Liked: Decent location and the walking tour helped to orientate. Huge lockers for all your stuff so it felt secure. Pretty social too, most people very friendly.

Disliked: Only 1 shower in a room for 10 people so I often had to walk to another floor to use another bathroom.

Liked: I'd stayed here about 3 years ago and always remembered it as a nice place to stay. Its still as good as I remember. Only stayed one night but left my rucksack in the storage. The staff let me use the showers and hang out at the hostel until my night train which was great.

Disliked: Some of the girls in the dorm were a bit inconsiderate with making noise when they came in but thats not the hostels fault.

Liked: The staff is very helpful in terms of touring in Hanoi and beyond! Every morning, a staff member gives a mini tour of the city. It's very helpful since Hanoi is a packed and has crazy confusing streets. Also, one of the staff members set up a whole plan making our way down to HoiAn full of activities, and of course Backpackers accommodations. Wonderful staff and wonderful chain of Backpacker Hostels!Bathrooms are lovely with a bathtub and curtain!! Woooow:)Love free breakfast too! And free water refilling coolers.

Disliked: We stayed at the Original Backpackers Hostel. I think the Downtown location is a little better. That's not really a dislike, just a preference:)
