About Vietnam Backpacker Hostels - Downtown

Located in the heart of Hanoi?s Old Quarter, The Downtown Hostel is close to delicious street food, cheap Bia Hoi (fresh beer), pumping bars and is a short walk from the Original Hanoi Backpackers? Hostel near St Joseph?s Cathedral.

Our Bar & Restaurant serves delicious comfort food, pizzas, pastas, burgers and some of Hanoi?s favourite street foods. There are nightly festivities to keep you entertained and our happy hours will keep you back pocket happy too.

Accommodation Information

Downtown offers both dorm and private rooms,each room is air-conditioned during the night to make sure you have a comfortable nights sleep. Breakfast is included and we also have placed hydration stations around the hostel, especially important after a big night out!!

Location Information

The hostel is a 15 minute walk from the Airport shuttle stop located at 1 Quang Trung St and approximately 1.5km from the Hanoi Train Station.

Hanoi International Airport is approximately 45min to 1 hour from the centre of Hanoi. Airport shuttles are about ($3US/person) and taxis for ($25-$30US) are available from the arrivals terminal.

A hassle free airport transfer can be arranged by us from as little as US$23 for a 4 seat car or US$25 for a larger 7 seat people mover. To have us arrange a driver to meet you when you arrive at Hanoi International Airport, please use the contact form on the right to send your flight details. Be aware, some shuttle and taxi drivers operating from the airport, train and bus stations accept commissions for taking unsuspecting travellers to budget hotels that claim to work with us.

The Downtown Hanoi Backpackers? Hostel is unmistakable with its large metallic with red lettering sign above the sliding glass doors, as seen in the above photo. If the shuttle bus or taxi stops directly outside a hotel that does not have this, you have been taken to the wrong address.

If you find yourself in this situation, decline politely and make your way to Ma May street where you can ask one of the local shops or restaurants to point you in the direction of our hostel.

Cancellation Policy

Customers can cancel their reservation free of charge up to 1 day before arrival. After this date, charges will be applied by the property up to the first nights cost of the reservation, unless otherwise stated in the property’s conditions. Deposits paid are non refundable.
