Arrived in this area of Hanoi on a bus with nowhere to stay, after a quick look at positive reviews, stopped in Luxury Backpackers and so glad I did! Was here for 3 nights and really enjoyed my stay.
1. The staff is just so nice. My Nguyen always had a genuine smile on her face and was always there to help. I saw them often helping travelers plan their tours, though that wasn't really for me, i prefer doing my own thing. No pressure from them though.
2. Ahhhh, a hostel with privacy curtains seriously makes all the difference. Enough said.
3. Rooms were nice. When I first walked in in the afternoon, it was a little hot and smelled kind of funky in my room, but after they cleaned that day it felt very clean and cool from there on out. They even put a very nice lemony oil diffuser which made the whole space much more fresh.
4. Good location! I thought i was great with directions but Hanoi confused the heck out of me. All I know is that I would walk around all day for miles and miles and eventually I'd find myself right back by the hostel by happy accident.
5. It's not a party hostel by any means, but the front area downstairs is a great place to meet fellow friendly travelers. I was a solo female and whenever I felt tired I enjoyed sitting in the little chairs in front just people watching or chatting with whoever came in.
6. Breakfast included is very tasty!! I would recommend, but there are also some great early morning pho stands that disappear later in the morning, so I would recommend skipping it one day and going in search of something a little more authentic.
