We went to book our overnight train to Sapa. The station itself seems fine, basic but adequate for its purpose. Unfortunately we found that the staff were incredibly rude, they were not interested in offering us their help or services and would rather look at...More

Nothing special about this place. A busy, unorganised, chaotic mess at points. Lots of work needed to improve and most of the staff are just rude

Adequate train station for travel. Do not expect to get quality food here. Stop before arriving at the station if you want food or snacks for travel.

It was pretty old, I just went to check out the train station because I feel the stations of cities define each places. A bit surprised it was not that nice at the capital of Vietnam.
