Central location and a helpful staff make for a nice place to stay when visiting Hanoi! Rooms are clean and the shower is amazing. Breakfast could be a lot better. All in all a good place to stay, for a low price

It was definitely more like a hotel than a hostel. The rooms were spacious, comfy beds and very clean. We ended up staying here for 6 nights as we were that relaxed. It's nice to escape the hustle and bustle of the city in a place like this. Michael at reception was so friendly he always tried his best to...

We stayed in a double room which was really nice, clean and large. Breakfast is in a room with a beautiful view over Hanoi at the top of the hotel. Good selection for breakfast. Overall, very good value for money.

Ok place. The 6 bed dorms are too narrow and sort of old, not a lot of room but people are friendly. There is also an option for private rooms for a pretty decent price! Internet not working on the floors at all despite advertised. Not that much of a great place. Just ok.

May de ville is definetly a good place to Stay at, I stayed in a doorm which was worth the price of 5$ a night. The breakfast was not the best but ok. Good location, close to the lake, museums, party and restaurants. The service in the lobby was really good!
