It is a very beautiful house in a perfect location. Since most other options of this price range are located next to each other in a quite touristy area, this is surrounded by local markets and houses, which I found very nice. So this is perfect place for you, if you like to observe daily life of the Vietnamese people and also the culture, but if you are in Vietnam just to party, then this might not be the best option for you.
The host, Linh, is supernice, friendly and helpful, and can help you plan excursions to around Hanoi – and probably around other places in Vietnam too.
The dorm was very nice too, there are big lockers under the bunkbeds and curtains in front of your bed, so you have privacy when you sleep. Shower has hot water with good water pressure. Breakfast was very good too, coffee, eggs, noodles, bread, peanutbutter, jam and coffee, and the dining room is very pleasant. And everything was very clean too. Thank you!!
