For starters, this hotel/hostel is located on the main party street with paper thin walls that have music blasting through them till quite late (on weekends its 2am) so not a great place if you enjoy your sleep. But, that was the least of my worries during my stay here. My backpack that contained nearly everything that I was traveling...

Great hotel friendly staff and cheap price. Only $6 a night and you get your own little pod bed so it feels private. The hostel can also book you trips to ha long bay and they even arranged my airport taxi. Definitely recommend this place. Also in a great location right in the old quarter.

Stayed here for a night before going to halong bay the rooms are small but we knew that in a good area to not anything to shout home at! Maybe a bit to much money for worth! Wouldn't stay here more than 3 days!

Awesome location!! Right in the heart of it all. The rooms are small but you pay for what you get and I really enjoyed it! Air con is awesome!! Only reason not a 5 was the lady trying to rip us off with our booking and tricked us with a tour. But did refund us. Would recommend!

This place was great until we booked another night for when we returned from Halong Bay and were moved to a different hotel when we checked in. I would rate it higher if I was confident they could manage bookings. The walls are quite thin, but the beds were comfy, the showers hot and the place was fairly clean.

I myself didn't mind this room but fell asleep immediately. My travel partner, however, was kept up all night by loud noises for adjoining rooms - you could here the buttons on the air con being pressed (not great for sound privacy). While small it did the trick space wise, and can't complain for the money. The transfer that we...

The location is perfect, right in the heart of the Old quarter. Staff is nice, some speak better English than others. The rooms are tiny but tidy. The price is cheap. Perfect if you want a place to sleep and leave your bag while you are out on a day trip and you want good access to streetfood, travel agencies,...

We stayed here one night. The price was 315,000 dong for twin room. The room is with a bunk bed and the madras is so hard, our backs were aching the following day. There is not much room for your luggage either. The bathroom is shared with 3 other rooms or so. It is in fine condition and looks good....
