were confined to our room while I nursed him back to health! The lady at reception (I can't remember her name but we'll never forget her) took us to the nearest pharmacy and translated our problem to them so we could by some medicine. Also they asked me every day if he was ok and gave advise and concern. Nice touch when in a strange new City!
All the staff speak perfect English and are very honest and helpful when advising tours...not pushy at all and respect your budget and wishes.
The food here is very good! We ate there every night as my fiance Ryan wasn't up for any Asian food while he was unwell. Great western food and Vietnamesse too!
We arranged a 2 day and 1 night boat trip to Halong Bay which was great. Although I would advise you to take your own drinks including water, beer, soft drinks! As NO drinks are free OR CHEAP on the boat! A small water is normally 5,000-10,000 Dong and on the boat they are double the price. Even the tea and coffee at breakfast isn't free and the readily top your cup up without telling you then charge you for it later. We relayed this info back to the lady and she wasn't aware at all and promised to warn future travellers, infact she was quite annoyed and shocked by it!
The hostel safely stored the bulk of our luggage while we were away on the trip which made life alot easier as we only needed to take 1 small over night bag with us.
We can't fault this hostel!
Choose this hostel or Little Hanoi 2 as we also stayed there - see review.
Otherwise it was fun and well worth seeing!
