Halong bay party cruise they offer May 27, 2014
For $5/bed this place is quality! Free wife/net, breakkie, free beer happy hour from 7:30-8:30pm, great atmosphere at the bar(Easy to meet people, and cheap buckets!), and great location. The dorm rooms have a large bathroom with a great shower, lockers. Staff are really friendly too!

Did the 3day Halong Party cruise they offer was brilliant! Staff on the tour was perfect, especially the tour guide, super friendly and attentive, speaking perfect English and could turn on the party well:) on cruise was just joung people, usually backpackers from all around the world. Cruise was clean and everything works well especially sound system. Food was very nice and more than enough. You must get on 3 day and 2night cruise because second night on the island is breathtaking! Beach like this I could see only in Hollywood films. Def recommend this place and the Halong bay they offer.. Cheers!

It was a decent place, 4/5. Good location, lockers and facilities. Horrible breakfast of bread, a banana, and butter jam. An AWESOME feature was free beer (sometimes buckets) every day between 7-8. #winning

Central Backpackers has a great location. It is a short walk to Hoan Kiem Lake, there are several restaurants right around the area. Both local Vietnamese places and western style food. There's an ATM down the street and around the corner. There's a small grocery store up the block and around the corner.

The place has free happy hour every night at 7:00pm, all the beer you can drink. It's an excellent way to meet fellow travelers to go out after with and to exchange travel stories and tips about about Hanoi and Vietnam.

The beds are hard as rock but I've heard that is common here in Vietnam. Breakfast is quite basic. If you desire a proper breakfast you'll have to look elsewhere. And it is not your posh accommodation, but for the average backpacker I would definitely recommend it.

Fun place to stay in Hanoi May 01, 2012
It's in a good location by of the Old Quarter and you can easily walk or taxi to most things.

The dorms were great, big, clean, secure and had good air con.There is a safety box next to your bed that only your key fits into if you need to leave anything in there. they have a top floor internet cafe where you can use internet for free.

The Staff were really friendly and helpful There is a travel desk by reception that helps you book bus ticket etc at a good place they also do tours to Halong Bay and Sapa.

I booked my Halong Bay tour through the backpackers as I had it recommended from other travellers to do it through here. It is a bit more expensice than what you can get at other places however I am glad I did it through the Backpackers as it was alot of fun and worth the extra money.

I've booked here as well. What made the Halong Bay tour worth the extra money by booking through the hostel? I may do the same.
