I was recommended the Hanoi Hostel by a fellow traveller and I went straight there. Unfortunately there was no room at the Hanoi Hostel 1 so they invited me to go to the Hanoi Hostel 2, which is right on the parallel street. I stayed there on a small dorm with three other fellow backpackers and we enjoyed our stay...
