I don't usually stay in hostels, but decided to stay here for 3 nights based on reading favourable reviews, and was very pleased with my stay. Amy & Tom were so kind & helpful. They arranged my airport transfers. The room was private, clean & comfortable. The shower & bathroom are one in all, but this was not a problem....

The Golden Time Hostel was a nice and clean place not to far away from the city center. The staff is really nice and try to help you with whatever you need. When you wake up you can call the staff and they will bring your breakfast on your room!! A good place to go!

From the moment we arrived Tom and Ammy were fantastic hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them, storing our luggage while we went on over night trains to northern Vietnam and a trip to Halong Bay.

We stayed here for 3 nights visiting Hanoi and Ha Long Bay. To be honest my first night wasn't good sleep. The room we had wasn't that clean my bed sheet was dusty. The toilet/bathroom door lock doesn't work. But the positive side here is that, staff are super helpful.

Fantastic, friendly service! Yes, this is a budget place, but you get a good sized, clean room, daily servicing and a decent breakfast. Yes, the bathroom is an all in one open shower space so everything get wet, but this isn't uncommon in Asia. Staff are extremely helpful and help book us for our Sapa and Halong Bay trips for...
