Established in December 2004 by Michael and Max, 2 Aussies living in Hanoi. The Hanoi Backpackers' Hostel was the first and still remains Hanoi's only International Standard hostel.
Situated down a quiet street just 50m from the front steps St Joseph's Cathedral in the centre of town and a 3 minute walk to Hoan Kiem Lake. The hostel is perfectly located to explore the Old Quater.
With 42 big, comfy bunk beds each with its' own locker, night light and a convenient shelf for Ipods and stuff. Linen is included with a very fluffy pillow and a warm duvet in winter.
The beds are divided evenly between 1 Nunnery (girls only) and 3 mixed rooms. All the rooms are air-conditioned and have an enclosed en-suite with a separate toilet and shower (hot water of course).
Couples are not forgotten, there is also 2 double suites for those who value their privacy.
The all inclusive price gets you breakfast, all day tea/coffee and use of the ADSL internet (yes,the PCs have Skype).
Because we are the social cats we have BBQ's on the terrace followed by nights out to the wild side of Hanoi are a regular occurence.
For those of you just passing through we offer a transit stop so you can securely store you pack while you wonder arround Hanoi and grab a shower before leaving on night trains and buses for other exciting destinations.
For your convenience we offer free pick ups from Hanoi Train Station and can arrange airport transfers on request.
